Durian desperation in Seoul, Korea

My friend JH is a durian lover. I still remember one day in Singapore many years ago when we had copious amounts of white wine at the Wine Room, then excellent durian at Dempsey car park. We were so full (and she was mildly tipsy) that the chilli crab for dinner went untouched for several hours until the effects of full/ drunkenness wore off.

She went to Seoul to visit her parents over Christmas and sent me this picture.

  
She said that they bought a whole frozen Monthong durian from the Shinsegae supermarket in Myeoungdong. The defrosting took an entire day then they were able to peel the husk back as gently as an ripe banana. 

For less than USD30, she reckoned she got a bargain in Seoul and said it was delicious (well, at least it wasn’t disappointing).

Head over there if you need a durian fix!

One thought on “Durian desperation in Seoul, Korea

  1. Here in Cairns we also use to see frozen durian in the supermarkets, but no more, sad when 1 needs a fix.
    I will be getting my fix in Feb as there will be many in Bali, wont be long now.
