To celebrate the Moon Festival on 27 September 2015, Royal China is now offering diners the chance to purchase a box of traditional Mooncakes. The indulgent Chinese treats are made in-house by Royal China’s expert pastry chefs and contain up to 1200 calories each.
This year’s varieties include a box of eight Mini egg yolk custard Mooncakes for £23.80 or a box of four large traditional flavour Mooncakes are available in Double salted duck egg yolk and Lotus leaf paste for £28.50. Last year Royal China sold more than 1,000 Mooncakes.
The Moon Festival is a celebration for lunar worship during which Mooncakes are considered a delicacy. Mooncakes are round pastries with a thick filling, usually made from red bean or lotus seed paste and are eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea.
