Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has introduced six new mooncake flavors ahead of Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 with a French touch to several of them.
The French hints are a nod to the recent reopening of the hotel’s celebrated French fine dining restaurant Le Beaulieu following an extensive seven-month refurbishment.
The preservative-free, hand-baked mooncakes are produced using authentic recipes, infused with the Metropole’s gourmet touch, and inspired by authentic Parisian savoir-faire and the classical and the modern at Le Beaulieu. A symbol of reunion and happiness, Metropole Hanoi’s legendary mooncakes also pay homage to the storied hotel’s 120-year history.
Crafted by Metropole Hanoi’s culinary team, this year’s mooncakes come in six unique flavors: Traditional Mix; Black Sesame and Coconut; Lotus and Mixed Dried Fruit; Green Bean, Apricot and Salted Egg; Blueberry and Roasted Almond; and Candied Orange and Grand-Marnier.
The mooncakes are available in four elegant box options this year: a four-piece box (each piece is 250g) or six-piece box (each piece is 100g), both priced at VND 2,150,000 net. A six-piece VIP box (each piece is 100g) with a bottle of F. Thienpont Bordeaux Causse Rouge 2016 is priced at VND 4,880,000 net. And a six-piece VIP lacquer box (each piece is 100g) with Emperor lotus tea and Earl Grey Yin Zhen tea is priced at VND 6,480,000 net.
