Stumbled across this bad boy last week.   I live a few blocks down the street from a Sri Lankan Buddhist temple and consequently a big, sleepy Buddha.  Fortunately I don’t live close enough to hear the early morning chanting.

Only in Asia, man…

…and it tasted like a dirty gym sock.  Well, it smelled like a dirty gym sock, and it was hard to get past that.  I’d say the consistency was similar to an avocado.  A little slimier.  Maybe more like a brie or Camembert cheese.  So in summation, eating durian was like eating a sweet, cheesy, slimy, gym-sock-smelling avocado.

Apparently you can “acquire a taste” for it if you keep trying it, but why anyone would want to do that is beyond me.

Anyone sold?
