Dick Lee's mooncakes

Wendy Lai | Aug 26, 2003 12:32 PM

I bought 3 boxes this past weekend (the price drop the more boxes you buy). They are as delicious as I remembered them to be. They only make one kind of mooncakes, two yolks white lotus paste. The filling is sweet but not cloying sweet. The texture of the paste is so fine, yet not gummy or solid like some store bought one can be. The yolks are small and salty, a very good compliment to the sweet paste.
The only complain I have with them is that they seem to fall apart very easily, a problem I don't recall from previous years. The skin of the cakes are so thin, that as soon as you cut into them, they fall off.

I know other hounds like Neopolian Bakery's mooncakes. I plan on trying them this year, and will report back if I like them better.
