Share Article

Whimsical mooncake reunions await with four handcrafted baked mooncake flavours from modern upscale Cantonese restaurant, 5 ON 25 at Andaz Singapore. For Andaz Singapore Mooncake 2023, you can savour two new flavours, Citrus Surprise and Gula Galore, created by the hotel’s Pastry Chef Francis Wong, and two other all-time favourites by the restaurant’s Chinese Head Chef Lim Hong Lih. The mooncakes are housed in a two-tier box, wrapped with a playful bespoke design by homegrown lifestyle brand, Binary Style, established by twin sisters and trained architects, Santhi and Sari Tunas.

Andaz Singapore Mooncake 2023 – Design Concept

Inspired by the bustling two-story shophouse scene in the hotel’s neighbourhood, Kampong Glam, the simple yet elegant shophouse design features defined windows and minimal ornamentation. It is a close representation of an early shophouse style used from the 1840s to the 1900s. Encased in eye-catching hues of green, pink and blue, the box opens up to unveil two inner drawers, wrapped in a beautiful geometric pattern of leaves of breadfruit trees, which are in abundance in the area.

“This partnership encompasses our shared passions for architecture, Singapore’s heritage and nature. The neighbourhood encapsulates all of these elements, and the shophouses form the canvas of the design because of its timeless appeal and historical significance,” says Santhi Tunas. 

Andaz Singapore Mooncake 2023 – New Flavours

Making a debut this year is a new sweet and savoury Citrus Surprise mooncake, which displays Chef Francis’ creative prowess in experimentation. Inspired by Kampong Glam’s melting pot of cultures, Chef Francis shines the spotlight on an interesting trio of ingredients – caramel, miso and yuzu. The umami of the miso cuts through the rich caramel paste, while the addition of yuzu white chocolate lends an uplifting zing and citrusy aroma.

Another must-try is the Gula Galore mooncake. Chef Francis infuses smooth lotus paste with rich caramel-like Gula Melaka and adds high-quality pecan nuts for an extra layer of crunch and texture. “This treat caters to all as it is subtly mellow and is highly addictive on first bite. Its flavour is also inspired by traditional Malay kuehs, which are commonly found in the vicinity,” says Chef Francis.

Using a traditional recipe by Chef Lim and back by popular demand are the 5 ON 25 Signature Tea Blend and Silver Lotus++. The former offers a fragrant medley of Osmanthus, Oolong and Pu’er tea notes, while the latter comprises white lotus paste and two golden egg yolks at the core encased in the golden baked crust. These mooncakes are perfect for purists alongside a cup of tea.
