Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, or more commonly named in Malaysia as Mooncake Festival – confirmed again that I’m in the right country when the nation recognizes that food is central to celebration and names it so. It is all about the mooncakes and one of the best places to get them in Malaysia, according to my local sources, is at Pun Chun Chicken Biscuits & Restaurant in Bidor. They have their very own goodie factory and KL foodies are willing to take the 1 1/2 hour trip to stock up on their specialities. Pun Chun is known for ginger and oyster mooncakes which are hard to come across in other parts of the country. A small family business, using traditional recipes and with over 70 years of experience, I can’t imagine a better place from which to source these dense rich treats.
