Here is a list of some of our favourite Durian delicacies found in Malaysia.

Durian Cake

Durian cake comes in many shapes and forms. Some are creamy made with a soft sponge cake and some are creamy with a set cheesecake base. But if you love cake and durian - both of these types are to die for!

Durian Egg-Tart

This eggy, durian-y egg-tart is very aromatic and creamy. These are simply amazing with a hardened textured base with a soft jelly-like set custard on top. The taste is even better! A perfect blend of egg-tart and durian! Yum!

Durian Popiah

This is where it gets a little weirder. Durian filled within popiah skin is then fried then served. This crunchy skin with soft and creamy durian filling is a wholesome and satisfying little snack.

For Malaysians, this sticky sweet is something we are all familiar with. It is chewy, and a little sticky but the taste is unmistakably durian. So if you haven’t already tried some dodol. Do so now!
