Mid-Autumn Festival is right around the corner and we're totally getting into the festive mood with these supreme selections of mooncake, promising first-rate tastes and exquisite packagings.

From Hilton's collaboration with Christy Ng to Crème De La Crème's ice-cream mooncakes and Inside Scoop's 'Supermoon', here we list down five mooncake gift boxes to relish in this coming 2019 Mid-Autumn Festival.

1. HILTON KUALA LUMPUR X CHRISTY NG

In collaboration with local designer Christy Ng, Hilton KL presents Tropical Allure, which Malaysia's national flower Hibiscus becomes the protagonist of the design, truly capturing the flamboyant spirit of festival with its vivid palette.

Have a try of this year's Chynna Rose – handcrafted snow skin mooncake fill with ginseng infused lotus paste, hibiscus jam and crushed almond.

 

2. LE MÉRIDIEN KUALA LUMPUR

Housed in a humble wooden box, Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur celebrates this year Mid-Autumn Festival with our all-time favourite flavours and its new edit of snow-skin delights.

Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur introduces illy Coffee Snow Skin Mooncake and illy Coffee Snow Skin Mooncake with Pumpkin Seeds, where notes of coffee beans and lotus paste perfectly fused for your delight.

 

3. NOBU KUALA LUMPUR

This 2019, Nobu's mooncake gift box is returned with both sweet and savoury options, be it a melt-in-your-mouth Sakura Mochi Mooncake or a classical Shanghai Black Sesame with Wasabi Yolk.

From matcha, hojicha, pandan to miso and wasabi, what you can expect from Nobu's prestigious recipe will be a distinct translation of mooncake crafted with a Japanese twist on ingredients and presentation.

 

4. INSIDE SCOOP

This year, the dessert veteran's mooncake gift box is back with its signature fillings including the D24 durian and matcha.

The festival's exclusive is highlighted with a rare 'Supermoon'. Made from one of its most loved Pistachio ice cream, charmed with raspberry jelly and crunchy Rocher base, the 7.5-inch Supermoon is definitely a craving!

 

 

5. CRÈME DE LA CRÈME

The new artisanal ice-cream and petits gâteaux establishment in town is joining the line up of mooncake gift box this year with its extremely cute designs of ice-cream mooncakes.

Inspired by Chinese mythology, the mooncakes come in the design of Chang E's elixir, the rabbit, lantern and the moon, filled with a selection of luscious sorbet and ice-cream.
