Durian parties have reached a whole new level of fun, thanks to DurianBB, a brand that has travelled through Asia, starting in Hong Kong in 2015, then moving across mainland China, Macau and Singapore before finally reaching Malaysia, where the King of Fruits has long reigned supreme.
DurianBB Park in Imbi takes the durian-tasting concept popularised in Hong Kong and scales it to an experience that showcases different types of Malaysian durians. The venue promises five varietals from orchards that DurianBB owns in this country, with fresh batches coming in everyday.
You'll begin with first durian (marked with a star), a Kampung Durian cultivated in Pahang, with a pleasant chew and mellow flavour. It's a safe choice, particularly for beginners to durian.
Next, the D101 is more moist, with a creamy softness, still moderate in flavour. You could easily suck the fibre off the seed.
The D13 is sweeter, with a lingering aftertaste that's noticeably more pronounced than the earlier durians.
The D24, or XO durian, might be the firmest in texture, endowed with a pungent scent and a taste that enjoyably mingles the bitter and the sweet.
The finale, D197, is local favourite Musang King - a potent, strong-tasting durian with a bitter complexity; it's the one that every enthusiast seeks out.
All in all, it's a memorable way to sample five durians at a reasonable rate and to bolster our understanding of this one-of-a-kind fruit.
For those traveling, DurianBB also promises freeze-dried durian products to take with you, with a vacuum-packing service to preserve the state of durian.
DurianBB Park also offers durian buffet catering services, suitable for offices or for small parties. And if you wish, you can always organise a durian buffet at DurianBB Park by request!
Many thanks to DurianBB for having us here.
