Our Top 8 Favorite Mooncake

Mid-autumn Festival is unanimously synonymous with reunion and auspiciousness, and a traditional occasion to sit down, enjoy slices of mooncakes with a cup of Oolong tea with your family. As the festive season comes swinging in full force, Singapore’s mooncakes took it up a notch, regardless of its flavor or packaging. Here is a list of the top 15 mooncakes or mooncakes sets that we adore.

1. Park Hotel Group

Classical White Lotus Paste with Six Yolks Mooncake

Park Hotel’s Group realizes the significance of this special festival, therefore focusing on a traditional mooncake that embodies kinship and reunion. This larger-than-usual mooncake features a fresh filling made of high-grade lotus paste and six salted egg yolks. Other than the classic white lotus paste, it comes in Teochew Mung Bean flavor and also Red Bean and Winter Melon. More inclined to alternative flavors? Then go for their exquisitely crafted snowskin mooncakes such as Apple with Cherry Brandy Truffle and Royal Topaz with Nougat & Chocolate Pops.

2. A.Hans Bakes

Mooncakes? Cupcakes? Mooncakes cupcakes? Yes, mooncakes cupcakes. Food mashups are so in the trend right now that everything can be thought of, so it’s only time that mooncakes cupcakes are in the market these days. After two years of mooncake cupcakes sold, A.Hans Bakes came up with 4 other variations, namely Orh-ni, Matcha Azuki, Pandan Chocolate and Durian. These refined-looking baked goods consist of paste stuffed in fluffy cupcakes and then topped with cream cheese. And oh, not to forget how lovely they look!

3. Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant

Mooncake flavors are constantly evolving, somewhat to the extent of the unthinkable. Black Truffle, Roasted Chestnut, Waxed Duck and Single Yolk with White Lotus Seed Paste Baked Mooncake and the Jalapeno and Chicken Bak-Kwah with White Lotus Seed Paste Baked Mooncake created by the award-winning Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel are epitomical examples. Tackling a superb balance between sweet and savory, each bite of their baked mooncake brings a sense of novelty and excitement. For more pleasant surprises to raise brows, look out for their snowskin mooncakes such as the Sour Plum with Portuguese Custard and Lime Puree Snowskin Mooncake. Also, their mooncakes are low in sugar, so don’t worry about piling on the pounds this festive season.

4. Carlton Hotel Singapore Wah Lok Chinese Restaurant

With so many mooncakes out there, you might want something different, yet presentable as a gift. Mini Walnut Moontarts created by top-notch pastry chefs in Carlton Hotel delivers a unique coupling of smooth white lotus paste and egg yolk enveloped in crisp fragrant crust. If you’re looking for a gift for the health conscious, they have a low sugar alternative without egg yolk too. These dainty pastries are placed in a beautifully designed gift set box when you order 8 of them. Durian-anything has an unfailing effect on us. Fresh and without preservatives, the Mini “Mao Shan Wang” Durian Snowskin Mooncakes would certainly make an impression with their luscious durian pulp that’s enveloped in a pillow-light snowskin.

5. Mandarin Orchard Singapore

If you’re a huge believer that Mid-autumn Festival should be all about the classic mooncakes, then Mandarin Orchard Singapore would not disappoint. Their Baked Mooncake with Single/Double Yolk and White Lotus Paste does not taste overwhelmingly sweet but still, a lower sugar variety is available with the Baked Mooncake with Macadamia Nuts and Low Sugar White Lotus Paste for the health conscious. Also notable is how they do an interesting change with the Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts and Jamón ibérico and especially the Baked Mooncake with Azuki Red Bean Paste and Pine Nuts.

6. Raffles Hotel

This year, Raffles Hotel relaunches their signature snowskin mooncake set – a winning combination of traditional Chinese and classic English. One such example is the Snow-Skin Earl Grey Tea and Pearl Truffle Mooncake with its core a rich milk chocolate truffle infused with premium earl grey tea, and studded with tiny, dark chocolate-coated cereal puffs for a delicate crunch. The Snow-Skin Raffles Cognac Truffle Mooncake would be pleasing to the tastebuds, for it boasts a slightly bitter dark chocolate center with a kick of brandy without being too overwhelming. Among 6 of their snowskin mooncakes, the Snow-Skin Champagne Truffle and Ganache Mooncake would be the most iconic and original creation, containing creamy white lotus paste with a Champagne white chocolate truffle at its heart.

7. Sucre

Mooncakes are often savored in between sips of Chinese tea, but what about a union between these two? Sucre, well-known for their gourmet pineapple truffles, makes a hybrid between two most traditional teas – Oolong with Pu-er and Oolong with Osmanthus – with premium grade lotus paste, which makes a lovely option when you want to indulge in something just a little different. Creating a contrast with their varieties of traditional baked mooncakes such as White Lotus Seed Paste with Macadamia Nuts and Premium Red Bean Paste with Melon Seeds, the contemporary-designed gift box that comes with every four mooncakes purchased manifests the impression of mid-autumn. Also, their last year’s best-selling White Lotus Seed Paste with Cherries returns this year to stand hand-in-hand with the perennial favorite, White Lotus Seed Paste with Pineapple and Single Yolk.

8. PrimaDeli

Youngsters who loves a twist to snowskin mooncake would be more than happy to get your hands on PrimaDeli’s mooncake collection.

Big fan of cookies and cream? PrimaDeli’s take on this all-time favorite is made using cream cheese and Oreo cookies for added crunch.

    Looking at these truly gorgeous mooncakes already made my family and me soaked in the festive mood. Can’t wait to try it!

    Sharing and eating mooncakes are traditions of the Mid-Autumn Festival.

    Really hope that I can win a set of these gorgeous mooncakes so that I can share with my family and loved ones. It is on this special day that we gather with our loved ones and enjoy mooncakes and tea over chats. My parents would be the happiest persons. Mooncake is their favourite. Not only can they taste the delicious mooncakes which go very well with their chinese tea, they can also get to see, talk and play with their grandchildren on this special day. It is also a great opportunity for them to catch up with their relatives and some good old friends too. It’s so warming and so wonderful.

    My parents are already very old. And mooncake festival is only celebrated once a year. Therefore, I hope to win for them (while they are still healthy and around with me – as time waits for no man) as well as for the rest of my loved ones to enjoy this fabulous mooncakes for this coming festival gathering. Apart from that, this mooncake is very important to me as it will lead us home uniting our loved ones together.

    Many thanks for the awesome giveaway.
