As the Mid-Autumn Festival approaches, more and more people lined up in front of the stores of time-honored brands in Shanghai to buy mooncakes. The sales of every time-honored brand also entered a peak period.
Huang Renkang, executive chef of a Shanghai time-honored moon cake brand, said that although they have newly launched char siu mooncakes and sweet rice wine moon cakes, meat-stuffed moon cakes are still sold the best. "The meat-stuffed moon cake is also one of the specialties in Shanghai, and people have been deeply impressed by it," said Huang.
This year's Mid-Autumn Festival falls on Sept. 29.
