The exquisite mooncake delicacies carefully crafted by dim sum chef Lo Tion Sion features old time favourites and new flavours handmade individually, to ensure good quality and taste are packed within each piece. The classic baked mooncakes are priced from RM28nett per piece, starting with white lotus paste with almond nuts and single salted egg yolk (单黃榄仁白莲蓉月饼) representing the bright full moon during the festival; best-seller of white lotus paste with double salted egg yolks and almond nuts (双黃榄仁白莲蓉月饼); and pure white lotus paste with almond nuts (榄仁白莲蓉月饼). Chef’s recommendation this festive is a new flavour with bamboo charcoal skin – a fascinating new addition to the baked skin series combining the fragrance of assorted nut (竹炭五仁月饼) in a distinctive charcoal crust. Another addition to this year’s baked skin series, the scarlet snow skin, includes the refined flavours of sweet snow skin infused with pandan and salted egg bean paste blend (雪桃红翡翠咸豆蓉月饼), promising a classic baked skin experience unlike any other.

The vibrant baked mooncake series is complemented with the endearing delights of mini snow skin mooncakes, priced from RM20nett per piece. The snow skin stars this year is a rich blend of mini “red prawn” durian moon cake with egg cream (迷妳冰皮紅蝦榴莲奶油月饼); mini tiramisu paste with assorted honey nuts (迷妳冰皮提垃米苏蜜糖果仁干月饼); and mini chestnut paste with diced hawthorn and pineapple paste (迷妳冰皮律子山楂鳳梨月饼), a petite beauty created with sprays of red hawthorn, making it a lovely, rosy treat perfect for picture opportunities. Absolutely irresistible, the mini peanut butter snow skin, instilled with Japanese purple potato paste and yam omachi (迷妳花生冰皮日本紫薯芋茸麻糍月饼), is a great blend of Chinese and Japanese, with a surprise of omachi in the heart of the mooncake. The variant of mini snow skin will enthral guests with other choices of mini snow skin with pandan coconut paste in single yolk (迷妳冰皮翡翠椰茸单黄月饼); and mini yam and white skin with pumpkin and green tea paste (迷妳鸳鸯冰皮绿茶金瓜泥月饼).

I was truly excited as I got myself seated properly and get myself to try out the assortment of mooncakes here at Tao. Basically I had a piece of each flavour plated nicely for me to try out. I know it was difficult to pick the best of all as every mooncake was astonishing and unbelievable delicious. I find their new scarlet snow skin, includes the refined flavours of sweet snow skin infused with pandan and salted egg bean paste blend was very uniquely delicious. I like how the skin was developed and crafted as it had the similar touch of Macau’s almond biscuit structure. I was hooked though and I like it. The mini chestnut paste with diced hawthorn and pineapple paste was a blast, something very addictive and had a great subtle sweetness. Lastly the mini “red prawn” durian moon cake with egg cream was such a blast and a durian like me can’t resist of not having a few more slices. Overall the mooncakes crafted at TAO are truly gorgeous and must have. I am definitely satisfied.
