The mooncake festival is always an exciting time. Not just because we get to feast on the decadent pastries, but more-so for the precious time spent with family reminiscing over – and creating – timeless memories. Though we’re limited to a gathering of five for now, just think of it as an excuse to make multiple trips throughout the day in celebration of the annual event.
After all, there’s nothing more comforting than timeworn flavours amid a time of uncertainty. Sure, brands are continuing to come up with innovating and exciting new variations on the traditional pastry, but the enduring quality of old-style, handcrafted mooncakes is something that’ll never, ever go out of fashion.
And if the flavours don’t excite you, how about mooncake boxes? Nothing sets the tone like a well-made mooncake box – which at the very least, provides some much-needed respite from other worrisome topics. Here’s our pick of Mooncake Festival 2020’s best flavours and decadent treats.
