I was browsing through OpenRice website and saw this promotion that Xin Cuisine is offering to OpenRice Members. 30% off for the 1st 100 boxes. Quite a good deal so decided to order from them.

Process of ordering was quite manual - to send them an email on your interest to order and they replied with an order form which you need to scan the copy with your order and credit card details. It would have been better if everything can be done online like a shopping cart. Nevertheless, the response was fast. They also allow to collect the moon cake to be collected at several shopping malls where they are having a booth in the various moon cake fair. Since i stayed in Hougang, so I chose to collect it at NEX.

When I first saw the packaging, I was quite amused. It was kind of modern and it was in bright orange. It looks more like a tool box to me rather than a moon cake box. Collection was fast, I got my order within 5 mins after passing my order form to the counter.

The moon cake looked very nice with small bits of gold flakes I believed. But I got disappointed the moment when I tried to take the moon cake out of the box. The skin was kind of sloggy which made it very difficult for me to take out from the box. The custard filling was quite bland for my liking and the skin was kind of " greasy" also. One good thing for sure is that they are not using any preservatives as the mooncake needs to be consumed within 3 days as stated on the box. However, i think they should have make it clear on the order form so that consumers will not be caught off guard if they are using it as a gift to their loved ones.
