Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur: Celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with Ten Delectable Mooncakes!

Let me share with you my mooncake indulgence…

This Mid-Autumn Festival, Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is proud to present Tai Zi Heen’s signature mooncakes specially prepared by the culinary team.

With ten great choices from Baked range to Mini Snow Skin range, there is something for everyone from the young to the elder. To indulge or not?

Tai Zi Heen’s baked mooncakes series showed consistent thin skin mooncakes with a beautiful golden hue wrapped around luscious traditional and modern filings. These five flavors have a nice balance of sweetness and each bite was tender and delicious.

Traditionalist can vouched for Hong Kong White Lotus Paste with Single Egg Yolk (RM23+ per piece / RM92+ per box). Simplicity at its best, I could taste quality lotus paste in these delectable treats!

Pandan with Single Egg Yolk and Melon Seeds (RM23+ per piece / RM92+ per box) was mediocre as I prefer the original taste of lotus paste.

Tiramisu with Chocolate Dipped Espresso Beans (RM22+ per piece / RM88+ per box) was created for tiramisu lovers. The classic combination of chocolate and coffee was creatively incorporated into the mooncake paste and the baked skin enhances the flavors very well. Yum…

This is my first time savoring Shredded Coconut Paste with Sesame Pearls (RM20+ per piece / RM80+ per box). The aroma is lovely with the coconut and sesame fragrance but the texture is a bit coarse for me. Others didn’t seem to mind the texture; hence I am assuming I am being too picky! J

Five Nuts, Rum and Raisin (RM25+ per piece / RM98+ per box) is for nut lovers. Filled with variety of nuts, the baked mooncake has a slight savory flavor against a slight sweetness. This would certainly make my mom happy…

The five Snow Skin flavors are truly out-of-the-ordinary with its modern filings ranging from healthy to alcohol. Being an ardent fan of snow skin, the ones here are lovely with its creamy thin skin and melt-in-the-mouth texture.

The mini snow skin mooncakes are simply adorable at sight!

Holy moly… Durian fillings? Mini Snow Skin with Durian Custard (RM23+ per piece / RM92+ per box) is designed specifically for the king of fruit fans! Not only do the chef uses top quality durians, the flavors are strong and will hit your tastebud with great impact of the durian flesh. Rest assured, you can smell this mooncake a mile away once its cut open. My foodie gang vouched that this is one of the best mooncakes they have eaten this year!

The durian mooncake makes the lovely Yvonne glee with delight because she managed to snatch the last piece!

Mini Snow Skin Mooncakes with Bittersweet Chocolate and Whiskey (RM18+ per piece / RM72+ per box) is my favorite that night. Seriously, chocolate and whiskey is a killer combination! Deep, dark and chocolaty, these melt-in-your-mouth babies are to-die-for in my opinion. Satisfaction is pure bliss!!

Mini Snow Skin Mooncake with Mango Cheesecake (RM18+ per piece / RM72+ per box) is quite interesting as it makes me fill like eating a mango cheesecake. Love the modern twist to this mooncake… J

I do adore the Mini Snow Skin with Black Sesame Paste and Egg Yolk (RM18+ per piece / RM72+ per box)… simply because I love the aroma and taste black sesame. Coupled with egg yolk, this is a rich and creamy mooncake.

Health conscious fans will be glad to savor Mini Chinese Wolfberry Snow Skin with Red Date Paste (RM18+ per piece / RM72+ per box). Although I cannot really taste the wolfberry, the red date paste was superb. A lovely flavor to give to the elderly!

Tai Zi Heen’s gorgeous red mooncake packaging makes such an elegant impact with four individual mooncake boxes all encased in a round box. Love it for its eye-catching color!

The chef behind these gorgoeous mooncakes, Chef Chong LF. Chef Chong persisted on using only quality ingredients while injecting creativity into his mooncakes!
