Mid-Autumn Festival is a highly regarded tradition celebrated in Singapore. This festival is usually celebrated when the moon is at its fullest and brightest, with people eating mooncakes, drinking tea, and admiring the moon.
Did you say Kombucha Mooncake?
Yes! This year, ForrestBrew has teamed up with Cavemen and Origin Bakehaus to curate a modern twist to traditional Mooncake - replacing salted egg yolk with Kombucha-filled mooncake.
Origin Bakehaus uses kombucha as a healthy alternative to salted egg yolk, which is often seen as an unhealthy snack. The best part? You still taste all the goodness of a traditional mooncake!

What made you want to start your own bakery?
“We all want to do something meaningful, something of your own. When you are younger you want to achieve and do so much but always committed by other things. Now, I’m free to do anything I wish – offer mentoring, consultancy, working on different project. So I feel so enjoyable and I love what I am doing.”
What can we expect from Kombucha Mooncake?
“I love the tanginess of Kombucha which I think it pairs very nicely with the mooncake. When you taste them, you taste the sweetness of the lotus paste yet a very slight tanginess of the Kombucha. Overall the taste is not too sweet.”
