Durian Feast at Karak

Last Sunday, I was invited to a durian feast by the owners of Sri Karak Restaurant. Me and my wife, Rachel traveled to Karak, Pahang to visit their durian farm. The sources of their durian products were all directly from their durian farm. It was our first time to visit such durian farm. We were excited and happy for the invitation. Thank you Jen for the invitation, really appreciate it.

Except for marathons, we seldom wake up early on Sunday. Approx. an hour driving from KL, we reached Karak.

Then, we were brought into their private durian farm.

We were shown a 1/2 truck load of durians available for the durian feast. We were joined by a group of 50++ people for the feast. Many good grades durians were there. It includes “Red Prawn”, “Mau San Wong”, D24, X.O and others.

It was one of the premium durian available that day. If not mistaken, its either “Red Prawn” or XO.

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.

Like the rest, we never had “golden pillow” before so they were happily open one of them for us.

It was huge. Checked out 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…
