Mid-Autumn is a widely celebrated festival among Chinese all over the world. It is a heart-warming occasion that brings family and loved ones together for a time of bonding while admiring the bright full moon and enjoying decadent mooncakes and tea.
As with every year, we want nothing but the best for this occasion—luxurious mooncakes of the highest quality that everybody enjoys.
This year, InterContinental Singapore’s award-winning restaurant Man Fu Yuan unveils a divine collection of handcrafted mooncakes featuring four new tantalising snowskin mooncakes that come in floral flavours, and a selection of six baked mooncakes handcrafted by Executive Chinese Chef Kwan Yiu Kan using time-honoured recipes.
Highly regarded for their luxurious and high-quality chocolates, we were anticipating Awfully Chocolate Singapore’s gorgeous Blue Moon Chocolate Mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival this year. We expect nothing less from the expert chocolatiers at Awfully Chocolate who have been in the business for almost 20 years.
Locals trust this homegrown brand to always create chocolate desserts that are made with intricacy and care and this Mid-Autumn Festival, Awfully Chocolate Singapore shows us that they are more than just cakes and ice cream with their interpretation of mooncakes—the stunning Blue Moon Chocolate Mooncakes that come in two flavours.
These mooncakes are like mini chocolate desserts that mimic an actual mooncake. If you are tired of the traditional mooncakes with lotus paste and salted egg yolk, why not treat yourselves to a sweet delight with these pretty chocolate mooncakes instead?
Year after year, Hong Kong’s Mei-Xin Mooncakes impress with the most authentic tastes of Mid-Autumn Festival coupled with innovative new flavours such as lava custard and lava chocolate flavours which performed exceptionally well in recent years.
This year, they aim to do no different with their traditional varieties, snow skin collection, the ever-popular lava custard mooncakes and even a superhero-themed mooncake collection featuring iconic Marvel characters Iron Man and Spider-Man.
Their mooncakes are crafted intricately, encompassing both time-honoured recipes and passion to create stunning confectioneries for families from all over to enjoy, which is no surprise why they are the best-selling mooncake brand in Hong Kong for 19 consecutive years.
One thing that all foodies can agree on is that we are constantly on a see-food diet and there is no stopping us when a feast of tantalising seafood is laid before us. The joy of getting down and dirty with crabs, mussels and prawns is so appealing and should this experience come at an affordable price tag, what is there not to love?

It was not too long ago when PizzaExpress opened its first outlet in Singapore at Scotts Square just about a year ago and already this colossal pizza restaurant chain—with 600 outlets in the UK, Asia, the Middle East and in several parts of Europe—has opened its second outlet at Duo Galleria with a third one at Marina One on its way.
Founded in London more than 50 years ago, PizzaExpress specialises in gourmet, hand-made Italian pizza that even Italian palates will agree with.
