Mid-Autumn festival or mooncake festival is just around the corner on Sept 27th.

 

Do you guys have any specific brands to recommend or go for? The number of brands is overwhelming.

 

Traditional , snowskin, exotic, anything...

 

Personally prefer the not-so-sweet types. 

 

I am fine if this thread is subsumed under that for previous years for simplicity.

I love traditional mooncakes :)
It's once a year tradition, so I just enjoy the sweetness :))

Ordered: 

 

Baked Single Yolk from Marriott and Mandarin Oriental.

 

Snowskin No Yolk from Ritz Carlton.

 

Only because there was a decent lobang from an ex-colleague. 

 

Have not ordered mooncakes for the last 3 years bec the prices are just plain ridiculous.

Personally i like Hua Ting's traditional mooncakes. White lotus paste, single or double yolk.

Otherwise snow skin D24 from Goodwood park.

 

This year, i'm just getting a box to give to my in laws. Raffles one cos just ask my sis to order for me via her company.

 

Tai Cheong Kok, i think it's average. Not worth the calories hehe.

The best snow skin l love is from Raffles Hotel, can't wait to collect my order

For traditional baked ones, Hong Kong rong hua is not bad

mandarin oriental is average, not sweet but not smooth enough

Tai Zhong Guo is ok ok

Bought Ritz Carlton's double yolks with lotus paste. They were good!


Hee hee.....when are you gonna give me one box? [:p]

I have never tried Marriott and MO so I ordered for taste trial. Used to order from Sheraton's Li Bai which is not bad.

 

Hope Ritz Carlton's Snowskin does not disappoint.

MO is good choice to order because it's still better than most

For snow skin, I highly recommend Raffles hotel snow skin champagne truffle and Ganache, it's always sold out nearing the festival

I fell in love with it some years back and I have never had any better since then

I m keen to try Ritz Carlton since Porker recommends it

With centralization of kitchens, wonder if these hotels' mooncakes are still made inhouse? Or coming from the same factory, but packaged and labeled differently with differentiating pricings.

never like snow skin, cos the making process is to use hand to make (not sure there is any machine made snow skin).

 

unlike traditional ones that will go into the oven to bake and kill all the germs  [laugh]

Hee hee, that's true but I think hotel hygiene level should be ok....trust that they should be wearing gloves?

Home made ones confirmed use hands.......
