The King of fruits takes centrestage today! I inadvertently stumbled on this place last Saturday when Splashie Boy dragged me to Low Yat Plaza to do his computer "business". Couldn't miss it as loads of people, were queueing up at this brand new store (opened a week ago) as they were doing a promotion of 2 crispy rolls for RM1, which was valid for the weekend only.
The modus operandi is marketing the frozen durian flesh in various manners: in a portable box they call Nonya cube (RM4.90), where you can eat it on the go, placed in various crispy rolls and buns and deep-fried. I tried the crispy roll (there's 3 flavours: durian, cempedak, redbean and banana) filled with durian and it was not too bad. Filled with a light and crisp pastry, the durian filling was a little too rich yellow to be au naturel but nevertheless it was still very tasty and extremely pungent. Also tried the other fried items (you can order 3 pieces for RM5.90 or 5 pieces for RM10.90) - the golden durian, cempedak fireball and the white custard snowy bun. Absolutely hated the snowy bun, too sweet and somehow the texture was weird - gooey soft. The golden durian and cempedak fireball was not too bad but I felt the ratio of filling to the bun was not enough though. Wouldn't mind returning for the crispy roll, as that was the best of the lot. Apologies for all the finger shots as this place is strictly a take-away kiosk, hence we had to eat these on the go.
