Mid-Autumn Festival is as significant as Chinese New Year because it is also a festival where family members gather to celebrate and appreciate the precious moment of togetherness while savouring the latest mooncake flavours.
This year, we will look forward to extraordinary flavours of mooncake to give your taste buds a new sensation it deserves.
InterContinental Kuala Lumpur
I’m sure you have tried all kinds of sweet flavours, but how about a salty one just like Chinese dish that you have in an Oriental eatery? The dine-in only Shanghai Style Baked Black Pepper Smoked Duck Meat with Yam by InterContinental Kuala Lumpur will cut it for a person who loves salty food. In addition, InterContinental also has few new snowskin flavours for the sweet tooth, including Japanese Green Tea & Cherry Jelly, Butterfly Pea Flower & Bird’s Nest and bestseller Durian Paste & Oats.
Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Bluemoon, the Hilton’s signature alcoholic mooncake made of Ameretto lotus paste with blueberry cheese Feuillantine is one that you must try if you’re a tippler. If you are not into alcohol, opt for Flower Drum, which made of lotus paste with soft custard egg yolk.
