JenjalanKami was honored to be invited to attend the media preview of the Mid-Autumn Mooncake Festival at Ming Palace Restaurant, Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur. It was great to have a some taste about the various mooncakes available to celebrate this once-a-year festival, which is commonly called either Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival.
We were first briefed by the hotel team about the varities of flavours that they have to offer. Flavours ranges from Red Bean, Low Sugar White Lotus, Low Sugar White Lotus Single Yolk, Mixed Nuts, Matcha Tiramisu, Tropical Emerald, Pandan Lotus Single Yolk, Snow Skin D24 Durian, and the Best-Seller of all time – the Snow Skin Musang King, a soft snowy skin exterior texture with its smooth, unique lotus seed filling encased with focused Musang King paste. Such a colourful varieties, indeed!
Our favourite? Well, we brought some samples home, and our toddler can’t stop eating the Red Bean. Kids don’t lie!
We especially love the designs of the boxes that encases the mooncakes. It highlights the auspicious spirit of the festival, and comes with an option of either a box of one or a box of four.
For this festive, Corus is introducing two new additional flavours, the Blue Danube and Luminare. The Blue Danube has a fruity taste of the blueberry and yam, while the Luminare mixes the taste of the white lotus with mashed salted egg yolk. Looking for an exclusive packaging as a gift for friends? This box of drawers is perfect for that!
Corus also include two additional flavours in conjunction to a collaboration with DurianBB. The two flavours are DurianBB Crystal Mooncake, a crystal clear jelly like substance with a rich durian filling and DurianBB Snowy Mooncake, a soft white exterior texture which has a rich creamy concentrated durian filling.
You will also get a special DurianBB mooncake encase packages that are prepared for any purchases of the DurianBB mooncake sets. The packaging is cute and acts as heat shield, also comes with an ice pack! Now, isn’t that too cool?
