Celebrating Mooncake Festival in Genting Highlands

Usually during Mooncake Festival, most of us will choose to celebrate at home with family, relatives or friends. Not to forget to have different kinds of mooncakes on the table and a pot of Chinese tea for sipping while watching the big bright moon. It was really an enjoying moment. However, have you ever thinking of changing the venue to a chilling mountain? Yes, I am talking about celebrating Mooncake Festival in Genting Highlands. Whole family and friends at the top of the mountain and watching the moon in a much closer view.
What is more exciting is accompanying by a series of premium mooncakes which you will not get anywhere else except on this very mountain itself. Delicious new options for the modern mooncake fan include the light snow skin mango with pomelo, white lotus paste with dried mandarin orange jingsa, sweet corn paste with caramel nuts, cheese jingsa, Golden Jade with lime and nuts, and Golden Jade with buttermilk custard. These new alternatives are lighter in texture and flavour, while still espousing the traditional feel of the more established mooncake variants.
Meet the man behind these amazing mooncakes, Chef Gan Chee Keong. All mooncakes sold are produced in Hotel’s mooncake production kitchen, where a team of specialised mooncake makers work tireless to come up with timeless and creative new culinary offerings with which to celebrate one of the most joyous seasons in the Chinese calendar of festivals.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
