The exquisite mooncake delicacies carefully crafted by dim sum chef Lo Tian Sion features old time favourites and new flavours handmade individually, to ensure good quality and taste are packed within each piece. The classic baked mooncakes are priced from RM28 nett per piece, starting with white lotus paste with almond nuts and single salted egg yolk (单黃榄仁白莲蓉月饼) representing the bright full moon during the festival; best-seller of white lotus paste with double salted egg yolks and almond nuts (双黃榄仁白莲蓉月饼); and pure white lotus paste with almond nuts (榄仁白莲蓉月饼).


Chef’s recommendation this festive is a new flavour with bamboo charcoal skin - a fascinating new addition to the baked skin series combining the fragrance of assorted nut (竹炭五仁月饼) in a distinctive charcoal crust. Another addition to this year’s baked skin series, the scarlet snow skin, includes the refined flavours of sweet snow skin infused with pandan and salted egg bean paste blend with beetroot powder (雪桃红翡翠咸豆蓉月饼), promising a classic baked skin experience unlike any other.

The vibrant baked mooncake series is complemented with the endearing delights of mini snow skin mooncakes, priced from RM20 nett per piece. The snow skin stars this year is a rich blend of mini “red prawn” durian moon cake with egg cream (迷妳冰皮紅蝦榴莲奶油月饼); mini tiramisu paste with assorted honey nuts (迷妳冰皮提垃米苏蜜糖果仁干月饼);and mini chestnut paste with diced hawthorn and pineapple paste (迷妳冰皮律子山楂鳳梨月饼), a petite beauty created with sprays of red hawthorn, making it a lovely, rosy treat perfect for picture opportunities.

Absolutely irresistible, the mini peanut butter snow skin, instilled with Japanese purple potato paste and yam omachi (迷妳花生冰皮日本紫薯芋茸麻糍月饼), is a great blend of Chinese and Japanese, with a surprise of omachi in the heart of the mooncake. The variant of mini snow skin will enthral guests with other choices of mini snow skin with pandan coconut paste in single yolk (迷妳冰皮翡翠椰茸单黄月饼);and mini yam and white skin with pumpkin and green tea paste (迷妳鸳鸯冰皮绿茶金瓜泥月饼).

 Among all the mooncakes, I still prefer the one with egg yolks in it. Their egg yolks is very different from what I tasted compared to mooncakes that are made commercially available. The egg yolk was really soft without that kind of hard and layered chewy feel. It just melt in your mouth the moment you have a bite. My only complain is that I personally think the egg yolk is a bit too little to my flavor haha.

If you love snow skin mooncake and durian, you will definitely love the "Red Prawn" Durian mooncake with yellow snowskin.  As for the mini mooncake with coconut floss, you can actually taste the texture of the coconut floss in one bite.

If you love nuts and something chewy, you will definitely love the bamboo charcoal skin with assorted nut paste.  I do consider this one as the healthier choice of mooncake since the fill is assorted nuts instead of the sweet white lotus paste.

The soft and melt in one bite eggyolk contained inside this handmade mooncake is good!

After tried out making the moon cake all by myself, it is definitely not an easy job to do as you need to be gentle so that the snow skin won't break easily and make sure the paste is well covered for a perfect outlook. Considering all these mooncakes are fully handmade and only available on limited time, it does come with a reasonable price. I do think that these are perfect gift during Mid-Autumn season especially when it comes with a beautifully crafted box and each mooncake well placed in a butterfly designed box.

Once again, thanks Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur for the invitation. I didn't expect I can get full by just tasting all the mooncakes flavor haha. Hopefully one day I can do a weekend getaway in your hotel and experience good in-house cuisine especially Tao Chinese Cuisine and dimsum. Cheers!
