The Mid-Autumn Festival is an important festival in Chinese culture. Also called the Mooncake Festival or the Lantern Festival, it is also celebrated in a few other East Asian countries, where it is known as Chuseok in Korea and Tsukimi in Japan. The festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese Lunar calendar, when the moon is believed to be at its fullest and brightest. Like the Lunar New Year and Winters Solstice, it is a time of reunion for families, where they gather to watch the moon. The moon’s round shape also symbolizes unity and togetherness, as no matter how far apart loved ones are from each other, they can gaze upon the same moon in the night sky.
Mooncakes are an integral part of the Mid-Autumn Festival. In Malaysia, malls are often chock full of stalls stacked high with mooncake boxes in the days leading up to the festival. Traditional flavours like lotus paste, red bean and black sesame are always popular, but there are also modern creations like tiramisu, chocolate, durian and many more.
Drawing inspiration from these stories, Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s mooncake series, “Royal Midnight”, appreciates the fine art of simplicity and serves as a tribute to the beauty of traditions. Featuring a lunar medallion and silver embroidered clouds on a navy blue sheen fabric, the luxurious mooncake box doubles as a jewellery case.
The box is so pretty – it’s a work of art on its own!
Received a box from Hilton KL for work and shared it with colleagues. Brought home the traditional Baked White Lotus Paste. Its eerything a good mooncake should be – not too sweet or greasy, and definitely not cloying. But as with everything, eat in moderation – a baked mooncake can contain as much as 800 calories!
Chynna Special 2020
This year’s signature, the Bulgarian Blush (RM38 nett), comprises custard cream cheese, Bulgarian Rose petal Jam and pine nuts, enclosed in a delicate baby pink snow skin.

Looking to entertain business clients, or just want a quick (but five-star!) lunch on the go?
Hilton Kuala Lumpur‘s modern European brasserie, Graze, is currently offering a 45-minute, 3-course express set with the busy work crowd in mind. Drawing emphasis on fresh and seasonal produce, the six concise menus comprises a variety of appetisers, mains and desserts to finish. Indulge in classics like Caesar Salad, Creamy Mushroom Soup, Graze Steak Sandwich, Napolitan Beef Ragout, Traditional Crème Brule, Caramel Banana Brownie and more. Available from 1 July – 31 August 2020 and for lunch only, the set meal is priced at RM95 nettper person inclusive of soft drink, juice or coffee and tea.
Take a seat by the window and enjoy panoramic views of the lush greenery surrounding the KL city centre. Bright and flooded with natural light, the restaurant is nevertheless cosy and warm, immediately setting you at ease as you take a break from the day’s hectic schedule.
To kick things off while waiting for our appetisers to arrive: complimentary bread with olive oil.
There were two sets to choose from for the day; G went for Set A, comprising a gazpacho soup starter, a steak sandwich as the main course, finishing off with a dessert of wild berries tart. I opted for Set B, which included a Salmon Gravlax salad, Napolitan Beef Ragout, and Warm Brioche bread and butter pudding.
Beautifully plated Gazpacho with Pulled Flower Crab, Avocado Mousse, Cucumber and Tomato, Virgin Olive Oil
This popular cold soup with Andalusian origins is made of raw blended vegetables. The gazpacho on its own has a mild, refreshing taste, but is elevated when you combine all of the ingredients together – the creaminess of the avocado, the crunch of cucumber, the natural sweetness of the snow crab and tomatoes make for a wonderful combination.
Graze Steak Sandwich with Caramelised Onions, Tomato Relish, Rocket Salad
This one’s for the meat lovers. Served in generous portions and a side of thin-cut fries, the meat is thick, juicy and well-seasoned, slathered in a sweet relish of tomato and caramelised onions and complemented by the peppery, nutty flavour of rocket salad. Bringing everything together are two buns, which are soft to the bite but slightly crispy on the outside.
Wild Berries Tart and Mascarpone Chantilly is beautifully presented; the slight tartness of the berries balancing well with the sweet mascarpone chantilly for a refreshing end to the meal.
The Salmon Gravlax Garden Green Salad, Dill Creme Fraiche, Volkorn Bread is a wonderful blend of textures and flavours, featuring salmon rosettes on a bed of fresh greens. The Volkorn bread – A German recipe – contains healthy grains, and also gives the dish an added crunch, while the creamy dill creme fraiche binds all the different ingredients together in harmony.
My personal favourite is the Napolitan Beef Ragout – the price for the express lunch is worth it just for this! Generous portions aside, everything is cooked to perfection, from the firm but supple texture of the pasta to the mouthwatering flavours of the beef ragout, which is savoury with a delicious natural sweetness. It is obvious the meat has undergone a long and laborious cooking process, as the meat is so tender it literally melts in your mouth. Top it off with shredded cheese, and you’ll be guaranteed to leave the restaurant with a satisfied smile.
The pasta’s hollow shape makes it ideal for soaking up the sauces.
There’s always space for dessert, and the Warm Brioche Bread & Butter Pudding with Vanilla Ice Creamrounds off the meal on a high note. The pudding is actually quite light, and the mild sweetness of the vanilla lets you end the meal on a satisfying note.
