The Mid-Autumn Festival began over 3,000 years ago in China involving moon worship. Over the years, the popularity and customs revolving around the holiday shifted, and with it came the tradition of eating the most popular Mid-Autumn festival food: mooncakes. In celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, Yauatcha Houston will offer mooncakes from Sunday, September 1 to Saturday, September 14.

Celebrate with our Mid-Autumn Festival Mooncakes

Our signature Mooncake pastry is filled with a thick, golden Cantonese-style custard. In Chinese culture, mooncakes’ round shape represents a sense of completeness and unity. During the festival, families tend to share mooncakes together or gift them to their loved ones. Sharing this dessert with others symbolizes your love and well-wishes for them. At Yauatcha, we want to bring that sense of unity to our customers and encourage them to bring their loved ones to our restaurant. Here, they can indulge in some mooncakes together. To join in the celebration, order our Egg custard mooncakes while dining in the restaurant or consider an order to take home and share through our patisserie counter. Each box of mooncakes will be presented in a luxury pink foiled sleeve and come with six individual servings inside. Our boxes make it easy to share in this time of celebration and gratitude.

The Perfect Pair

Typically, mooncakes are also accompanied by tea during the Mid-Autumn Festival. With 24 different kinds of tea, Yauatcha Houston makes it easy to find the perfect tea to sip on while enjoying our Mid-Autumn Festival mooncakes. Our hot tea flavors range from light and floral to complex and robust. Our tea is presented in pots, making it easy to share. From September 1 through September 14, we encourage you to share some mooncakes, tea, and quality time with your loved ones at Yauatcha Houston for the Mid-Autumn Festival.
