The Kowloon Hotel
This is more a traditional choice but overlook it – oldies but goodies! Even a non-mooncake fan like me cannot contain myself but finished two of them on the first try. The handmade mini-sized mooncakes are filled with custard and wrapped with golden, slightly crispy paste. The result is soft, creamy and addictive!

For people who keep an eye on food trend, you must know that sweet potato is the next trendy superfood - Sweet potato contains anthocyanidin, which is good for anti-oxidation and anti-aging and it also a good source of potassium and dietary fiber, which help to lower blood pressure and contain edema (body swelling). The rich purple-coloured vegetable is not only good for your body, it’s super tasty! This year, Maria’s Bakery celebrates with a twist, offering a combo pack of sweet potato and egg custard moon cakes. They’re also suggested to pair with light floral teas such as rose, jasmine, green tea. Sweet Potato and Egg Custard Moon Cake Combo Pack ($178) available at Maria's Bakery shops.
