Xian Crystal Mooncake

Jump to last reply

We're back already about a month from our China trip which supposedly we took so we can cross the country out of our bucket list. We did not expect to love the trip... yes, smog was everywhere so as spitting, hacking and the most unsanitary conditions we have seen and experienced. But, China is full of amazing history , sites and contrasts. You could be in ancient site one minute and not too far will be the most modern building. The only things constant are constructions and changes. And the food, wow! We must have tried at least 6 different cuisines with Xian foods, being our favorite. The Muslim quarter of Xian is truly a food mecca with explosion of unique flavors. And I am obsessed with the Xian crystal mooncake... I thought it could very well be compared to the best Parisian pastry! It's made of a very flaky pastry with various fillings like crushed walnut, yellow bean paste, sesame seed paste and essence of rose. Does anyone know if and where I can get this in NYC?
