2015 Mooncakes @ Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur

This year, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be offering 12 varieties of mooncakes; 7 traditional baked and 5 mini snow skin mooncake flavours. The baked mooncakes are priced between RM26 to RM32, while the mini snow skin ones are priced between RM19 to RM27.

We sampled 4 of their baked varieties, namely the white lotus seed paste (RM30), lotus seed paste with double yolk (RM31), yam lotus seed paste with single yolk (RM29) and Shanghai pandan lotus seed paste with single yolk (RM28). All mooncakes are handmade.

Both the white lotus seed paste and lotus seed paste with double yolk are traditional flavours which are favorites with hotel patrons. The smooth, sweet filling contrasted with the salty egg yolk is a classic, winning combination.

We also got to try two new flavours, the yam lotus paste with single yolk and Shanghai pandan lotus seed paste with single yolk. We found the yam lotus paste to be slightly less sweet, which would be perfect for the more health-conscious. We loved the Shanghai pandan lotus paste; the pastry was crumbly and the pandan lotus seed paste filling was slightly less dense and had a light, almost melt-in-the-mouth texture to it.

The mooncakes are presented in unique floral designed boxes, and with a minimum purchase of 4 pieces of baked (and 6 pieces ping pei) you will also receive a deluxe gift box. There is also an exquisite 3-tier premium gift box with 4 mooncakes in each tier (RM480). A rebate voucher valued at RM20 will be given for every purchase of a box of mooncakes, to be used at Shang Palace, Zipangu, Lafite and Lemon Garden Cafe. The mooncakes are available from 21 July to 27 September.

For full range of flavours, please see here. Popular ping pei flavours here are durian (RM23) and custard and bird's nest (RM27).

Thank you Shangri-La KL for the mooncakes :)
