Mid-Autumn festive celebration at Takashimaya
The much-awaited Takashimaya Mid-Autumn Festive Celebration is set to paint the town aglow from Aug 24 to Sep 29, 2023. This annual extravaganza, deeply cherished by many, resonates with the essence of family reunion and marks the radiant climax of the autumn rice harvest.
Stepping into Takashimaya, visitors are greeted by a galaxy of over 50 premium brands, ranging from prestigious hotels to esteemed names from Hong Kong. This year’s collection promises to make the Mid-Autumn Festival a unique affair, offering an assortment of flavours and packaging that cater to diverse preferences.
Tradition meets innovation as both sweet and savoury mooncakes grace the scene. While the classic lotus paste mooncakes maintain their charm, the recent trend of savoury mooncakes has captured the hearts of the locals. Notably, newcomers like SunnyHills and Bread & Butter are making their debut, amplifying the excitement.
For devotees of decadent chocolate, Janice Wong’s signature chocolate mooncakes are bound to enchant. Themed “Childhood Memories,” these chocolate delights feature nostalgic flavours like Peanut Butter Snickers and Salted Pecan Dark Chocolate, evoking a sense of culinary nostalgia.
The festival also pays homage to tradition with contemporary twists. Mooncakes like Kuromitsu Sea Salt and Kinako Macadamia introduce modern profiles to familiar tastes. SunnyHills brings a ray of innovation with their pineapple-based mooncakes, a healthier alternative that doesn’t compromise on flavour.
Takashimaya’s celebration extends beyond mooncakes. Exclusive products, such as Pryce Tea’s floral infusions and FORBIDDEN’s durian-infused snowskin creations, showcase the festival’s essence of opulence and variety.
A blend of culture and taste, the Mid-Autumn Festive Celebration at Takashimaya invites all to partake in its radiant glory. This year’s event celebrates 30 years of excellence, offering not just mooncakes, but a treasure trove of experiences. As the moon graces the skies, don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in this gastronomic spectacle and indulge in the joy of sharing exquisite delights with loved ones. Remember, it’s not just a festival; it’s a luminous memory waiting to be cherished.
