Bao Seng Durian Buffet (Eat all you Can Durian) @ Penang

It’s June, and it’s Durian season, the kings of fruits, and also the season of fattening.

These years, there is however something very hot in Malaysia, which is durian buffet. Just pay a small amount of money, and you get to eat all you can. From D24, red prawn, hor lor and many many more.

You can choose, either go for the eat all you can, or pay for 1 and eat it there. For the buffet, you got 3 choices, RM25, RM35 and RM45. For RM25, you can only choose Durians from the 1st row, for RM35, 1st and 2nd row can be choose, and for RM45, you can choose all the Durians available, which include little red and red prawn (ang heh). We opt for the RM45, wishing to try it all!

The owner is a friendly guy. Although he is very busy with so many customers around, yet he is able to explain to us each type of Durian, the name of it, and how it should taste like. Besides, since there’s only 2 of us, thumb up to him that all the Durian he choose for us are small one, so that we are able to taste different type of Durian, good job!

And the famous red prawn, or better known as ang heh, which taste bitter sweet and is among 1 of the most loved version of Durian lovers. 1 of my favorite too.

Hor Lor, which if translate directly to english is water gourd. The shape of the Durian itself looks like a water gourd, so goes to the flesh inside, and hence the name of it. However, the one we got is way way too dry for my liking.

Pek Bak You (White Pork Lard) is our final Durian, and it’s also 1 of my favorite. Although the meat is white, but it’s taste very very nice.

However, this is quite a famous place and it attracts many visitors. We couldn’t even get a table for ourself and we had to eat by the place where they put their Durian.

Overall, it’s a great experience. However, it’s best come with a bunch of your Durian lover friend so that you can share a whole Durian among yourselves, chit chating while slowly enjoy high quality Durian for the day.
