10 Best Mooncakes In 2018 To Celebrate Mooncake Festival Including Gula Melaka And Lava Mooncakes

31st August 2018

Not just a yearly mooncake affair

Eating mooncakes is a must-do every Mid-Autumn Festival, but having the same ol’ ones can get boring. If you, like me, are looking for something novel, you will be in for a treat this 2018. Here is our round-up of mooncakes to get this mooncake festival to celebrate in style.

1. Salted Gula Melaka & Coconut Snowskin Mooncakes

Mooncakes 2018 - Teaspoon Of Love

Teaspoon Of Love is one of our favourite picks for mooncakes this year. Their Salted Gula Melaka & Coconut Snowskin Mooncakes ($65 for six pieces) are pretty killers. Each bite was dreamy, with gula melaka lotus paste paired with sea salt and pandan. It was a harmony of flavours that wraps itself around you, lingering like a delicious kiss. Doesn’t hurt that each box also comes wrapped with an aesthetic paper sleeve and ribbon. Get yourself a box online from now till 9 September!


2. Durian And Salted Egg Lava Mooncakes

Mooncakes 2018 - Phoenix Lava

Phoenix Lava first captivated us with their oozy lava buns, and now they’re dishing out equally molten mooncakes as well. $48 gives you a box of two Thai Monthong Durian Lava Mooncakes and two Salted Egg Lava Mooncakes. Don’t forget to pop these into the microwave for 45 seconds before serving for their signature flowy centre.

Check out our review of their durian lava bun!
