MXT's Special Mooncakes

A mooncake is a special kind of pastry filled with red bean or lotus seed paste. It may also contain salted yolk or nuts. This is usually given to family and friends during the Mooncake Festival which is celebrated by the Chinese community around the world during the eight lunar month (in Chinese calendar) which usually falls during September or October.

And because its Mooncake Festival, I'd like to share these yummy mooncake finds from MXT (Maxim's Tea House).


These mooncakes comes in a special tin box and comes in four flavors: monggo, monggo with yolk, lotus, and lotus with yolk. Personally, I love the lotus mooncake, with or without the yolk.

Mooncakes are usually given to maintain harmony and unity among family and friends. Hence, it is nice to give mooncakes.


And thru the years, the tradition of giving mooncake continues but it has also evolved into a gastronomic delight. The flavors also evolved too-- from red bean and lotus paste, MXT now offers ube, chocolate, and egg custard flavor.


The ones on the photo below are mini-mooncakes. I love the ube and the chocolate. So if you're giving me one, you already know what flavors I like *hint* *hint*  :)


The Deluxe Gift Set (4 large mooncakes) costs 490 as well as the Petite (mini-mooncakes, 8 pcs).




You can get these mooncakes from MXT branches around Metro Manila: Onpin, SM Sta Mesa, SM Fairview, SM Sucat, SM North EDSA

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
