Visit Dai Pai Dong for its Mooncake Festival, to sample this delicious and intriguing taste of pastry and history. Mooncakes will be part of the a la carte menu from 1st to 21st September, priced at AED68 for three pieces.
It is said that the custom of eating mooncakes in the Mid-Autumn Festival began in the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907 AD). The Tang Emperor Li Shimin ordered a general called Li Jing to lead the troops and conquer the Turks. On the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, Li Jing returned triumphantly. A trader from Tibet offered some round cakes to Li Shimin to congratulate him on the victory. Li Shimin was very happy to receive this gift and people began feasting on the round cakes on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month to commemorate the victory. The name was changed into ‘Mooncake’ during the reign of a later Tang emperor as they were also used in a Chinese custom of worshiping the moon. The Mid-Autumn moon is round, and mooncakes are fragrant and sweet. During the festival, families sit together and eat mooncakes and fruits, and this custom is now a symbol of family reunion.
