Small, plump, rich, and round to symbolize the full moon, mooncakes are a unique treat to try in Hong Kong in the fall. They are specifically made during the Mid-Autumn Festival, which occurs in either September or October. The cakes are shared between close friends and families and represent a culinary tradition for one of the most important holidays in the region. Mooncakes are extremely labor-intensive to make. They are commonly sweet, with a custard inside that can be created from a multitude of different flavorings. Sliced to share, the outside flaky crusts are intricately decorated with Chinese characters, and it’s best to try them underneath the shining, full harvest moon with a side of Chinese tea.
