We made a trip to Chinatown over the weekend picked up our first Moon Cakes of the season from a local bakery. They had not started to really display them for sale as of yet. But I had early asked when they would be ready.

They were wonderful and so fresh without any trace of oil in the two cakes we tried so far. Make the night before is much better than something the is from two weeks to two months old. We got white lotus with double yolks, black beans with double yolks and the ones with nuts.

Moon festival will be 9/11/2003 this year. So we will most likely have them under then. I have also seen then in the Asian Supermarket from China, San, Los Angeles and local bakeries. The prices range will be ranging from 10 to 25 dollars a box, depending on where and what you buy.

For anyone that wants Golden Gate custard tarts they will reopen on the 22nd of this month so Chow Fun will have his fix on the custard tarts that he is missing.
