Maybe I’m just feeling deprived. We went for brunch on Sunday to Cafe Malacca at Hotel Jen and ate a bit of every goodie we could find on the menu. I think I’ve pretty much had everything sans prawns (allergy).
When my friend DW handed the menu around again for dessert, I just had to open my mouth and say… “I heard the durian pudding is good but I’ve never tried it…”
Picking up the cue, he immediately offered “want to share?”
No need to ask twice.
There are two durian puddings on the menu. There’s the regular durian pudding, then there is the durian musang king pudding. No brainer which one to choose right?
The dessert cup isn’t very big. But as the spoon is small, you do get approximately 15 mouthfuls of the smooth stuff. The durian has been blended and not a fibre remains. It is sweet but not cloyingly so. It is fragrant but not in a manner that you can smell it before you can taste it.
Durian burps are guaranteed, though it’s not too embarrassingly strong.
For HKD 68, not bad. Especially since we don’t have any of the real stuff to compare it to right now.
Looking forward to my durianic Christmas….it’s only a month away!
