If you remember, I had introduced on my blog about this traditional biscuit shop in Ipoh and their delicious yet unique baked biscuits a while back.
Guan Heong’s range of biscuits are still handmade til today and they make their own pastry, paste, BBQ meat and well, just about almost everything. 🙂
During the mooncake season (like now), their range of special mooncakes will be available for a limited period and orders are expectedly overwhelming.
Based on their mooncake list I was most tempted by the durian and savoury mooncakes!
Fruit base paste, traditional nuts and lentils paste are quite usual these days. But I bet having actual meat in the mooncakes aren’t as common.
I love my bak kua (chinese BBQ meat jerky) and thus this mooncake from Guan Heong is easily one of my top picks this year.
The lotus paste is generously studded with big squares of Guan Heong’s in-house BBQ meat and though I didn’t fancy the lotus paste because it was slightly greasy and sweet for me, the overall combination of sweet and meaty works really well!
I’m of opinion that nothing beats pure durian pulp in mooncakes (or any pastries/baked items) but this mildly sweet, sticky durian paste in crumbly, buttery crust makes perfect pairing.
It isn’t fanciful but bite after bite reminded me of the nostalgic pastries that my grandparents used to eat, the type with simple butter crust and sweet paste.
I had instant flashbacks of the long plastic-packaged “durian kuih” (that’s what we used to call it back then) that was homemade and commonly sold back in Penang.
And oh, the generous sprinkling of melon seeds within the paste added a nice crunch. 🙂
