Are you interested in eating edible fruit of the Durio species? Read on to learn about the best durian places in Klang Valley.
The durian is a weird fruit. It’s large and spiky, which already hints at its unappealing nature.
Before you even cut into it, it already emits a foul smell. And upon splitting a durian fruit open, your nose is completely assaulted by its terrible odor.
Yet for some strange reason, a bunch of Asian countries are absolutely obsessed with this fruit. And Malaysia is no exception.
So if you’ve got a hankering for durian, you’re in the right place. Read on for your 2021 guide to the 5 best durian places in Klang Valley!
Durianity is one of the newest durian spots to hit Klang Valley. It’s actually the only durian-themed cafe in all of Puchong, so it’s definitely something special to experience!
What’s awesome about this cafe is that it doesn’t just serve durian plain. Instead, you’ll get to tickle your tastebuds with things like pizzas, smoothies, nasi lemak, cream puffs, crepes, and cakes; all of which are, of course, durian flavored!
If you’re in the mood to have just durian, don’t worry, as they serve plain durian, too. In fact, they’ve got Musang King on their menu, as well as a nice variety of other durian types, so you’ll get only the best here.
If you’re too lazy to head over to Durianity, they’ve got you covered here too. Hop online and order whatever you want, including durian merch, in case you want to show your crazy and weird love of this fruit! All orders over RM75 have free shipping and there are no customs or duty fees either.
2. DurianBB Park
Located in Jalan Imbi, just the outside of this establishment will entrance you. It’s made up of several containers painted in bright yellow and orange, which is quite reminiscent of durians. Their cute durian-costumed mascots are painted across them, so snap an adorable pic for your IG!
FYI: you can rent out these small air-conditioned containers to have a durian party with your friends if you wish!
In any case, you know how people have wine tastings and high tea? Well, DurianBB Park’s taken that idea and ran with it.
Here, you’ll be served a sampler tray of 5 different varieties of durian, including Musang King. They’ve carefully arranged it so you start with the mildest flavor and end with the strongest.
This is a great way to test the waters and see which varieties you like, all without having to buy and hack away at whole durians yourself.
DurianBB Park also has a wide variety of durian products. So make sure you grab some to take home and savor!
3. MK Durian Boys
This one’s for those of you who live in Cheras. MK Durian Boys is a high-quality durian eatery that serves up chunks of tasty durian for you to gobble up.
They source durians of all varieties, such as Golden Phoenix, Red Prawn, and Green Bamboo. Of course, if you’re after Musang King, they have this as well!
While MK Durian Boys is most well-known for the durians they serve, they do much more than that. You can also find other tropical fruits here, as well as pastries and juices.
So if you’re after some fresh durian or other tropical fruits, make sure you stop by if you’re in the area!
4. Gold Thon
Did Durianity’s menu intrigue you? Perhaps you’ve been there before and crave more innovative durian dishes. In that case, you need to head over to Gold Thon, especially if you’re a food blogger or food explorer.
Gold Thon is one of the best places to eat durian in Klang Valley. They’re so good that their products are available all across Asia and even Australia!
But they also have other durian products on offer, such as pizza, Swiss roll, and cheesecake. You can also purchase other delectable tropical fruits if you wish!
Not only do they have fresh durians, but Gold Thon also has some freeze-dried durians if you want to save it for later (or give it to a friend).
Again, for the lazy, you’ll benefit from delivery. The good news is that all purchases have free shipping if they’re over RM150!
5. Purple Monkey Cakes
Are you a dessert lover? Then you must make a visit to Purple Monkey Cakes.
This is the place to visit if you want to give durian cheesecakes a try. This establishment blends durian pulp, cream cheese, and other secret ingredients to give you this exquisite dessert. It’s truly something durian lovers must experience at least once in their lifetimes!
Maybe you’re a bit of a loner and despite having a passion for desserts, you just can’t finish a Purple Monkey Cakes Golden Durian Cheesecake all on your own. In that case, no problem; you can purchase Little Durian King mini cakes.
These are absolutely adorable, as they’re made to look just like a durian fruit! So even if you can finish a whole cake on your own, you might want to pick up a few of the mini cakes anyway, just for the cuteness factor alone.
