    Do you like Durian?

    Never mind the smell, but the soft, creamy texture are to die for.

    What say you?

    There are many types of Durian and I enjoy eating the more expensive variety called Mon Tong (Golden Pillow).

    Just don't drink alcohol and whilst eating it as it could kill you.

    durian is tolerable, but i do not understand the hype about it.
    thailand has an abundance of the most amazing, delicious and mostly ridiculously cheap fruits, and it beats me why there is such a fuss about durian.
    huge selection of incredibly cheap thai fruit at the village talaat, and the thais will buy floury, half rotten imported apples at 10 baht each instead of a basketfull of litchees for 5 baht.
    i think the fascination with durian has something to do with the thai's preference for eating stuff that is smelly or rotten, as in pla-raa.
    the more putrid, the more delicious!
    wierd bunch, the thais. (fukkin disgusting too, eating habit wise)

    If it smells rotten to the core then Thais are gonna lap it up, give em a nice juicy strawberry and they'd most likely look at you as if you'd just taken a dump in their hands

    Yep. I like Kradum Thong and Mon Thong, especially when not completely ripe and still have a 'bite'... The smell doesn't bother me; there are far worse smells in Thailand.

    Ah yes the fragrant smell of durian. Always reminds me of my first trip to Thailand. What beautiful memories i have.

    I came across that same sent in the US once. It made memories of Thailand flood my mind. I stood there wondering where the aroma was coming from. Surely it wasn't the week old dead mule in front of me.

    You can have my share of durian, I'd rather eat a bug.

    Never tasted it, the smell puts me of, and after one time where a GF saved some in the fridge it has been banned from inside the house it took days for the smell to go away.
    I have no doubt it's delicious I just cant eat it, and there is so many other lovely fruits here.

    I like it, still has to be a bit firm though when it's really soft the consistency of it puts me off.

    I would be just as likely to eat durian as I would be likely to scoop the floaters out of my cess pit and chew on them.

    Like it... Even get some stinky Durian milk from the market with sticky rice sometimes..

    It doesn't kill you with alcohol Loy Toy... I've washed it down with a San Mig Light before and I don't think I died.

    I also disproved another Thai belief... I got wet in the rain and didn't catch a cold.

    Love it . . . the sweet-bitter variety almost orange in colour, which you find mainly on Penang.

    Whether it is kampung durian (village durian) or D24 . . . it is a fruit made in heaven.

    Almost every Sunday the littlest one and I head off to SS2 durian market. . . eat all you can for RM18. We are the only ones that eat it . . . Mrs Hat and the other girls run away . . .

    The littlest one when she was 1 year old partaking:

    Why eat Durian when you can eat Mango or pussy fruit.
