HANOI, Vietnam (July 24, 2023) — Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi has introduced six distinctive mooncake flavors ahead of Mid-Autumn Festival, with special gift boxes inspired by the new allure of the hotel’s century-old Metropole Wing.
The preservative-free, hand-baked mooncakes are made using authentic recipes infused with the Metropole’s gourmet touch. This year’s decorative mooncake boxes pay homage to the “Mémoire du Metropole” (literally the “Memory of Metropole”), as the hotel prepares to relaunch its historic Metropole Wing in early November following an inspired refurbishment.
Drawing inspiration from exquisite 18th-century toile de jouy printed fabrics, the boxes showcase enchanting scenes of old Hanoi illustrated in monochromatic hues. Each brushstroke breathes life into the fabric, creating a tableau that celebrates the city’s rich heritage. Adorned with lavish, gold-foiled accents, the boxes add a touch of opulence and grandeur, embodying the spirit of celebration and abundance.
This year’s mooncakes, crafted by Metropole Hanoi’s culinary team, come in six unique flavors: Traditional Mix; Black Sesame & Sunflower Seeds; Orange and Grand-Marnier; Green Bean, Apricot & Salted Egg; Vietnamese Coffee & Mixed nuts; and Mango, Passionfruit & Vanilla.
The mooncakes are available in four elegant box options: a four-piece box (each piece is 200g) is priced at VND 2,660,000 and a six-piece box (each piece is 100g) is priced at VND 2,800,000. A six-piece VIP box (each piece is 100g) with a bottle of Château Roc de Candale, Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2015 is priced at VND 6,600,000.
