If you are visiting Hong Kong, try the annual festive food mooncakes in celebration of the Moon Festival (or Mid-Autumn Festival) which fall on 3 October this year. It is the custom here that moon cakes are sold well before the festival. So from now until 3 October, you have plenty of opportunity to have a sampling. Don’t miss the new style mooncakes made with ice cream with all sorts of fillings, which are Hong Kong’s invention.
The bakery that creates the new style mooncakes is called Taipan , whose branches are located across HK, including inside the MTR stations. Because they are so popular, now many bakeries also sell the non-traditional mooncakes, with creation of all sorts of flavors. But coming to new style mooncakes, Taipan is still the leading brand.
