Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Mooncakes – What are the new flavours in 2016?
Be awed by Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant’s new, limited-edition Royal Gift Set comprising of White Lotus Seed Paste Baked Mooncakes with Prized Karasumi & Angelica, accompanied with an elegant aged old Pu-er tea set ($188 / box of 4). Besides reaping health benefits, these mooncakes boast three different sensations on your tastebuds – salty, sweet, with a hint of herbal essence. Complemented with aged old Pu-er originating from the Yunnan province in China, the premium mooncakes are encased in a charming red faux crocodile leather two-tier treasure chest hot-stamped with oriental lattice pattern. Personalization of mooncake boxes is also available with a minimum order of 50 boxes of mooncakes.
Back by popular demand is the sleek black and gold White Lotus Seed Paste with Black Truffle, Roasted Chestnut, Waxed Duck & Single Yolk ($80 / box of 4). The shimmering gold-dusted charcoal exterior of this mooncake is bound to impress while its savoury waxed duck bits, complemented with sweet roasted chestnuts leaves a lasting impression. In addition, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant is still offering their popular White Lotus Seed Paste with Chicken Bak Kwa & Assorted Nuts ($64 / box of 4) and White Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolk ($70 / box of 4).
Besides traditional baked mooncakes, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant offers snow skin mooncakes. New flavours include Chocolate Brownie with Cookies & Honeycomb ($61 / box of 8) and Salted Caramel with Peanut Praline ($61 / box of 8). The former will please the hearts of chocolate lovers with a decadent chocolate paste and crunchy cookie bits and an oozing honeycomb centre while the latter is a fusion between Asian traditions and Western flavours offering sweet and salty flavours.
For those who would like a little of everything, The Assorted Snow Skin Mooncakes ($66 / box of 8) contains these two new flavours, along with returning favourites – Sencha Green Tea with Japanese Red Bean and White Lotus Seed Paste with Egg Yolk. Another all-time favourite is the Pure ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Premium Grade Durian Snow Skin Mooncake containing copious amounts of the “Mao Shan Wang” durian.
Available from 11 August to 15 September 2016 at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel’s Forecourt Stall (by the hotel entrance).
