Traditionalists are bound to give the mooncakes at Sheraton Towers Singapore their stamps of approval. Bending conventional rules this year, Chef Chung Yiu Ming and his culinary team from Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant have subtly incorporated modern touches to the mooncakes without having lost the traditional appeal.
The Yellow Lotus Seed Paste with Cranberries and Hazelnuts is a new flavour introduced to its range of traditionally baked mooncakes this year that brings a touch of fruitiness and crunch in a delicate way.
The traditionally baked White Lotus Seed Paste with Double Egg Yolks mooncake remains highly favoured, available in a set of 4 in the 2014 Premium Box and Premium Jewellery Box at $88.
For other flavours, go for the Empress Treasure Box, priced from $63. Flavours include White Lotus Seed Paste with Single Egg Yolk ($63 for 4 pieces), White Lotus Seed Paste ($63 for 4 pieces), Yellow Lotus Seed Paste with Cranberries and Hazelnuts ($63 for 4 pieces), and Mixed Nuts with Yunnan Ham ($64 for 4 pieces).
Snowskin flavours include the Mini White Lotus Seed Paste with Champagne Truffle ($56 for 8 pieces), Mini White Lotus Seed Paste with Lemon Mandarin Truffle ($56 for 8 pieces) and Mini Green Tea White Lotus Seed Paste with Rosehip Truffle ($56 for 8 pieces).
