Singapore Foodie Season 3
We hang out with the King – the King of Fruits! The amazing durian, a fruit that has almost defied description by noted writers over the years, has a (subjectively) obscene smell combined with beautiful a custard-like flesh. We visit Ghim Moh market to hang with an innovator in the Durian scene and hear how Ah Seng innovated multiple times in his 3 decades of selling Durians
Thanks to Paul Foster for reading the quotes, and Benjamin “Mr Miyagi” Lee for the opening line about how durians smell!
