Mid-autumn festival is approaching again! What mooncakes are you planning to get? Baked vs snow-skin mooncakes? For the past many years, my preference have always been to go for baked mooncakes. But recently, I discovered the yummilicious vegetarian snow-skin mooncakes from Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, the largest Buddhist Monastery in Singapore. The prices are really reasonable too.
Prices for baked mooncakes range between $32 to $45 per box of 4 while for snow skin, the prices range from $38 to $40 per box of 4 or $30 per box of 8. This is probably one of the most pocket-friendly mooncakes that you can find in town these days. If box of 4 is too much, you can get them in single pieces, also at very reasonable prices.
The choice of mooncakes include:
- White Lotus Paste
- Red Lotus Paste
- Hawaii Nut White Lotus Paste
- Olive Seed Red Lotus Paste
- Green Tea Paste with Melon Seed*
- Coffee Paste with Melon Seed
- Mixed Nuts Paste
- Durian Snow Skin*
- Pandan Snow Skin
- Mint Paste Snow Skin*
* Recommended Flavours
(Durian Snowskin Mooncake)
The packaging boxes are nice and elegant-looking.
Sale of these vegetarian mooncakes are available from now until 8 September 2014 at the monastery's dining hall, between 9.30am to 3pm daily. For enquiries about the mooncakes, please call 6849 5300.
