5 Tips to Eat Egg Custard & Lava Mooncakes


We talked about the latest trend of mooncakes and introduced Egg Custard Mooncake and Lava Mooncake. We would like to explain the best way to enjoy these popular types of mooncakes.


According to Chef Yip Wing Wah, inventor of Egg Custard Mooncake, all mooncakes are good to eat at room temperature. Eaters can try to reheat Egg Custard Mooncake and Lava Mooncakes to bring out more aroma.

Here are the tips of eating his mooncakes:

To reheat

1. By Oven

Preheat oven at 150 degrees Celsius (300 degrees Fahrenheit) and reheat the mooncakes for 5 minutes.

2. Non-stick Pan

Preheat the pan at high heat for 1 minute, place the mooncake on the pan and switch to mid-heat, do not move the cake much and reheat it for 5 minutes. The mooncake should be warm and the bottom will be crispy.

3. Do not reheat traditional flavour of mooncakes such as lotus seed paste. NEVER reheat mooncakes with microwave. It will dry up the lava.

To cut

4. Do NOT Cut the Lava Mooncake with a serrated knife. Always use a smooth knife.

To pair

5. Traditionally Pu-Erh tea is used to pair with lotus seed paste mooncakes. Actually Chef Yip has tried to pair mooncake with different types of tea and he thinks they are all good. Also, Chef Yip's favourite choice is Champagne!

“Your favourite way of pairing is the best way.” Chef Yip said.
