Mid-Autumn Festival 2023: Mooncake collections with intriguing flavours

We’re less than a month away from the Mid-Autumn Festival, so it’s time to double down on gift ideas for your loved ones. If you’re on the hunt for something more unique this year, these establishments have one-of-a-kind mooncake flavours that you have to try. 




Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur took the classic route with its packaging this year and instead, got a little creative with the mooncake flavours. For its 2023 mooncake collection, the luxury hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef, Kevin Pannier, has created a range of decadent chocolate mooncakes that are available in three flavours—Dulcey Chocolate with Raspberry and Peanuts, Mango-Vanilla, and one of the bestsellers, the Malaysian Dark Chocolate Ganache. 

Its snowskin mooncakes also have an array of unique flavours like Matcha Cream Cheese with Oreo cookies and Lotus Paste; Pandan Lotus Paste with Cashews, Macadamias, Almonds and Peanut butter; and of course, Musang King Durian—because what’s a celebration without the king of fruits? Furthermore, its traditional baked mooncakes are available in classic flavours like Assorted Mixed Nuts, Lotus Paste with Single Yolk, Pandan Paste with Single Yolk, Red Bean Paste with Almond Flakes, and Low Sugar White Lotus Paste.

This year, Le Petit Four presents a refreshing take on their mooncakes. The bakery is giving a fruity twist to their collection by incorporating fruits that surprisingly pair well with classic mooncake flavours. Opt for the Red Bean with Orange Peel or Pu Er with Osmanthus Lemon Yuzu if you prefer a refreshing, citrusy bite. On the other hand, if you still want to bite into a sweet treat, go for the Red Dates with Pecan Nuts.
