Mooncake is a delicious snack with fresh Iron Goddess Tea! I'm a sucker for red bean and lotus filling. Yum!

Oh, so very good... the Kee Wah Mooncakes!
Alright, dieting is certainly off the chart this month and with the coming of the Mid-Autumn Festival (or popularly called Mooncake Festival), it's time to shop for mooncakes for friends, families and clients. And for me, that only mean one choice, the Kee Wah Mooncakes from Hong Kong.      So, you may think, well, I'm American, what has that got to do with me? A Chinese festival?   Good news, you can now enjoy Kee Wah Mooncakes in the U.S. too!   …

About this food


Sweet Chinese pastries given as gifts to friends & families during or before the Mid-Autumn Festival (Chinese Calendar mid of 8th lunar month) & eaten with loved ones over a cup of Chinese tea in celebration of the Mooncake Festival (as popularly called). 

Typical mooncakes are round or rectangular in shape, measuring about 10 cm in diameter and 4-5 cm thick. The filling is usually made from lotus seed paste & is surrounded by a relatively thin crust and may contain salted egg yolks. Mooncakes are rich & heavy when compared with most Western cakes and pastries.
