The annual Mooncake Festival 中秋节 is around the corner (on 27 Sep 2015). In Kluang, Johor there are four well known traditional Chinese bakeries. Many people find going to Kluang just for mooncakes doesn't sound practical but I found it quite fun and interesting to combine it with a food trail in small town Malaysia.

First stop was Yuen Fatt for their signature mouse? rugby ball? torpedo? cigar? shaped "Shanghai" style mooncakes. It's the usual lotus seed paste, red bean paste, etc fillings wrapped in a baked buttery crumbly crust.

Next was Yu Kong - the mooncakes have the same fillings as Yuen Fatt and the baked buttery crumbly crust is similar too. But, Yu Kong's mooncakes are round like baseballs instead of looking like rugby balls.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
