Online Mid-Autumn Mooncake Fair 2021
Crowds used to flock to the basement of Ngee Ann City every Mid-Autumn Festival for their mooncake shopping at the Mid-Autumn Fair. Due to the pandemic, the physical fair is currently on hiatus. And so, in its place is the equally exciting Online Mid-Autumn Fair. With over 30 brands to browse from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
To help you zoom in on some highlights, here are 10 mooncake brands you should try at the Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES Online Mid-Autumn Festival 2021.
You also get free delivery islandwide with just $30 spent. If you order two or more boxes of mooncakes and opt for self-collection instead, then you’ll be entitled to a $10 Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES gift voucher, limited to the first 2,000 customers.
Purchase the mooncakes online, and you also get a free box of 50 pieces of face masks, with a BFE of ≥ 95%.

Aroma Truffle is known for their truffle potato chips. This Mid-Autumn Festival, they have expanded their repertoire to truffle MSW mooncakes. The king of mushrooms and durians come together two ways at Aroma Truffle: the Onyx Truffle Musang King Mooncake, and the Frosty Truffle Musang King Mooncake.
The former combines the earthy black truffle and charcoal to create a deep black, QQ snowskin, which then wraps around pure 100% MSW puree. The latter features a mochi-like snowskin, with an MSW durian filling that is studded with real bits of black truffle.
Experience a bit of both with the Heritage Bundle ($108), which entitles you to two pieces of each in a gift box. If you’d like your mooncakes to come with a side of truffle chips, then go for the Paragon Bundle ($128), which gives you a box of four mooncakes, as well as your choice of two of Aroma Truffle’s signature chip flavours.
