Recently I got to try Xin Cuisine Mooncakes with my friends!
One of the highly recommended will be Xin Cuisine's signature Mini Special Egg Custard with Egg Yolk Mooncake. The rich, smooth and endless elegance of the enchanting creamy custard ensconced in a lightly baked outer crust has earned it the best seller status, accolades and enthusiastic appreciation alike.
Xin Cuisine is also bringing back other perennial favourites together; For a more traditional take, there would be the flaky crust and flavourful textures of the Teochew Yam Paste Mooncake. I love their Yam Paste Mooncake too! =)
For snowskin aficionados, you can take their pick from a range of heady flavours including the Soursop and Chocolate Crunch and Green Tea Lotus Paste with Chivas Chocolate.
You can tell we just can't have enough of their mooncakes!!!
Check out their delightful mooncakes!!!
