For the month of August and September, the durian cream puff is the highlight at the Rasa Deli of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa (GPS: 5.48000,100.25472), Batu Feringgi, Penang. Even since the first batch of durian cream puffs made their debut at the Rasa Deli, the dainty delicacies have been literally flying off the bakery shelves so quickly.
In Malaysia, durian season starts in June and ends in August. For those who missed it, there are still few options: 1) Get all season lower grade durians, 2) Eat durian candy/cake instead, 3) Try Durian Wrapz (RM5.00) made of D13 at Lucky Dessert.
As mentioned, June to August is Durian session. My colleagues and I are durian fan. We dared enough to travel to Balik Pulau just for durian lunch. The first trip was on 3-Jun-2010, in which we traveled to Balik Pulau Wet Market by two cars. There was a durian stall called 118 which was recommended by friend’s friend.
Those travel around Penang should see (and smell) something special along the road recently, that is, it is durian session (usually from May – August). Normal day, I won’t dare to enjoy it as it will be the WMD in my office. Last Friday, Steven Goh, Criz Lai, FoOd PaRaDiSe, Cariso, and I had a “durian fiesta” at Sungai Batu which is near to Teluk Kumbar, which was invited by the owner’s pretty daughter :love:
