Classic mooncake offerings

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or the Mooncake Festival, is one of the most important occasions in Chinese culture. It is during this season when families reunite, often traveling long distances to be together. These important days are hardly complete without mooncakes, the beloved pastries filled with lotus seed paste, red bean, or other fillings.

This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on 29 September. With the season fast approaching, get your delectable signature mooncakes at these places for your lunar reunions.
