London at Ten Trinity Square

This September, Mei Ume at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square celebrates Mid-Autumn Festival with the launch of its festive menu and intricately crafted mooncakes. One of the most important dates in the Chinese calendar, the festival celebrates the harvest moon, with families and communities gathering for celebrations of feasting and toasting, culminating in the final day of the festival on September 21, 2021.

In honour of this auspicious festival, Head Chef Tony Truong has crafted a special menu of Chinese dishes traditionally eaten during the festival to symbolise gratitude and togetherness. The menu includes a selection of starters, a dim sum platter with har gau, siu mai, Shanghai dumplings and black truffle vegetarian dim sum, as well as the restaurant's signature Peking duck. Completing the menu is a selection of main courses such as lobster with ginger and spring onions; soy and ginger steamed seabass; and golden fried corn-fed chicken.

Taking centre stage are the emblems of the festival, mooncakes, which are traditionally gifted between friends and families on the eve of the harvest moon. From September 7 to 21, 2021, Mei Ume’s mooncakes will also be available to purchase in a beautifully decorated East-meets-West style box. Tony has crafted four different iterations of the delicate pastries, both traditional and snow-skinned (mochi), with flavours including red bean paste and pine nuts; white lotus with salted egg; matcha; and a new signature flavour for this year, rose jam.

“Mid-Autumn Festival is always one of my favourite times of the year at Mei Ume. Back home, it’s a joyful time when my family and friends gather for celebrations and to exchange mooncakes. We do the same here at Mei Ume and I look forward to sharing a mooncake with our guests,” says Tony.

The Mid-Autumn Festival menu will be available at Mei Ume from September 7 to 21, 2021 for GBP 68 per person (2-person minimum). To book a table click here or call +44(0)203 297 3799
