Flaky, filled and perfectly delicious, the Thai-style lava mooncakes at this Monterey Park bakery runneth over with bright yellow salted egg yolk custard upon first bite. Each mooncake also features a layer of white bean paste inside, and the concentric circles of laminated dough make for sweets that look beautiful in an assorted box. For traditionalists, Aliya Lavaland's signature mooncake uses a mung bean dough, but you can also find brightly colored taro, matcha and black sesame varieties as well.
