The variety of mooncakes available in Singapore is not limited to the traditional baked Cantonese version, snowskin mooncakes and flaky-crusted Teochew-style mooncakes. Dragon Phoenix Restaurant's Mini Cheese Mooncakes ($38 for a box of 20) come with a tender shortcrust pastry crust is a great baked mooncake alternative for those who dislike the richness of the quintessential Cantonese version.I loved how the tender and flaky pastry of these two-bite mooncakes simply crumbled away in my mouth!

I loved how the tender and flaky pastry of these two-bite mooncakes simply crumbled away in my mouth! Smooth with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, the smooth, sweet lotus paste was nicely complemented by the savory cheese flavor incorporated into the buttery crust as well as the salted egg yolk embedded in the filling. Just like Home's Favourite's durian mooncakes, these were something I knew I had to get when I first tasted them at the Takashimaya Mooncake Fair.
As with other mooncakes with flaky crusts, these Mini Cheese Mooncakes should be best consumed within a few days to guarantee freshness. But don't worry, they're still scrumptious even if you keep them for longer than that!
