The Mid-Autumn Festival is less than a month away and mooncakes are on sale everywhere now! So where do you get your mooncakes? I mean, there are just so many to choose from. At the malls, there are so many kiosks set up to sell these delicacies – so which is your favourite? Recently I tried some of the mooncakes at Dynasty Restaurant at the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel and they do have a pretty good selection.
The pork-free Dynasty Restaurant has started selling its mooncakes since 29 August 2017 and will be available till 4 October 2017. The good old traditional favourites made with lotus paste and salted egg yolks are listed, together with redbean paste and the popular assorted nuts. For the lotus paste option, you can also have the low-sugar white lotus paste or the pandan-infused variety. New flavours for the baked mooncakes are the Red Pitaya Lotus Paste with Mango (very light & refreshing!).

Dynasty’s mooncakes are on sale at the hotel as well as at Mid Valley Megamall until 4 October 2017.

Besides checking out their mooncakes, we also couldn’t resist Executive Sous Chef Kok Chee Kin’s Signature Peking Duck which is currently priced at RM60.60 nett per bird. This promotion ends by 30 September 2017 and it’s a fowl worth going for. The golden crispy skin was glossy and tasty thanks to the meticulous roasting process which took almost an hour to slowly infuse the smoky aroma into the meat.
The Signature Peking Duck is carved at table side. The sliced skin is served with house-made pancake together with scallions, cucumber, carrots plum sauce. The meat is then cooked according to the diner’s choice. We had ours stir-fried with ginger and spring onions.
Meat from the Peking Duck, stir-fried with ginger and spring onions – really good!
Monggolian Lamb Chops – deep-fried tasty chops with a creamy tangy sauce bursting with bold flavours – a definite best-seller at the restaurant
Dynasty’s Special Fried Rice – fragrant eggy fried rice served on a pool of gravy with dried scallops and mixed vegetables… something different from the usual fried rice!
