Mid-Autumn is just around the corner, and as we prepare to celebrate this special occasion, the traditional mooncake becomes the star of the show. A celebration of family reunions and togetherness, the mooncake is an important part of the festivities.

But with so many options available in the market, it’s hard to know which one to choose. So, we’ve done the work for you and selected 6 mooncakes that not only taste great but look amazing too!

1. Capitol x Gardens By The Bay

In a surprising twist, mooncake enthusiasts are in for a treat this year with the introduction of a unique flavour combination: Rose and Chrysanthemum!

Garden by the Bay and The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore have collaborated on an exclusive mooncake launch. The mooncakes are delicately flavoured with rose and chrysanthemum, paying homage to the floral displays at Gardens by the Bay. In fact, Flower Dome’s next floral display, Chrysanthemum Charm, will open on 29 September, the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Encased in gift boxes adorned with illustrations of the iconic Singapore cityscape, these mooncakes are available in three different sets: The Enchantment ($88), Dusty Rose Collection ($112), and Pastel Pink Collection ($112). Each set contains a total of eight pieces of baked mooncakes, including Rose Macadamia, Chrysanthemum Melon Seed, White Lotus with Egg Yolk, Red Bean Almond, and Walnut Lotus.
