The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is almost upon us (the exact date this year is Sept. 27, 2015) and you know what that means… Mooncakes! This time I went and checked out the much-lauded Makati Shangri-la Hotel Mooncakes.
Since I belong to a Chinese family, it’s inevitable that we have a lot of mooncakes around this time of year. I’ve tried a lot of locally made mooncakes as well as imported ones from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore.
Tower Box Mini (P2,288++ for 6 pcs)
Anyhow I dropped by Makati Shangri-la Hotel a couple of weeks ago to check out their mooncakes. They’re perfect as gifts because they’re packaged so nicely!
The long standing box above opens up and reveals six (6) mooncake cases arranged like steps. I was impressed!
Or you can opt for a classy floral box like this one, it comes in different colors! You can have matching floral individual mooncake boxes with it.
Makati Shangri-la Hotel mooncakes come in 2 sizes — Traditional (P588++ each) and Mini (P388++). It comes in 5 flavors: White Lotus, Red Bean, Red Lotus, Mixed Nuts, and Signature Black Sesame.
2 Tier Mooncake Traditional (P3,688++ for 8 pcs)
Alternatively, you can go for the biggest mooncake boxed set containing eight (8) traditional mooncakes.
Whoa, mooncake heaven!
If you can’t make up your mind which flavor to get, you can have a taste at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel mooncake counter at the lobby.
I took home a mini Signature Black Sesame Mooncake.
This is a first for me, I’ve never had Black Sesame Mooncake.
Love the design! The mooncake has the Shangri-la logo on it.
Looks like monggo but it’s actually black sesame! Love that all of the Makati Shangri-la Hotel mooncakes have twin yolks! The way the sweet filling and the salted egg combine is the best part of the mooncake for me! The verdict? Yummy — not too sweet and definitely unique!
Makati Shangri-la Hotel’s mooncakes will be available until Sept. 27, 2015. For more information, call 813-8888 or log on to http://bit.ly/MidAutumn2015 to view the Makati Shangri-la Hotel mooncake brochure.
