Royal Canton KL's Mooncakes

This year, Royal Canton presents their inaugural mooncake collection, featuring nine varieties of traditional baked Cantonese mooncake as well as nine types of snow skin mooncake.

What's special about these mooncakes?

All mooncakes sold here at Royal Canton are made with no artificial colouring or preservatives.

As they're not too sweet, these mooncakes will suit the palates of those who are more health-conscious. One of the most unique things about them are that the chefs have used pine nuts, which is more expensive and adds an extra creamy dimension to the mooncakes. Pine nuts are also packed in health-promoting antioxidants.

Furthermore, Royal Canton also offers double egg yolk in some of their baked varieties, which is music to my ears as the more yolk, the better it is ;)

For the baked mooncakes, the flavours available are red bean, pandan lotus seed, white lotus seed, and assorted nuts. As they are an establishment serving pork, their Assorted Nuts baked mooncake features Yunnan Ham. BabySumoKids aren't usually fans of the nut ones, but they adored this and declared it delicious after the first bite.

Similarly for the snow skin mooncake, they offer red bean, pandan lotus seed, white lotus seed as well as yam and durian (made using D24 durians). Our favourites were the pandan lotus seed with pine nuts (RM15.80) and white lotus seed with pine nuts (RM16.80) which disappeared in record time after they were sliced.

YUE Mooncake Gift Set by The Westin Kuala Lumpur

We were well-impressed with The Westin Kuala Lumpur's mooncake box last year (we got to grow our own little terrarium garden), and wondered how they were gonna top it this year. Yet again we were wowed - this time with a beautifully designed floral mooncake box which also doubles up as a speaker. Each box is embedded with built-in Bluetooth speakers and is easy to operate - simply enable the Bluetooth connection on the speaker and connect using your smartphone and it's ready to use! BabySumoKids love playing their favorite tunes on the speaker so it's definitely a worthwhile addition to our home.

What about the mooncakes? The Westin KL is offering 7 types of traditional baked mooncakes as well as 1 snow skin mooncake. New this year are the Imperial Black, Five Sen5es Supreme Mixed Nuts and Mini Musang King durian. The Imperial Black gets its name from its charcoal skin and features ingredients such as dried longan and wolfberry - one of our favorites this year.

The Mixed Nuts mooncake gets an upgrade this year, and now features grilled chicken meat, chicken floss and dried scallops, giving it a more savoury finish. This is especially great for those who prefer something less sweet. Otherwise, they also offer a few varieties of low sugar mooncakes with white lotus paste.

This is the first time The Westin KL is offering a snowskin mooncake, with the King of Fruits taking the spotlight. Best eaten cold, this was creamy, rich and aromatic.

We were entertained by traditional Chinese music on the guzheng as we indulged in mooncakes

Other flavours on offer are Pandan Lotus, Pearl of Prosperity and Pure Red Bean Paste.

The YUE Mooncake Gift Set is priced at RM168 (for 4 traditional baked mooncakes) or RM240 (for 4 snow skin Musang King mooncakes). The previous BLOOM Mooncake Gift Set (with DIY terrarium) is also available at RM138 (for 4 traditional baked mooncakes) or RM210 (for 4 snow skin Musang King mooncakes).
