Park Hotel Group's Mid-Autumn Treasures

Media Invite

Light those lanterns and round up the family! The Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner again and as always, get ready for the invasion of the mooncakes. 

This year, Park Hotel Group celebrates Mid-Autumn Festival's joyous reunions with a luxurious ensemble of 12 Mid-Autumn treasures and new luscious mooncake creations, all exquisitely handcrafted by its award-winning Park Palace restaurant.

Were the mooncakes worth the calories? Erm, just ask the monkies who could not seem to stop stuffing their mouths with mooncakes during a media tasting session we attended at Grand Park City Hall last week.

Personally, I prefer mooncakes in their traditional forms and Park Hotel's Baked Mooncakes with White Lotus Seed Paste ($62 -$65 for a box of 4) do not disappoint. The lotus seed paste was smooth and not overly sweet, coupled with a golden brown soft crust.

If you are a fan of teochew-style mooncakes, then be sure to check out Park Palace's signature Golden Yam mooncakes ($62 - $68 for a box of 4). Boasting a fine crisp and flaky golden outer crust with silky pumpkin and mung bean paste, the Golden Pumpkin with Mung Beans & Single Yolk mooncake's taste is further amplified by a salted egg yolk core.

But the mooncakes that truly stole the limelight were these dazzling majestic jewels, symbolising pearl, jade, gold and yellow topaz.

My photos may not do justice to the mooncakes' appearance, but these Snowskin Mooncakes definitely thrilled everyone with their glittering velvety soft skins.

The Golden Cognac Truffle in Snowskin mooncakes ($58 for a box of 8) exude fruity notes of premium cognac... which probably explained why I loitered around these mooncakes for the longest time (hic).

If you prefer something non-alcoholic, how about the indulging in the Imperial Jade & Coconut Truffle In Snowskin mooncakes ($58 for a box of 8) which pairs a refreshing coconut swirl with a creamy chocolate shell core?

The Pearly Lychee & Lychee Snowskin mooncakes ($58 for a box of 8), on the other hand, tempted the wifey with its sweet filling and chewy fresh lychees.

The monkies' fave? Of course it had to do something with chocolate! The Royal Topaz With Nougat & Chocolate Pops in Snowskin mooncakes ($58 for a box of 8) perfectly fuses the subtle sweetness and texture of the white lotus paste with nougat and crunchy chocolate pops, making every bite a delicious and crunchy one.
