The Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching. Each year I’m reminded of the festival when I see mooncakes being sold. While I don’t celebrate the festival I do enjoy the mooncakes which is the traditional food of this festival. Last year I shared mooncake purchases with friends so that we can try out different ‘brands’ and find out which one’s the best. This year’s no different because we forgot which one is the one we liked best last year! So far this year I have tried a Hong Kong brand (not a top brand) and two local bakeries’ mooncakes. Today I bought a box from Casa Victoria, an established Chinese restaurant in Markham, and boy, was I impressed with the packaging! It didn’t come in a standard metal tin like all the others. I’ll tell the pictures speak for themselves.
