|A Mid-Autumn Festival Dinner|
As I checked each counter, I was surprised to see varied mooncake fillings: custard, durian and green tea. I had never seen nor heard of such fillings in China. What I would usually eat was mooncake with red bean, lotus or mixed five nuts fillings during Mid-Autumn Festival ( also called Mooncake Festival).
At Conrad, a box of 4 costs 390 Thai Baht. I only bought 2 pieces. I'm used to getting them for free (when I was in China) so 99 Thai baht a piece is way too expensive for me. I bought them anyway as I wanted to eat them badly.
How adorable are these pig shaped mooncakes!
The Peninsula is selling a box of 8 mooncakes for 560 Baht.
These colorful mooncakes were available in different flavors: mango, coconut, black forest to name a few.
Here was my last Mid-Autumn dinner in China. The sumptuous meal given to foreigners during mooncake festival is one of the many things I miss the most.How I wish to go back!
