Delicious mooncakes are synonymous with the yearly Mid-Autumn Festival and the InterContinental Singapore delights us with a variety of flavours and texture this year with the creations from Man Fu Yuan. In conjunction with the InterContinental Singapore's 20th Year celebrations, the special commemorative box (which comes with every 4 pieces of mooncakes) which features the multifaceted Bugis is designed specifically by the director and designer of The Fingersmith Letterpress, Jacqueline Goh.
Man Fu Yuan brings out the delicately-crafted Snowskin Tea Mooncake Selection (冰皮精选茶系列月饼) this season which consists of four delectable flavours at a really reasonable price of S$66 (find out how you can save an extra 30% off this price below!):
- Earl Grey and Baileys Truffle with White Lotus Paste (伯爵茶奶酒白莲蓉)
- Japanese Matcha (日本抹茶)
- Oolong with Black Sesame Paste (乌龙黑芝麻)
- Rose with White Lotus Paste and Pistachio (玫瑰开心果白莲蓉)
Durian lovers will also be able to savour the decadent blend of premium Snowskin ‘Mao Shan Wang’ Durian Mooncake (冰皮猫山王榴莲月饼) at just S$64 for 4 pieces.
My personal favourite is one that debuted last year at the InterContinental Singapore - the Baked Shanghai Mooncake (枫糖上海单黄月饼) which is priced at S$64 for 4 pieces comes with a new (but equally satisfying) maple-glazed short crust pastry. The pastry is buttery and the smooth white lotus paste inside is of the right sweetness to balance the difference in flavours. This will definitely be a crowd-pleaser!
Commemorating the iconic InterContinental Singapore’s 20th Anniversary, the Collector’s Edition 二十周年纪念精美礼盒 (S$105) presents an assortment of four premium baked mooncakes in a distinctive satin box that is different from the other special commemorative boxes that you will receive with your 4-piece purchase. Bearing Jacqueline's exquisite illustrations, the InterContinental Singapore’s 20th Anniversary, the Collector’s Edition will feature the following four mooncakes:
- Baked Mooncake with Chestnut Paste (栗子红莲蓉夏果)
- Baked Mooncake with Double Yolks and White Lotus Paste (双黄白莲 蓉月饼)
- Baked Mooncake with Assorted Nuts (传统五仁月饼)
- Baked Maple-glazed Shanghai Mooncake with Single Yolk (枫糖上海单黄月饼)
