Maxims Lava Custard

Apart from the old-school mooncakes, the brand is also well known for its Lava Mooncakes that use a special baking technique to ensure that their mooncake’s crusts remain light and airy while the lava flavours embedded inside retain their flavour.

The newest addition to this line of mooncakes is the Lava Custard Mooncake! The mini mooncakes uses a golden egg yolk creamy custard paste that is infused in the middle of a lush, milky crust for an intense flavour bomb when the mooncake is bitten into and the luscious custard paste flows out. The Lava Egg Yolk with White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake is a modern remake of the traditional mooncake that replaces the salted egg yolk with a molten custard that pays respect to the original flavours while appealing to younger customers. Other notable flavours include the Lava Cheese Mooncake, Lava Chocolate Mooncake and Lava Caramel Macchiato Mooncake.

Kams Roast

Kam’s Roast

Executive Chef Wong Kwan Sang, who hails from Hong Kong’s one-Michelin-starred Kam’s Roast Goose, is introducing three new delectable Hong Kong-style mooncakes combining classic century-old flavours and top-notch ingredients. Kam’s Roast is also bringing back two of their 2019 offerings along with the three new flavours for this year.

Introduced last year is the Kam’s Roast Red Bean Orange Peel Mooncake filled with silky-smooth top-quality red bean paste, which is generously flecked with 23-year aged premium orange peels and their signature Kam’s Roast Assorted Nuts with Roast Duck Mooncake filled with specially selected assorted nuts, including walnut, sesame seeds, almond, melon seeds and olive seeds, for health conscious consumers, these doesn’t contain artificial flavouring, colouring and preservatives free.

5 Nuts Roast Duck

The newest addition to their line of mooncakes is the Almond Egg Custard Mooncake, the mooncake is filled with lusciously creamy almond paste made from premium hand-ground almonds and golden egg custard. It is then encased in a lightly baked crisp crust that is made with reduced portions of sugar and oil. The Coconut Egg Yolk Mooncake has a savoury punch of premium salted duck egg yolk, tempered by the fragrant sweetness of the fresh coconut. We find this combination unique and quite interesting. The last of the three new flavour being introduced this year is the Red Dates Longan Mooncake a nutritious mooncake that can enhance your overall health. Chinese red dates are known to improve liver and digestive functions, strengthen qi, and help with blood deficiency while Longan is considered a type of warm food in traditional Chinese medicine which benefits both the heart and kidney. Adults and Elderlies will surely love this classic flavour which is given a modern makeover.

Kam’s Roast mooncakes is priced at S$68+ for 6 pieces in a box / S$10.80+ per piece, and comes in elegantly packed in a gift box, with Chinese imperial colours of red, gold and purple — these colours symbolise prosperity and luck. Inside the gift box is also a unique repurposed porcelain coaster.
