Where To Buy Mooncakes In Johor Bahru?

Where To Buy Mooncakes In Johor Bahru?

The Mid-Autumn Festival is just around the corner, which means that it’s once again time to indulge in mooncakes.

However, these little calorie bombs don’t just take a hit on your waistline – they’re pretty pricey as well. A piece of mooncake can cost upwards of S$12, so if you can finish a whole mooncake in a single seating (or worse, have ravenous relatives coming over to visit), you might be racking up a huge food bill this season.

A more cost-effective way to celebrate the gastronomic pleasures of Mooncake Festival is to head over to Johor Bahru, where your Singaporean dollar can stretch a lot further. Here are 8 places you can get your mooncake fix this year:

1. Kam Lun Tai

Kam Lun Tai doesn’t have a standalone shop, but you can find them in participating retail outlets across Malaysia. While their gift sets aren’t exactly cheap, their Moon Palace Premium Gift Set (RM135.68 / S$44.87) and Classic Premium Gift Set (RM188 / S$62.18) offer designs that are more reminiscent of a tastefully-made cosmetics drawer, rather than a regular gift box.

2. Lavender

At RM13.50 (S$4.46) to RM18 (S$5.95) a mooncake, Lavender offers more affordable mooncakes than the other places on this list. Their gift sets come in very plain packaging, but at only RM45 (S$14.88) for the cheapest gift set, it’s hard to complain.
