Resorts World Sentosa Durian Fest 2016
Durian lovers, you need to run down to the Resorts World Sentosa Durian Fest NAO! The festival is back bigger than ever, as aficionados line up to pay tribute to the King of fruits during this annual bonanza.
The world’s largest stack of durians takes center stage, with 21 tonnes of the fruit imported specially from plantations in Pahang, Malaysia. Besides the durians, specialist supplier Durian 36 also provides staff who will expertly pick out the variety of durian you want. Simply walk up to the mounds of durians and ask for the one (or more) of your choice, and the staff will crack those pesky shells open for you.
Besides the perennial favorite Mao Shan Wang, this year’s durian selection also includes the D13, Red Prawn (Ang Hei), Golden Phoenix (Jin Feng) and the Bamboo (Tekka). Each variety of durian comes with their unique properties- the Mao Shan Wang undisputedly the crowd favorite for its creamy and rich taste. Just 2 seeds and you're mostly full! However, fans have also expressed their love for the sweet and intense flavor of the Ang Hei, a fleshy orange hue fruit with small seeds.
As the saying goes “There is no King without a Queen”, so while the King of fruits take centre stage, there is also a selection of tropical fruits including mangosteens, longans, rambutans and jackfruit for those who relish a break from all the bitter goodness. There is also free flow of coconut water and cooling water to keep yourself well hydrated.
For those who are afraid of getting their hands dirty, disposable gloves are available – but really there is nothing like the feeling of licking your fingers clean of that creamy pulp.
The RWS Durian Fest 2016 runs from 18 to 21 Aug . Tickets for the event are already sold out for the 19 and 20 Aug but limited spots are still available for the 21st. By the way, if you didn’t already know, RWS is also a hot spot for pokemon catching – we were able to catch some pokemons at the event itself! We were also lucky to catch a Lapras while strolling off the richness of the durian along the waterfront. So gather your durian loving friends and family and head to RWS for a fun filled evening!
