Durian is a love-hate relationship either you love it alot or you just hate it, as I am a durian lover of course I love it alot and looking forward for this once a year affair, some they just hate it so much as unable to bear the smell which is too strong for them to bear and I even have friends that smells it, they feel like puking. As is only available in Asian’s countries especially in Malaysia and some of its neighboring countries of course I love this fruit alot.
The season already started bout 6-7 weeks ago and now reaching its peak as one of the famous spot to get Durian Buffet is located in the heart of SS2 – directly behind BHP petrol station you will get to hunt for at least 5-6 stalls. According to my friend, this stall was the only stall that operate in the area few years ago as with firsts of its kind to offer buffet style and then it had gain popularity among local crowd, more stalls come in to seize the opportunity. So we decided to go to its original stall which is the most crowded known as Durians SS2
For local type of durians, we are pampered with a lot of choices in types of flavours, durian meat texture, smooth, sticky, yellow colour meat, white colour, cream colour also with famous in the market now is Raja Kunyit or known as Musang King, Udang Merah and many more.
This would be my first time coming here to hunt for the buffet style as my brother told me previously that he had was a month ago, the buffet cost him RM25 but he had quite a satisfying one, as last night I went the price had went down abit with 2 choices to choose from:
RM 9 / RM 15 as what is the difference is that the quality of durian, of course we went after the RM15 which is not much different.
Even they have a chart for you to choose that filled with description or what kind of texture and flavour you are expecting . .
This is called D13 with yellowish solid skin, once bit it, its a bit sticky and very nice in aroma that burst in your mouth, that turn out the seed is pretty small and its sweet in taste.
This is another type of durian which I asked the guy and comes out a type of it which I havent heard before. .
Well, I would say for RM15 buffet we paid and with the quality we got, me and my friends are very satisfied with its quality, texture of the durian meat and the taste. If ask me is it worth, I would say super worth and we are planning to go again. – highly recommended. .
Once thing I was told by random durian seller that next year they going to increase in price as China will be importing our durians. . 🙁
