This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 15…yes, three days from now! So, buckle in for some mouth-watering shots of mooncakes in the making. In Little Saigon, Huong Binh Restaurant makes their mooncakes from scratch, filling each one with a sweet and savory mix then molding each one by hand before backing them into a golden brown.

For the uninitiated, mooncakes are a Mid-Autumn Festival, aka Moon Festival, treat which are shared and eaten among friends and families. They represent unity and togetherness, and come in a variety of flavors. More traditionally, there’s red bean paste and lotus seed, these days you can also find mooncakes filled with mixed fruits and nuts, taro, mung bean, and more.
