5 places to find the Moon Cake in Milan

The traditional Chinese cake to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival

5 places to find the Moon Cake in Milan The traditional Chinese cake to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival

At the beginning of October, one of the traditional Chinese festivals is celebrated: the Mid-Autumn Festival. After the Chinese New Year, it is perhaps the most important fest as a moment of celebration of the culture and union with the family.

This festival is also named "Moon Festival" because, according to popular beliefs and tradition, it is the day of the year when the Full Moon appears bigger and brighter in the sky. That's where the name of traditional cake, the so-called Moon Cake, comes from.

Especially in the Milanese district of Paolo Sarpi, the China Town of the city where many Chinese and oriental shops, restaurants and markets are located, but also in other areas of the city, it is possible to find the moon cakes, sold exclusively during the time of the year when the festival takes place. 

From bars to restaurants, from pastry shops to mini markets, nss G-Club discovered 5 places in Milan where you can taste the traditional Chinese dessert. Definitely worth a try!
