If you are crazy about durian

Many would automatically clip their nose...they say it smells so bad. Is it? Durians to many smells of heaven. It's the King of Fruits. Well... at least it applies to me.

Going food hunting one fine Sunday evening, I made a stop at this much publicised Delima Food Court in Shah Alam in the suburb of Kuala Lumpur. From quite a distance away I saw people snaking queuing. First hunch -- It must be really good or else nobody would want to queue that long for a bowl of this local delicacy.

So I joined the crowd, queued for about 20 minutes just to order and waited another 15 minutes before finally my precious bowl of 'cendol pulut durian' was delivered to my table.

My gosh...holy goodness. The big crowd was never wrong! It was so awesomely delicious. Pulut is steamed glutinous rice (red in colour), durian is of course durian but cendol I can't find the translation for it. Never mind the translation. It came in a bowl with some 'santan' (coconut milk, but this stall used palm fruit milk) and some coconut syrup.

It makes a good fulfilling dinner! Just don't forget your insulin and diabetes medication later if you're on one.

it's here

the green coloured one is the 'cendol' made from rice
