I intend to have a last dance with my beloved durians before they ride into the sunset. Hmmm.... I am going to miss them until the next season.
The Tawa was sweet, bitter, gummy and the smell, mind you it is corrossive and pungent. It is extremely dangerous for the uninitiated. I guess many full-blooded Malaysians fell in love with the durian's smell first even before tasting it.
The XO has a tinge of Cognac and also a slight numbing/biting effect on the tongue. Recommended to be eaten last. Besides, it has all these common denominators that mark the best durians out: Strong smell, bitter, sweet and gummy.
The XOThe Coming Attraction. As for seasonal foods, it is like re-discovering a long lost love. The diminishing returns even while eating it everyday take a slow gradual dip. I will stop when the the sweetness of the cakes turn bitter. That's an overdose! Time to stop until the season returns.
