Mid Autumn Festival with A Twist at The Westin Kuala Lumpur


Westin Snow Skin Mooncake

When you read this post, it’s me Sid blogging from Bangkok while Sunny is on his way back from a short break in Penang attending a wedding. Big Boys Oven was very lucky as we had been given invited to visit Bangkok on an invitation from Tourism Association of Thailand (TAT) through via Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur which I will be reporting more about my trip in a day or two.

As the celebration of the tradisional Mid Autumn Festival is approching this early October, a week or two ago I had a tasting of mooncake at The Westin Kuala Lumpur. It was the showcase of their tradisional mooncakes and snow skin mooncakes with a distinctive Westin twist.

As for the snow skin selection, there were the awesome bailey coffee cream and macadamia nuts, the darling durian fantasy, the oriental black sesame paste with peanuts, the fragrant nutella with chocolate crunch, the chessy strawberry cheese cake with condense milk and the fabulous supperfoods green applae with cranberries and oats. I just love all of them, having to able to indulge a slice of each was just superb and yet makes me craving for more.

    we usually get mooncakes given by friends & family, and they are always the same type – brown on outside/brown on inside with egg yolk. so when i saw this photo i had no idea, that it came in pink! & yellow!

    they are so cute, i wonder if sydney has any like those to offer?

    i can only eat a quarter or two quarters at most.. and down with some hot tea mm

    You guys back home are pampered with different flavors of skin and filling. I guess each chef have his/her creativity juice out for this mooncake festival to create something different. Here, we only get same old same old.
