Try the durian chendol. Very refreshing. Yum yum! I will definitely be back if I'm in the vicinity.
*Pris and I passed by Durian Mpire, gaped at their cute durian cakes and mousse, and decided to continue our catching up here. They sell a wide variety of durian cakes, mousse, pies, puffs etc, in many different kinds of shapes and sizes. So we snagged a table and ordered some items to share.
First there was the Durian Mousse (SGD$4.30) which came in a really adorable shape of a half of an opened durian. The green shell and yellow flesh were cleverly sculptured, every line so fine. The mousse was luxuriantly aromatic with durian's distinctive flavor, and creamy smooth.
Then we tried the Super Punkhead Cake (SGD$5.00) - I had chosen this simply purely because of its really cute looks. The cream was made into spikes, making the entire creation look so mean - but the spongy soft cake tasting deliciously of durian's sweetness was gentle on the palate.
Next in line was the Durian Coil (SGD$5.00), a golden yellow coating that tasted like crepe skin. The interior was a roll of soft durian cake, fluffy soft and every mouthful was like a durian dream.

What do I do when the annual Durian Fiesta at Goodwood Park Hotel ends? I come here for my durian fix whenever a craving kicks in.
I've tried durian sandwich ($3.60), durian crepe ($3.50) and durian pudding ($2.50) but they are just average without leaving much of an impression.
The cakes definitely fare better, namely durian premiere cake ($8.00), durian coil ($4.00), durian cheese slice ($3.80) and durian premiere slice ($3.50), which are all extremely aromatic with ample D24 durian puree. Also, it's interesting to note that durian and cheese complement each other well with a sweet-salty combination which proves to be real exciting on the palate.
Having said that, a good substitute is after all a substitute. How I wish the Durian Fiesta is available all year round!
