Even Singapore's favourite salted egg chips brand, IRVINS (@irvinsaltedegg ), has jumped on the bandwagon!
.
Presenting their first-ever Yam Lava Mooncake! At SGD40, you get a total of eight mooncakes in a box wrapped in a beautiful Japanese-style cloth ๐ŸŽ. There are two types of fillings to choose from: yam and mung bean. However, you cannot mix the two flavours within the same box. Fortunately, since I'm a big yam fan, that wasn't a problem for me.
.
To my delight, the yam paste was satisfyingly oozy and sweet โ˜บ. The distinct earthy flavours were very prominent too. As for the lava salted egg yolk ๐Ÿณ, while it wasn't as oozy or as much in amount, I felt the balance it provided was just right. Its savouriness managed to complement the overall sweetness of the yam.
.
The mooncake skin itself was made out of activated charcoal ๐Ÿ–ค, which gave it its shiny black hue. For one, though, I felt that it was tad bit too thick. Spent quite a while chewing on the skin, as a result. Nevertheless, I think this combination of yam and salted egg yolk is one that is done right ๐Ÿ‘. Definitely one of the more interesting mooncakes I've encountered this year, especially since I'm a salted egg fan as well!

Finally managed to get my hands on their cassava chips. It was $1 cheaper than the fish skin and potato chips. Somehow I just couldnโ€™t get used to this. The crunch was wrong. I guess Iโ€™m still a potato fan.

Passed by this new Irvins Salted Egg kiosk at Orchard Gateway, right at the boundary of 313 Somerset. Hubby saw my ๐Ÿ‘€ and said, โ€œOk ok just buy.โ€ Fish skin and cassava chips were out, so I only got potato chips. Just nice for movie night at home. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Man Iโ€™m dissapointed, the crust was pretty mushy and salted egg flavour was mild. Back to eating the fish skins then ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
