Packaged durian cake from Thailand

In the basement supermarket Jason’s in Mongkok’s Langham Place, the only durian related item available was this.


I thought the location was a little strange. These durian cakes were on a shelf next to other dried fruit products like raisins, dried strawberries and blueberries, even apple purée.

Well I suppose if you’re looking for dried fruit it could also mean you’re looking for durian :).

Durian Chocolate Fix at Just Heavenly, Pavilion KL

If you must have durian off season, you might as well indulge yourself with a little chocolate too.

Just Heavenly doesn’t pretend. It’s completely chocolate covered, you can’t even see the durian. It’s also got an extra layer of glass over it (its also in the cake chiller display) as its such valuable stinky stuff.

As Malaysians always say “it’s a bit expensive”, at RM11.90 per piece. I didn’t buy it so I can’t tell you if it’s good.

Durian Desserts from the Goodwood Hotel, Singapore

TW and WW were in Singapore for a visit at the start of March and when they came by to visit mum, they brought some durian desserts from the Goodwood Hotel where they had tea the week before. They had ordered the durian pancake during a high tea and thought that the durian was authentic and addictive. So, it was time to try the rest of the durian selections.

First up, durian puffs and durian crepe. Unfortunately it was cold (bought frozen) so the flavor was quite muted.

Durian Puffs and Durian Crepe

Then the durian mousse cake. Quite soft, cold and muted flavors too.
