Shanghainese call these ‘mooncakes’ but they are available year round and not just during the mid autumn festival. It’s a kind of pastry with crispy and flaky shells with a variety of savory and sweet fillings. The most popular ones from this store are those filled with pork meat. They were very juicy and insanely wonderful fresh out of the oven. The shredded radish ones were just as amazing.

Picked up some breakfast pastries from Whole Foods. Their handheld pies are good. Always quite fresh.
