Mooncake @ Lai Ching Yuen, Grand Millennium KL


Hello folks! How's your raya holiday? Good I suppose? Time flies too? Three days holiday has gone, in a blink of an eye? Can't wait for the next celebration? Hehe.. Mooncake festival is around the corner! Yipee!

Chef Kong with the charcoal Snowskin dough.

For your information, our Chinese Mooncake Festival falls on 30th of September (Sunday). Whether you're planning to have a big party or small gathering, few pieces of mooncake must be present. Imagine sitting and chatting with your family or relatives or maybe friends under the starry night, sipping a hot cup of tea, giggling ... how warm and enjoyable isn't it? ;)

Before the Mooncake workshop, we had a simple and delectable 9-courses dinner.

Doubled Boiled Chicken with Clam and White Cabbage.

The soup comes naturally sweet, you can literally tell at the first sip, thanks to the chicken and cabbage. 
The soup was so pure and clear, and ambrosial. Doubled boiled soup has actually 'locked' all the flavor in that particular tureen. 

Deep Fried Golden Mushroom with Soft Shell Crab with Salt and Pepper

Crunchy and salty, with a lil bit hint of peppery spiciness ,all I can say was greasy, but satisfying. 

Barbecue Roasted Pork with Honey

This was sinfully good. The lard layer that melts instantly when it touches your warm and 'cushiony' tongue; the moment you bite on the crispy-charred-outer-layer of the caramelized sugar- heavenly. 

Homemade Beancurd with Angled Luffa Guard and Scallop

The beancurd was fantastically delicious, I love homemade soy product, I don't know why, but so far, I've never encounter not-tasty beancurd or tofu. Hehe.. Needless to say, the translucent-opaque gravy was mellow and gratifying. 

Braised Bamboo Fish Head In Claypot

Wasn't sure what type of fish they used, but it was certainly deep-fried until remarkably crispy and fragrant , yet not greasy at all; then drenched in a type of brackish and a slight spicy black gravy. I even swallow the bones, I kid you not. It was utterly delectable,and makes me don't even wanna waste a single bone!!!

Fried Australian Asparagus with XO Sauce

Crunchy asparagus, simply tossed with chili oil and XO sauce. Each fiber was evenly coated with the infused  shrimp flavor. I love it. Simply love it. 

Braised Local Loh Mee

Thick and fat 'loh mee' immersed in thick corn starch egg gravy.
I love adding loads of vinegar to give an extra sourish pungency to the dish. It indeed triggers my appetite! 

Sea Coconut with Red Date and White Fungus.

Ladies, make sure you finish your white fungus, it contains loads of natural collagen! 

After a full course dinner, we proceed to the mooncake workshop!

The clumsy lady . =P

There are 8 types of snowskin flavors, which is the red bean paste (my accustom favorite), and green tea lotus paste (another all-time-favorite); there are also funky flavors such as pure dates paste, pandan lotus paste, white lotus paste, passion fruit lotus paste, durian paste and spirulina lotus paste.
No doubt, no question , my favourites are the green tea and red bean flavor.  (that's why i am the founder of *Winks*.

There are also traditional baked moon cakes available in Lai Ching Yuen too!
Selection of : White lotus paste, red bean paste, white lotus with egg yolk, assorted nuts.
I am a huge fan of desserts, so, basically, everything taste good to me. Hehehe...^^ (I'm a fatty and I know it)

So, have you got yourself (at least)a box of moon cakes yet? If no, then it's time...
