The St. Regis Singapore Mooncakes – What are the new flavours in 2016?
Tantalize your palates this Mid-Autumn Festival with Yan Ting’s four new combinations and creative snow skin mooncakes. Unveil the refreshingly citrusy flavour of pomegranate that balances the sweet red bean chendol paste as you sink your teeth into the Pomegranate Truffle with Red Bean Chendol Paste Snow Skin Mooncake ($75 / box of 8). This introduction is a fascinating marriage of an uplifting burst of flavours and a myriad of beautiful contrasting colours.
Also newly launched this year are the Salted Peanut Truffle with Black Sesame Paste Snow Skin Mooncake ($75 / box of 8) and the Purple Sweet Potato with Water Chestnut and Salted Yam Paste Snow Skin Mooncake ($75 / box of 8). The former boasts a savoury-sweet mooncake, infused with black sesame paste that highlights the salted peanut encased within a milk chocolate truffle – a sublime union of flavours. On the other hand, the latter features traditional ingredients of popular Cantonese desserts. Consisting of a lightly sweet combination that is enhanced with water chestnut bits, the familiar Chinese aromas from the first bite whets your appetite for more.
Moreover, for those with a fondness for salted egg yolk flavour, the Portuguese Custard Paste Snow Skin Mooncake ($73 / box of 8) makes its debut this year. Infused within the yellow-hued snow skin is a fragrant and smooth mixture, a hint of sweet and salty, that lingers on the palate. Fans of Mao Shan Wang Durian will be delighted to hear the return of Yan Ting’s Mao Shan Wang Durian Indulgence Snow Skin Mooncake ($118 / box of 8). This features rich luscious chunks of the premium-grade majestic tropical fruit, exuding robust flavours and alluring aromas.
