eating moon cakes in San Francisco's China Town

 China Town, San Francisco

A  traditional wedding cake-we didn't get any of the cake but we did try a Moon cake with 1 egg yolk. Wikipedia states that moon cakes have "A thick filling usually made from lotus seed paste is surrounded by a relatively thin (2–3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs."  DUCK EGGS!!! I wish there had been an ingredient list available.  I didn't understand anything the lady was telling me (in Chinese) but ate it anyway.  Not too bad, but I will pass next time a Chinese lady hands one to me.
