The brand’s signature Mixed Nuts and Jamón Ibérico is back by popular demand. Each bite of this baked mooncake will bring a delicious medley of sweet and savoury flavours.
Be spoilt for choice with Mandarin Orchard Singapore’s selection of delicately handmade mini snow skin mooncakes featuring highlights such as Lychee Martini and Chocolate, and Red Wine Cranberry Paste with Japanese Yuzu and Lemongrass. These refreshingly innovative mooncakes are filled with creamy decadence that is sure to be well received.
Fall back on perennial favourites such as the Double Yolk and White Lotus Paste, with a generous filling of white lotus paste and two flavourful salted egg yolks, bound by a thin golden brown pastry skin.
