InterContinental Kuala Lumpur's Mooncakes 2017

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time whereby families gather together, enjoy mooncakes and watch the full moon (a symbol of abundance, harmony and good fortune).

This year, Tao Chinese Cuisine in InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is featuring six selections of baked mooncakes and four types of snow skin mooncakes; a mix of old time favourites and new flavours, all handmade individually by Master Dim Sum Chef Lo Tian Sion and his team.

The elegant boxes are inspired by the vivacious plum blossoms, representing spring, beauty, purity and honour. Two colours are available - a choice of luminous gold or charcoal grey. The two-tier mooncake boxes can be converted into a storage box for your stationary or jewellery later on.

The baked mooncake flavours on offer this year are the classics such as White lotus paste with single egg yolk (RM28), Pure white lotus paste with nuts (RM26), Shanghai single yolk (RM32) and Golden Jade (RM26). These are all Halal-certified.

Two of their bestselling baked mooncakes are the Scarlet baked snow skin with pandan and salted egg bean paste (RM30) and Bamboo charcoal with assorted nut paste (RM32). The scarlet mooncake gets it beautiful red hue from beetroot powder; the filling was smooth and not too sweet, which I appreciated.

Chef's signature mooncake for 2017 is the Snow skin with pure durian and salted caramel chocolate (RM42). The durian filling was rich and creamy, and a handmade salted caramel chocolate truffle is encased in the centre of the mooncake.

Other snow skin mooncake flavours available are Marble snow skin with pandan paste and single egg yolk (RM28), Roselle snow skin with cheese and spirulina paste (RM28) and Sesame snow skin with Japanese purple potato and green tea (RM28). We sampled the latter and the flavours of the sweet potato and slightly bitter matcha matches well with one another.

The mooncakes are available until 4 October 2017 at the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur lobby counter. There is a 15% discount for CIMB, Citibank, HSBC, Maybank and UOB card holders for purchase of box of 4.

Opening times: Lunch: Monday to Friday 12.00pm-2.30pm; Dinner 6.30pm-10.30pm.

Location: Tao Chinese Cuisine, InterContinental Hotel Kuala Lumpur, 165 Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
