New World Mooncakes

I'm a traditionalist when it come to mooncake. I just can't tolerate those weird combinations and flavours. Well except for a certain flavours and that also if they come in bing pei (snow skin) version.

I'm a purist and will stick to the traditional ones like lotus paste with yolks, red bean, white lotus paste etc. However, there is one mooncake, the baked type, that I'm bowled over with and I have to say it's a favourite with almost every bittersweet chocolate lovers, and it is this...

Fook Pan Choc Mooncake

This Chocolate Mooncake is from Fook Pan which is originally a cooking school located along Jalan Ipoh. It was aeons ago my aunt bought a box of these for my brothers and I. I must have been a teenager then but I remember every word she told me. Fook Pan was the first who came out with a chocolate version and that year was their first and needless to say, we loved them.

I got reacquainted to it a couple of days back when a friend gave me one to try. I was delighted of course as getting them is quite a task. Fook Pan's mooncakes are not available at any stores, stalls nor kiosk except their place in Jalan Ipoh. So you'll need to call them and place your order before running over there to pick them out.

After one bite, the memories and pleasures flooded back. The ebony skin is thin and tasted chocolaty. The filling of lotus paste mixed with bittersweet chocolate can be tasted distinctly. Best of all, these mooncakes are not sickly sweet. I shared some with my colleagues and one of the guy said this would be the best alternative to chocolates to win over girls' hearts during this festive season. He had it spot on!!!

I'm a traditionalist too. Tried a "tiramisu" mooncake at Jusco in Wan Utama. It was so wrong.

That being said, I would give this bittersweet chocolate mooncake a try.
