Old Chang Kee Launches UFO-shaped Salted Egg Yam Puff

As a Mid-Autumn Festival season special, Old Chang Kee launches its new Salted Egg Yam’O today. A perfectly round, golden UFO-shaped puff with yam and a salted egg yolk inside, it looks like quite the treat.

Although I’m sure Old Chang Kee put a lot of effort into making sure the taste is optimal, my first impression upon seeing it was, “Oh no, it’s so cute!”

The yam inside the puff is soft and tastes like orh nee, which is a traditional Chinese dessert made of sweetened mashed yam. The salted egg yolk is exactly what you’d expect in a mooncake. Add the flaky, crispy pastry shell that encompasses the best curry puffs and you’ve got the perfect hot snack for a rainy afternoon.

One piece goes for $2.20. If you’re thinking of buying a couple for a friend, as a substitute for mooncakes, you can get a pair in a nice box for $5.80. That’s much cheaper than a couple of mooncakes!

Are mooncakes too sweet for you? These adorable little yam and salted egg puffs are a little more savoury and may just be your thing. They are available at all Old Chang Kee stalls islandwide until 1 October or when stock runs out.
