Eddie Lin writes the blog Deep End Dining. He went to the legendary Phoenix Bakery for mooncakes, a delicacy eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The bakery has been in LA's Chinatown since 1938. Mooncakes usually contain red bean paste or lotus paste and a salted duck egg. When the cake is cut in half, it resembles a moon. These days, mooncakes are made with all kinds of things. The Phoenix Bakery also makes a fruit nut mooncake with seeds, candied fruit and Virginia ham.
Eddie will be emceeing the Mid-Autumn Festival in Chinatown.
