Goodwood Park Hotel Durian Fiesta
It's durian time again at Goodwood Park Hotel. The much loved Durian Fiesta runs from 1 March to 31 July 2012. This year they have introduced two new items:
1. The Durian Banana Chocolate Mousse Cake (S$10.80 per slice; S$58 per 1.3kg cake) - a cake filled with layers of D24 durian mousse and pulp, rich chocolate mousse, chocolate sponge and caramelized bananas, then enrobed with dark chocolate powder. The combination of chocolate, durian and banana works a lot better than I expected. Definitely worth trying if you love durian.
2. The Durian Macadamia Nut Crumble Tartlet (S$28.80 for six pieces) shown in the middle here with two durian puffs. The tartlet is a decadent treat of creamy D24 durian pulp covered with a crunchy macadamia nut crumble. If only it was as big as a pie. One is just not enough!
Of course, the usual favourites are still there - durian mousse cake, durian cappuccino cake, durian puff, durian crepe, and even durian ice cream. There's going to be a Mao Shan Wang Power Puff too in June.
