The different flavours of Chinese Mooncakes

Vietnamese Sticky Rice Mooncake

Known as Tết Trung Thu (Mid Autumn Festival) is a special occasion where Vietnamese people celebrate by give mooncakes to friends and family as a symbol of well-wishing. It’s a very old tradition, passed on from generations to generations. I certainly remember eating my fair share of the cakes and hated the Chinese mooncakes with the egg yolk inside but loved the seriously sweet sticky-rice version that the Vietnamese eat. I will be indulging in a Vietnamese mooncake this year; it’ll be LO’s first time trying it. I might have to get a Chinese one as well so he can sample the various flavours. 🙂

If you fancy a taste, pop into your local Chinese/Vietnamese supermarket or cash and carry like See Woo to grab one of these. Be quick though as they are so popular and well-known to sell out very quickly!
