When it comes to the king of fruits, it’s either you love it or you hate it. And to the ones who love it, there are several dessert options that take the pungent, creamy fruit to the next level.
As a soft serve, piped into a pastry, infused into local desserts or even into a cake, and so much more, durian’s application is basically boundless. If you’re as mad about durian desserts as we are, you’ll be thrilled to know that there is much more than just your average durian puff. Here is our guide on 16 durian desserts in Singapore.
Finally, the day has come for all durian fans—a Mao Shan Wang cafe opened this year at Temple Street on our little island without much fanfare. Helmed by the team behind Four Seasons—a well-known durian specialty confectionery in Singapore—Mao Shan Wang Cafe is where you can indulge in everything durian.
The industrial-themed cafe is a great place to stop by for afternoon tea or just whenever you are craving for the king of fruits at any time of the year. Yes, you no longer have to wait for the annual durian season to have a taste of this luxurious fruit.
What makes Mao Shan Wang Cafe stand out is their willingness to experiment with various flavours to create new offerings. Their creative menu features both traditional and innovative durian creations; think durian pastries, durian black charcoal pizzas and even durian-dipped nuggets! READ ON
Durian is known as the King of Fruits, and you either love or hate it; there is no in between.
The tropical fruit possesses a complex mix of bitterness, sweetness, fragrance and pungent smell. And though you can eat them all year round, there are actually seasons for the durian – where you can find the most variety at very competitive prices.
Otherwise, we actually appreciate durian desserts on regular days. And these are the many ways we can satisfy our cravings for the spiky fruit.
From Taste Better’s Durian Soft Serve Ice Cream (S$3.80++), Mei Heong Yuen Dessert’s Durian Snow Ice (S$5) to House Of Rice Roll and Porridge’s Durian Chee Cheong Fun (S$5.90), here is our take on the 10 Best Durian Desserts in Singapore.
Nestled in between the shophouses on Joo Chiat Road is Sinpopo Brand, one of our favourite cafes with a strong touch of nostalgia. The cafe boasts a retro rustic ambience – think wooden tables, checkered floor tiles, antique light bulbs, Bruce Lee posters and songs from the 60′s.
Nothing spells comfort to a Singaporean more than Nasi Lemak and Hor Fun – which is exactly what Sinpopo Brand is known for. However, what distinguishes Sinpopo Brand from the usual hawker centre food besides the vintage interiors of the cafe, is how they deliver local food that comes with a twist.
On our previous visit, we shared several of our favourite bites from Sinpopo Brand. Since then, the concept cafe has introduced new additions. There is a Salted Vegetable Duck Soup that totally reminded us of grandma’s cooking, a Muah Chee Salad and an extremely photogenic Gula Melaka Chendol Parfait!
Readers of Ladyironchef can enjoy any dessert for just S$5 with any 2 main dishes or Nasi Lemak for Two ordered.
