Durians, A Thorny Delight

My lunch yesterday

Durians, you either love it or hate it. It's smell is overpowering and lingering and many a public places banned the fruit from its premises. I've heard it described as 'unwashed toilet' before. 

I'm not big on the smell, but I love the taste and texture of a smooth, creamy, slightly bitter durian. I don't like the sweet ones. And one stall in Kepong has such durians, whose quality rivals that of the premium, branded 'Musang King', at a non-premium price of RM7/kg. The seeds are small and flat, yielding lots of creamy flesh....yumm....
