Indulge in the beautiful mooncake creations at Yan Ting (The St. Regis Singapore) this year with a combination of new and old. This Mid-Autumn Festival (2015), Yan Ting presents a medley of fresh flavours like the cranberry with salted egg yolk, lychee martini and the citrusy lemon.
To try as many flavours as possible, it is advisable to get the Assorted Snowskin Mooncakes set (S$75+ for a box of 8) which comes with the following four flavours:
- White Lotus Paste with Lemon Truffle
- Cranberry Paste with Salted Egg Yolk
- White Lotus Paste with Lychee Martini Truffle
- Black Sesame Paste with Melon Seeds
For the durian lovers, there is also a Pure 'Mao Shan Wang' Durian Indulgence (S$118+) version - do note that you can't actually select this one in your Assorted Snowskin Mooncake set for obvious reasons.
For those of you who are out to impress your family, Yan Ting has a premium gift set that is beautifully crafted and honestly, not that expensive - Cherry Garden at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is offering one for S$1,188+. The premium gift set comes with a beautifully-lacquered solid wood box as well as a Pu Er tea and clay teapot set alongside eight assorted snowskin mooncakes (S$147+) or four traditional baked mooncakes (S$167+).
Making a debut this year is the refreshing Cranberry Paste with Salted Egg Yolk Mooncake (S$73+ for a box of 8). The exterior of the mooncake is in a bright rose pink shade while the insides are brimming with a beautiful marriage of sweet cranberry paste and salted egg yolk.
Another one to watch out for this year from Yan Ting is the White Lotus Paste with Lychee Martini Truffle Mooncake (S$75+ for a box of 8). Combining the sweeter notes from a lychee martini and white chocolate truffle, this is definitely one to satisfy your mooncake cravings!
Additionally, perennial favourites like the White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk (S$79 for a box of 4) are also available.
