I am not a fan of durian.  I don’t mind the smell but I don’t care for the taste either.  Durians have been popping up all over the fresh markets and after looking up the health benefits, I decided to give it another try.  To be chinese you have to eat the nasty things.

It has a consistency of expensive ice cream.  Nature’s ice cream.  One thing I love about HK is its close proximity to everything.  Durian is usually frozen for the long transit to NA, in HK the durians are fresh so the smell and texture is real.
