Sambal Stingray

Our favorite sambal stingray place...

Their stingray is meaty compared to others; every bite is so succulent & together with the fiery sambal chili, this is a damn shiok dish!

Either you love or hate it, and like many others, I adore this fruit and this is my current crush of the season.

The different dissonant flavours that some may describe as pungent or even repulsive somehow come together as something so addictive, that one is simply not enough!

From mao shan wang to super black gold (former is slightly sweeter), I had my fill of quality and fresh durians at The Durian Story and that absolutely made my night!

Durian - Super Black Gold (seasonal price).

It was an awesome evening of durian tasting. We started from the durian of the lightest flavour - Mao Shan Wang, then moved upwards to Wang Zhong Wang, Black Gold and ended with Super Black Gold.

Gosh. I've never tasted so many premium durians in a single seating before. This is taken during an invited tasting.

Something hot and spicy to cure the sudden bout of cold rain - Large Laksa ($7 + $4.50 for crayfish).

The broth was pretty good especially when I grew up eating the one from Queensway. They were pretty similar except this was slightly less spicy! Pretty generous amount of the prawns as well, can do with or without crayfish though. I went for it as I was in the "treat yoself" mood.

This spaghetti prawn pasta aglio olio is really worth having. $19 with chunks of dory fish slices along with prawns? Wow it's a steal. On top of that the dried prawn paste is makes the dish really flavourful with the right balance of spiciness and a distinct prawn taste.

Hits and misses with this dish. The pistachio lava cake was really nutty, strong pistachio flavour and cake was a little crispy on the outside with fluffy inside. I had issue with the fact that the lava gave way from the bottom instead of the side when we attempted to cut through. I also didn't like the lukewarm temperature of the cake. The cold gelato totally overwhelmed the lukewarm cake. Still it's a very good experience having only tried molten chocolate lava cakes previously.

Some may say durian is an acquired taste.

But to (almost) all locals, this is the bomb, especially during durian season! Such is my love for fresh, quality durians at The Durian Story. Tried 4 different types and this black gold (pictured) is my favourite of the night!

Its flesh is custardy, soft, creamy and has a slightly more bitter aftertaste than the more familiar cousin mao shan wang. If you prefer less sweet, this is definitely for you!

Durians (Tong Lai $11/kg; Tekka $12/kg; XO $12/kg; MSW $20/kg).

Mao Shan Wang isn't necessarily the best durian, it's simply of a different taste profile and you may realise that you like the cheaper durians better.. Just like some people prefers Robusta coffee to Arabica coffee even though Arabica is typically more expensive.

Here, we were equally split between Tekka (floral, sweet), Black Pearl (herbal, bitter) and XO (bitter, creamy), and all agreed we could like other durians better than Mao Shan Wang. πŸ”Έ
The next time you're at a durian stall, give the other durian types a try too! The Tong Lai is pictured, feel free to DM me for photos of the other durians. And thanks @eatwithroy for your macho hands!

[Durian Season is here] Mao Shan Wang Durian ($19/kg).

This is Singaporean's favourite durian. It's strong, creamy, buttery, and most durian lovers love this. Prices have shot up due to strong demand and reduced supply.

During our durian session, we discovered many other good durian types at @the_durian_story.. Like the rare tekka and black pearl! Will post and review them another day.

Prawn Noodles With Pork Ribs

Soup was not as rich and flavourful, would be better if it was less oily. Pork ribs were tender but portion of both prawns and pork ribs were small. Still, was thankful for a comfortingly hot bowl of prawn noodles on a rainy day

Prawn Noodle and homemade Ngoh Hiang.

A bowl of medium sized freshwater prawns will set you back about $5.50 while the ngoh hiang is appx $10. They have pork ribs, pig's tails etc too. Place was bustling with activities when we reached around 12:30pm, just in time for lunch.

I went for bee hoon which is slightly thicker than those thin version others are offering. Personally felt the soup was underwhelming and slightly oily but then there are those who might prefer this. Thoughtful gesture on their part as they have handmade paper bowls for one to throw away prawn shells.
