Mooncakes in Metro Vancouver 2023

  • By admin

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival is just around the corner. Family and friends celebrate the festivals with mooncakes. Mooncakes are rich pastries with various fillings, including sweet and savory options. They are often enjoyed with tea and are symbolic of unity and togetherness, as families and friends gather to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. We are excited to share with you a list of places in Metro Vancouver that have moon cakes!


Teapurin is offering snowskin mooncakes made with 3 Japanese teas flown directly from Japan: Matcha from Uji Kyoto, Houjicha from Uji Kyoto, and Kocha (Japanese black tea used to make royal milk tea) from Shimane prefecture. Their snowskin mooncakes contain a rich tea-infused nama-choco core inside strong tea custard, wrapped over mochi skin. From making the custard to steaming the mochi skin, everything is made fresh from scratch without preservatives on the day of pickup, so Teapurin hopes customers get a chance to see what freshly made snowskin mooncakes taste like! The prices are $63 for a 6-piece mooncake gift set, $45 for 4 pieces, and $23 for 2 pieces.

Rice Cake Master

The innovative team behind Rice Cake Master is thrilled to announce the return of the snow skin mooncakes. The Jade Mooncake Collection features the iconic festive delicacy adorned with a soft, mochi-like glutinous skin, resembling the exquisite brilliance of jade gemstones. 

The Mid-Autumn Festival holds a special place for all Chinese individuals. It’s a time of gratitude for the abundant summer harvest, a chance to cherish loved ones, and an occasion to marvel at the grandeur of the moon when it’s at its fullest and brightest. This year, the festival falls on September 29, marked by feasting, family reunions, and the exchange of mooncakes.

Snow Skin Mooncakes exemplify the imaginative spirit of the rice cake masters. The fusion of traditional Chinese mooncakes and mochi has gained familiarity around the world with mooncake flavors paired with the delightful bounce of its glutinous covering.

This year, the Jade Mooncake Collection by Rice Cake Master or 南大門翡翠冰皮月餅 is $45 each and contains four mooncakes in four different flavours:

  • Matcha Red Bean Cranberry 抹茶紅豆蔓越莓冰皮月餅
