New World Makati Hotel welcomes the Mid-Autumn Festival with Handcrafted Mooncakes from Jasmine Restaurant


As part of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Jasmine at New World Makati Hotel celebrates the auspicious occasion with a delectable assortment of mooncakes perfect for gifts to loved ones and friends. These mooncakes come in four flavors – Red Bean with Double Yolk, Red Lotus with Double Yolk, White Lotus with Double Yolk, and Five Kernel (watermelon seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and peanuts) – encased in gold, yellow, and brown packaging with an embossed gold stamping. These come in a box of two at Php1,488 and a box of four at Php2,488 nett. 

Jasmine is offering a discount of 10% for Club Epicure members and for bulk orders of 50 boxes or more. Pick-up of orders is until September 30, 2021.

Mooncakes represent not only a cultural but a historical significance for the Chinese, particularly the country’s victory over the Mongols. After many attempts to invade China, the Mongols succeeded in the 13th Century, with Kublai Khan establishing the Yuan dynasty. A rebel leader’s confidant, Liu Bowen, suggested a rebellion coincide with the Mid-Autumn Festival and he secured permission for mooncakes to be distributed to each of the Chinese residents as a blessing to the longevity of the Mongol emperor. Within each cake was a piece of paper saying “kill the Mongols on the 15th day of the eighth month.” As Mongols didn’t eat mooncakes, their plan succeeded and the Mongols were overthrown.
