Delicious Decade of Mooncake
The mooncake season is upon us again. My first time over to Summer Palace Restaurant at Putrajaya Marriott Hotel, I got to sample their mooncakes in conjunction with the Mid-autumn Festival celebrations. Being one of the most important festivals of the year, the Mid-Autumn festival becomes a reason to gather family to share mouthwatering mooncakes with each other, to to give them away to close friends and clients as gifts.

|Beautiful oriental packaging|
Traditionally, the mooncake is round in shape, a symbol of unity, with a thin pastry layer and a rich filling made from lotus seed paste or red bean paste with an egg yolk in the centre. In recent years, the variety flavors of mooncakes and shapes have become more prominent, with exciting flavors such as green tea proving to be a popular choice.
|Many choices available|
|Love the golden egg yolk in the centre|
Celebrating this year's Mid-Autumn Festival, Chef Chan Wooi Leong introduced to us an assortment of delightful mooncakes with a choice of 2 customized boxes that comes with the mooncakes within. Avid box collectors would be pleased indeed, as the oriental design and quality of the mooncake boxes were on another level all-together.
