With the surge in popularity of home delivery services so you can stuff your face with everything from fast food to sushi and seafood platters, do you also know that you can get durian delivered to your place? Having ripe durians delivered to your doorstep so you can avoid dealing with the spikes and smell sticking to your car is a much appreciated convenience for us.
Feasting on the King of Fruits is a gift to our tropical country. While you can head down for durian buffets or markets to choose your own, door-to-door delivery services wherever you are means we can enjoy our creamy or bitter joys in the comfort of our own homes—without actually having to step out.
With that, here are 8 durian delivery services in Singapore that all you durian lovers can count on and need to know when the craving hits.
The annual Durian Fest at Resorts World Sentosa returns again!
This immensely popular durian buffet sees a sell-out every year, with slots taken within days of launch, and if you haven’t been, you totally should this year. With predicted low durian supplies due to the heat wave, you can be the only one out of all your friends to brag that you have had an all-you-can-eat feast of the King of Fruits. The crowd-favourite event is also a display of the world’s largest stack of durians, with premium grades and types for you to go crazy over.
Durian Fest 2016 will be held over a period of three days – 19 to 21 August 2016. It is your time to party with durians, on top of the selection of tropical fruits. It is a definite feast. Durian on free flow – does that not sound like the best summer idea already?!
Here are some highlights from our escapade at Durian Fest 2015, and why we cannot wait for Durian Fest 2016.
Every year, Resorts World Sentosa celebrates the love for durians with an annual Durian Fest, showcasing only the best durians available on the market. This year’s event, held on 10 & 11 July 2015, was a resounding success with tickets selling out quicker than you could spell ‘durian’. Pleasing hundreds of people all over Singapore, the main draw of this yearly affair is that premium durians are served and prepared for you free-flow so you can literally have as many as you desire!
Alongside the massive stack of durians available over the two days were seasonal fruits such as longkong, jackfruit, mangosteens and rambutans. To wash down the richness of the durians, bottles of cooling water and fresh coconuts were also made conveniently available.
The annual Durian Fest at Resorts World Sentosa is truly an unforgettably spectacular event, and here are some highlights to share. You know you have to be at the next one in 2016.
We all know premium durians can be pricey and at times, hard to acquire. Thankfully for you, Resorts World Sentosa will be bringing back their wildly popular Premium Durian Fest Buffet (on 10 and 11 July 2015) where you can indulge in as much durians as you want, together with a range of fresh seasonal fruits.
Dive into a delectable spread that includes the delicious Mao Shan Wang and the ever-popular D24, known for their creamy and appetising flesh. Other fresh seasonal fruits that will be available in the spread include mangosteens, jackfruits and duku langsats.
The best part about RWS Durian Fest is there is no cap on how many durians – and that includes Mao Shan Wang and D24 – you can eat! Make your reservations at rwsentosa.com/durianfest.
The new Sentosa Boardwalk is a great way to travel to Sentosa on foot. Featuring tropical landscapes, the garden-themed boardwalk has a stunning view of the bay as you take a leisure stroll from VivoCity Shopping Mall’s waterfront promenade, made easy by two-way canopy-covered travellators.
From 9th to 26th Jun 2011, Sentosa Boardwalk has a Crab and Durian Buffet for $38++/pax. I think that this is a value-for-money buffet, especially so if you like crabs and durian.
