When I was a houseman, I had a well meaning Chinese friend who took the trouble to find me Halal Mooncake. He reassured me that it came from a certified halal bakery shop and wanted me to taste it. Indeed, it tasted interesting especially the Lotus Mooncake itself.
I am still looking for a Halal Mooncake but the ones in Aeon Jusco does not seem to have a big label/signage that spells HALAL.
