Mid-Autumn is a special time for family bonding and to recite old time tales of how Chang’er and her rabbit got stuck on the moon. It’s also a time to scour for the best discounted mooncakes from all the atas hotels to gift to relatives and friends. 

If you thought the selections last Mid-Autumn was vast, this year’s offerings may have you overwhelmed. Hotels are stepping it up with unique flavours like Milo Dinosaur Mooncake from The Fullerton Hotel and Teh Tarik and Chocolate Truffle Mooncake from Grand Hyatt.

These Teh Tarik and Chocolate Truffle Snowskin Mooncakes by Grand Hyatt Singapore have a strong tea flavour, with added sweetness from the lotus paste and chocolate truffle filling - sort of like a teh-tarik and milo blend. Tell me that doesn’t sound enticing.

If you want decadence, Li Bai’s Black Truffle Sea Salt Dark Chocolate with White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake is the epitome of it. Bite through the skin, past the lotus seed paste, and you’ll be met with the present in the middle: the chocolate core. This ball of goodness is made of a rich black truffle and dark chocolate filling, in a white chocolate truffle core - talk about truffle-ception.

What a piece of art. Goodwood Park Hotel’s Blue Pea Flower with White Lotus Seed Paste and Melon Seeds mooncake comes in beautiful blue hues, topped with blue and yellow pea flowers. They almost look straight out of The Starry Night by Van Gogh.
