99 Old Trees is a quaint durian shop in Owen Road with one of the best kept secrets around; their SukaWa Durian Omakase.

Limited to up to 8 people and only up to two sessions per week, each lasting 45 minutes to an hour. They will present at least six durian cultivars ranging from the wildly popular Mao Shan Wang to the rare Black Thorn, while guests savour unlimited portions of Mao Shan Wang or D24 durians. yum.

Honestly? As someone that likes buying durian, I enjoyed the education portion the most. Having that one hour to ask them any questions ranging from how do you stop yourself from being fleeced to what durians are the most value for money is something you don’t get at most places.

Their durians are also fantastic. I had the best Red Prawn (Ang Hei) of my life. It was super creamy, and bitter sweet with little seeds and it’s now up there, along with Golden Phoenix as one of my favorites.
