Two days ago we enjoyed our first Bali durian for this season and let us tel you it was a good friend back in bussines.
We had seen some on some street stalls but not any that we thinker looked good. so we did not by any as we want the first durian for the season to be memerabol.
Two days ago we went to our lovely Balinese friend and his family to visit them. When we ware leaving his wife came with a big bag of fruits, a big bunch of bananas (Pisang Andong), 2 papayas, 3 mangoes and in a nother bag…. Durian or as we cal him Mr D. We could smell the lovely aroma when she came walking with the bag.
So so lovely of them as they know we love fruits and especially durian. She found it on the local market earli in the morning as she her self sells there.
This is such a nice thing of them to do as they don’t have so much money. They are so genuine, friendly and we are so happy we have become friends.
As we ware walking back to the resort, we ware so happy to have a durian in the bag. But we did not have so big expectations as it’s in the beginning of the season.
A durian is so amazing, always a suprice. It’s the moust exiting thing to open and eat. But it’s s fruit you have to share, not a fruit you can eat by yourself, otherwise it’s loses it’s magic.
As we opens the durian, we could se that people went in to there rooms and closed the dors, hi hi hi mabye they don’t like durian and the durian smell as much as we do 🙂
We could smell it the whole day even have a perfume with the wonderful durian aroma, then you would always have a seat on the bus 🙂
This is what it looked like inside.
We ware so exited, we took each a pease and a some seconds of silence and then a mmmmmm aaaaa indicated that it was a good one. It was lightly yellow, big seeds but ok with durian flesh around it. Had a sweet but not to sweet tast, semi creamy, some pleases was really creamy. It was a 5,5 out of 10 durian if you only compare with the other Bali Durian’s we have eaten. We ware in durian heaven.
A family we had talked to came out and we offered them to try, but they sad ~no but thank you, we tryed it in Thailand but did not like it.
So we sat there in the gazebo next to the pool and pease after pease enjoyed it. The worst thing with eating durian is that after it’s finished you only want more and more and wished you had some more to dig in to. It’s so addicting!
We filmed when we opened it, here is a video from our Instagram @makethatraw
Now the durian hunts begines for two durian addict like us, to find the best ones out there. The best thing is that the durian season in Bali probably is to the end of April and we know the best hidden spots to find the greatest ones. But still a lot of places to explore.
Lots of durian love from us!
