Ever the innovators, Butterknife Folk was offering four different mooncake and tea gelato flavours for Mid Autumn Festival. We headed down on Mooncake Festival and two days after, and this was what we had the second time.

Honey Orchid Dancong (left):
A collaboration with Pekoe Imp, this tea gelato flavour is incredibly aromatic. The roasted oolong flavour comes out very nicely and it’s not too sweet at all. It’s not as decadent as the other flavours, and is not only a great tea pairing to go with the mooncake flavours, but versatile enough to pair with almost any flavour offered.

Kaya Toast (middle):
A local favourite made into gelato form and Butterknife Folk have indeed done a masterful job. There’s generous green swirls of Kaya in the gelato, as well as crispy pieces of toast that are almost crouton-like. I really really love this flavour, as well as the texture contrast in the creamy gelato and crunchy toast bits. You have to try this one to appreciate how good it is!

Teochew Flaky Yam Mooncake (right):
A festive offering that comes only once a year - this flavour is sure to satisfy those who love this pastry, and those who love yam. The taste of yam isn’t overpowering, but it’s just strong enough to make itself known. The flaky pastry isn’t quite so flaky anymore, but still provides a light crispy texture when bitten into. If you like yam but didn’t quite like the Orh Nee flavour on rotation here a while back because of the shallot oil aroma, be glad to know that you won’t get any of that here at all. However, you’ll probably have to wait till next year to get your hands on it when mooncake festival comes round.
