rec for moon cakes?
Does anyone have a recommendation for a Chinatown bakery with really good moon cakes?
I dont think you can go wrong with the bakery on the end of beach street near the arched gate. I forget the name, but its been there the longest and i always find everything there to be the best. I have not been to all the bakeries but have been to 3-4 others, i always end up back at that one. Its on the very end of the street across from Imperial Seafood and next to the small park area
I don't think there are any really good moon cakes made locally...the best are made in HK, so you're better off stopping at a 88 or Ming's and getting a box there. The NYC ones are also ok.
Thanks all. I know Hing Shing bakery, near the gate. They have terrific egg custard tarts.
I've had the boxed moon cakes before but thought freshly made ones would be better. Perhaps I'll do some taste comparisons between the two this year.
This weekend I had a black bean moon cake at Ho Yuen Bakery. My wife and I thought that it was delicious. Since it was the only moon cake I have had in 30 years, I may not be the best judge of the relative quality. It was beautiful, too. For about 30 seconds, I contemplated whether it was tto pretty to bite into.
