30 Bananas a Day!

Durian served fresh outside in Manhattan's Chinatown

In front of Tu Quynh Pharmacy at 230 Grand Street there is a fruit stand which will open a ripe durian for you and put it in a container.  There's no seating area but you can eat it outside or bring it into your home or hotel if you dare, ha, ha.  I like eating it outside somewhere to avoid the smell while eating it and not upset my housemate by bringing it home.

 

Tonight I had some and I am in total heaven.  I bought the durian first and then a man opened it up for me.

 

Both times I've done this I go when I'm not super hungry and then I don't overeat it.  I find I digest it well in this more moderate amount and don't feel sluggish from it the next day as some people report feeling.

All I've tried are the ones that have been imported and frozen, I can't wait to try the fresh ones one day :)

I should add that they do freeze them to transport them here from Thailand.  But they defrost them and seem to be able to pick them so they are ripe and delicious.  I notice that the deliciousness is a little uneven, parts are awesome and others just OK, so that may be due to the freezing, I don't know.  But it's still wonderful.
