Mid Autumn Festival is coming soon and you start to see people posting photos and website showing mooncakes from various brands. Interesting packagings from hotels and restaurants are promoting on their mooncakes. Thanks to Openrice and Xin Cuisine, Holiday Inn Atrium for the invite last week. I got to have a different experience of mooncake with wine pairing.

We were introduced to the traditional mooncakes and snowskin mooncake.

The traditional mooncakes come in 3 different flavors (Normal lotus paste with egg yolk , X.O sauce with assorted nuts Mooncake & Xin’s Mini Special Egg Custard with egg yolk)

X.O Sauce with assorted nuts mooncake (S$56) . A medley of luxurious nuts surround Xin’s special homemade X.O sauce delivering a multitude of sensations to the palate. It is quite different from the traditional ones and it tends to taste sweet and the assorted nuts crunchy that blends into the paste.

Xin’s Mini Special Egg Custard with egg yolk Mooncake (S$52) which celebrates its Silver Jubilee this year as a perennial favourite handcrafted by Chef Cheung Kin Nam. The best seller and award winning mooncake has been a gem to the taste buds of many, embellished by its rich, smooth and endless elegance of enchanting creamy custard and a lightly bake outer crust. True enough the taste is quite unique and it has the smooth finishes with not too sweet taste. It blends well with the wine wine pairing. Surprisingly not too heavy or overwhelming!

Green Tea Lotus Paste with Chivas Chocolate Snowskin Mooncake (S$50) with rich whisky ganache complementing the smooth texture of the green tea lotus paste. Something different with good combination of taste. Green tea lotus is not too sweet and it compliments well with the chivas chocolate. The taste of the chivas chocolate is outshining from the combination.

Black Sesame Paste with Peanut and Chocolate Snowskin Mooncake (S$50). The range of flavor will delight those who love a robust taste and a hit with those who enjoy Reese Peanut Butter cups. Something different for those who loves to explore new taste.

Next we have the lastest creation by Chef Cheung, The Passion Fruit Paste Snowskin Mooncake (S$50). The tangy and refreshing taste is wonderfully complemented with fresh mango. I can taste the mango taste immediately when I put it into my mouth.

They also offer Xin’s Mini Snowskin Peranakan Mooncake with Durian Paste (S$50) which was presented with a purplish blue gem naturally flavoured with the Blue Pea flower which has a fragrant and luxurious durian filling. Thumbs up for this!I can taste the pure durian taste in it. It would be best to eat it after a while. Defrost the mooncake and you can taste the sinful durian paste!

There are more flavors available in Xin Cuisine. The visually appealing Sourrsop and Chocolate Crunch snowskin Mooncake (S$50) and Champagne Chocolate and Pandan Lotus Paste Snowskin Mooncake (S$50). Teochew Yam Paste with Single Egg Yolk (S$52) is also available as well.

Not to mention that the packaging has very loud and vibrant colour design. This definitely a plus point to attract the public to purchase the mooncake. It can be re-used as fashion too!

Red and white wines are served to match with the different types of mooncakes too. Something different to pair with and definitely could be a new trend to try out! Perfect evening to ended with nice foods & drinks and great people!
