To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, Yauatcha Houston will be featuring a signature Mooncake dessert throughout the month of July. The Egg Custard Mooncake contains a Cantonese-style custard baked in golden pastry. Come enjoy under the starry ceiling of The Teahouse room inside Yauatcha.
Brief History of the Mooncake:
Traditionally eaten during the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, Mooncakes are round pastries with fillings that vary regionally. Savory or sweet, these fillings can range from seaweed and ham to red bean paste, with contemporary versions stuffed with ice cream or caramel. These pastries are offered between friends and family during the festival and are an integral part of the celebration.
