I feel ill. The chef here had me try out a chocolate sweet made from durian. The smelliest, most horrid fruit ever. This is actually how he billed it before I tried it. The sweet is now repeating on me and sends waves of the most noctious, sickening gas up my throat and out my nose and nostrils. It is the type of thing that fits so comfortably in the “delicacy” comparment that fools us all into paying a fortune for food nobody else would bother trying since their life doesn’t depend on it.
Here’s a video of someone trying it:
the Thais call it the “King of Fruit”. they are clearly mental.
Hah… I’m in Vietnam at the moment and this stuff is everywhere. They keep telling me it is delicious, but there is no way I am going to try it.
I once saw a man throw a whole Djurian into the air and let it land on his head.
He bled profusely. And smelt of vomit.
I tried it when I was in Thailand. Yes it smells a bit but take a deep breath away from the fruit and then taste and you will be surprised. You cant eat a lot of it but its OK and have had worse tasting apples from shops in Ireland!
Feck it, Mulley you should have caught it on video. I would almost pay to see it. Almost.
yeah – hold your nose, helps a lot … it does taste nice but the smell overpowers the taste and ruins it for you and everyone in your vicinity…
Did nobody tell you that durian is only for real men?
Being part Indonesian there was always some durian in the house when I grew up. Smells vile but tastes delicious (when used in other foodstuffs)…
