Mid-Autumn Artistry at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
With the Mid-Autumn Festival approaching, fans of mooncakes are in for a yummy treat to savour with their loved ones. This year, The Ritz- Carlton, Millenia Singapore presents a contemporary selection of artisan snowskin mooncakes, alongside an exquisite range of traditional baked mooncakes. Purchase early to enjoy the early bird discounts!
While all the flavours were delectable, we were especially impressed with the new White Lotus Seed Paste with Five Grains mooncake ($72/4 pcs). Not only does the addition of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, oats, and sesame seeds elevate the texture of the lotus paste filling, it also makes this baked mooncake a healthier and nuttier option. For those who wish to enjoy a variety of classic baked flavours, the Assorted Baked Mooncakes is the perfect choice, comprising the White Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolk, the White Lotus Seed Paste with Five Grains, and the White Lotus Seed Paste mooncakes ($74/4pcs).
An offshoot of the traditional baked mooncake, the Mini Custard Lava with Vanilla features a palatable combination of salted egg yolk and vanilla. This unique flavour is best savoured warm to elicit the smooth, molten texture of its core.
We were pleased to find that The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore has introduced two new flavours to their signature Assorted Mini Snowskin Martini mooncakes this year – the mangotini and orangetini flavours will appeal to those who fancy a taste of summer.
Popular favourites such as the lycheetini and espressotini remain available, and are worth the extra calories. We also love that there are chocolate truffles encased within each martini flavoured mooncake and that they are not cloyingly sweet.
The Assorted Mini Snowskin Martini Set ($72/8 pcs) is elegantly presented in a limited edition fuchsia lacquer box.
Back by popular demand, the Mini Snowskin ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Durian mooncakes ($78/8 pcs) come in a gorgeous blue lacquer box decorated with floral motifs. Smooth and creamy, each mooncake is generously filled with delectable durian pulp. It is best enjoyed chilled.
