Yauatcha, the dim-sum teahouse from London, is celebrating the popular Mid-Autumn Festival of China with the introduction of limited edition moon cakes from September 1st to September 30th, 2016 at their restaurant. Like most Chinese festivals, the Mid-Autumn Festival too has its dedicated delicacy, the moon cake, whose shape symbolises reunion and togetherness in the Chinese culture.
Yauatcha has created a modern interpretation of the classic Chinese moon cake, sweet with a thick, Chinese-style custard and infused with Asian ingredients. The outer filling is pastry decorated with delicate patterns to suit the discerning palate. Available in four unique flavour options such as the Jasmine tea moon cake, Salted caramel and Sesame moon cake, Coconut and mixed nuts moon cake and the zingy Lemon zest moon cake, Yauatcha will serve these delicious desserts alongside the green tea ice cream.
It is traditional to eat moon cakes and give them as gifts throughout the month; and these would be available at the retail counter to take away at INR 300 for a box of three.
