7 Places to Buy Mooncakes for Under $78 in Singapore

7 Places to Buy Mooncakes for Under $78 in Singapore

Mooncakes take centerstage once again, as this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival occurs this September. These round (and sometimes square) shaped pastries with rich, creamy fillings have definitely evolved from the traditional Cantonese-style desserts that we all know and love. Mooncakes are now stuffed with a dizzying array of flavours imaginable, from ice and jellies, to alcoholic infusions. 

They’ve also amped up the aesthetics…The standard golden-brown mooncakes have been modified into the prettiest pastries in delicate hues, and placed in elaborate packaging, perfect for gift-giving. So whether you want to buy mooncakes as a treat for yourself or as gifts for family, friends, and co-workers, here’s where you can get them in Singapore – and they’re all under $78!

1. For old-school Mooncakes with a Signature Lotus Seed flavour: Tai Chong Kok Mooncakes

Tai Chong Kok Mooncakes, also known as Da Zhong Guo Mooncakes, are made by hand and from scratch. The bakery, which has been producing these classic mooncakes since 1935, uses only premium ingredients such as their lotus seed paste. (This paste uses 100% original lotus seeds and is strictly made in-house.)

You can’t go wrong with their plain lotus paste mooncakes, as well as their other classic varieties, such as their snowskin and single/double yolk mooncakes. Looking for vegetarian mooncakes? Don’t worry, they’ve got them too!

But alas, no such job exists (at least to her knowledge), so here she is, digging the deep trenches of the Internet to back up the words she strings for posterity and public service. Her current passion for memes is relegated to pastime status, but she hopes that one day, she can sit back with a dirty martini and scroll and share memes like a beast without having to worry about next month's rent.
