New World Makati Hotel invites guests to share in the celebration of the annual Dragon Boat Festival – falling on June 14 this year – with its well-loved machang (sticky rice dumplings), also called “zongzi,” from Jasmine.
Jasmine’s machang is available in two flavors: traditional with pork, yellow bean, salted egg, mushroom and glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf; and red bean with glutinous rice also wrapped in lotus leaf.
An option for single or double layered filling is also offered.
Packaged in dim sum basket-inspired boxes with gold foil logo stamping, these flavorful treats are best enjoyed with oolong tea or any hot tea of choice.
Machang is traditionally eaten during the Duanwu Festival (Doubler Fifth Festival) which falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese lunar calendar – commonly known as the Dragon Boat Festival. The festival falls each year in late-May to mid-June in the Western calendar.
Single and double layer machang are priced at P798 and P1,388, respectively.
Pick-up of orders is until June 30, 2021. Deliveries may be made for bulk orders within a 3 km distance.
Bulk orders of 30 or more also get a 20 percent discount while Club Epicure members get 15 percent off.
