It's the season for Moon Cake now.
The Lotus seed Moon Cake from Fortune Stars bakery is the best Moon Cake i've ever tried in china town in NYC.They make other typical Moon Cake like Red been Moon Cake w/wo salted egg york.But the simple Lotus seed one stands out.The white lotus seed paste is very dense and heavy weight,yet rich and creamy. The sweetness is just right.
They make the Moon Cake year around, but these are the special Moon Cake that are available only in this month.The price is $2.75.
They also make really good the steamed red bean bun that has very tasty red bean paste which is mixed with sesame oil.$0.50
