A durian feast of Musang King and Black Thorn Durians!
We Malaysians are blessed to have an abundance of the king of fruits, Durians! The durian season is upon us as I write this article. Did you know the top two variants, the Musang King and Black Thorn Durians are back in town? I’m a super big fan of durians, hence it was with an elated feeling that I chomped down on some really good durians from Durian King TTDI recently. Read on below!

It wasn’t my first time feasting on their durians at Durian King TTDI, hence I knew exactly where to head to. Located in a safe area at the outdoor parking lot of Pasar Besar Tmn Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, there’s ample parking spots for everyone who has a craving for durians. If for any reasons you still feel hungry (very unlikely??!!) after a durian feast, there’s some really nice Nasi Lemaks and local noms just beside.

Black Thorn Durian
If you don’t know yet, the Black Thorn variant is one of a kind, the top kind. To get it in season is not easy, and only a couple of places serves these delightful type. Prices for these varies daily, so be sure to check out their prices on Durian King TTDI’s Facebook page.

When seen from the back, there's a distinct star-fruit shape to the Black Thorn Durian. Other than that it does look rounder than your usual durian. In fact, each fruit has a rounded look to it, check it out in the pictures below. Okay, enough of that, let's open it up shall we?

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.

I always love some good ol’ Musang King Durians!
Yes please, my all-time favourite, one which I will almost always choose without fail if the price is right. 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.

|I need one of this right now!|
During our feast at Durian King TTDI that night, we had our fair share of the Musang King Durians, and I’m super satisfied with the quality and sweetness of each fruit. 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.

Want some Chilled Durians instead?
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! Together with these chilled durians, we savoured their yummy Durian Cendol as well, which is pretty good, albeit a tad sweet for me.
