It’s the mooncake season! 

Mooncakes are the stars of the Mid-Autumn Festival, which is celebrated every 15th day of the eighth lunar month. Usually eaten under a full moon, we can give these delectable pastries to our nearest and dearest as gifts or simply enjoy them by ourselves at home to celebrate the occasion. 

This year, the event falls on Sept. 21. If you’ve been searching for online stores that are offering such delights, look no further as we’ve compiled a list just for you. Read on. 

For the upcoming festival, Eng Bee Tin has prepared delicious variants like choco banana, durian, and pandan priced at P215 per can. If you want to go for the traditional flavors, it has a set (P360) that has both lotus and mixed nuts mooncakes you would equally love. 

Shangri-La at The Fort is here to wow many again with its rich, irresistible mooncakes. For its Over The Moon line, it features six variants: white lotus with salted egg yolk, black sesame with salted egg yolk, red bean and pine nuts, matcha, mixed nuts, and pineapple. The mini mooncakes start at P388, while the regular-sized ones start at P588.
