Till 30 September, inveterate Hong Kong islanders can get their mitts on classic Peninsula delicacies — all from the convenient location on the atrium of Hysan Place.
With this year’s Mid-Autumn celebrations on the horizon, it’s high time to start thinking about family meals, a well-earned staycation and, of course, mooncakes. Along with a range of other eminently giftable delicacies, The Peninsula Boutique will be offering its signature miniature egg custard version at a pop-up at Hysan Place Atrium area — available now until the end of September.
Located at the popular Causeway Bay mall’s ground-floor atrium, the new boutique centres on an enormous Moon Gate — a common element in traditional Chinese dwellings, now reimagined for the Instagram generation. Snap a photo here and receive two pieces of The Peninsula Boutique’s popular Heritage chocolates.
In addition to cheery photography spots, complete with replica moon and lotus flower arrangements, the pop-up will function as a collection point for recyclables. This year, as part of its ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, The Peninsula has partnered with Mil Mill — Hong Kong’s first dedicated paper pulp mill. The company will work closely with Hong Kong’s iconic grande dame to up-cycle customers’ used mooncake boxes into paper towels. For every box returned at the pop-up, guests will also receive complimentary chocolates for their efforts.
In addition, for every box of mooncakes sold, The Peninsula Boutique will donate a percentage of the proceeds from mooncake sales to Feeding Hong Kong — in support of the charity’s work to minimise food wastage and feed over a million underprivileged Hongkongers in the community. After snapping a selfie and picking up a box (or three) of egg custard mooncakes, guests are encouraged to stick around and check out the pop-up’s ‘Love of the Community’ displays: Each details the various ongoing charitable initiatives organised by The Peninsula Boutique.
The Peninsula Mid-Autumn pop-up is open daily (18-30 September) from 10am to 7pm. To learn more or place an advance order, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Peninsula boutique online.
