Man Fu Yuan (Intercontinental Hotel Singapore) Mooncakes 2012
Mid Autumn is getting more interesting as we see more hotels/restaurants coming up with unique designs or flavours. Take my favourite Man Fu Yuan for example, they have specially crafted 13 varieties of mooncakes comprising of snowskin and baked mooncakes.
DURIAN LOVERS ALERT!
The new creation this year is the Snowskin ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Durian Mooncake with Coconut（冰皮猫山王榴梿椰子皇月饼）. Premium ‘Mao Shan Wang’ durians are handpicked to create a thick pulp which is then combined with fragrant coconut milk, which is definitely a treat for durian purists.
