The other we tried the infamous fruit Durian, or as I will refer to it in the future: the fruit from hell. Even though we only had access to a dried sample, the smell was not only bad, but also, as I firmly believe, extremely persistent as it still lingers around here and sneaks its way into all foods. Even now, 24 hours later, I believe to be able to smell in certain places.
Anyway, once we got over the smell the taste was mostly “blah” and nothing to write home about. Our little one did like it, but he was the only one.
I’m not surprised the fruit is forbidden in certain restaurants. So, if someone offers you a sample, kindly refuse, or simply run away. I recommend you don’t try one at home, or anywhere else for that matter.
The leftover’s of that sample are currently sealed in an airtight bag, waiting to be exterminated.
