Fruit of KINGS can be found in abundance at Blk 538 Bedok North Street 3 next to Shing Song Supermarket. Really good super yummy durians freshly opened and packed in styrofoam boxes are there for your tasting pleasure at $2, $5 and $10 per box. Really good quality and very delicious. I know because I bought some.

I was the first gourmet in the world to match Durians with wine in 2004 at the Singapore Marriott. I selected Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rose 1997. It was perfect. Alfred Russell Wallace the famous British Naturalist and Botanist was a big fan of the thorny Durian.



The Travelling Gourmet says, “He who delves beneath the thorns may discover unspeakable pleasures…” Selamat menjamu selara!
