1. Swatow Seafood
Yes, Swatow Seafood has an e-store, and even better, they’re offering baked mooncakes to quell your cravings. Celebrated for their dim sum, Swatow seafood is now putting their magic touches on mooncake flavours such as Crispy Orh Nee with Single Yolk and Mini Flakey Purple Potato Paste from just S$25 for four pieces.
Be ready to bask in its flakey glory—a satisfying crumble that’s evident of Swatow’s baking prowess. Once you hit the core, be sure to snack on a healthy bite so you get equal parts yolk and orh nee paste. This is a confection that’ll have you eating out of your hands quite literally, but oh, is the reward oh-so-worth-it.
What makes their mooncakes special is that they omit the use of artificial colouring, with less sugar, and no preservatives, making it a healthier option. For those who enjoy less traditional flavours, there’s even Mini Flakey Chocolate Paste and Mini Flakey Durian Paste to excite you, so no one’s left out.
Packed in a beautifully decorated box that can serve double-duty for a mini chest of drawers after you’ve wolfed down your mooncakes, Swatow Seafood’s baked mooncakes aren’t only a toothsome treat but will have your friends and family looking for novel ways to upcycle this charming box.

2. Gin Thye
Durian lovers, here’s one especially for you; Gin Thye, rated as #1 best-seller of mooncakes on Qoo10 is offering limited quantities of their Mao Shan Wang Snowskin Mooncake (S$39.90 for a box of four). Lovingly handmade, these gems are filled with 100% pure durian flesh, created delicately with the expertise of over 50 years. Call us biased, but it’s been a while since we were left this impressed by a durian mooncake.
Bittersweet and luscious, the mooncake simply melted on the tongue, begging us to reach for multiple slices. The skin is fine and almost veil-thin, so you won’t be wasting precious time fighting against a gummy shell.
Also, while stocks last, you’ll enjoy a complimentary packet of Premium White Skin Durian Mochi (10 pieces) to complete your durian feast. These were polished off almost too fast; bite-sized and ridiculously scrumptious, you’ll be so glad to bag yourself a box of Gin Thye’s mooncakes—even if you’re only here for their mochi.
With a historied business of creating mouth-watering kueh and cookies since 1964, you know you’re in good hands when taking a hearty bite out of these durian delights.

3. King of Kings
Just like its name, King of Kings touts some of the best mooncakes stuffed with the king of fruits for all you durian fanatics to revel in. Each hefty piece is adorned with gold flakes for the royal treatment, and once sliced right through, you’ll be greeted with creamy, aromatic durian paste.
This season, get your hands on their Wang Zhong Wang Snowskin Mooncakes (S$58.80 for four pieces) that boast the King of Kings’ emblem proudly. One bite of this and you’ll quickly learn why it’s a favourite up-and-coming durian mooncake brand that’s gotten the media abuzz with only great things to say.
The skin is chewy enough to lend a satisfying bite, while the oozy durian flesh really hits the spot with its alluring sweetness. You’ll want to add this to your cart pronto before you get hit with a serious case of FOMO.

4. Yong Sheng
Mooncakes can’t possibly get any more colourful than Yong Sheng’s Colour of Autumn Mooncake (S$26.90 for a box of four, U.P S$36.90) that looks almost too pretty to eat. In a stunning box that we’re confident you’ll want to upcycle for all your precious knick knacks, are four coloured mooncakes dressed in yellow, black, green, and pink.
Among the four flavours, the Gula Melaka and Salted Egg Yolk are the true standouts—departing from tradition in one of the most innovative flavours of the season. Otherwise, the Gingko Black Sesame adds a touch of modernity to the classic savoury staples we’re used to.
Weighing in at 170g each, these mooncakes are a hearty, robust choice that we’re confident the whole family will enjoy.

5. House of Seafood
Ever heard of crab meat-filled mooncakes? Well, you’re about to. House of Seafood is stepping to the challenge of creating a novel presentation of mooncakes with its Snow Skin Crab Meat Mooncake (S$21.80 for four pieces, U.P. S$48.80).
The snowskin mooncakes encase four different flavours—Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Salted Egg Crab, and Mao Shan Wang Durian. If snowskin mooncakes don’t tickle your fancy, they also have Traditional Crab Meat Mooncake (S$21.80 for four pieces, U.P. S$48.80) for your perusal. Each box of four contains three flavours, Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, and Salted Egg Crab, in a baked mooncake shell that’s sure to satiate you when you’re having a case of the munchies.
They all sound positively yummy, and we’re honestly quite curious how their savoury flavours turn out, considering the restaurant has been voted for having the ‘Best Pepper Crab’ in Singapore before. If you’d love to give your favourite crab recipe in a bite-sized edible a try—yay, to no messy hands—then House of Seafood’s a great option for you.
6. Rive Gauche
Moving away from the savoury, chocoholics like me will appreciate Rive Gauche’s Signature Snow Skin Guanaja Mooncake (S$88.20 for eight pieces, U.P. S$98). Perfectly sized for a two-bite portion—in which I won’t need to share—the mooncakes feature Guanaja dark chocolate 70% cocoa, a signature Guanaja Truffle Chocolate centre, diced almonds, enveloped in a white lotus paste.
Think of it as an elevated Ferrero Rocher. And can we direct our attention to the Limited Edition Rive Gauche Gift Tin Box, for a moment? It’s an adorable keepsake that will do well to store small toys or sewing essentials.
I reckon this mooncake will be a hit with the kids, so be sure to set some aside for yourself if you want to ensure you get a piece or two.
