Four Seasons Durians 四季榴莲 – Shenzhen, China


Found this little outlet while venturing around the King Glory Plaza one day and I really found this place by smelling it out! I detected the durian aroma (poison for some) and headed towards that direction. Ok to be honest, I didn’t know Four Seasons Durians have branched out to Shenzhen… and in fact, I didn’t know they existed in the first place! ;P I only came to know about this brand via this shop, hence it is a good move franchising out to China! 🙂

During my recent trip back home in Singapore, the prices in Singapore is a lot more expensive than in China. It could be a penetration strategy but I ruled it out as they have already 3 outlets to date here in Shenzhen. It could also be because of spending power? Then again, the people in Shenzhen have high spending power too! But I’m not complaining as the prices here are a lot cheaper due to currency conversion.

The stall…
Yummy durian ice cream with a very very rich D24 taste for only RMB$8!
Product of Singapore!
Durian pancakes made on the spot, 2 for RMB$15!
Yummy durian filling!

My Encounter With Durians In Shenzhen


Ok think most of my friends know that I love durians. So I was walking by the fruits stall the other day just below my apartment, I saw durians!!! So I bought one since I was craving for it and it costed me almost S$10 for one!

Check out the durian... looks good right? Looks like those bitter sweet durians we find in Singapore right?
It was good until I opened up the durian... see the colour... boring one half... Took a bite, boring one whole... No taste, no smell, not sweet, it's like eating raw tapioca!!! Wah lau eh!!! Pui!
Dunno why I did this... thought the other parts of the durian might taste better... but to my dismay... it sucks totally... This whole lot, down the rubbish bin...

So I wasted $10 on the lousy Thai durian… In Geylang buy the $1 ones I believe still a lot better than this… Now I really miss the durians back home…

Really pui chao nua… no more Thai durians for me unless I can taste it first! Pui!
