Lanterns, sparklers, and moon-watching; these are some ways to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. But without the delicious mooncakes, it will no longer qualify as an eventful season!
We have saved you the trouble of scooping out places that offer mooncakes; from flavours like the popular boba to salted egg yolk, get your mooncakes from these establishments:
1. Andaz Singapore
Sticking to tradition is Andaz Singapore which will be preparing the traditional mooncake made with lotus paste and wrapped in pastry skin. It will be presenting two classic flavours – low sugar white lotus paste with yolk blend and low sugar lotus paste with melon seeds (SGD150 nett).
This limited edition mooncake collection will come dressed in a beautifully handcrafted lacquered wooden box – from an exclusive collaboration between the hotel and the home-grown brand Qua by Brex. Every collection’s lacquered box will contain the two flavours individually packed within exquisitely-made paper boxes finished with traditional floral motifs in a deep red metallic hue.
