durian burps
Newish SE Asian restaurant nearby. Coco. Malaysian etc. food. Everything I've had there has been good and interesting. Today noticed that amoung their fruit drinks they have durian shakes. I'm still a relative newbie with durian, having had it 'fresh' (how can something be called fresh when it is best eaten ripe from the tree but instead is frozen and shipped by boat around the planet, thawed during handling, refrozen at the store, defrosted again for eating) a couple of times, in Thai dessert puddings a couple of times and ice cream and dried in chips like fried banana chips.

Going down, the taste was mild. I guess due to being so cold, smoothie style. Walking home I started burping (so very full from big plate of Mee Siam: kinda like Singaphore noodles except without the curry powder) and still now an hour later I taste the durian more than when I first at it.

It's still good too.

the onion!

Today's shake was the first time I noticed the oniony aftertaste. [burp] Yum. Right.

What you have there looks pretty fresh. Trip to Thailand or?

A friend mauled one open at a party once. I tried, really, I did, but the smell combined with the wet bread dough texture almost made me lose my stomach. Not ever trying it again unless it's in a hard candy form.

durian chips

Crispy sugared chip form is the most easily palatable form I've found so far. Those were dead on good. All other forms have just been, "erm, interesting" for me. I will try truly fresh when I have an opportunity. There are some foods which I didn't like until I've had a really good version of it.

The slim you you're showing in this user pic and some other recent ones is quite glamorous looking.
