Moonlit Garden: Mid-Autumn Festival Mooncakes at InterContinental Kuala Lumpur
Celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival in style with InterContinental Kuala Lumpur’s exquisite mooncake collection, the ‘Moonlit Garden.’ This year, the award-winning Tao Chinese Cuisine brings you a selection of artisanal mooncakes that perfectly capture the spirit of the season.
What makes this collection truly exceptional is the thoughtful craftsmanship behind it. The mooncakes are presented in ‘Moonlit Waters’ and ‘Moonlit Blossoms’ boxes, both meticulously crafted from natural bamboo. These boxes are not just containers; they are works of art adorned with delicate carvings of koi fish, paying homage to the hotel’s lush koi garden. You’ll also find cherry blossom motifs, symbolizing hope and renewal, elegantly adorning the boxes. These motifs draw inspiration from the mesmerizing floor-to-ceiling glass panels that grace the entrance to Tao.
In 2023, sustainability takes center stage, aligning with IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Journey to Tomorrow initiative. Meera Raj, the General Manager, emphasizes the hotel’s commitment to creating a positive impact on the environment and the community. The intricate designs on the mooncake boxes symbolize longevity and serve as a reminder to make responsible choices that celebrate our environment, ensuring future generations can bask in its beauty.
The ‘Moonlit Garden’ collection represents a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, curated by Tao’s master dim sum chef, Chef Lo. It offers both classic favorites and inventive new creations that will tantalize your taste buds.
Among the highlights are the Musang King Durian Snow Skin with Oats, a heavenly treat made with the exquisite and creamy flesh of authentic premium Musang King durian. For a fusion of diverse flavors, try the Baked Almond Purple Sweet Potato Skin with Pandan Paste, wrapped in a sweet potato-infused skin rich in natural antioxidants. And don’t miss the crowd favorite, Butterfly Pea Flower Snow Skin with Bird’s Nest and White Lotus Paste, infused with the renowned Bird’s Nest, known for its skin rejuvenating properties.
