Mooncakes in Kuala Lumpur 2018

Mid-Autumn Festival is a big occasion in Malaysia, Singapore and China where hotels and brands compete to showcase their mooncake packaging design and interesting flavours. It is that time of the year where people flock promotion booths placing mooncake orders for gifts and personal consumption.

I’ve had the pleasure of checking out some of this year’s mooncakes and packaging from various brands – some stuck to the classic while others went all out with exciting flavours and colours. Here are 11 mooncake options in Kuala Lumpur to consider this year!

 

Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

P1440948Edited

Known for their durian snowskin mooncakes, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur levels up this year by introducing musang king durian mooncakes which are selling like hot cakes. Each piece retails at RM58 and this is considered one of the best durian mooncakes in Kuala Lumpur.

P1440958Edited

I’ve always enjoyed their chocolate mooncake series and this year’s offering is just as impressive – the gold dusted chocolate with sesame gianduja and oolong tea ganache (RM47) is worth checking out. The lychee with lotus paste snowskin (RM34.50) is also delicious; smooth and soft with fruity undertones.

Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur

P1330837Edited

Enjoy eight types of baked and snowskin mooncakes from Celestial Court, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur – encased in a traditional red box with gold handle. From the classic pure white lotus to snowskin creations like azuki, musang king and mango, these treats are available for sale from 1st August till 23rd September 2018.

I prefer the baked version but Jien likes the snowskin musang king better, so it depends on preference. The mooncakes are priced from RM32 nett (each) onwards and discount applies for bulk orders.

Sapphire Glitz

Golden Treasure

I’m more a fan of Dorsett Grand Subang’s signature mooncake, Sapphire Glitz; made with blue pea flower extract and filled with lotus paste and a single yolk at the centre. A classic done well, I must say. There’s an early bird offer of 15% discount for purchases made before 8th September 2018.
