Mooncakes From Ming Yue Confectionery

My kids love to eat mooncakes, I guess they take after their father, he could finish one mooncake at one go!  I definitely cannot do that... no way... mooncakes are very sweet.  During my younger days, I love to take mooncakes with egg yolks, single or double as long as they are there...   But now?  I prefer them without the egg yolks... I feel kind of "geli" already when the egg yolk is there... why is it so?  hmmmm.....

For mooncake lovers, there is this shop here which sells freshly baked mooncakes every day... and they are sold out in no time....  When I went there the other day, I was so happy when I saw trays of mooncakes being brought out from the kitchen.... and then the people including me, started to line up..... 
In front of the shop....
the staff were pretty fast in their jobs... 
I didn't have to wait long.. just 5 minutes or so...
maybe I was the first few early birds....hahahaa...
 After I got my mooncakes, the line became longer....
Here is the shop name.... 
It is advisable to call them first to find out more....
The shop is just opposite Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji...
I bought two to try.....
It was still a bit warm when I cut it...
The white lotus paste with lots of "kwa chi"
This is considered one of the cheapest mooncake one can ever find in town....
Only only RM6+
Cheap and Nice! 


  1. *High five*. I never like mooncake with egg yolk. My favourite is "hong chio pia" and sometimes take a piece or two with lotus. Must drink tea to go with it.

  2. wah, fresh from the oven daily, limited availability, "pei bok haam leng" (thin skin rich filling) and only at RM6 each!! still can get RM6 mooncake, i thought now like RM15 a piece, so expensive.. no wonder so many people queuing to buy that.. i actually like plain lotus paste lah, don't like those with egg yolk..

  3. irene: i take 1/8 after dinner.. :)

    sk: RM15 is too expensive.. i dont want la..not necessary to spend so much...

  4. much KUACI!!! I sell red beean punya ka? ahem ahem....ada datang KL or not ;p

  5. ooh, this place! somewhere near the "under the tree yong tau fu" right? We tried Tuck Kee's char siew before, didn't know they do sell mooncakes nearby

  6. Wah, really cheap and nice! I like it with lots of kua chi. So nice freshly baked.

  7. kathy: ahemmm... got..Tuesday.. boleh??

    ken: yes, you are right!! But not everytime got mooncakes one...

    mun: yes, fresh from oven... :)

  8. These look so good, Claire! BUT I have learned something here today from my wallop friend. I always thought that Moon Pies are only eaten on Chinese New Year!

  9. at RM6 apiece here, imagine how much profit the big manufacturers & their middle men are making with their branded mooncakes.

  10. Sooooooo cheap!!! Looks good. You still have my mailing address? Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

  11. ginny: your wallop friend? hahaha.. i love that!

    doc: once a year affair.. hmmmm...

    stp: email address? *wink wink*... hahahaa...

  12. I love the ones with lots of kua chee.

  13. Bananaz shall be going nuts again..B, L & D whacking those nutty ones. Whack first and worry about uric acid later. See what a 'wai sik kung chew' haha.

  14. You eat them immediately? My sister-in-law used to buy from her friend home baked ones and was told to eat them after three days. Did not ask her why as those days not that KPC. Guess need time for the flavor to give the kick I think haha.

  15. Actually the cost is cheap just that the advertisement and branding jack up the prices.

  16. wenn: me too.. now avoiding egg yolks.. :)

    bananaz: who are B, L and D? :)
    Yes, actually not so expensive one.. why they want to jack up? maybe bec of the boxes la... nowadays the packing very canggih one!

  17. Wow! Every one is crazy about mooncakes over there. Must be really good.

    I like the traditional flavour without yolk: pure lotus, white lotus. But this year I tried something different. Shanghai pure lotus mooncake. Very nice!!

    and also tiramisu mooncake; but being a non-coffee lover, it is not my kind of mooncake. :p

  18. waaaa...rm6 so cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. rose: i tried the BBQ meat mooncake.. sweet and savoury.. hahaa..

    angel bear: cheapskate me... hahaa..

  20. I also love mooncake and could eat 1 whole biji at one go. Maximum 3 biji a day! Muahahahaha

    The last photo is nice with generous almond flakes!!!!!!!

  21. sharon: if durians, then best! hahaa..

  22. wish you can buy on behalf of me if you drop by kl. am avid reader of your blog and kathy's. which type of biscuits are their speciality?

  23. Should ask the shopkeepers to sell to SARAWAK. Damn cheap and saliva!

  24. milly: Their famous is the Far Sun Tong..RM11 for half kilo.. and so far, that is the best I have ever tasted... :) Thanks for coming by my blog!

    anonymous: perhaps you can call them up.. :)


Thank you, readers!
