Moving into The Poiz Centre above Potong Pasir MRT Station recently, Ms Durian serves is a new cafe that serves up durian-centric desserts (think ice-cream, puffs and cakes), though does not serve the fruit itself.

Despite being the lighter tasting cake of the two that is available on the menu here, the Durian Mousse Cake is well-balanced in flavour. Featuring durian mousse, vanilla sponge, salted macadamia nuts and Gula Melaka, the durian mousse is light and smooth, carrying a hint of the pungent fruit that is pretty evident without overwhelming, all surrounded by a vanilla sponge that is fluffy and light, providing a cake with a contrast of flavour. On the top, the Gula Melaka and lightly salted macadamia nuts replicates flavours of salted caramel, while giving the cake a crunch. Really liked how the desserts here carry a clean aesthetic, whilst being well-executed and more refined in terms of flavour compared to other places that often have cheesy-looking aesthetics which can be a little pretentious. Would certainly be back to try the Durian Craquelin another time!
