Black truffle with roasted chestnut and smoked duck from Marriott Marquis Bangkok Queen’s Park

Of the more than 10 different flavors on offer here, the black mooncake flavored with black truffle, roasted chestnut, smoked duck, egg yolk and white lotus paste is the real highlight (B2,888/4 pieces).
