In celebration of this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival – the second grandest festival in China, after the Chinese New Year – Boston’s only Hunan restaurant, Sumiao Hunan Kitchen, will be bringing the beloved, family tradition to Kendall Square with live music and a social media giveaway for moon cakes, the characteristic festival food, on Wednesday, October 4.
Mooncakes, which are little known treats here in the United States, are round pastries that represent a full moon and symbolize the reunion of family. They are gifted between Hunanese friends and family while celebrating the festival, which occurs on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar.
In honor of the holiday, Sumiao Hunan Kitchen will be gifting its new friends with these symbols of lunar appreciation in an interactive way. Those who visit Sumiao Hunan Kitchen on October 4, post a photo from their visit on social media and show it to their server, will receive a complimentary mooncake for dessert.
