In celebration of this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival on September 24 – the second grandest festival in China, after the Chinese New Year – the city’s only Hunan restaurant, Sumiao Hunan Kitchen, will be bringing the beloved, family tradition to Kendall Square with live music and mooncakes, the characteristic festival food.
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 serving these symbols of lunar appreciation by the pair for $15 from September 21 to September 24 (limited quanities), and will host one of the region’s most traditional Chinese musical talents for a live performance in the dining room on September 24 from 7pm-10pm.
