Durian Lagenda at Lot 10: Restaurant Review
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 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).
Durian Lagenda uses pure pulp, not essence, from fruits secured from farms in Raub, Pahang, for its products
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.
