Family gathering for a taste of traditional China
Mooncake is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival and considered a delicacy. Mooncakes are offered to friends, family or clients while celebrating the festival. Mooncakes are usually eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea.

The festival is linked to the mythical Moon Goddess of Immortality. According to legend the Chinese Emperor should offer sacrifices to the sun in spring and the moon in autumn.

The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, and is the second grandest festival after the Spring Festival in China. The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching. Its name comes from the fact that it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season when the moon is at its roundest and brightest.

Set to impress


The team behind the cult Hutong restaurants will be celebrating China's annual Mid-Autumn Festival, (aka the Mooncake Festival). Man Tong Kitchen's head chef Tony Chen has designed two special menus for the occasion, which celebrate traditional Chinese flavours and the finest produce. They will be available from 21 September to 27 September.

Hutong Group food and beverage director Eric Chew said: "Mid-Autumn Festival is all about coming together with family and friends, which is why Man Tong Kitchen has developed banquets for 10 people. It's a chance to gather your loved ones and get a taste of what traditional China is all about."

If you have never experienced fine dining at the Man Tong Kitchen this would be a perfect time to start. I have had the pleasure of dining with them many times and the food and service is impeccable.
