Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur presents a selection of delectable mooncakes in honour of the 2019 Mid-Autumn Festival, more popularly known as the Mooncake Festival. Celebrate one of the most important occasions in Chinese culture in the traditional way, by gifting handcrafted mooncakes to the special people in one’s life. The pastry chefs at Yun House, the Hotel’s signature Chinese restaurant, have created a special mooncake menu for the season, with varieties ranging from time-honoured to innovative.
Choose from an array of homemade mooncakes with heavenly crusts and luxurious fillings. Baked mooncakes are available in premium flavours such as oolong tea and osmanthus with lotus seed paste (MYR 45 per piece); and traditional assorted nuts (MYR 45 per piece).
Other luscious flavours include lotus seed paste with double yolk, white lotus seed paste; pandan lotus paste with single yolk; and black sesame with lotus paste (all at MYR 45 per piece).
A selection of delicate snow skin mooncakes is also available, including charcoal lava (MYR 45 per piece); homemade snow skin blueberry chocolate (MYR45 per piece); and pandan with bird’s nest (MYR 55 per piece).
For a gift that truly stands out, opt for the most exclusive mooncake in town – lotus seed paste with 8 egg yolks (MYR 208 per piece). Four Seasons has designed a beautiful, reusable gift box for these mooncakes, available in single- and double-decker editions.
Determined by the lunar calendar, the Mooncake Festival falls toward the end of summer, when the moon is at its fullest and most luminous. Families and friends gather together to share mooncakes and appreciate the radiant beauty of the night sky – a custom that signifies unity and happiness. The round shape of the pastry, inspired by the moon, symbolises reunion, harmony and completeness. These sweet delights are also edible works of art, with intricate patterns decorating their surface.
In conjunction with the Mooncake Festival, an afternoon of exquisite flavours awaits at The Lounge at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur – perfect for an unforgettable dining experience with family or friends. Available daily from 2:30 to 5:30 pm from August 5 to September 14, 2019, the mooncake-themed afternoon tea is priced at MYR 148 (inclusive of taxes).
The Mooncake Menu at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be available for order today until September 13, 2019. To reserve, call 03-2382-8640 or get in touch via the Four Seasons App.
