"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Goodwood Park Hotel

Goodwood Park Hotel is having a special Mao Shan durian puffs this season till 30 June 2011! Get your butts down to satisfy your durian cravings!

Here’s what CP, JH and I had some time back:

We ordered durian puffs, durian cake and durian ice cream cake. The waitress said the durian strudel had to take 1 hour to thaw before they can serve us. Otherwise, we would have ordered that. That looked really delicious!

The durian puffs were really thick and creamy. The durian custard was not too “squishy” and every bite was generous on the durian custard. I wonder if the three of us will be able to find time off to go back for their Mao Shan durian puffs. 🙂 Shall arrange that!

Durian Cake (1 slice) $9
Durian Puff (6 pieces) $14.80
Durian Ice Cream cake (1 piece) $12.80

JH and I went again for the Mao Shan Power Puff! It was really powerful! It was BIG and super flavourful! Much much tastier and “durian-y” than the D24 durian puffs. JH was still busy editing the power puff photograph on her iPhone and I was busy eating away. I just couldn’t resist! When she was finally done, she asked why did I eat so fast! But it was really irresistable!

Mao Shan Power Puff

It looked like Hong Kong’s pineapple bun with a crispy sweet crust. But once you cut it open, the aroma of durian diffused out willingly. Hmmm! Crispy crust with soft durian filling, sweet bun with bitter durian… totally took my senses away! I would have preferred if the durian filling was more pulpy.

Durian buffet is now on till 17th July 2011 at $26.80++ per person. However the choices are limited and durian ice-cream is not included.

Mao Shan Power Puff (1 piece) $12.80

Prices exclude 7% GST and 10% service charges.
