Mooncakes from Ming Yue Confectionery, Ipoh



 The very next morning, Mamarazzi woke Papa and me up early. Time to go downstairs for the complimentary breakfast provided by the hotel .

Nothing much la there. The usual fare . Could be due to the hotel having full occupancy, the kitchen food were a bit messed up.

Papa took some "Half boiled" eggs, but when he cracked the eggs....it was more of "hard boiled" instead. The yolk were nearly cooked. Adui...

 I created new drink..I named it "Orple Juice". A mixture of apple and orange juice. Had a light breakfast .

Off we went to buy mooncakes from Ming Yue Confectionery. We have been there last year and Mamarazzi love their Mooncakes. It's cheap and at least suit her taste buds.

From what she heard...usually when they started to sell mooncakes, the queue could be a few shops long. And if you re lucky when you come to the head of the line there will be mooncakes left for you to buy.

We arrived there around 9.30am and the queue was two shops long. A lady who was queueing behind of Mamarazzi said she came and buy the day before at 9am but when she got to the front of the queue, many types off mooncakes was out of stock already. Have to wait for the next baking session which some say in the afternoon. 


A glance at the price....no wonder everyone are grabbing moon cakes from here. Where else can you get single yolk mooncakes for less than RM5? Even those sold in Pasar Malam cost more than that leh.

The lady in front of Mamarazzi bought 15 boxes! And it cost her about RM300 plus only! Mamarazzi caught mooncakes borong fever didn't buy much la...just a few only la *blush blush*. The lady in white cap busy counting Mamarazzi's purchases.



 Business very good leh. Saw the old lady and the man busy folding the boxes for the shop to use. 




Jeng! Jeng! Our Mooncakes.....a bit only la. Last year Mamarazzi only managed to get Red Bean Paste and Lotus Paste mooncakes as they ran out of others. This year, as she was early, she managed to grab the ones she wanted. Bought red bean paste mooncakes, lotus paste single yolk, pandan lotus paste single yolk mooncake and mixed nuts mooncakes only la.

Papa asked why never buy 4 yolks mooncakes. Mamarazzi was like "HUH?" eat yolk only ka? But now come to think of it...since the double yolk mooncakes is less than RM6..she should have bought those instead leh. Adui.....


When she cut the Single Yolk Lotus Paste mooncakes she was so surprised. She thought she took the wrong ones instead. Took mixed nuts one ka? Wah.....so generous with the melon seeds leh.

Papa said the mooncakes taste good. Not that sweet. Just nice. Would be perfect if they would roast the melon seeds first as it would be more aromatic.

Mamarazzi also cut open her Red Bean paste mooncakes. Wah....also a lot of melon seeds in it. She loves mooncakes with a lot of melon seeds. She said taste just right for her. Should have bought more.

Here is the address if you like to try out their mooncakes :-

Address: 50, Jalan Peh Kee Koh, Taman Kampar, 30250 Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia
Be there early and be prepare with Plan A , Plan B and Plan C just in case they ran out of the ones you wanted. Don't waste time but choosing only when you come to the front of the queue.

  2. eih, breakfast in the hotel eating "medium done" soft boiled eggs?? hehe, maybe like Mamarazzi said, full occupancy and the kitchen could have been too busy to prepare more food, hence forgotten to keep track of the cooking time of the soft boiled eggs gua?? hehe.. but Small Kucing so pandai, created "Orple Juice" leh, next time maybe he can be a bartender, creating his own cocktails woh~~

      The place is famous for its Fa Sang Peang. Very sedap. Next time buy and try. But now near mooncakes festival they dont make that lo. they solely make mooncakes

  7. kus semangat mak oi!! look at the filling of the mooncake, really generous leh.. Uncle SK also shocked, like Mamarazzi described, macam mixed nuts mooncake like that.. those usual ones bought here, probably less than 30% of the seeds there lor.. Uncle SK doesn't fancy egg yolks leh, he prefers pure lotus paste of red bean paste, actually lotus paste is more expensive than egg yolks but why those mooncakes with egg yolks are selling more expensive?? hahaha..

    1. Probably coz salted eggs now the cheapest is 70 sen one biji . See the price of the single yolk and double yolk mooncake. It looks like rm1 difference.

      Hahaha you same like Mamarazzi and me ya. dont like yolk punya in the mooncakes

  9. Whoah, the prices are amazing! This type of no frills mooncake can be cheaper lah. I think it is just as good or maybe even better than those fancy expensive ones. Very worth it!

    1. yes...for mamarazzi it taste nicer that the expensive ones. She likes plain red bean paste with kuaci. Too many things in the mooncake just confuse the tastebuds

  17. This place is famous for their moon cakes, cheap and taste good! I used to buy the 5 assorted nuts moon cakes for myself and moon cakes with double yolks for my children. Now no longer buying because must watch our diet. You were very fortunate to get what you wanted in spite of the long queue.

  18. Woi that's too cheap leh!! The other day I went to the pasar malam near my KL home, they were selling lotus paste single yolk for RM 12 per mooncake, my dad almost fainted! I should tell him to buy in Ipoh when he balik kampung next time. His kampung is Taiping...

  19. Surprisingly I never been to this shop though I am an Ipoh nang. Well, probably I am too pamper and wait for others to feed me...hahahah.. Well, with all the new flavours like durian, kopi, green tea and etc, its nice to find these traditional moon cakes makers around. They are a bunch of shops that may extinct someday.
