Soft, sweet, savoury, crunchy – there’s no end to the different types of mooncakes in the world!
If you’re looking to get your hands on some mooncakes this Mid-Autumn Festival, here’s a quick shopping guide!
Dking Musang King Durian Snowy Mooncakes @ Ten Years (LG2.52)
Did someone say Musang King? If you’re looking for classic durian mooncakes with a twist, you’ve got to sink your teeth into these!
The mooncakes are best eaten while slightly soft and the durian flesh packs a punch with a creamy interior.
One box of 8 snowskin mooncakes are priced at RM168 (promotional price).
With purchase of 3 boxes and above, each box will be priced at RM138.
Grand Imperial (F Floor, Pinnacle Annexe, Bandar Sunway)
These mooncakes are certainly unique!
We can’t help but to be drawn to the intricate, regal design of Grand Imperial’s mooncakes which incorporates their Chinese name in both traditional baked and snowskin variants.
For weight watchers, the Low Sugar White Lotus Paste would be the perfect choice, while if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try the Bamboo Charcoal White Lotus or Almond with Sesame White Lotus Paste.

Hilton (LG2 Orange Wing)
Don’t these mooncakes look gorgeous?
Opt for traditional or snowskin mooncakes by Hilton, handcrafted to gourmet perfection. Our personal recommendation would be the exclusive Snowskin Roselle Ruby or Heavenly Gold (durian) varieties) which will tantalise your tastebuds and leave you wanting more.
These delightful mooncakes are priced at RM25-35 each, while a box of 4 mooncakes would range from RM140-RM288+.

Once you’ve tasted an ice cream mooncake, you’d never turn back.
We’re hopelessly in love with these decadent handcrafted mooncakes from Inside Scoop – which comes in a set of Raspberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Hazelnut, D24 Durian and Hojicha. Each flavour is well thought-out and balanced in terms of flavours, texture and sweetness.

Mysteriously dark on the outside and velvety smooth on the inside, Komugi’s Bamboo Charcoal Hazelnut Mooncake is luxurious yet not overly rich, perfect as a teatime or after meal snack.
Matcha lovers will fall in love with the Green Tea Milk Mooncake, which contains a milky centre and chewy melon seeds to bring home the earthy tones of green tea.
Each set of 4 is priced at RM60.
We’re not going to lie – we definitely judged this mooncake by it’s box. We can’t get over the elegant velvet burgundy and gold outer casing, which protects the silk patterned inner box.
Each mooncake is nestled in their own decorative paper box, which can be given individually as gifts or as a set of 4.
You won’t go wrong with Dragon-i’s signature Hong Kong White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk, handcrafted by their house chef. The paste is unbelievably smooth, fragrant and goes well with the premium salted egg yolk.
If you’re not a fan of sweet mooncakes, opt for their Stevia White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk which is made with plant based sugars and better for health.

Simple Life (LG2.126)
While mooncakes are delicious, they tend to contain high amounts of sugar, egg yolks and rich ingredients.
We were overjoyed to hear about Simple Life’s healthy mooncakes which are thoughtfully made with natural ingredients and contain less sugar than ordinary mooncakes. The mooncakes do not contain any artificial flavours or colouring, suitable for all you health-conscious folks!

Coated in dark chocolate, the mooncakes are available in Belgian Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Caramel Biscuit & Cream flavours.
到底要吃多少粒月饼才足够呢？Lion想吃8粒！而且是要8粒都不同口味的冰淇淋月饼。这次Haagen Daz的主题是【七星伴月】 由七粒月饼陪伴着一粒大型月饼。七星伴月也七样事物或者东西围绕一个美好事务。尝试到这八种独特口味何尝不是件美好事务呢。
Esquire Kitchen (G1.42)
Word has it that these mooncakes are selling quick! Sadly, we didn’t manage to get our hands on Esquire’s best-selling Tropical Emerald mooncake (Lotus Root, Mung Beans, Pandan Juice & Coconut Powder).
However, we were intrigued by their unique Hana Kisses mooncake, made with Lotus Seed, Mochi and Apricot, in a romantic pastel rose skin. The tangy apricot was a pleasant balance to the sweetness of the lotus seed, while the texture of the mochi complemented the overall experience.
Prices start from RM16.80 per mooncake. Enjoy a 10% discount with each box of 4 mooncakes.
Legend Of Tea (LG1.98)
Did you know? Mooncakes and tea are a match made in heaven!
Legend of Tea’s Gong Mei White Tea goes best with snowskin mooncakes and contains loads of antioxidants to help reduce risk of cancer, boost cardiovascular health and lower cholesterol.
As most mooncakes tend to be sweet, tea would definitely be a better choice to soothe the taste buds, calm the digestive system and promote overall health.
Prices start from RM68 per White Tea packet at Legend of Tea. Can’t get enough? Enjoy 70% off if you decide to purchase a 2nd piece!
