The 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar is a special day for the Chinese. During the night, adults sip tea and children carry lanterns under a full moon. Still, don’t know what’s the special occasion? Here’s another hint – Mooncakes.

Mooncakes have become synonymous with Mid-Autumn Festival in Singapore.

There are so many types and flavours rolled out each year that consumers are spoilt for choice. If you feel lost and confused, don’t worry.

From snowskin to traditional flavours, we’ve come up with a list of the best mooncakes you can get in Singapore.

Mid-Autumn Festival falls on 13 September 2019 (Friday) this year, so there’s still some time to decide which mooncakes to buy.



Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy

Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy will be showcasing new flavours of handmade snowskin mooncakes by Executive Chef Lester Wang from 16 August to 13 September 2019 such as Banana Chocolate, Salted Sea Caramel, Sakura and Green Tea with Melon Seeds.

The Banana Chocolate is the highlight for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. Encrusted in the marble white and yellow snowskin is a combination of dark chocolate and banana bits. The banana bits are marinated based on Executive Chef Lester Wang’s own recipe. The result is a wonderful combination of different flavours: semi bitter and fragrant with the natural sweetness of banana.

Another top seller is the Durian snowskin. Similar to the popular Durian Paste at Feast@East Buffet Restaurant, the filling is concocted based on a secret recipe and resembles close to the iconic taste of the king of fruits. Each bite promises a burst of authentic durian flesh along with the soft texture of handmade snowskin.

The hotel is also offering the traditional baked mooncakes with semi-sweet white lotus. Look out for 3 signature variants: White Lotus with Macadamia Nuts, Imperial Assorted Nuts and White Lotus with Single Egg Yolk.
