Taiwanese Tarts At Moon Of Taj...

Moon of Taj Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Moon Of Taj is an elegant Taiwanese Sweets outlet situated in Lajpat Nagar. I visited the outlet this week and was introduced to the concept of Taiwan in India courtesy Master Chef Hugo Wang, who himself hails from Taiwan and has taken the onus upon himself to present Taiwanese Sweets with an Indian Heart, here in Delhi.

Moon Of Taj prepares authentic Taiwanese delicacies - Fruit Tart and Nougat, both of which are a changeover from routine Indian sweets, being presented elegantly and being smooth on the palate.

Infusion of fine-quality ingredients like butter, spices and hand-picked dry fruits makes these confectionaries balance health and taste. More than anything, quality of the sweets being presented to the Indian audience and the fact that hygiene is maintained is of utmost importance to Hugo, adhering to Taiwanese ethics and Indian FSSAI regulations. 

The vibe at Moon of Taj is calming, to say the least, and Hugo's hospitality is a class apart with the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony being emulated at Moon Of Taj in an aesthetic partition made at the entrance of Moon of Taj itself.

Here at Moon Of Taj, Fruit Tarts are made using an assortment of Indian pineapples, other fruits, and Californian almonds. Fruit Tarts date back to times as ancient as 2nd Century and are considered auspicious in Taiwanese ceremonies hence making these an ideal gifting option here in India as it would be a welcome change from the monotony that giving and receiving gifts faces here in our country.

Essentially, these fruit tarts and nougat are meant to be consumed with Green Tea, a variety of which was presented at Moon of Taj and was not at all bitter, refreshing nonetheless.

These fruit tarts are available in the following four flavors catering to the Indian palate:

  • Mint Mango 
  • Latte Butter 
  • Cheese Pineapple 
  • Chocolate Orange 

A reason that further adds to their nifty appeal is the fact that they come in per piece packaging, thus they can be purchased loose or in a packaging of boxes having a certain number of pieces with pricing depending on the weight.

The elegance of packaging makes these fruit tarts come across as a sophisticated gifting option for sure.

Apart from fruit tarts, Moon Of Taj also manufactures Nougat that dates back to the 10th Century as an Arabian delicacy. Soft and tender on the inside and chewy and crunchy on the outside is how I liked this one. Nougats at Moon Of Taj are available in Chocolate and Vanilla flavors. These nougats too come in per piece packaging and are generally available in a box of twenty priced economically. 

Moon Of Taj is Chef Hugo's attempt at presenting East Asian delicacies that try to blend in the Indian culture and appeal to the Indian audience. That is why Moon Of Taj's tagline fits it best - Taiwan Sweets 💗 Indian Heart. :)
