Yauatcha, the Chinese dim sum teahouse located in Soho and the City, unveil this year’s mooncakes marking the beginning of the Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the most important festivals in the Chinese calendar. A significant part of festivities, people give mooncakes as presents to loved ones during this time, symbolising the full moon at its brightest.
Packaged in pale pink pearlised boxes designed and created especially for the occasion, Yauatcha’s modern take on these traditional pastries include white snowskin mooncakes filled with sweet pandan and a salted egg custard, paying homage to traditional Chinese mooncakes with a symbolic golden centre. Yauatcha is also offering the signature baked mooncake filled with a Cantonese style custard, perfect for gifting to celebrate the beginning of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The mooncakes are available to buy singularly, or in boxes of six and twelve, and will be available to purchase at Yauatcha Soho and City, or delivered nationwide via Yauatcha.com for the very first time.
For the ultimate Mid-Autumn Festival celebration, guests can dine in at Yauatcha City or Yauatcha Soho and enjoy dim sum platters with Seafood black truffle dumplings and Scallop shui mai as well as Cantonese classics of Stir-fry rib eye beef in black bean sauce, Pan-fried silver cod and Peking duck bao, followed by mooncakes for dessert.
Designed to highlight the restaurant’s Chinese heritage, Yauatcha Soho and City offer a relaxed teahouse atmosphere with beautiful interiors where guests can enjoy outstanding service and food whilst adhering to government safety guidelines.
Available from Monday 7th September until Sunday 4th October, the Yauatcha mooncakes will be priced at £5 per mooncake, boxes of 6 £28 and 12 £52 in the restaurants and online through the link here.
