Mooncake feast at Dorsett Grand Subang

When will we be celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival this year? With Ramadhan over and people slowly making their way back into the city after their Hari Raya break, we found out that it is that time of the year again where the Chinese community around the world celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival or most of us would deliciously remember it as Mooncake savouring time. 

A couple of evenings ago, Darling, Ethan and I dined at The Emperor Chinese Restaurant at Dorsett Grand Subang. Mooncakes are available here since 19th July until 19th September and we just can’t wait to gobble them as both Ethan and I are a huge fan of mooncakes!

Of course we did not just eat mooncakes for dinner. We had their scrumptious signature Chinese dishes but I’ll blog about those later as I’m still over the moon over their mooncakes :P

The wide choice of baked and Crystal Skin mooncake flavours for us to indulge.

Ethan got excited seeing the huge servings of mooncakes and just can’t wait to sink his teeth into each and every one of them! 

We indulged in flavours such as Pandan Lotus Paste with Egg Yolk, Pure Red Bean Paste, Pure Sweet Potato Paste with Single Egg Yolk, White Lotus Paste with Double Egg Yolk, Green Tea Lotus Paste with Single Egg Yolk and for a healthier choice we tried the low sugar selection of White Lotus Paste with Single Egg Yolk and Pure White Lotus Paste

I’m glad that they stick to the traditional flavours and not fall for the usual marketing gimmick of making mooncakes with fanciful flavours just to tantalize buyers to buy each and every new flavours. I used to fall victim and buy every new flavours in the market only to find that I still prefer the traditional white lotus paste and red bean mooncakes >_<

Ethan on the other hand is a typical mooncake monster and will eat anything and everything that is served before him!

That greedy little monster got excited from the moment I told him that we will be eating mooncakes that evening but when I limit his mooncakes to only 9 pieces he wasn’t too pleased.

To satisfy his mooncakes indulgence, we brought home 4 pieces of mooncakes of his favourite flavours; Red Bean Paste, Pure Lotus Paste, Sweet Potato and Green Tea Single Yolk

Their Sweet Potato mooncakes seemed to be making the headlines this year being the favourite among guests. 

recycling mooncake boxes

Ethan recycled the lovely mooncake box and store his toys in it. I love it that their box is deep and not the usual flat ones. This way, Ethan gets to keep all those tiny toys that has been lying around the house in it… 

mooncake breakfast

Ethan and I are happily having mooncakes for breakfast these couple of days and if this continues I believe we will both look like a moon by month end :P

Price of Mooncakes at Dorsett Grand Subang ranges from RM15.00++ to RM20.00++. For a special Dorsett treat, guest that purchase 10 boxes (4 pieces of mooncakes per box) and above in a single receipt will receive a complimentary Dining Voucher of Sunday Dim Sum Brunch for 2 persons at The Emperor Restaurant.

    I also like the traditional red bean and lotus paste mooncakes. And durian mooncakes of course! Don’t really like the fancy new flavours!

    Haha! Ethan so greedy! Can’t blame him cos I would do the same too! I could eat one whole mooncake without cutting it into 8 pieces last time. But to do that now is heart breaking especially when one moon cake can costs as much as RM15. I rather spend it on some other food! LOL!

    I’m no fan of moon cake but will for the traditional ones. I like the packaging. When one is young, every food will taste good. Isnt it so? Happy Mid-Autumn Festival.

    the mooncake festival or mid-autumn festival is about a month away, and yeah, already been seeing mooncakes selling like a month ago.. well, i am actually more interested to discover different kinds of “creative” mooncake than to eat them, hahaha.. all the restaurants or bakeries sure will come out with a few new flavor every year, and that’s what i find very intriguing (to know the combination but not really to buy and try)~~ :D
