Durian – King of Fruits | Petaling Jaya, Selangor Malaysia

Opened Durian

 

Named “King of fruits,” this thoroughly thorn-husked fruit is not for beginner foodies by any means. With multiple species of the fruit, there are variants of flavor/texture/aromatics that people swear by; typically has a creamy custard-like texture that is accompanied by its sweet/rich flavor profiles. At least, this is how I see it; there are others that definitely do not share my views (meaning I don’t have to share my Durian ūüôā )

Look out for the durian fruit carts/shacks at certain locations when Durian season is prime (usually between June and September).

A cool little hole in the wall, or in this case, a corridor. From what I hear, the thing to get is the Nasi Kandar. I mean, it’s in the name after all! haha. But we were there to have a quick drink/bite. Enter, Teh Tarik and Roti Chanai.

The best char siu mee I’ve ever had. Yep, a bold statement. Recalled eating that bowl of bbq pork & noodles; each bite sent surges of pure happiness. It was a special meal shared with my dad and uncle.

Everytime without fail, when we go to Penang, we go to the¬†Gurney Drive Hawker Center to eat. It’s just so much fun watching all the people running around buying a dish here and there. It’s actually quite amazing how the hawkers keep track of what goes to who. Highly recommend going here if you have the chance. Really cool place to go eat; huge variety.

Nothing like a name to entice you to go. In our case, it keeps us coming back.

While searching for the address, I noted that people rated this eatery with average or slightly negative things; e.g. overpriced, not as good as it once was,, etc. It’s important to note that there are a few locations, but I’m pretty sure this is the original and they may have been talking about the new location. Although I cannot speak for it’s price, as we were converting USD to RM, we were not as sticker shocked. I definitely think the food could have been better, but it was delicious nonetheless. My favorite was probably the fried meehon. Light and airy with the proper amount of wok hai.

End of the World (information gathered 8/2012)
From what I could find, the location should be at the corner of Jalan Hassan Abbas and Teluk Bahang in Penang.

Parking
The front of the restaurant looks like it can hold 5-10 cars at the most. It seems like a very quiet area, doesn’t seem like parking will be a problem.

A really fun, but slightly timely trip up the mountain side to reach the next location. This place rests 360 meters above sea level (1180-ish miles) on a 25 acre plot of land that is home to 250 types of fruits! Something about the elevation and scenery made this food experience ever more special.
