Chocolate lovers rejoice. The hotel's luxurious honey chocolate collection will definitely satisfy your mooncake cravings. Featuring four flavours – dark chocolate, milk chocolate and salted toffee, white chocolate passion fruit with mango and roasted silician pistachio. As its name suggests, the mooncakes in this collection have honey mixed in them, and it isn’t just normal honey – the honey used is raw and unprocessed leatherwood honey, originating from the pristine rainforests of the Tarkine region in Tasmania. Besides it’s amazingly sweet taste, leatherwood honey has a variety of health benefits including boosting one’s immune system.
Each mooncake is handcrafted with precision, coming together perfectly with its chocolate shell infused with creamy mousse-like filling and its luscious honey centre. Packaged in gorgeous honeycomb-shaped gift boxes, these mooncakes will be on sale at the hotel’s lobby till 15 September, and they can also be purchased at selected retail booths in shopping malls island-wide. The mooncakes are priced at $88 per box (8 pieces per box).
In addition to the chocolate mooncakes, master chef Steven Ng of Shang Palace has created three new innovative flavours of the baked variety: mini baked lychee mooncake with rose, mini baked low sugar lotus paste mooncake with macadamia nuts, and mini baked mocha mooncake with Hokkaido milk. ◆ Lobby level, Shangri-la Hotel Singapore, 22 Orange Grove Road.
