Modern. Minimalist. Whimsical. Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s contemporary mooncake gift boxes have raised the ante again for Mid-Autumn Festival this year.
After last year’s runaway best-selling 'bejewelled' gift boxes, the Hotel has gone square with sleek and minimalist lacquer boxes. Available in a set of two, the Mid-Autumn gift box set comes in alluring baby blue and candy pink hues or sunny yellow and vibrant orange. A whimsical bunny and a reindeer adornment on top gives the boxes a refined touch of ‘bling’.
To make an even greater impression on intended Mid-Autumn Fest recipients, the boxes are presented with finesse in a classy, rectangular matte silver cover gold-embossed with the Concorde Hotel KL logo and the appropriate festive greeting.
Each mooncake is also hygienically sealed in plastic wrapping, and held in a silver matte box. The Pink & Blue Giftbox (RM88+) proffers Japanese Red Bean and Pure Lotus Double Yolk mooncakes while the Yellow & Orange Giftbox (RM88+) comprises White Pure Lotus Paste and Green Tea Pure Lotus Single Yolk mooncakes.
Newer variants joining the festive array this year are Snowskin Lotus Paste with Longan & Wolfberries, Snowskin with Yam & Egg Yolk and Snowskin Lotus Paste with Roselle mooncakes (pix above). These creations are priced at RM88+ for the 2 pc giftbox set, RM148+ for the 4 pc giftbox set.
We like the longan-wolfberries combination as the mooncake tastes pleasantly sweet with hints of fruitiness coming through on the palate. The roselle version evokes a subtle tanginess which balances the expectant sweetness somewhat.
