27.08.2008 | 摩登月餅

一年一度中秋節就快又到喇, 個幾月前時候市面上開始銷售月餅, 每年呢個時候都係各商家絞盡腦汁推出創新月餅嘅時候.. 傳統蓮蓉豆沙暫且擺埋一二角唔講喇, 啲咩水果/綠茶/咖啡/朱古力月餅都已經唔再新奇喇.. 而家係開始打鹹味月餅市場嘅主意囉, 見到廣告一大堆鹹味月餅, 由左至右:蝦米鹹蓉月, 娘惹布丁咖哩月餅, 沙茶海味.. 你見到會唔會先打個冷震?? 其實仲有好多口味架, 上網搵唔到相, 譬如人參雞絲月餅, 韓國泡菜月餅(!!), 我覺得好怪好格硬囉.. 做乜要咁啫?? 好地地一個純白蓮蓉唔好咩??
the mooncake festival is just around the corner, more than a month ago you can start buying mooncakes almost everywhere, and this is the time where bakeries and restaurants will scratch their heads for innovative mooncakes.. put aside the traditional lotus seed paste, the later innovations like fruits, green tea, coffee, chocolate mooncakes are now not surprising at all.. what i noticed is the trend for savory mooncakes now, from left to right: salted lotus with dried shrimp sambal, nyonya pudding curry, sa char sauce seafood white lotus.. err, pretty scary right?? actually there are more such innovations but just could find pictures from web, for example: ginseng chicken, kimchi mooncake (!!), can you believe how weird they would taste?? i just gotta ask why, what's wrong with the simple plain lotus seed paste mooncake??

各種不同創新口味其實都會有日玩厭, 由甜味到鹹味到不倫不類, 下一步係咩?? 咪就係玩月餅造型囉!! 今年若論最創新月餅, 我諗非呢個香港住好啲x奇華餅家嘅「八月十五」系列月餅莫屬喇啩?? 暫且唔理佢味道如何, 就係見佢個屁股樣就覺得超搞笑啦~~
well, there will still be a day that the different tastes of mooncakes shall get boring, from sweet to savory to "undefined" perhaps (hehe), what's next?? innovative shapes of the mooncakes that is!! to rate the most innovative mooncake this year, i should say the "Full Moon" series from the crossover of HK's G.O.D and Kei Wa.. just put aside how it taste, the butt shaped mooncake is already worth an applause, don't you think so?? [Note to English reader] if you can't understand the link between mooncake and butt.. mooncake festival falls on the 15th of the eight month in the lunar calendar, and the cantonese has a slang for butt as "august 15" (because it's as round as the moon on that day).. that is why they are linked together..

  11. 好恶心的屁股月饼。怎么可能要得下去,是设计给有特殊癖好的朋友的吧!!?

    就算好吃也不一定会好卖,送礼就不行啦!

  12. 哈哈, 我覺得還可以喇, 就是貪他的賣相夠搞笑啊.. 不過送禮給長輩的話就最好不要選他囉~~
