Moon Cake Festival, or more correctly known as Mid-Autumn Festival is on the 27th September this year

Elderly Chinese grandparents would tell you it’s a time for gazing at the moon and celebrating Autumn harvest… but who are we kidding? It’s all about the Moon Cake!


Here are top spots in NYC to pick your Moon Cakes to celebrate and ring in Autumn… thankfully, no pumpkin, no cinnamon and definitely no strange combinations here – just authentic Moon Cakes from bakery to table.



If you’re in Chinatown, head straight to Lung Moon Bakery

Don’t forget to pick up a dozen egg tarts on your way out… just because

A few blocks down from Lung Moon Bakery is another cult favourite, even if it’s located in Little Italy and not Chinatown. Peanut-filled mochi balls are worth seeking out, and is a great spot for a super cheap and quick breakfast in NYC

Everyone knows Taipan Bakery – but did you know they also have MoonCakes on offer?

It’s a run-of-the-mill Chinese bakery, but it’s definitely a quick stop for emergency Mooncake shoppers
