The ULTIMATE Guide To Singapore’s BEST Mooncakes In 2021

There's nothing like spending time with friends and family on Mid-Autumn Day and enjoying delicious mooncake along the way!

When the moon is round in autumn, that’s the signal to reunite and enjoy the festivities with your loved ones!

Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 21st of September this year and you know what that means – it’s mooncake time! Whether you’re a fan of the traditional lotus paste variety (sans salted egg yolk or with) or fancy a creative snow skin, mooncakes are a delicious way to celebrate this holiday. It goes without saying that the mooncakes available in Singapore during this period are gastronomical delights with plenty of surprises, as chefs try and outdo each other.

We tried some of the most unique offerings – such as mooncakes stuffed with decadent chocolate and ones infused with pu’er tea – and rounded up our picks of the best mooncakes in Singapore this year!
