About Shangri La Mooncake
Exquisite and elegant, Shangri-La and Shang Palace combine to ensure your experience in tasting and enjoying yourself with these lunar holiday delights is unforgettable.
The artists at Cantonese fine dining are led by award winner Chef Mok Kit Keung, who previously helmed Shang Palace in Kowloon Shangri-La in Hong Kong. Chef Mok brings a unique signature mix of traditional techniques with a contemporary twist for all his creations, and mooncakes are no exception.
Shangri-La hotel offers a wide variety of unorthodox and decadent flavours of mooncakes that have only one goal: to amaze your taste buds.
Aside from mooncakes over at Shang Palace, you can also find them at ShopHouse – a pastry shop located in the Tower Wing at Lobby level. In true Shangri-La spirit, they sell a special box of 4 pieces of non-traditional mooncake flavours: Hazelnut Praline, Lemon Cheesecake, Dark Chocolate, and Strawberry And Yuzu.
The Creators Of Your Shang Palace Mooncakes
Shang Palace is a signature dining destination that follows Shangri-La hotels around the globe, and Singapore is no excuse. Chef Mok oversees an experienced team of Chinese chefs and is responsible for all of the hotel’s Chinese food production.
Mooncake being originally a Chinese delight, Chef Mok takes it to heart to get the most out of his delicately chosen ingredients with meticulous devotion to timing and detail.
Having cooked in his rich career for King Mohammed VI of Morocco, the president of Russia, and both the former and the current prime ministers of Singapore, you can rest assured the mooncakes at Shangri-La will permanently vacate your memory.
Mooncakes by nature are split into two groups by their skin – snow and baked skin cakes. At Shangri-La, these groups are separated even more by pairing up extraordinary tastes to accompany the different type of crust and complement it.
There are three different limited edition boxes you can purchase – Shang Palace Mini Snow Skin Eight Treasures, Shang Palace Four Treasures and Shang Palace Mini Eight Treasures.
There is, of course, special edition Chef Mok’s Signature Mini Baked Custard with Bird’s Nest collection – and all of these are presented in handcrafted royal red and champagne gold box.
Packaging And Various Flavours
The Snow Skin ones come in 2 flavours: the sweet and sour Yuzu Bird’s Nest, and the Chocolate Salted Toffee mooncake. The latter consists of 40% cocoa milk chocolate, 66% dark chocolate mixed with salted toffee at its core, all encased in a layer of crisp milk chocolate. These come in a box of 8, splitting it into 4 of each flavour.
The baked skin Shang Palace Mini Eight Treasures also come in 2 flavours, 4 pieces of each per box and you get to enjoy Low Sugar White Lotus Seed Paste with Quarter Yolk, and the famous Salted Taro with Red Bean And Almond mooncakes.
And lastly, we get to the Shang Palace Four Treasures, 4 of baked skin mooncakes – 1 piece of each per box. In it, you can find a Low Sugar White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, one with Single Yolk, one Low Sugar Plain White Lotus Seed Paste, and lastly Mixed Nuts with Chicken Sausage Ham mooncake.
Orders and Deliveries
Although we do recommend trying these mooncakes at the restaurant as they are suited to meld with the drinks, you can also order the gift boxes and pick them up directly at Shang Palace restaurant or Shangri-La reception desk.
It’s possible to place an order via phone, but if you do it online, there are promotions offering you up to 15% discount. Be careful when placing the orders, though – as delivery might be pricey, and it isn’t available throughout the entire holiday season.
The prices at Shangri-La are quite competitive and some even lower than normal which is especially surprising considering the amount of talent and level of quality behind making these treats! Both boxes of Shang Palace Mini Eight Treasures, with Snow Skin and Baked Skin cost S$88.
The Shang Palace Four Treasures box costs $78, while the special edition Chef Mok’s Signature Mini Baked Custard with Bird’s Nest stands at S$118 for a box of 8 pieces. The box over at ShopHouse costs S$38.
