Last weekend, dad brought us to Balik Pulau. The main purpose of going to Balik Pulau was to find cheap and good durian stall and eat. Unfortunately, we passed by a lot of durian stalls while on the way to Balik Pulau with the thinking of there’s more stall ahead but as the car moved on, we reached Balik Pulau county but didn’t stop by at any of the stall.
Feeling a little regret, we moved on hoping to catch if there’s any more stall on the way to Teluk Bahang.
Then we spotted a big durian sign with “Eat Here” written on top of it. The main point is not on the RM1 Laksa but on the durian because it’s our durian trip and we’ve already had laksa at Balik Pulau before moving on. There’s RM1 laksa, very cheap, I think is a very small bowl, but then it’s not available on that day.
I don’t really know how to explain the location, it’s somewhere between the above the photo. It’s a big bungalow with Chinese kampung-style look, I guess you can spot the big “Durian Eat Here” thing outside.
I don’t know who is the owner of the house. He or she had the house beautifully painted and decorated, it’s so old school and look good at such a quiet place. It felts nyonya to me. There’s a little garden with table and chairs, for people to sit down and eat durian there.
There’s even a trishaw parked beside the house, I am not sure whether it’s for display or for personal use one. Very cool.
There’s a friendly uncle (not the owner of the house) who can help you to pick a nice durian for you. We ate like 6 durians there and I learnt some names too eg. Ang Hair, Honey, Bak You, Siam Zheng and a lot more which is in the local Hokkien dialect. Do ask for recommendation because I am not a pro in durian but I like the Honey type. It’s not very juicy and kinda sweet.
After eating, we bought home some durian for grandma too. Good place.
