Best Mooncake Deals in Singapore 2019 | SingSaver

From the traditional to the trendy, here are the best mooncake deals and credit card discounts for 2019.


If Lewis Caroll had decided to let Alice tumble down a rabbit hole in Asia instead of London, we’re pretty sure she would’ve attended a tea party with mooncakes – and the banter around the table would’ve been centred on the stories that make mooncakes so mystical.

Long before these ubiquitous treats became synonymous with the Mid-Autumn Festival, mooncakes were secretly used to distribute secret notes. During the Yuan dynasty, Ming revolutionaries would hide messages inside mooncakes in a bid to overthrow the Mongolian rulers of China.

Legend also has it that the messages were embossed on a pack of 4 mooncakes, which would be further divided into four parts, and finally pieced together like a puzzle. Eating them at the end meant destroying all evidence. If this were to be turned into a film, it’d be titled Eat After Reading (Burn After Reading, be damned).

Mooncakes, fortunately, didn’t remain part of lore alone. Today, they symbolise the traditional harvest celebration when the moon is at its fullest. The Mid-Autumn Festival aka Mooncake Festival, as it’s termed, falls on 13 September this year.

They are a marker for family reunions, widely celebrated in many Asian communities around the world. Shared over tea, gifted to family and work/business folks, they make for gorgeous Instagram posts. 

Traditionally made with thick lotus seed paste wrapped around salted egg yolks, the crusty mooncake found love in the hearts (and homes) of Asians everywhere. Only now the salted egg is happily traded for more decadent options that would make Wong Kar-wai proud.

But with the extensive variety in flavours, packaging, and offers by hotels and bakeries out there, it can get a tad tough to scout for the best mooncake boxes or deals. So we’ve done the job for you and rounded up the best mooncakes of 2019, along with best-discounted offers and credit card deals.

From the traditional to the trendy, there’s something for everyone – guaranteed to make you feel over the moon.

1. For the traditional with a twist

Puritans will vouch that nothing tastes quite like the traditional Teochew mooncake. Flaky crust giving way to sweet and fragrant filling spells nostalgia with every bite.
