Rob and I are hanging out in Penang enjoying some truly amazing durian. We've been on the durian hunt for six months now, and these durian top everything we've sampled so far! We're waiting for a few friends, including Chris Randall and Daniella to come down from Thailand. Who else is coming? Would it be worth trying to rent a house?
Red Prawn and Hor Lor come into season in one week! Come on down!
Say hey to Chris and Daniella. I'll be there in spirit.
But I've got a Big D thawing in the fridge right now!
Very jealous! I've been there for the last two durian seasons but due to funds have to miss this one. Malaysian, and especially Penang durian is by far the best in the world! Ang Hair (Red prawn) and Tekkar (bamboo) top my list. Make sure you go to Prawn biscuit durian farm if you haven't been told already. Harley found this place years ago and the young guy there named Jin is so nice and loves us fruit people so gives you the best durian at ridiculously cheap prices. I rarely eat durian anywhere else while I'm there. It's 7k's out of Teluk Bahang on the road to Balik Pulau
Anyway have a great time and tell them Steve says hi!
