10 Best Mooncakes in Singapore
1. Ding Bakery
From humble beginnings to award-winning bakery
Once a small family business in Malaysia, Ding Bakery has grown and branched out all the way to Singapore. Presently, it boasts awards for having one of the best mooncakes and box designs from various food critics and food blogs. Despite that and its almost 30,000 positive reviews on Google and Best in Singapore, the bakery continues to stay true to its homemade and handmade nature.
The taste of a winner
Following its award of Best Mooncake Recipe in the World Gastro Summit 2020, Ding Bakery offers its Mao Shan Wang Durian Snow Skin Mooncake which sources its AAA-grade MSW durians from the mountains of Pahang, Malaysia. Moreover, the bakery also sells limited edition 2021 Traditional Baked Moon Cakes in three different flavors: white lotus no yolk, pandan double yolk, and pandan no yolk. What’s more, they have the occasional free tasting in some venues, if you’re interested to know how good their treats taste.
Delicious deliveries in double time
What’s great about Ding Bakery is that they give you a sample of what they can deliver by offering trial snacks from late December to early January. If you love how they taste, then you can save up for a lot right before the Lunar New Year. In fact, if you purchase at least 100 SGD of goodies from Ding Bakery, then you can get it delivered to your place in 90 minutes or less for free.

Luxurious sights and tastes
Before you dive deep into their marvelous mooncakes, you have to first appreciate the luxury Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant provides. Home to award-winning Cantonese cuisine, this restaurant completes the fine dining experience on Orchard Road with private dining rooms, Chinese gold leaf calligraphy, and Chinois artwork. You can even enjoy your mooncakes while they offer you notable wines to match.
Premium pieces for your palate
In similar fashion, Wan Hao’s mooncakes pack an extravagant punch. Straightaway, they have their Golden Black Truffle Baked Mooncake with San Danele Ham, Single Yolk & Pistachio. This charcoal-coloured mooncake brushed with edible gold perfectly combines the taste of the King of Hams and the classic white lotus seed paste. Additionally, you can pair this treat with Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne as part of their premium gift set.
A flavor for every fan
While they offer the traditional white lotus seed paste and ‘Gai Zhai Bing’ (or ‘Ji Zai Bing’) baked mooncakes, Wan Hao also delivers alcohol-infused snow skin mooncakes for a modern touch. On one hand, they have their pink-hued Champagne Truffle with Milk Green Bean Paste for the ladies who want the subtle mix of bitter and sweet. On the other hand, they have their Cognac Truffle with Chesnut Paste for the men who want something creamier and nuttier.

3. Man Fu Yuan
Quality restaurant for any occasion
Regarded as one of Singapore’s best Chinese restaurants by Singapore Tatler, Man Fu Yuan undoubtedly delivers its modern twists with quality. Besides having great food, the restaurant entertains up to 172 guests with its suite of private dining rooms perfect for company lunches or big celebrations.
Mid-autumn garden delight
What we love about Man Fu Yan is their signature Secret Garden Snow Skin Mooncakes, rose-shaped mooncakes with traditional or floral tea infusions and chocolate truffle centers. Specifically, there is Japanese Matcha Green Tea with Osmanthus Truffle, Oolong Peach with Black Sesame Truffle, Earl Grey Baileys Cream Truffle, and Rose Flower Tea Truffle with Pistachio. These surprisingly delightful goods are layered on two-tiered stands and packaged in garden-themed tins that come in gold and rose gold.
Modern twists and pairings
In addition to the snow skin mooncakes, Man Fu Yuan’s executive chef Eric Neo comes to the plate with his array of handmade mooncakes: Red Bean Tangerine Paste, White Lotus Paste, Assorted Nuts (almonds, walnuts, macadamias, and sesame seeds), and Low-Sugar White Lotus Paste. Together with a Moscato d’Asti or one of their choice teas, you have yourself a classic pairing.

One of the fanciest hotels on Beach Road, JW Marriott Singapore South Beach offers both traditionally baked mooncakes like their Blueberry Paste with Chia Seeds or Single Yolk Lychee Lotus Paste and fancy mini snow skin mooncakes like their Green Apple with Soju Truffle and Milk Tea with Bailey Truffle. Moreover, their Full Moon Reigns mooncake box captures the spirit of the season by having the Chinese character for ‘moon’ as its structure. Surprisingly, when two of these boxes are joined together, they actually form the Chinese word for ‘friendship’. Whether you go for the box’s Blue Blossom or Peranakan Teal design, you are sure to bring something that your family or coworkers would love.
