Continuing with a Chinese theme today, Autumn Moon Festival has started! Celebrating a number of things, from the harvest to legends as well as crafty rebellion planning, Autumn Moon festivals usually involve lots of food. Mooncakes, in particular, are enjoyed. The lotus- and bean-paste filled cakes also have egg yolks in the center, representing the moon. And T, knowing Gothamist's fondness for animals and food, gave us a mooncake shaped like a pig! We're curious about wear the egg yolk might be (the tummy?), but part of us doesn't want to cut it open, because it looks so cool in its plastic home.
