Wrinkly,yellowy and oh so creamy in the mouth ,we thank the universe there’s a season for this and not available all year around or we’d be in a durian-coma.

Inheriting the essence of sweetness and creaminess with a hint of bitterness to it, Musang king is treasured for its balanced combo to many durian-philes out there. 30 feet from Ah Teik stalls, the name of this stall is an optimum effort at attracting the choosy customers.
