Most notably celebrated throughout China, Vietnam and other parts of Asia, the Mid-Autumn Festival (or ‘Moon Festival’) marks the harvest season for many ethnic groups throughout the region.
And while you can expect to see many traditional activities throughout the month leading up to the festival (the main day is September 24th), the main food item that is most closely associated with this fun and colorful celebration is, of course, the mooncake! And if you happen to be in Bangkok, you’ll find plenty of these sweet and savory treats at Zing Bakery, as we hold our very own mooncake festival from Aug 9 – 24 September.
At Zing, these pastry snacks come in a variety of different flavors, including green tea, chocolate, coconut, red bean and lotus seed. If you’re feeling more adventurous (and your nose can take it), you can also try our ‘monthong durian mooncake’, and, for something even more pungent, the ‘monthong durian with egg’! These are all priced individually at THB 118. However, as only one of these mooncakes is normally never enough, you can also save by buying a 4-piece box at THB 788 or 2 pieces with a kids box at THB 488.
We also have a rather tasty mooncake promotion if you’re buying in bulk: Receive a 10% and free delivery when you purchase 50 boxes (applied to both 4-piece with box and 2-piece with kids box)!
You can find Zing Bakery located on the ground floor of Centara Grand at CentralWorld.
