The best time to start buy­ing moon­cakes from ho­tels is early to mid-au­gust – most will have their pro­mo­tions out by then and will of­fer early bird and bulk pur­chase dis­counts. You can also spec­ify a col­lec­tion date.

Be­sides ho­tels, many Chinese restau­rants like Tai Thong and Dragon-i, as well as su­per­mar­kets and lo­cal bak­eries will also have moon­cake pro­mo­tions.

Moon­cakes can be kept for a few months and the yolk­less moon­cakes are sup­posed to be tastier if you leave them for longer as the flavours have time to ‘set­tle’. Also, eat moon­cakes slowly to en­joy the rich­ness – they aren’t Dori­tos to be snacked on by the hand­ful.
