10 exotic dishes that might make you queasy: Durian fruit
Durian is my favorite food!
It tastes more like a rich creamy gelatinous custard with almonds!
Just plug your nose, but I am immune to the whiff.
Actually, I'd be fine,I'm anosmic so I have no sense of smell. Will try this next time it comes out!
Spoiler alert: it DOESN'T taste like vanilla pudding. Maybe almost sickly sweet, like vague pineapple and..... I don't know. But I'm not going to try it again in order to complete my description.
I totally go crazy eating durian during the durian season. It's so creamy! <3 But the setback is that eating durian in a hot day actually makes you feel hotter!!
Yeah, some people can't stand the smell.
There's a popular dessert made of durian, called "bubur durian" or "serawa". Somehow the people who couldn't stand the smell of durian is able to eat this dessert (maybe because of the aroma of pandan leaves)
Durian are quite good but the smell is had to get over. The part you eat is somewhat like custard.
