6 of the best durian desserts in Singapore

Durian season is here and fans of the rich, creamy, and sometimes pungent treat have more than one way to enjoy the thorny fruit. Below, a selection of inventive durian desserts to try.

  • Mao Shan Wang Ice Cream, Durian Puree, and Honeycomb Cookies | Candlenut
    This elegant dessert by Chef-owner Malcom Lee of Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant Candlenut is surprisingly light and refreshing with durian flavours that are distinct yet not overpowering. The combination of smooth, luscious ice Mao Shan Wang ice cream and home-made honeycomb cookies is brought together by a creamy durian pengat sauce that has just the perfect balance of durian and coconut cream. Scattered bits of crushed feuilletine add to the crunch.
