The Durian Ice Cream Shop That Got Listed in Michelin Guide 2016
There is one dessert shop in Macau selling our favourite durians flavours such as D24 and Musang King. It was called Gelatina Mok Yi Kei and now it is better known as Gelatina Musang Mok Yi Kei.
It is a dessert shop with history of over 80 years. Started as a food stand selling toast, it is located on Rua do Cunha in Vila da Taipa selling serradura and durian ice cream. Of course, you can also find pudding, jellies and mango pomelo sago.
We went there a few years ago and there were no D24 and Musang King but recently they added the two.
What is D24 and Musang King durians?
Both of them are different variety of durians. D24 has slight bitter sweet taste and Musang King comes with strong flavour with slight orange yellow flesh. Musang King is one of the most expensive durians in Malaysia and it was the king of durians before the title goes to Black Thorn (another variety of durian).
Of course, D24 and Musang King durians are originated from Malaysia and not everywhere else in the world. If you have eaten D24 or Musang King durians in Singapore, they are imported from Malaysia and same goes to the durian stalls in Hong Kong or China.
Hence, Gelatina Musang Mok Yi Kei got listed under the Michelin Guide Macau 2016 Street Food List this year. For a dessert place, it is a big achievement and we should be proud as they are selling our top durian flavours.
We tasted their normal durian ice cream a few years back and it was good but not the best. To be fair, we didn’t taste their new D24 and Musang King flavour and of course that will taste better.
The dessert place is often packed with tourists in Rua do Cunha. On top of their popular durian ice cream, we recommend you to taste their Serradura (a Portuguese dessert).
Imagine if there is a Michelin Guide in Malaysia, wonder how many durian ice cream places will get listed?
If you are traveling to Macau, remember to visit Rua do Cunha and they are located on the corner shop of number 9. You can spot the long queue with the huge sign board of Gelatina Musang King Mok Yi Kei.

If you plan to visit Macau, we will recommend AirAsia as the first choice as it flies direct from Kuala Lumpur to Macau.
We have been flying with AirAsia for years and we flew with them to other destinations too. Hence, in recent years we flew from Kuala Lumpur to Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Macau. We also flew with AirAsiaX from Kuala Lumpur to Australia and Japan.
