1. Mochi mooncake
Demonstrating culinary innovation, the restaurant has put a Japanese twist to the Chinese delicacy with its new mochi mooncakes this year. Not only are they pretty to look at, but the soft and chewy mochi mooncakes also make for a delicious, intriguing and modern rendition of the beloved snowskin classics. Moulded after the sacred seven-petal flower, Petals Mochi Snowskin Mooncake ($58 for a box of eight) feature a brown sugar mochi filled with velvety red bean and yam paste; and with peanut and aromatic black sesame paste, while the Sweet Hearts Mochi Snowskin Mooncake($58 for a box of eight) encases mung bean paste in a heart-shaped mochi exterior. The latter comes in lychee, cranberry, grape and mango variations and are covered with coconut sprinkles.
