Colours of Mid-Autumn Mooncakes @ Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur

By Aiman Azri

The Colours of Mid-Autumn come vibrantly to life through Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur's 2018 selection of mooncakes, compellingly presented in sophisticated lacquer boxes adorned with silver rabbit and deer figurines.

Every year, we look forward to Concorde's intriguing packaging for its mooncakes, and this latest decorative gift-case set is no exception, with a lacquered finish that's available in four colours, pastel pink, pastel blue, yellow, and orange. 

These keepsake boxes, which each contain one mooncake, would look elegant on any dresser or desk, even after the Mid-Autumn Festival is over, especially for collectors who adore animal motifs.


Naturally, what's inside the boxes matters as much as the exterior - once again, Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur does justice to the tradition of mooncake-making, going bigger this year with 180-gram servings, all lovingly hand-crafted by the Concorde team helmed by chefs Ong Tuan Kok and Lim Pooi Foong.


The variety of mooncakes promises something for everyone, including all the fundamental favourites for every Mid-Autumn season. We sampled several of the choices, which proved potently rich in both flavour and texture; families and friends will relish temptations like the Pure Lotus Double Yolk, which beautifully balances the creamy paste and the savoury yolk.

The baked mooncakes come in these sets:

Yellow And Orange Giftboxes (Two pieces per set)
White Pure Lotus Paste
Green Tea Pure Lotus Single Yolk
RM88 per set

Pink and Blue Giftboxes (Two pieces per set)
Japanese Red Bean
Pure Lotus Double Yolk
RM88 per set

Set A MOONCAKE Giftbox (Four pieces)
Japanese Red Bean
White Pure Lotus Paste
Pure Lotus Double Yolk
Pandan Pure Lotus Paste
RM148

Set B MOONCAKE Giftbox (Four pieces)
Pure Lotus Paste
Pure Lotus Single Yolk
Assorted Fruit Nuts
Green Tea Pure Lotus Single Yolk
RM148

Concorde's set of snow-skin mooncakes is also alluring, led by the perennial bestseller of Snowskin with Musang King Durian. The hotel sources its fresh durians from a respected orchard in Sungai Ruan, Raub - the end result is durian mooncakes with soft, supple fillings, complete with the natural nuances of the King of Fruits.

The Snowskin series comes in the following sets: 

Snowskin with Musang King Durian
Two pieces RM98
Four pieces RM168

Snowskin with Yam and Egg Yolk
Two pieces RM88
Four pieces RM148

Snowskin Lotus Paste with Longan and Wolfberry
Two pieces RM88
Four pieces RM148

Snowskin Lotus Paste with Roselle
Two pieces RM88
Four pieces RM148

The Musang King Mooncakes should be stored in the freezer, thawed for five to 10 minutes before serving. The other snowskin mooncakes can be stored in the fridge.

  1. At one time, my favourite hotel...and my favourite lobby lounge, Crossroads.

    I love those animals on top of the boxes - I wonder if they can withstand the abuse by the mail-handling people if anyone were to send me one.
