MERDEKA SPECIAL for Mooncake Sparkles @ CONCORDE HOTEL KUALA LUMPUR

This year Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur is selling their mooncakes with some sparkly globes. Unlike most conventional packaging, this year’s exclusive crackle glass light globes (available in two sizes, 9″ and 5″) are indeed unique and make lovely gifts.

These pretty art glass pieces are handmade, using the glass-blowing and crackling technique. They come in 3 colours: Sparkling Gold, Sparkling Blue and Sparkling Pink.

Do check out the new flavours for 2019 – lotus paste with loh hon kuo, lotus paste with chestnuts and custard & white lotus black sesame. I like them as they are light and not too sweet, easy on the palate.

Concorde Kuala Lumpur’s mooncakes are on sale at the hotel lobby as well as at Mid Valley Megamall (South Court, Ground Floor) until 13 September 2019.

Now, if you are buying mooncakes from the hotel itself and have some time, why not have a meal at Xin Chinese Restaurant and try out some new dishes created by Chef Ricky Wong. His forte lies in meat as can be seen by the porky dishes here… (prices indicated are for Small/Medium/Large portions)

Baked Spare Ribs with Crispy Sliced Ginger (RM40/RM60/RM80) – those crispy slices of caramelized Bentong ginger are so addictive and complement the spare ribs well.

Braised Pork Belly with Fermented Beancurd Sauce (RM58) – These thick slices of almost-symmetrically layered pork belly have gone through some intricate processes resulting in chopsticks-tender meat. Pan-fried, boiled and steamed with star anise, mandarin peel, liquorice and the chef’s special sauce have resulted in this sublime dish.

Sweet Sour Pork in Ice Bowl (RM40/RM60/RM80) – the pork texture is finer than usual and the ice keeps the meat succulent. Unlike the regular sweet & sour pork, this version is served sans sauce – so if you are looking for some gravy, there’s not much.

Steamed Soon Hock in Nyonya Sauce (RM30/100g). The nyonya sauce is very fragrant and I think it kinda overwhelms the soon hock fish. Personally, I feel fresh soon hock doesn’t need too much embellishment that mars its natural sweetness.

For lighter bites, check out Chef Ricky’s Spinach Beancurd and Stir-fried Hong Kong Kailan in 2 styles.

Spinach Beancurd with Special Sauce (RM35/RM50/RM70)

Stir-fried HK Kailan in 2 Styles (RM35/RM50/RM70)
