If it’s at Taste, it’s also gotta be available at CitySuper. In I went to hunt down the durian in Causeway Bay.
It’s right at the front entrance, impossible to miss. Sitting high up on a display bench, whole durians sans cling film beckon. The packaged durians packed in impenetrable stiff plastic wrapping. Not a whiff of any aroma at all.
But the colour looked good.
And the price…? Well, expect to pay at least twice the price for this box of gold at CitySuper.
Mmm looks good….
Pretty funny that they translate it literally as “durian meat“. I suppose “durian flesh” doesn’t sound much better.
