Musang King Durian & Black Thorn Feast @ Durian King TTDI / Bukit Bintang

Musang King / Black Thorn Durian FEAST!


It's the Durian season. Two of the top variants, the Musang King & Black Thorn Durians are in town. How about a feast on these delicious durians. I had the chance to really chomp down on some really good durians from Durian King Bukit Bintang recently, and my, it was good! Check out what they have to offer at their outlet in Bukit Bintang below.

Now I'm sure you've heard of Durian King as they have been operating their first branch at TTDI for quite a while now. It's with great anticipation then that a whole bunch of us went over to their new branch outlet at Bukit Bintang. Located just behind Shaw Parade, and within walking distance to Berjaya Times Square, it wasn't hard to locate, being in front of the open air carpark along the roadside.

So it's my first time trying out the famed Black Thorn durian, one which I've heard so much about but to get it in season, that's another story. Prices for these varies daily, so be sure to check out their prices, but from what I gathered, mid year is the best time to get these, as it's in season!

Even before opening up our black thorn durians, we were educated on how it looks like on the outside. When seen from the back, there's a distinct star-fruit shape to the fruit. Other than that it does look rounder than your usual durian. Okay, enough of that, let's open it up shall we?

Once the Black Thorn Durian is cracked open, the first thing I noticed was the intense smell and flavour that hit the nose even before biting into its flesh. The colour of the flesh was rather orangey, with some wrinkled complexion (omg, did I use complexion to describe durian?!) It reminds me of a very matured durian, as you can tell from its heavy taste. Even the owner of Durian King told us, the older the tree, the better the taste of these Black Thorn Durians. Personally I find it a tad too heavy flavoured for me, too creamy in fact. 


You must try it!

The taste of the Black Thorn Durian itself started out sweet, which I really like. But as you let the flesh swirl inside your mouth, it starts getting really thick and creamy, with a bitter end note. Not for everyone, as I found the creaminess to be over the top, being too thick. Still, it's pretty good. I like my durians sweet and bitter, so this suits me fine.

Ah, my all-time favourite, one which I will almost always choose without fail if the price is right. The Musang King Durian, "king of durians" in my books. The yellow coloured flesh is just too enticing, and almost all the time I can taste that familiar strong sweet taste of its flesh. It does not run too far from one durian to the other, and that's why I always recommend this than the other types.

Sourced from the best farms in Raub, Pahang, Durian King has brought in the best Musang King Durians there are. Thick flesh, small seeds, sweet tasting durians. What else can one ask for? Transported fresh daily from Raub, Pahang, you can be sure your dose of durians at Durian Kings are the finest there is.

What I found interesting the other day was the fact Durian King has chilled durians in their freezers for sale too. I was told by the owner that lots of folks like to have their durians cold, hence the idea of serving chilled durians straight from the freezer. Good idea indeed.
