Thai Durian Sale at the Wellcome Supermarket in Causeway Bay

We had a crazy day at IKEA. But that’s usually how it is on a Saturday afternoon. The only comfort I had was that a good 30% of the shoppers were stuck at Sogo’s “Thankful Week” madhouse sale. 

I’d popped in to Wellcome (block between Sogo and IKEA) just before our trip to IKEA to buy a pack of chocolate milk for the small person. While in the queue to pay, I spotted an indoor  durian stall. The staff were busy ripping up the durian husks and re-packaging the flesh into plastic boxes. 

It didn’t smell at all…“you can only do this with Thai durian, I thought. 

Sure enough, it was Thai durian that looked pretty good. The flesh was a rich golden hue and the packaging looked robust. Those packers did a good job. 


The lack of any aroma or scent was a deal breaker for me. I’m a nose-y person and if it doesn’t smell good then I’m much less inclined to try it. 


It was the first time that I’ve seen a sign in the supermarket warning customers about the spikes.. Though it’s so small and below line of sight that I doubt anyone would really notice.
