The box: This year’s mooncake boxes from Hilton are lavish affairs. A collaboration between Hilton and Malaysia’s leading international fashion designer Khoon Hooi, the boxes are enveloped in the same brocade fabric used in his Fall collection. There are two choices – the limited edition Midnight Bloom or the collector’s edition Blossom series box.
The flavours: There’s a wide variety of flavours to choose from, with this year’s signature snow skin mooncake being the Dragon Blossom (RM38). Very eye-catching with its bright fuchsia and cobalt blue hues, the Dragon Blossom boasts flavours of red dragon fruit and pineapple alongside the crunchy texture provided by macadamia nuts. Halal-baked mooncakes are also available, with traditional flavours such as White Lotus Paste and Pandan Paste with Single Yolk, and popular snow skin options are making a return with flavours like Musang King and Flower Drum.
Available at the hotel lobby as well as Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Mid Valley Megamall, 1 Utama Shopping Centre and Avenue K Shopping Mall. Until Sep 24. Alternatively, orders can be made online at www.takehome.hiltonkl.com. Mooncakes from RM35; Gourmet Couture gift box series, RM178 & RM198; Mid-Autumn series, from RM128.
