Cebu Daily News - - LIFE - [TRICIA GABRIEL DEMILLO] [PAO LO

IT’S that time of the year for our Chi­nese friends as it is the sea­son to cel­e­brate the Mid-Au­tumn fes­ti­val oth­er­wise known as the Moon Fes­ti­val.

Cel­e­brated ev­ery 15th of the 8th lu­nar month, the Moon­cake Fes­ti­val dates back over 3,500 years and is the sec­ond grand­est fes­ti­val in China.

In keep­ing with this tra­di­tion, the best and most au­then­tic Chi­nese restau­rant in Cebu, Tin Gow lo­cated at Wa­ter­front Cebu City Ho­tel and Casino of­fers moon­cakes in a va­ri­ety of tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary fu­sion fla­vors.

Red Bean, Lo­tus with Salted Egg and Green Tea are just among the tra­di­tional Chi­nese fla­vors of­fered in Tin Gow. For those look­ing for a lo­cal and au­then­tic Filipino touch for their moon­cake, fu­sion fla­vors like Ube Tan­d­uay, Puto Cheese, and Co­conut Dried Mango are a few of the con­tem­po­rary fla­vors cus­tomers can choose from.

For P250 each, you can al­ready take part in this an­cient Chi­nese tra­di­tion. Cus­tomers can also en­joy one free moon­cake for ev­ery five pieces that they buy at Tin Gow un­til Oc­to­ber 2.

Most Chi­nese re­gard the Moon­cake Fes­ti­val as their way of thanksgiving for a boun­ti­ful har­vest as it also marks the end of sum­mer's har­vest.

You may visit Tin Gow from 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM for lunch and 6:00 PM to 10:30 PM for din­ner at the Gourmet Walk, lobby level of the Wa­ter­front Cebu City Ho­tel and Casino. For reser­va­tions and in­quiries, you may call them at 032232-6888 lo­cal 8607.
