Saveur 100 likes the mooncakes at.......
(drumroll)....... #25, Eastern Bakery!
This is according to a correspondent who gets Saveur. I couldn't find the list itself online, but found out that the Stockton Farmers' Market is on the annual "Saveur 100" list for 2007 as well. What else in NorCal is on the list?
Does anybody agree with Saveur's assessment of Eastern Bakery's mooncakes?
Bay Area items on the Saveur 100 list:
#1 -- Stocton Saturday Farmers Market
#2 -- Thomas Keller
#25 -- Eastern Bakery's mooncakes
#27 -- The St. Anthony Dining Room
#33 -- La Cocina Community Kitchen in SF's Mission District
#76 -- Not quite Bay Area, but Wayne Thiebaud lives in Sacramento
I can't remember now...I did my taste test years ago. I remember Yimster and I had a friendly disagreement every year!
I think it was Great Easter, Napolean, Mee Mee, A something, Golden Gate Bakery.
The strengths of Dick Lee's is their filling. Their skin is not so good. But given there are more filling than skin, I'd much have good filling!
