One of my readers has informed me that durian mooncake exists.
It can be found in Singapore. I knew when I wrote that piece the use of durian was likely as a filling, but like mooncakes, some love durian and some don't.
I don't. I'd consider a thin slice of one made with red bean paste as long as it had no salty egg yolk in the center. I'm fond of red bean foods, such as huhng dau baau (red bean bun) and lihnji huhng dau sa (lotus seed in red bean soup).
Even the traditional lotus seed paste can be tasty. I like it in sauh baau (longevity buns).
Though not a huge fan of mooncakes, I won't rule out other Chinese treats.
If you'll excuse me, I'm off to find a bowl of haak loh maih.
