I noticed a distinctive odor when I approached my fridge earlier and I immediately knew what was inside. Durians. Pretty soon the kitchen and my living room will start to smell like this fruit. I think most Asians are explicitly familiar with this fruit but for those who doesn’t, this is actually worth trying even if it is just for experience’s sake ^^. It is quite… unique.
How would I describe durians? It smells like rotten eggs, fart, with a hint of banana and another sweet tropical fruit. Very strong… and can stink up the whole room. It almost taste like what it smells too but more fuity. Texture is like…creamy, custard-like, yet dry… kinda like tender chicken. While I use to hate this fruit as a kid, I’ve come to at least be able to eat it now. Still not passionate about it like my parents are though. They LOVE this stuff.
Have you tried durians before? Love it or hate it? (It is usually either/or)
