Scrumptious Desserts @ Midvalley


I sniffed and i whiffed. The familiar pungent smell of that fruit was hitting up my nose faster then you say "durian". Wait a minute, i am neither at the durian markets nor am i at Just Heavenly for that matter.

I am standing in the middle of a shopping complex smelling durian, have i gone nuts? With no sight of that green thorny fruit unless Jaya Jusco was blowing durians into the air-con, hundreds of metres away, it was impossible or was it?

Then i saw it, a humble stall with a fridge filled with yellow goodies.

A smiling lady was dishing up samples of DURIAN PANCAKES!

Now if you have eaten the ones at Mandarin Oriental, the cream is infused with durian but none to be seen.

This one on the other hand has strands of durian flesh in one layer and a freshly lightly whipped cream in another layer, wrapped by a rather tasteless skin. After all the purpose of the skin was to protect the emperor of all fruits and cream from the public like his guards.

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Finishing a piece in 2 bites, this is a relatively affordable durian snack, 6 pieces for an introductory RM 10. The durian flesh shows that they have not skimmed ontheir ingredients, now the only mystery is how their mango pancake tastes like.

Situated at the new walk thru from Midvalley to Gardens, closer to the Midvalley side, just after the Big Apple donuts corner shop.
