New mooncake fillings for 2021 Mid-Autumn Festival: CBD and chocolate, caviar, custard – there's even some for dogs

Yung Kee, Chilli Fagara, cannabidiol, Dominique Ansel, plant-based

Every year, Chinese chefs in Hong Kong come up with creative new mooncake flavours. We round up the most notable offerings for the 2021 Mid-Autumn Festival.

In 2020, the Royal Caviar Club came up with an intriguing savoury mooncake with shaved truffle, lobster meat and caviar. This year, their offering is simpler and more delicious – a mochi-style mooncake containing six grams (0.2 ounces) of Imperial Ossetra caviar, and a filling of either cream cheese or Madagascan vanilla. A six-piece set, with three of each flavour, is priced at HK$680 (US$87).

Roast goose restaurant Yung Kee in Central on Hong Kong Island has lotus seed paste mooncakes, but this year introduces two new flavours: mixed nuts with Chinese ham, and green bean paste with double yolks. Get one of each, packaged together, for HK$398.

Chilli Fagara, a Sichuan restaurant also in Central, is spicing things up with chilli chocolate mochi mooncakes at HK$98 for two – but they are only available for dine-in customers. Order these and you will get chilli-spiked plain chocolate ice cream, with a layer of crunchy taro, enveloped in a soft mochi casing.

French-American pastry chef Dominique Ansel has made Hongkongers yearn for New York thanks to mooncakes packaged in a globe containing landmarks from the Big Apple. The gift set has two new flavours: Earl Grey custard and egg custard. Available at his pastry shop in Harbour City, IFC and H Queens in Central for HK$498.

While Spring Moon at The Peninsula Hong Kong in Kowloon offers its highly sought after egg custard mooncakes every year, its boutique in the basement presents two new flavours for 2021 – walnut and fig egg custard, and date and lotus seed paste – for HK$648 for four of each flavour.
