Falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a celebration with family, colourful lanterns and irresistible mooncakes. Mooncakes are traditional Chinese pastries eaten and enjoyed during the Mid-Autumn Festival. This is one of my favourite festival as I get to spend time with my family, indulge in delectable mooncakes while drinking some Chinese tea.
This year, mark the annual Mid-Autumn Festival with freshly-made mooncakes by D’Bun. Featuring a wide range of traditional and snowskin flavours to choose from, D’Bun aims to produce quality food for our local palate. Situated in the heart of Joo Chiat Road, I’ve heard many notable reviews of their freshly baked paos and have seen many travelling specially to the East in search of the bakery’s finest bakes.
D’Bun’s mooncakes are baked fresh using the finest ingredients and are preservatives free. The mooncakes sit prettily in an elegant red chest-like box which were artfully presented.
Their traditional mooncakes come with either a single or double yolk. It won my heart with its fragrant crust which boasts a crumbly and buttery texture – an indulgence when eaten together with the classic egg yolk and smooth white lotus paste.
Singaporeans love durians and D’Bun knows how to please its customers with their D24 and Mao Shan Wang Mooncakes. This premium classic mooncake boasts an intense flavour with a creamy centre, boasting just the right tinge of sweetness. Durian lovers will especially enjoy feasting into these savoury favourites.
These colourful gems were so delicately-crafted! The Blueberry Cheese is a flavour worth trying, it is just like indulging in a blueberry cheesecake! Another flavour which stood out is the Coffee Mocha. Sweet, luscious and with a strong aroma of coffee and chocolate coffee centre, this an ideal choice for both chocolate and coffee lovers.
One of D’Bun’s new flavour for snowskin mooncakes is the Umeshu Cranberry Chocolate where Plume Wine is infused in the snowskin itself, filled with white lotus paste and a milk chocolate cranberry centre.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival Everyone! <3
With lots of love,
