I'm neutral towards durians, but surprisingly, I enjoyed the MSW Durian Sago ($8.50) so much! It wasn't too bitter or sweet, but it packed a strong durian flavour while staying light and refreshing 😋

Burnt Cheesecake with an Asian twist

Come in three different layers

Top layer of burnt cream cheese, followed by Ah Seng Durian premium MSW durian puree in the middle layer, and MSW cream cheese at the base

Best place to have good quality durian desserts and fresh durian all in a single space.

Made a recent revisit to Durian Lab Café — it has been quite some time since the last time we have had the MSW Durian Sago, but it was also for this new item that is a collaboration between Durian Lab Cafe and Keong Saik Bakery which is only available on weekends.

Not an item that is unfamiliar to me, this is a re-hash of Keong Saik Bakery’s Mama’s Kueh Salat — given how this is a collaboration with Durian Lab Cafe, the Kueh Salat sees the addition of a layer of Mao Shan Wang Durian mousse that replaces that of the Pandan mousse and Pandan cake layer in the original version served at Keong Saik Bakery. In fact, between the two, I seemingly enjoyed the MSW Kueh Salat a little more — perhaps it’s how the durian mousse layer just seemed to carry a more consistent texture to Kueh Salat against the sticky and soft layer of glutinous rice that comes slightly savoury; all that whilst being distinctly pungent, but strangely not overly sweet or particularly overwhelming as it’s buttery aroma perfumes through to the MSW Kueh Salat without drowning out the soft hint of Pandan fragrance from the fluffy Pandan cake layer below.

Not sure why is it the case, but I found myself usually enjoying the creations that are made in collaboration with Keong Saik Bakery more than the ones done in collaboration with Flor Patisserie whenever I am at Durian Lab Cafe. That being said, I like how they always try to slide in something new every now and then just to keep things refreshing for returning patrons — not to mention their MSW Durian Sago is something to die for (at least for me).

Just upon this newly-introduced item at Durian Lab Café during our most recent visit there — initially just wanting to grab some of their durian-infused bakes which is a collaboration between them and Keong Saik Bakery, as well as Flor Patisserie, but found ourselves lucky to have one of these which has just been officially launched a couple of days ago.

I think I have had many sago-based desserts but the MSW Durian Sago here is probably my favourite thus far. The base is as good as it gets — that base which features concentrated MSW durian is made in-house; exceptionally smooth and velvety, yet rich and carries an evident note of the pungent fruit, all that with a scoop of MSW durian paste being added over the top that helps to further enhance the flavour profile, whilst providing a fibrous texture to the dessert. I liked how the shaved ice comes thoughtfully over the base rather than inside the base itself; helps to add a bit of texture without diluting the strong aroma of the king of fruits, while it also compliments the chewy sago as well.

Wasn’t really expecting much out of this initially, but let’s just say I am pretty sold by it — definitely something that would appease every durian lover out there considering how rich and satisfying this was with its strong flavours of the fruit. Definitely something I will crave for, and also order yet again when I make my visits here!
