Conrad Centennial Singapore Mooncake 2019 : A Celestial Celebration



Mid-Autumn Festival is coming soon.

You know when it is Mid Autumn festival when you start seeing stalls in malls start selling their mooncakes. 2 main things happen during the Mid Autumn festival. The first is the carrying of lanterns and the second is the eating of mooncakes under the glorious full moon. The latter is probably what many look forward to during this period of celebration as this festival is usually done in a gathering of friends and relatives.

Regardless if you are celebrating, partaking in mooncake is a common sight. Usually, we would buy mooncake for friends, relatives or colleagues during this period.  When giving mooncakes as gifts, the appearance of the box plays an important role in its presentation.


Our auspicious red box from Conrad Centennial is well made with leather-like finishes on the exterior and velvety feel in the interior. Unlike traditional mooncake boxes. these boxes are designed to resemble oriental jewellery chest. It is an elegant design. Not only does it look grand as a gift, but you could always re-purposed them as jewellery boxes thereafter.


The sophisticated mooncake boxes come in three colours - Limited Edition Emerald Green, Limited Edition Burgundy Red and Auspicious Red. The first two have a classic crocodile-patterned finishing, with all three deserving a spot as your jewellery cabinets.



 As for the mooncakes, Conrad offers a range of classic baked mooncakes as well as mini snow skin and Filo pastry mooncakes.



The classic baked range consists of the following


-Traditional Baked Single Yolk in White Lotus Paste
-Traditional Baked Double Yolk in White Lotus Paste
-Traditional Baked Honey Osmanthus *
- Traditional Baked Red Bean Paste and Orange Peel
*suitable for vegetarians.

The class baked range has the right texture and flavour. The crust is not flaky and the white lotus paste simply melts in your mouth. The mooncakes are branded individually and for different flavours as identified by the markings. Coming from Golden Peony, a Michelin-rated restaurant known for its fine Cantonese food, it is not surprising that the mooncakes are of the highest quality in terms of taste, texture and presentation.



The set of 4 starts from $82 per box depending on flavour. If you would like to sample all 4 flavours, you could opt for the Golden Peony Traditional Baked Treasures ( 1 piece per flavour) priced at $82.


If you are looking for snow skin variety, Conrad Centennial Singapore also provide various flavours such as Green Tea, Maple Walnut, Hazelnut Crunch, Blue Pea and Sweet Potato. They come in a set of 4 with prices starting from $82.
