Mooncakes commemorating their 110th anniversary16 September, 2010 by Yan
Goodwood Park Hotel Mooncakes has got to be one of those super popular brands that Singaporeans look to time and time again to get their mooncake fix. When it comes to Mooncakes, you can always count on Goodwood Park Hotel to dish out their signature D24 durian mooncake and unique fruity mooncakes without fail every year. To commemorate the hotel’s 110th anniversary this year, they’ve also decided to prepare just one more special Limited Edition mooncake to their arsenal. Pictures below.
Almond Beancurd with Logan in Snowskin Mooncake:
Traditionally a classic dessert served in Chinese restaurants. Incorporating almond beancurd into a mooncake is a clever rendition that will fuel even more specialty mooncakes ideas in the coming years. Visually it’s also very impressive, with the mooncake measuring 12 centimeters across. This giant mooncake is easily one of the biggest snowskin mooncakes to grace our plates.
Wouldn’t it be weird if I say that this mooncakes tastes just like the dessert itself? Well, actually it’s more like a mashed up almond beancurd jelly intermixed with bits of longan.
With it all said, this snowskin mooncake has got to have the shortest shelf life for a mooncake I’ve bought. The recommended is 2 days. Best to eat it soon once bought to avoid any complications or frequent toilet trips.
D24 Durian Mooncake:
Without a doubt, durian mooncakes were made famous by Goodwood Park Hotel. Incidentally they are also the ones responsible for making durian pastries popular on Singapore soil too. As their mainstay mooncake offering, the D24 durian snowskin mooncake is their most recommended item and is often quickly sold out due to high demand.
If you like durians, the D24 Durian Mooncakes are your best bet. Some even prefer it to eating the actual fruits, since you get all the good stuff without all the hassle of peeling.
If there is just one mooncake you want to buy from Goodwood Park Hotel, this is it. It certainly won’t disappoint.
