JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur’s Shanghai restaurant will celebrate the forthcoming Mid‐Autumn or Mooncake Festival with its ever‐delightful mooncakes. Traditional Chinese mooncakes are eaten during the Mid‐Autumn Festival that occurs on the fifteenth day of the eight lunar month – falling in September in the Gregorian calendar.
Though mooncakes have come a long way in history, they are still considered an indispensable delicacy. With this is mind, Master Chef Kwok, together with his culinary team here at Shanghai have come up with an array of tantalising mooncakes to please the palate. The Snow Skin with White Lotus Paste Mooncake, a chilled mooncake filled with salted egg yolk and white lotus paste is delicately delicious, suitable for those who want something different from the classic baked mooncakes. Also available is the Black Sesame Mooncake filled with a generous amount of crunchy black sesame and smooth lotus paste. These differing textures lend a unique and delicious mouthfeel to the cake.
Shanghai’s mooncakes will be available August 13th through September 19th 2013 and are available individually, priced from MYR9.00++ onwards or in boxes where a variety of flavours can be selected and put together, making them great gifts for your loved ones and business associates. Guests may call Shanghai restaurant at (603) 2719 8288 to make a reservation or place an order.
