It has been said that the second most important festival in China is the Mid-Autumn festival and one cannot celebrate without the traditional Chinese pastry called mooncakes. One with the festivity and in preserving traditions, Marriott Hotel Manila introduces their version of the moist Chinese delicacy. Meticulously handcrafted by brilliant chefs to spread love in every bite, the hotel’s mooncakes have tasteful patterns on the crust of the pastry skin, which envelops the dense and delish filling.
The hotel, considering the discerning tastes of patrons, made three variants to choose from depending on their fancy; the Lotus paste made of Lotus seed are considered to be the most delicious and luxurious filling for mooncakes; the red bean paste is sweet and is the most commonly used filling for the traditional pastry; while the red date filling is made of ripe fruits of the jujube plant that makes a dark red paste with a fruity tang and a pinch of sourness. While the hotel’s mooncake is a marvel to the palate, it is an ideal gift with its elegant red box with intricate gold embellishments. Be it for a gift to your loved ones, a thank you token to corporate friends, or just for yourself indulgence, Marriott Manila’s mooncake gift set suits every purpose for only P1888 nett for every box of 6 and is available at the hotel’s Marriott Café bakery and Crema starting September 1 until September 15, 2016 only.
