What’s your mooncake flavor?

Mid-Autumn festival or Tết Trung Thu is happening in a couple of weeks and you cannot ignore the mooncakes being sold left and right. And this year, my first taste of mooncake was The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Black Forest mooncake.

It was so good that I got a whole box for a friend who’s been missing mooncakes a whole lot.

One mooncake costs 150,000 VND each but can gets pricier when packaged this way.
