Instead of magnets, key chains and t-shirts, we decided to give gifts of food instead. At Kee Wah bakery, we were treated to dozens of goodies perfect for giving. Of course we tasted them as well and loved the crispy egg rolls that come in several flavors: coconut, butter, seaweed and sesame seed. It comes in tins in varying sizes and is quite affordable. Love it

So many baked goods to choose from, what do we get?

We tried the walnut cookie and it was just ok.

We tried the rice crispies and it wasn't sweet enough, tho the texture was on point.

We tried the wife cake and it was just ok.

Mid-Autumn Festival season is approaching and this means mooncake season is upon us in HK.

There are many places to buy mooncakes but my personal favourite is Kee Wah, a traditional bakery business that originated in HK in 1938. The have branches throughout HK as well as units in Taiwan, China and California (USA) so you might have run across their products before.

You can buy mooncakes individually or in sets of 4+ sold in decorative tin boxes. The tin boxes make for popular gifts for family, friends and work colleagues so you will often encounter long queues for mooncake tins as the holiday week approaches. The good news is that more and more, mooncakes are being sold quite early before the holiday these days. You will start finding them on the shelves by early August and be able to purchase through Mid-Autumn Festival until they run out of stock.

Traditional mooncakes will be made of lotus seed paste and include a single or double yolk. If you want to try something different, Kee Wah sells red bean paste, date paste with pine nuts and other varieties. My personal favourite is the Desiccated Coconut w/ lotus seed. These are delicious eaten as is or heat them up in a microwave for a few seconds. Alas, this variety of mooncake goes well with bold black coffee.

Note: There are Kee Wah branches throughout the city. If you want to locate one near your hotel. Check their website or ask your hotel front desk. They should be able to point you in the right direction.

I have been into a few of these chain of bakeries and you will see plenty wherever you go by their bright red sign. I have tried their sweet buns, sponge cakes, biscuits and savouries and they are all good quality and really cheap. as are their drinks. I had a tuna pastry, piece of cake and cold drink for HKD 21 - a real bargain!
