The Durian is distinctive for its large size, strong odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. Sometimes the people in southeast Asia called it: ‘king of fruits”. Some people regard the durian as pleasantly fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and revolting. The persistence of its odour has led to the fruit’s banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia.
After getting lost for about 20 minutes, I finally found this dessert place. Apparently it’s hidden behind ruko building complex. You can’t see it from the road side. It’s a small humble place. It’s fit for 30 persons.
First dessert I choose is Chocolove. It’s a bowl of durian fruit with liquid sugar and chocolate milk. The durian taste is so sweet, but the meat is not too thick. They added the ice cubes to the bowl. I think the chocolate milk is mix so well with the strong flavor of durian. I love it!
For second dessert I order Browny Soup. It’s durian fruit with coconut milk and brown/java sugar. The brown sugar is not too sweet, it combined with the saltiness of coconut milk. Sweet flavored sketchy and savory become one…hmmm…I don’t really enjoy this combination. I still choose Chocolove as my favorite.
They also mix durian with assorted ice cream or fruit such as avocado. Price 17 K to 20 K for each portion.
