Durian SS2, Petaling Jaya

The annual durian season has arrived!!! All the durian connoisseurs are out to seek for the best durian around to cure their yearly addiction over durian. The best place to seek for durian will be the famous Durian SS2 which is just relocated to a new place which is located along the Jalan Harapan. This building is newly built by the government just for the durian seller to have their business here.
The reason for Durian SS2 being one of the best is because the varieties, the freshness and a lot of choices to choose from. They have fresh durians deliver to them every single day.
The price doesn't come cheap at all! Only rich people can afford such a price. I usually bought Udang Merah around RM9-RM10/kg only. The price here is double the usual price. However, they assure all their durians are top quality if there is not fresh, they will change a new one for you without additional charges. Not enough cash? No problem. They accept visa and mastercard. This is the first time I see a durian seller has their own credit card terminal.
This is the Raja Kunyit @RM45.00/kg. It is really a beautiful durian. It tastes really strong which carries bitter smell in it. That is why this is the most expensive durian among all.
Udang Merah Penang @RM23.00/kg. The difference between the southern Udang Merah and Udang Merah Penang is the Penang one carries stronger bitter taste and that is why it is slightly expensive.
XO @RM28.00/kg. XO carries more sweetness in it and you will feel as if the durian is slightly infused with alcohol. Among all the above, my favourite is still Udang Merah.
Overall, I still find that it is too expensive to eat durian here. Even though they do provide durian buffet at RM20/pax but you are only offered with their durian kampung and not these branded durians. So it is still not worth it. The best durian is still the branded durian unless you just want to taste durian and you hardly can differentiate whether they are branded or not.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
