Mooncakes: Oriental Showpiece @ Concorde Hotel

Concorde Hotel's mid-autumn mooncakes this year combine classic style with contemporary sleekness, offering beloved traditional varieties in an instantly memorable packaging: Cylinder-shaped jars, distinctively designed & uniquely practical.

 We love the look of each jar, which comes free for each purchase of four mooncakes. It features two components: an inner translucent glass jar in a choice of purple, orange or fuchsia, plus an outer stainless steel jar holder with an intricate Oriental pattern. You can use it as a beautiful ornament or turn it into a candle holder, vase or storage container - an eye-catching showpiece & collector's item that may endure for years, long after the mooncakes they hold have been consumed & enjoyed.

 Trust Concorde's cheerful chef Loong to ensure that all the most cherished & coveted mooncake recipes are accounted for - 11 altogether: pure lotus, pure lotus single yolk, double yolk, white pure lotus, white pure lotus single yolk, golden pandan pure lotus, golden pandan pure lotus single yolk, white lotus black sesame, Japanese red bean, assorted fruits & nuts, & snowskin with Musang King durian. Each 180-gramme, halal mooncake costs between RM24.50 to RM42 nett (the most expensive is the Musang King, while the others are all below RM30 each). Four mooncakes (which fit perfectly into one jar) typically cost between RM98 - RM168 nett, but Concorde has introduced a cost-saving offer this year: a 15 percent discount for the purchase of a single jar containing four mooncakes, 20 percent discount for 3 jars & above & 25 percent for 50 jars & above.

Concorde's mooncakes meet the mark, with finely executed fillings that bring back fond memories of mooncake feasts with families & friends. These flavours prove elegantly clean & clear, expertly balanced & buoyant, boasting well-tuned textures.

 The mooncakes are available at Concorde Hotel KL's beautiful lobby booth everyday, 1030am-10pm, until Sept. 29. Shoppers can also snap them up at the Mid Valley Exhibition Mall (east entrance lobby, ground floor) on Sept. 9-27. Many thanks to the Concorde team for having us over these mooncakes.

  1. Yes.. That's a great idea! Instead of throwing away the usual box after consuming the moon cakes, we can use it as decoration stuff... Brilliant!
