Was invited to the moon cakes food tasting by OpenRice at Xin Cuisine, Holiday Inn Atrium. A great hospitality to the guests from Holiday Inn as not only they provided the star of the night - moon cakes for the guests to try, there's also some really good bite size food available.
Tried their signature roast duck, scallops, chicken roll and roasted pork. My favorite is definitely the roast duck as the meat is roast perfectly and the meat is so tender and soft. High possibility that I will be back for the sake of this roast duck dish. The roasted pork belly is done nicely too. Though I am not a fan of that but still, I think it is one of the best I had tried.
One of the highlights of this food tasting is definitely the wines! We got the privileged to sample some really good red and white wine together with the moon cakes. I would say that my favorite is the Riondo Prosecco with its fruity and bubbly texture, pairing it nicely together with either the snow skin moon cakes or traditional moon cakes.
The boxes are so attractive!
Durian snow skin
Honestly this is the first time I tried the moon cakes from Xin Cuisine and it was good! Even better than the one I used to get from some other hotel. I love their custard egg yolk traditional moon cake. It is sweet and not too thick thus you don't feel very jelat after that. As for the snow skin moon cake, my favorite are the black sesame paste with peanut and chocolate and also the peranakan durian.
Overall a enjoyable night with good desserts and wine and company!
