As you walk thru the main entrance, you will be greeted with friendly staff then follow by a huge open concept kitchen that the chefs are happily greeting along too.

MO (3)

Then you will reach this porch huge dining area that is well attended with  many of the waiter. It is a newly refurbish restaurant.

MO (4)

If you are in a group or need some private space, can request for their close door dining area.

As for this round, we are invited along to sample their mooncake creation for this year  2012

MO (5)

As I see the display that prepared for us, I just cant wait to sample any of those. It just look appetizing as mooncake is a once a year celebration and I always ended up eating alot.

MO (6)

The molding of Mandarin Oriental logo is so nice on the traditional mooncake.

MO (10)

If I got a chance to skip nutty mooncake I would just skip it, as I just do not prefer these nutty type, but the rest were enjoying every bite of this as they said its just lovely. Rich in ingredient and fragrant.

MO (11)

You may say I am classic yet I still prefer the classic Lotus paste with single yolk. Lotus paste is smooth, and I just love the skin texture as it  is a bit like smooth sand, and aromatic skin. Perfect!

Besides this, they do offer other classic mooncake too such as  white lotus paste, lotus paste with single yolk, lotus paste with double yolk, red bean and lotus paste with single yolk and diced chicken ham with almond.

pandan flavour mooncake & Durian mooncake – Back: Blueberries and grated coconut

For Durian snowskin, this is by far one of the best I have come across as they use D24 to make it along and it taste exactly like eating durian yet in chill version. – Recommended!

Jeng Jeng Jeng, this is by far the section that I am staring at the whole night. For the first time I come accross Chocolate mooncake!

MO (12)

Available in 4 different flavour and 4 if it looks very tempting and mouth watering.

MO (13)

Dark chocolate with star anise and red bean ganache

MO (14)

White chocolate with orange ganache and cream

Milk chocolate with peanut butter crunch If you give me 4 pieces of this, I would be very happy, as among the other 3 I prefer this more. I guess I am bias one side as I just love anything with peanut butter. Not too milky chocolate and the peanut butter just pair well. It just give you the feeling like you are eating Reese peanut chocolate.

MO (15)

Dark chocolate with salted caramel ganache

MO (17)

I just love double boil soup. As this was place infront of me, I can just smell the sweet scent of soup occupying the air as I quickly capture the picture and get a soup of it. It just taste awesome sweet as like how the smell occupying that instant moment. Imagine how good the soup would be that is filled with huge scallop and abalone that is juicy and chewy. It is something worth spending on this Double-boiled Abalone Soup with seasonal dried deluxe seafood and baby cabbage at RM 188.

MO (18)

Jasmine Tealeaf Smoked Chicken, chicken meat is soft and if flavourful with tea leaf flavour. Slight moist with the sauce that pair along and eat along with the garlic just make the whole taste more outstanding. @ RM38

MO (19)

Another eye opener as Crispy egg noodles with Assorted Seafood and Vegetables @ RM 48. Crab is succulent sweet with huge scallop and noodle been deep fried that store along with gravy.

MO (20)

something which might look simple to cook along yet Special seafood Fried Rice being cook evenly fragrant that filled with wok hei that makes every one enjoy every bite of it.  RM36

MO (21)

Durian pancake @ RM38 – for 3 pieces

MO (22)

One of the best pancake you can get around the area, as I gulp this whole big piece in one bite and let the aroma burst into my mouth. Strong taste of durian detected with a good quality durian being included as the meat, wrap along with thin fried egg slice then chilled along. Taste awesome!

    A roast peking duck that just roasted pipping hot from the oven with the skin so shinning and when I was capturing this, I was swallowing my saliva with its aromatic smell that hard to resist.

    When this lady cut on the duck skin, you can just hear the cracking sound of it, it means so fresh   and I just wish that I could steal one slice to put into my mouth first.
