It’s the season for food, food and more glorious food. With Christmas just over, 2013 just around the corner and the Lunar New Year barely six weeks after, there’s no rest for the glutton in us. That resolution to lose holiday weight will have to wait.
We added more padding to our waistlines as we got to taste three of Feng Shui Inn’s signature pastries, specially made for the Lunar New Year by Chef Li. Between the coarse skin walnut pastry and the pineapple pastry with bird’s nest, we couldn’t decide which we like better. We may just get them all when they go on sale from 11 Jan to 24 Feb 2013 at Feng Shui Inn, Crockfords Tower.
Home-made Pineapple Pastry with Imperial Bird’s Nest
What is it? Mini pineapple pastries baked to perfection, showcasing a nice golden brown skin and a light touch of bird’s nest filling.
Taste test: Everything was just nice – neither too sweet nor too hard and goes down easily. The soft, crumbly pastry skin full of buttery fragrance and the pineapple fillings melted in the mouth. The bird’s nest blended well with the pineapple filling. It would have been better if we could taste more of it, but it did add a nice texture to the overall experience.
Price: 8 pieces for $68. Perfect for business partners, families and close friends.
Home-made Premium Coffee Walnut Pastry
What is it? A walnut pastry made for coffee lovers, shaped to look like a raw walnut
Taste test: Past the rough and decidedly unappealing exterior of the walnut pastry is a gem of a nut waiting to be cracked open (pardon the pun). Each bite fills your mouth with a marriage of sweetness and saltiness, with the walnut bits providing extra crunch. The coffee flavour left a pleasant aftertaste and we were asking for seconds.
Price: 8 pieces for $28. Great for friends and to welcome visitors to your home.
Home-made Premium Cookies
What is it? Festive goodies shaped like gold ingots, with white lotus paste and walnut fillings.
Taste test: Rich white lotus paste and walnuts wrapped in a buttery pastry skin, this pastry tastes like the traditional moon cake. The smaller size makes you want to cram the buttery goodness in your mouth whole and the lotus paste delivers the right level of sweetness. If you’ve never bitten into gold before, now’s your chance.
Price: 8 pieces for $38. Great as gifts for bosses and colleagues.
