There are only about 2 weeks left until the Mid-Autumn Festival and at this time, many people have begun to shop for baked goods and plastic cakes to fully celebrate Tet.
At the present time, there are countless confectionery companies, hotels or even famous coffee brands that have launched diverse and attractive moon cake flavors. However, many people still find the taste of traditional mooncakes at old shops in Hanoi. And if you are also part of the “old team”, or simply want to change your taste during this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, visit the following famous traditional mooncake shops in Hanoi.
1. Bao Phuong Mooncake Shop
Every Mid-Autumn Festival comes, passing through Thuy Khue’s small street, we see a long line of people queuing up to a simple and rustic shop, which is Bao Phuong Mooncake Shop. The reason why many people don’t mind queuing, even waiting for hours, is because Bao Phuong’s mooncakes are always of high quality, with a bold traditional mooncake flavor.
Over a long time, the shop’s baked goods and cakes have never been in a bad shape. Thanks to that, Hanoi people still believe in choosing Bao Phuong’s products every Mid-Autumn Festival.

2. Ba Dan Mooncake Shop
With the 6x and 7x generations, Ba Dan moon cake must be a name that is not strange. Nowadays, Ba Dan mooncake shop is still very popular with Hanoi people because of its unique flavor but it is equally simple and familiar. In addition to mixed cakes, Ba Dan shop also produces mooncakes filled with green beans and salted eggs to satisfy the taste of many diners.

3. Phuong Soat Mooncake Shop
Although located on the 2nd floor of an old house on Hang Chieu Street, Phuong Soat Bakery still attracts a large number of customers who come to buy baked goods and flexible cakes every Mid-Autumn Festival. The mooncakes here are made very skillfully by the hands of craftsmen, without the intervention of machines.
Even the shop still uses old, rustic wooden molds to create moon cakes with traditional patterns. If you like carp-shaped cakes or turtle-shaped cakes like the old days, this is also the place to buy them.

Ninh Huong Bakery is also an ideal choice for diners who are loyal to the taste of traditional moon cakes. Products at Ninh Huong are considered to have a moderate sweetness, easily pleasing even the most demanding diners.
In addition to mooncakes with mixed fillings, Ninh Huong Bakery also updates many new flavors such as longan lotus, green beans with melon seeds or most recently, trendy matcha. However, despite the reform and renovation, the shop still retains the tradition of putting quality first, the ingredients are carefully and carefully selected.
