Ask five people what Durian tastes like and you are likely to get five different answers. Some drool over it, some run in horror and some, like us, just really want to put new strange things in our mouths.
They come frozen at our favorite Asian market because they smell terrible when they aren’t frozen apparently. Our friend Shireen took us on an amazing foodie adventure to said Asian market when we first arrived in Georgia and we have been addicted ever since. She insisted that we taste a Durian.
So taste it we did.
We hacked it open (note that we are outside while doing so!)
Opened up the pods.
And dug in!
Kevin and Shireen swear that it tastes sweet and desserty. All I could taste was Walla Walla sweet onions. But….I was pregnant so that could be part of it. It was pudding like texture and kind of mushy which was strange. I could see it in a savory type of dish or maybe a sweet dish if it had plenty of sugar in it.
All in all….not my cup of tea, but…..Adventure Bite conquered!
