Shang3 Yue4 (Bing3) Or Appreciating the Moon(cake)

HM surprised me with a box of mooncakes from Home's Favourite. We had been wanting to try their mooncakes ever since we walked past their Joo Chiat Road shop a month ago. The fragrance of the durian was mouthwatering. Chancing on their stall at Bugis Junction's mooncake stall, HM wasted no time in grabbing a box of their best. Now, these weren't ordinary durian mooncakes....

lookit these!

a peek inside

Coated with a special ingredient that rendered the mooncake skin black, the taste was more complex than usual. The mystery ingredient which tastes slightly bitter offset the richness of the durian and therefore heightened the durian-ness of it at the same time. Excellent stuff! Well done, HM! *clap clap clap*

To find out what the secret ingredient is, google "Home's Favourite Black Durian Mooncake". There are two versions of this - the ones we bought were the less fancy ones, without the truffles etc.
