Durian Pancakes & Durian Macaroons @ Durian Durian, Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

durian pancakes - yummy yummy

At this small stall within the food court at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, it's literally a shrine dedicated to the King of Fruit aka the creamy, delectable and unique smelling durian. We stumbled on this place last weekend and had a great laugh at its signboard - "Durian Durian" that reminded us of what would have happened if Duran Duran, that 1980s band had made a major typo error.

the making of a tempting treat

I was so tempted to try many things here but decided to restraint myself since I'm the only one who eats durian (Splashie Boy hates durian to his core of his heart and nothing will make him change his ways ever!). The pancakes looked good (1 piece for RM3, 2 pieces for RM5), hence that was ordered straight away. Made on the spot when you place your order, they add frozen durian cream within the just cooked pancake, fold it down and hand it to you to savour. Since Pavilion is usually full of foreigners, I had a hard time searching for a place to sit far away from them since I doubt they'll appreciate the stinking smell next to them.

the not so fantastic durian macaroons

Pancakes were yummy especially when eaten hot from the stove! Feeling unsatisfied with my poor durian tasting session, the next thing I decided to try were the durian macaroons (6 pieces for RM6). Big mistake as these macaroons were poorly made (no match to the infamous Laduree as they were hard and gummy when bitten into). The durian taste ain't too distinct either since it's just durian flavoured whipped cream. I should have instead spent my calorie intake on the soft ice cream flavoured with durian or the durian cream puffs, the durian mochi or even the durian swiss roll.

Nope.. no durian for me either.. however, I'm trying hard to learn to appreciate durian (still yields no result) as Jenn is a durian lover.. kinda pity to see her sacrificing her cravings for king of fruit for me

Love durian, but extremely disappointed with Durian Durian's Durian Tarts, which come temptingly individually wrapped in a box with a delicious looking photo of a tart full of durian. The price tag reflects the imagery, but sadly the contents are a huge disappointment. Very little filling encased in way too much tasteless pastry (nearly 1cm thick on the bottom. Come on Durian, Durian, smarten up your act, and update the images on the box to truly reflect the poor quality product you're selling. Needless to say, we won't be wasting our money on these tarts again.
