Mooncake Festival at Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta

Near the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, Chinese people always celebrates the popular harvest festival, which is the Mid-Autumn Festival. During the festival, they usually having some Mooncakes during friends or family gathering. It is also common to give packages of Mooncake to friends or family, to celebrate the festival.

So couple times ago I receive a package of Mooncakes from Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta. Under the direction of Chinese Executive Chef Benson Fok, Shang Palace at Shangri-la Hotel Jakarta prepares an elegant selection of eleven original moon cakes and seven mini moon cakes. Look at the luxurious packaging ! Definitely a show-stopper when you give it to your colleague, friends or even relatives.

Most Mooncakes consist of a thin, tender pastry skin enveloping a sweet, dense filling, and may contain one or more whole salted egg yolks in their center as the symbol of the full moon. There's also wide varieties of flavor that could be use nowadays. But sometimes, I just prefer a classic white lotus filling with egg yolk. Yum!

So the varieties of mooncake that you can order from Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta are the following : 
- Red Bean paste
- White Lotus with single/double yolks
- Red Lotus with single/double yolk
- Pandan Paste
- Healthy Five Grains
- White/Red Lotus Paste with Macadamia Nuts
- Black Sesame  

You can also place your order here ( only available from 19 Jul 2013 through 19 Sep 2013)
For me, I kind of like the Pandan and Black Sesame one. Both of it tasted bit unique compared to the classic flavors. I also like the Healthy Five Grains flavor. It has a nice crunch texture in the middle of the mooncakes. So how about you? Since it's near the mid-autumn festival, go get some of the mooncakes and celebrate !
