Check out this list to see some of the unique takes (from both hotels and restaurants) on this rich and decadent pastry—we're sure something will take your fancy.

Janice Wong

For Chocolate and Snowskin Mooncakes
As someone who's no stranger to celebratory confections, chef & chocolatier Janice Wong has outdone herself once again. This time, with her signature mooncake collections—Chocolate and Snowskin. Each mooncake is set to be a unique re-imagination of the ubiquitous dessert, as they've all been emboldened with Wong's expressive approach to dessert and art.

Crafted from bean-to-bar, the Chocolate Mooncake Tin ($88) showcases distinct local flavours including everything from Kaffir Lime Leaf and Laksa Lemongrass to Coconut Curry Leaf and Ginger Flower; each is marked by intricate hand-dripped paint in corresponding pastel shades of green, blue, yellow, and pink. The tin comes in a set of eight chocolate mooncakes (two flavours each) and is packed in a sustainable, reusable metal tin that's adorned with pastel hues and a rabbit-themed design.

The Snowskin Mooncake Tin ($88), on the other hand, is inspired by the native ingredients of various prefectures in Japan. Highlights include a pleasing pairing of Sake Matcha that sees an emerald snowskin mooncake infused with a bright floral sake, as well as, a rather unconventional Kombu Wasabi Chestnut flavour that sports an earthy green snowskin mooncake laced with fresh wasabi.

5 On 25

For Teh Gao Siew Dai Mooncakes 
Andaz Singapore's upscale Cantonese restaurant 5 On 25 presents their first-ever line-up of exquisite mooncakes which come in six tantalising flavours, each enchanting in their own right. One such flavour is their Signature Tea Blend, showcasing a harmonious union of Osmanthus, Oolong tea and Pu'Er tea notes, all of which have been delicately infused into their mooncakes. This would definitely be perfect when paired with a warm cup of tea!

Another standout flavour is the Teh Gao Siew Dai, a creamy concoction of rich lotus paste with fragrant milk tea, all encased in a single mooncake. Jazzed up further with almond flakes, the textural elements of this mooncake are immensely satisfying with every bite.
