18 August 2012, Singapore – Mandarin Court in Mandarin Orchard hotel is one of the few remaining hotels that makes their mooncakes from scratch. From making the dough, wrapping the filling and baking these homemade traditional sweets, Mandarin Court prides itself for providing a good mix of traditional flavours as well as new and unique creations, all done in-house.
Traditionalists can look forward to Baked Mooncakes with Single (S$55 for 4) or Double Yolk (S$58 for 4) and White Lotus Paste. Or Baked Mooncake with Macadamia Nuts and Low Sugar White Lotus Paste (S$55 for 4). This is heaven for health conscious nut lovers!
If you like something savoury and crunchy, try the Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts and Spanish Jamón Ibérico Ham (S$62 for 4).
For those who are more adventurous, you can try the colourful and flavorful range of snowskin mooncakes.
The Mini Snow Skin Raspberry Mooncake (S$56 for 8) with anti-oxidants from berries is delightfully healthy and refreshing.
The Mini Snow Skin Cheese with Citrus Mooncake (S$56 for 8) is tangy, creamy and slightly cheesy. The tinge of sourness balances the heavier cheese very well. A unique and complementary combination.
My favorite however, is the Mini Snow Skin Lychee Martini Mooncake (S$52 for 8). It’s simple, familiar yet so classy.
For social or corporate gifting, you have to check out the Mandarin Premium Jewel Box Collection (S$138). It consists of 4 different baked mooncakes and a porcelain tea cup with Chinese tea leaves, packed into a spectacular leather gift-box that will definitely find its way into the bedroom as an alternative jewelry box.
Available at the Deli Counter, Hotel Lobby from 11am to 9pm from 3 – 30 September 2012.
