Durian Lagenda @ Lot 10

We waited for it, wondering whether it'd be legendary: Durian lovers, here's how to meet the mother of all spiky-fruit fantasies.

Durian Lagenda, the latest entry into Lot 10's Hutong food court, might be a durian addict's dream destination, stinky with durian ice cream, durian cookies, durian cupcakes, durian chocolate truffles, durian mochi & more.

Many thanks to Eric & the Durian Lagenda team for inviting us to try their offerings. Our favorite, unsurprisingly, is the ice cream: The soft-serve (RM4.80) is satisfyingly smooth, with a pleasant flavor that's distinct but not dominating.

 Crispy-crumbly durian cookies. Durian Lagenda uses pure pulp, not essence, from fruits secured from farms in Raub, Pahang, for its products.

Durian pancake (RM18 for a nicely packaged box of six). It's still frosty when it's sold at the counter, so bring it home & let it have some time to soften. Quite enjoyed the indulgently creamy center.

Pretty unique cupcake; the first few mouthfuls taste like typical chocolate, with a tantalizing bite of thickly gooey durian stuffing revealed merely in the middle, beneath the cupcake's surface. RM5.50 (also available in poppy-seed flavor).

A Japanese-Malaysian fusion creation: Durian mochi (also one that's more suitable for bringing home, RM25 for eight pieces).

 Other temptations include durian egg rolls, puffs & egg tarts (note: most but not all items are consistently available), plus whole packs of D24 & Musang King durian fruit. Definitely easy to go overboard on durian here.
