Editor's Pick: The Best Mooncakes In Manila 2021

From traditional to modern, here are the year's best choices

It’s mooncake season! Every year, the Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the night when the full moon shines its brightest and roundest. Traditionally a harvest festival, it’s a time for family reunions, when people catch up with relatives and friends, and exchange the traditional gift of mooncakes — round pastries enveloping dense, creamy fillings. This year, Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 21. But while it's still some weeks away, it’s never too early to start shopping for mooncakes! Experience has shown that if you don’t order your mooncakes ahead, you'll find that the best ones will have sold out really fast. 

Because it can be a challenge to find the best mooncakes, the ones you’d be proud to gift, we did the research for you. Presenting our curated list of Manila’s best mooncakes this year. You’ll find everything from traditional and iconic, to modern flavors. Have fun shopping!
