CNY tummy treats: Yuen Fatt Mooncakes Preorder opened!(:

Hello all (:

CNY is coming in another month or so and are you fretting on what to gift or what to treat your guests for the festive season?

If you fancy something different from the mass markets, and you are a fan of butter and less sweet delicacies, we have the perfect tummy treat to recommend.

Does this look familiar? We had the previous preorder for these yummy mooncakes here and we know you love them! Due to overwhelming requests to have them back again for CNY, we are now opening slots for the preorder of these mooncakes.

Some feedbacks from our customers as below(:

These shanghainese mooncakes are lovingly made by a family-run bakery, Yuen Fatt Biskuit, using top quality butter  and we love it's crumbly & melt-in-your-mouth texture.

It was a tough fight last year trying to get our orders in for the Mid autumn as the orders were submitted too late. During the festive season, the bakery has 30k orders which works out to about 100k mooncakes to bake considering they still have to bake for open door sales where the queue easily stretches to 4 store lengths even before they are open for busines.

Above is a box of mixed flavours with yolk.

From left to right, the flavours are:

Red bean, Pandan and lotus
