Fresh Meat Moon Cakes (鲜肉月饼) – Shanghai, China

Advertisements

I definitely need to share this with all my readers here. To maybe all Asians in Southeast Asian countries, moon cakes are probably known to us as those round sweet lotus seed filling cakes that we eat during the Mid-Autumn Festival… But in these parts from Shanghai and up north of China, these meat pies are known as moon cakes to them. And the best part is, they are in sale all year round! One of my colleagues bought for me when I was working in Shanghai and this is really awesome! Check out the pics!

Box packaging
6 in a box
Fill with loads of minced pork
See how juicy the meat is… pastry is also very flaky!
Address of shop… Sorry for the flakes on top… was munching these moon cakes while taking this pic… couldn’t resist!

Rating: 5/5. 

Taste: Really awesome. Once you start, you can’t stop at one…

Portion: The pork fillings inside are filled to the brim of the cake. Wholesome is the word!

Service: It’s a takeaway shop, long queue everyday, service ok only.

Ambience: N.A.

Price: RMB3.50 each… maybe price increased.

RTE: If I’m in that area I would pack one box!

Location: See last pic.

 

 

哈肯舖手感烘焙 Hogan Bakery – Taipei, Taiwan

Most tourists who visits Taipei don’t go for bakeries like I do. Cos I have a passion for breads! I just can’t resist them and I heard from my friend in Taipei, she said this is an award winning one. So since I was there for lunch, I went there to get some of their breads to try. Breads are good but I still feel Top Pot Bakery has a better texture to their breads.

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Very good. Different texture from Top Pot Bakery but nice nevertheless. Didn’t try their award winning one cos all were sweet. I’m more to savory side.

Portion: Average

Service: Very good

Ambience: A little crampy when choosing the bread… maybe cos of my size… ;P

Price: See bill

RTE: Yeah!

Location: They have 6 outlets. The one I went is at Banqiao. http://www.hoganbakery.com.tw/eshop//article/index.php?ncid=79
