The mid-autumn or mooncake festival 2022 (中秋节) will fall on the 10th of September 2022. In the lunar calendar, the mid-autumn festival is celebrated every 15th of the eight month.

Mooncake Festival 2022

Despite tight supply chains and runaway inflation, this looks to be another year filled with noteworthy and even some unusual flavors. This guide will be regularly updated with 2022’s catalog of the best mooncakes in Singapore as well as ongoing promotions and mooncake delivery options. The most common types of mooncakes include:

  • Traditional baked mooncakes which come with lotus paste or occasionally with red bean paste. These baked mooncakes may also come with one or two salted egg yolks at the center. Sub-specialties include low-sugar baked mooncakes or those that replace the traditional lotus paste with something else, such as pandan.
  • Snowskin mooncakes, which need to be chilled and have a shorter shelf life, usually come in fruit flavors with sub-specialties including durian mooncakes and even alcohol infused ones. Snowskin mooncakes are not baked and the crust is made with glutinous rice, enabling a texture similar to mochi. These mooncakes are usually considered less oily than the traditional baked ones.
  • Teochew mooncakes are also baked but differ in the sense that the crust is made of filo pastry. Instead of lotus paste, the filling is made with yam, green bean or red bean.

I will also aim to show what the containers look like, so that you’ll know which hotels, Chinese restaurants and bakeries have the best and most beautiful mooncake boxes for 2022.

Is there mooncake fair in 2022?

Given the relaxation of measures, physical mooncake fairs are expected to come back in 2022. However, online mooncake fairs are likely to persist given the convenience it has provided the last few years. The list below contains some exclusive deals and offers not found elsewhere so check them out.

If you do get any of the mooncakes listed below, do share snaps of your haul with me by tagging me on Instagram (@iwanderrr) and I’ll repost as much as I can!

They have a number of unique flavors that especially appeal to fruit lovers including the coveted Avocado snowskin. The filling is made up of mashed avocadoes – a high concentration of the nutritious fruit as I have tried since discovering them 2 years ago – plus a good proportion of macadamia nuts for that added crunch. Alongside this, Kele also has a couple of tropical fruit flavored snowskin mooncakes such as the Mango and Pink Guava Ume snowskin mooncakes. For those who like to have a bit of alcohol in this mid-autumn delight, the Passionfruit Cognac snowskin and the Raspberry Whisky snowskin are a must-try.

Exclusive to readers of I Wander as well, customers can choose to purchase Regent Singapore’s luxurious Bird’s Nest and Gold Leaf Snowskin as a standalone set of 4 pieces. This is in contrast to the version made available to the public where this flavor can only be purchased as a bundle with either a cocktail or tea set.

*Top Traditional Mooncake Pick* New flavors From Cherry Garden at Mandarin Oriental Singapore this year include the traditional baked Chestnut with Taro Coconut, Hongyu Black Tea Lotus with Pomelo and Citrus Peel and Pumpkin Seeds as well as the snowskin Lemon GenmaichaTangerine with Melon Seeds and Black Sesame with Roasted Walnut. Their baked flavors are among the most delicious I’ve encountered this year. Mandarin Oriental Singapore is also offering a series of low-sugar baked mooncakes such as the Low Sugar Silver Lotus Paste with 1 / 2 yolks and the Lychee Martini and Chocolate Truffle. Mandarin Oriental Singapore uses the term “silver lotus paste” rather than the usual white lotus paste as their mooncakes’ lower sugar content renders a lighter color of lotus paste filling as compared to the brown-er regular white lotus paste.

Among luxury hotels, Mandarin Oriental Singapore is one of the very few that allows customers to buy single pieces of the traditional baked mooncakes rather than the entire box. Single pieces will be housed in individual tins. 2-piece sets are also available.

The box: The mooncake boxes from Mandarin Oriental Singapore come embellished with elegant cherry blossom motifs and can house either 2/4pcs of the traditional mooncakes or 8pcs for snowskin mooncakes. The format of their boxes is slightly different than others in the sense that within the main gift box, the small individual boxes encasing the mooncakes are made of tin rather than the paper boxes usually found elsewhere for the individual packaging.

Dates: Now until 10th September 2022

Prices: From S$82 (4pcs traditional / 8pcs snowskin)
