Mooncake Season 2019: St. Regis Singapore’s Yan Ting
For this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, Yan Ting at The St. Regis Singapore welcomes an exquisite mooncake collection of traditional baked favourites and mini snow skin treats, handcrafted to perfection by the restaurant’s Dim Sum and Pastry Chef Vanness Chai.
This year’s menu offers time-honoured baked mooncakes appealing to connoisseurs of the traditional craft, while its ensemble of snow skin mooncakes introduces a wealth of flavours including three entirely new and irresistible creations, alongside two highly-coveted flavours –Black Sesame Paste with Salted Peanut Truffle Snow Skin Mooncake and Pure “Mao Shan Wang” Durian Snow Skin Mooncake.
Debuting this year is the Chendol Paste with Melon Seeds. Wrapped in a visually appealing jade-marbled skin, the locally inspired chendol mooncake features a robustly flavoured lotus paste, tasting of aromatic coconut and gula melaka, finished with bits of melon seeds for a final crunch.
Also new to the collection is the Taro Paste with Salted Egg Yolk Truffle and Almond Flakes Snow Skin Mooncake, balancing the sweetness of the taro with the saltiness of the egg yolk, resulting in a delightful marriage of sweet and savoury flavours.
Bubble tea fans will be pleased with the Royal Milk Tea Paste with Oolong Tea Truffle Snowskin Mooncake, a creamy creation combining slightly bitter oolong tea truffle with the milky tea-infused lotus paste.
Returning this year is the crowd-favourite Blakc Sesame Paste with Salted Peanut Truffle Snow Skin Mooncake, featuring a nutritious blend of rich black sesame paste and a luscious peanut truffle in the centre – a fun subversion of familiar local dish tang yuan.
Finally, no collection would be complete without a delectable durian mooncake, and for the St Regis, they’ve prepared their indulgent Mao Shan Wang Durian Snow Skin Mooncake. Filled with a generous dollop of Mao Shan Wang puree, the mooncake is encased in an activated charcoal snow skin accentuated with hints of gold.
Traditional baked mooncakes will also be featured in the collection, with silky smooth white lotus seed paste with premium ingredients, such as salted egg yolks, and fragrant Yunnan ham baked into a golden-hued skin. Yolks within range from single to four indulgent yolks in a single cake, while those looking for a healthier option can opt for a reduced sugar version sans yolk instead.
Of course, all of these come encased in beautiful boxes, this time, housed in a traditional packaging adorned with watercolour peonies and an intricate gold locket. For the more modern customer, a sleek, blue or pink glass box option is also available in the premium gift sets, each accompanied with an elegant teapot set and premium grade Puerh Tea.
