Durian Feast at Karak
Last Sunday, we were invited to a durian feast by the owners of Restoran Sri Karak. We traveled to Karak, Pahang to visit their durian farm. Since they owned their own durian farm or orchard, they can do private durian feast for their clients or customers.
We have tried many types of durians but this is our first time to visit such durian farm or durian orchard. Hence, we are very thankful to Jen for inviting us to a durian feast at their private durian farm at Karak.
Many people probably knows about Bentong and Raub, Karak is the one of the towns in Pahang too and it is popular for durian orchards.
We seldom wake up so early on Sundays but for durian feast, it was worth it. It took us almost an hour of driving from Kuala Lumpur to Karak.
This is the road to the durian farm and luckily the road condition is pretty good.
For the durian feast, they prepared around half truck load of durians. There were around 50 people in the group and all the durians are from the farm.
Some of the popular durian types include Red Prawn, Musang King, D24, XO and more.
It was one of the durian available during the durian feast. This is the Red Prawn durian.
We stumbled upon the biggest durian I’ve seen in my life. Its called the “Golden Pillow”. This was weighed around 7 kg, with street value around RM 70. Golden Pillow is a popular durian in Thailand but not so much in Malaysia.
Like the many of the people during the durian feast, we never had “golden pillow” before so they were happily open one of them for us.
The durian was huge and it is almost as big as the size of it on my hand. That was only a seed worth size. The taste was surprisingly sweet, waterish and its very filling. I was told it wasn’t fully ripe yet. If not, it will taste much better.
After a 2 hours of durian feast, we called it a day. Yet, before we leave we saw someting interesting in the farm…
A kitten eatting a durian. We were worried the kitten will get sore throat.
It was an enjoyable durian feast experience at Karak. You don’t find such durian feast anymore as prices of the durians have shot up. Thank again Jen and Restoran Sri Karak for inviting us to their private durian farm for the durian feast in Karak.
