After personally observing Singapore’s mooncake scene for the past 6 years, I have pretty much observed how Wan Hao at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza can consistently have one of the most popular mooncakes each year. I vividly remember they even ran out of boxes 3 weeks prior to Mid-autumn festival last year due to strong sales. The hotel notably manufactures its bakes inhouse and its mooncakes have no preservatives or artificial flavors.
Bestsellers include their conventional White Lotus Seed Paste with Single/Double Yolk Baked Mooncake and White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with Macadamia Nuts which are baked to a majestic golden brown. A new flavor of baked mooncakes this year is the Green Bean Paste with Pumpkin Seeds “Gai Zai Bing” Baked Mooncake which evokes nostalgia with its mix of sweet and salty. For those feeling luxurious, check out the property’s gold-dusted Black Truffle Baked Mooncake with San Daniele Ham, Single Yolk and Pistachios. Essentially, it has white lotus as its base with the flavor enhanced with black truffles and the ham rendering a rather savory profile.
Those who prefer snowskin mooncakes will be spoiled for choice. New flavors from Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza include the Luxurious Rose Bird’s Nest with Golden Custard Paste Snowskin Mooncake, an indulgent treat with a generous portion of bird’s nest at its core. For something more accessible, there’s the Champagne Truffle with Milk Green Bean Paste Snowskin Mooncake, Cognac Truffle with Chestnut Paste Snowskin Mooncake and the White Rabbit Truffle with Cranberry Paste Snowskin Mooncake. The hotel’s Pure Mao Shan Wang Premium Grade Durian Snowskin Mooncake will again make a comeback with its rich and creamy durian pulp encased in velvety-soft snowskin.
