Mooncake fillings have gone way beyond the traditional lotus paste fillings. It is as if every mooncake shop is trying to innovate over the rest. And talk about durian mooncakes, the first place to come to mind is Goodwood Park Hotel. (Read Goodwood Park Hotel’s Durians)
This year they have launched Mao Shan Wang durian mooncakes ($38 for two pieces, $68 for four pieces) which will delight every durian fan. The snowskin is in a pretty olive green representing the durian husk, also reminding me of huge jade blocks. Don’t you think so?
The Mao Shan Wang, literally translates to ‘cat mountain king’, is the king of all durian varies, the highest quality of species with firm yet creamy flesh, bitter meets sweet taste.
Warning: If you have cut your Mao Shan Wang durian, finish it within a day or it will stink up your entire fridge. I left an uncut box in my office for a while, and within minutes, everybody was asking “Where’s the durian?!”
The Mao Shan Wang Mooncake is sure to stink your breath. And strangely, people like that idea!
