Burlington Arcade have collaborated with Haidilao, the largest Chinese restaurant group to celebrate this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. This collaboration is remarkable bringing together this cross-border partnership. The luxury and exquisiteness are in the detail, from the selection of moon cakes, premium fresh ingredients, to the high-quality materials of the gift box and limited-edition art illustration.
Haidilao consistently upholds high-quality standards by using natural ingredients, avoiding the use of preservatives and pigments, and meticulously producing delectable, luscious, and healthy mooncakes. The collection this year contains the beloved custard flavour, delicious chocolate flavour and nutritious purple potato flavour, that are ideal for all ages. Each box incorporates 6 pieces of luxury handmade mooncakes. Burlington Arcade, the historic landmark, and luxury retail destination renowned for Vintage Watches, Jewellery and Accessories located in the heart of Mayfair London, uses its rosette symbol which can be found in the arches of the Arcade for the shape of the mooncake, allowing the romantic ambiance to permeate every mouthful.
In addition to the handmade healthy and delectable mooncakes, the gift box is worth collecting in the light of the fact that there is a thriving cultural artwork of London on it. The artwork on the packaging comes from the incredible collaboration of Burlington Arcade and British oil painter Kit Lintin this year, which comprises the interior and surroundings of Burlington Arcade with London characteristics.

It is a well-known internationally listed hotpot restaurant brand that primarily operates Sichuan hotpot and incorporates hotpot features from all over the world after more than 20 years of development.
