Durian flavour was a tad weaker than it was a few years back, but it's still good! Please pop the entire puff into your mouth. Do not attempt to bite into the puff, or it will explode and mess up your hands and perhaps that lovely blouse. (There's a tap for you to wash up if you do get durian... More

Cheap and nice creamy durian puff. We love it very much! Yes follow the instruction - Put the whole puff in your mouth!! Or risk the experience of 'erupting' durian fillings.

Tried it in 2015 and it tasted great but this time, 1 piece of it, is enough for me. It doesn't have the strong durian taste anymore and was very sweet. Overly sweet for my tastebuds so won't purchase it in future.

Just forget about the mango yoghurt flavour, the durian puff is sufficient enough to send you to heaven! Pop a whole durian puff to your mouth, and get ready to float. I am sure durian lover will agree with me that this is such a heavenly snack!

I am a durian addict so for me this durian puff is to die-for. The filling is sweet and creamy and it almost felt like you eat the real durian. But the price is a bit expensive. 6 pieces for RM13. Heads up: You really need to eat it in one mouthful. If not, it is gonna explode!

This place is also located in Jonker Walk. It is known for durian products, so I tried those that were priced at 2ringgit. But I recommend this place to shop for pasalubong items. They have a lot of choices for goodies that you can bring home to your families and friends. They have sweet, and salty hopia. They also have... More
