The Travelling Gourmet TM’s BEST Mooncake Presentation and Packaging AWARD goes to Hai Tien Lo of the Pan Pacific Singapore! You are Number ONE!


The Travelling Gourmet TM ย was also especially PLEASED with the taste, texture and flavours of the Cempedak Snowskin Mooncake. A veritable Meisterstueck (translated from German – masterpiece in English). Beautiful explosion of honeyed flavours on your eager tastebuds…of this flavoursome cousin of the humble jungle jackfruit aka nangka!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Common name : Moraceae, Chempedak, Artocarpus champeden, jack tree
Ethnic names : Bankong (Malay), Champada (Thai), Mit to nu (Vietnam)
Scientific Name : Artocarpus integer
Appearance : Cempedak is a sausage-shaped exotic jungle fruit, smaller in size when compared to that of a Nangka or Jackfruit. It has a foliage green color and turns ever so slightly yellowish as it is ripening. Each sticky gooey fruit contains a bright yellow pulp covering the large brown seeds. The surface of the Cempedak flesh is velvety soft, beautifully sweet with a sticky mouthfeel and pleasing powerful aroma to the connoisseurs. Poepl of poor taste or worse…NO taste do not like it. For example, there are those who hate durian and foie gras and even Oscietra Caviar from Azerbaijan. WEll, then go eat Chapati and Curry from the hawker center! ๐Ÿ™‚

Keep calm and carry on eating!!!!
