Mid-Autumn 2016 at Peach Blossoms, Marina Mandarin - Eight Treasure (8-Yolk) White Lotus Paste Mooncake 3

What I enjoy most about Marina Mandarin Peach Blossomsmid-autumn creations is that they’ve expertly reduced the sugar for each, resulting in more enjoyable treats without having to worry about the extra pounds.

It’s said that their mooncakes contain up to 70 per cent less sugar than those made in previous years.

Highlights this year include their extremely impressive 6.5-inch Eight Treasure Baked Mooncake of smooth white lotus paste and eight yolks ($72.80, 1 pc) that makes for great mooncake party gifts or corporate clients, as well as the new Gold Dust Charcoal Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds ($62.80, 4pcs).

Also good for vegetarians, the Gold Dust Charcoal Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds is filled with a fragrant, thick black sesame paste that’s just sweet enough for my liking.

Or if you prefer something slightly more savoury, go for the mini version, the Mini Gold Dust Charcoal Black Sesame with Yolk and Melon Seeds ($70.80, 8pcs). These babies are about half the size of a normal mooncake, but their yolks pack this indulgent salty touch that gives it that extra depth.

Usual suspects of baked white lotus paste mooncakes with Single Yolk ($62.80, 4pcs), Double Yolk ($65.80, 4pcs) and Macadamia Nuts ($60.80, 4pcs) are also available, or you can go for the Mini Baked White Lotus Paste Mooncake, each with a mini yolk center ($64.80, 8pcs).

Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."
