MOONCAKES from the Shangri-La Singapore! Long renowned for their superb mooncakes, this year Shangri-La is focussing on the classic flavours.

This year the iconic Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival falls on 10 September 2022 which is the 15th Day of the 8th Lunar Month or Chap Goh Meh. Savour exquisite mooncake creations from Shangri-La Singapore! There is a tasteful selection of limited-edition showstoppers including the bespoke Origin Bar Cocktail Snowskin Mooncakes which pack a punch, the exceptional Shangri-La Mooncake Selection Gift Box with 50-year aged Mandarin Peel, and the elegant Signature Mini Baked Custard with Bird’s Nest to convey well wishes of good health. For the little ones, delight in an exclusive kid’s gift set with mini Oreo milk mooncakes housed in an adorable super-cute rabbit-shaped box. This is a reference to the Moon Rabbit.

The Origin Bar Cocktail Snowskin Mooncakes come with a bottle of Moon Tipplers Cocktail! These unique creations consist of four Origin Signature Cocktail Snowskin Mooncakes – a take
on the bar’s signature cocktail, each mooncake is filled with spiced pineapple marmalade, lime
zest, white lotus paste, white chocolate gin truffle, dry gin and vermouth; and the remainder are
created with inspiration from Negroni Cocktail, this delectable treat is filled with rich dark
chocolate paste, spiced chocolate rum, Campari and vermouth.

There is a new baked flavour – Yam with Red Bean
and Shredded Coconut ($78 for a box of four)! Yam and red bean are blended to form a smooth as silk
paste, before shredded coconut is introduced to give the pastry a satisfying bite.

Also available are…
the popular Shang Palace Four Treasures ($85) and baked mooncakes classics such as the
Reduced Sugar White Lotus Paste with four, double and single yolk, and mixed nuts with chicken
ham. Each comes in a hexagonal box with four drawers, available in three colours of red, turquoise
and gold, and embellished with peonies that symbolise luck and prosperity. For the health conscious there is Reduced Sugar White Lotus Paste with 1, 2 or 4 Egg Yolks. The Mooncake skin is very thin at only 2mm and the Lotus Seed paste is very fine and velvety.
