What we like: Lava Egg Yolk with White Lotus Seed Paste, we can taste the freshly baked mooncake with the lava egg yolk still flowing out. Hong Kong Mei Xin provided some suggestion on how to keep the mooncakes and how to warm it up to best enjoy it. The baked skin is thin, the lotus paste is soft, and the lava egg yolk is addictive. We also like the Funky Local Touch with Cha Chan Tang – Ho Ho Yum snow skin mooncakes. Iced Lemon Tea, Red Bean Ice, Milk Tea with Condensed Milk, and 7-Up with Salted Lemons – these are all iconic flavors that represent the quintessential Hong Kong Old Tea House, truly unique flavors this year.
With its alluring texture and aroma and crafted by the best mooncake craftsmen unique to Hong Kong MX, it is no wonder how the Lava Custard Mooncake was immensely popular and sold out almost immediately last year.
An Elegant & Vibrant Makeover for the Best in Class
Coming in a pearl-colored gift box, Hong Kong MX original Lava Custard Mooncake goes through a unique ‘double-baking’ process – the salted egg yolks are baked in advance and then baked together with the custard.
This process combines the different fragrances and flavors of the egg yolk and the mooncake, allowing customers to enjoy a decadent molten experience without heating up the mooncake.
Nestled in a beautiful amber orange-colored gift box, the Creamy Custard Mooncake makes use of the same technique, giving customers a creamy custard filling mooncake with aromatic crusts. Last but not least, the Lava Egg Yolk with White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake gift box is of a grand rose color. The molten egg yolks of this mooncake slowly ooze out of the white lotus seed paste, which is a rendition of the classic White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks, with no artificial coloring added.
Double the Indulgence with the Hong Kong MX Mooncake Gift Box
The indigo-colored Delicate Trio Mooncake gift box features Creamy Custard Mooncake, Original Lava Custard Mooncake and the Lava Egg Yolk with White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake to satisfy all your cravings. Finally, the Assorted Mooncakes – Delightful Moon will cater to family and friends. This vibrant-looking violet box contains a diverse offering of both Lava and Custard mooncakes and the signature White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks.
The Little Things – Tips on Enjoying the Lava Custard Experience
A few seconds could make a huge difference when savoring the Lava Mooncakes. Just heat them up inside a microwave (1000w) for 3 to 5 seconds, this allows the molten custard or egg yolks to slowly ooze out of the mooncake in the most aromatic way. For a richer flavor of the Creamy Custard Mooncakes, heat them up inside a microwave (1000w) for 5 to 8 seconds, this elevates taste and texture of the mooncake. You may also preserve the Creamy Custard Mooncake and Lava Mooncakes in a fridge. To consume, simply let the mooncake rest at room temperature for 10 minutes, or heat them up inside a microwave (1000w) for 12 to 15 seconds. Likewise, the custard becomes richer and the lava custard or egg yolks will be more molten.
A Makeover for Hong Kong MX Snowy Premium Delicacies
A Funky Local Touch with Cha Chan Tang – Ho Ho Yum
Iced Lemon Tea, Red Bean Ice, Milk Tea with Condensed Milk, and 7-Up with Salted Lemons – these are all iconic flavors that represent the quintessential Hong Kong Old Tea House and they match with the snowy mooncakes perfectly. Inspired by the very tiles from these local establishments, the new Cha Chan Tang- Ho Ho Yum gift box is a piece of memorabilia in itself, each bite surely reminding customers of their favorite local drinks.
