Peony Jade Teochew Yam Paste Mooncakes‏

Apart from the traditional and snowskin mooncakes, flaky crusts, an indicative of Suzhou-style mooncakes, is another type of mooncakes. Its dough is made by rolling together alternating layers of oily dough and flour that has been stir-fried in oil. The most common filling for these Teochew crusty mooncakes is a sweet paste made from taro ("Oor Nee" or Yam).

Peony-Jade Signature Flavour

Ever since its establishment in 2004, "Oor Nee" fans will know about Peony-Jade's signature Flaky Teochew "Oor Nee" mooncake. Apparently, these original ex-Crown Prince Hotel's creamy yam paste filo pastry has been highly sought-after.

This Teochew yam mooncake tastes closer to a taro turnover or pastry rather than your conventional mooncake. I think this should appeal to the older generation as it is not too sweet and softer than the usual lotus paste. The down side is the flaky pastry, it can get a little messy when you eat and when left a few days, it becomes soft and a little oily.

Lol... No offence in tat but we thought this is a classic ex-Crown Prince Hotel speciality who has a pool of fans before the chefs shifted to Peony Jade...

Btw, we realize this mooncakes can't keep for long, it became extremely oily after a day or so...
