Durian lovers can never seem to get enough of the King of Fruits. However, a feast fit for a king can rack up the bill quickly, as the price for durians is directly related to how much they weigh, and this usually includes the durian husk – which can be rather bo hua especially if the durian seeds are extra large!
The good news is, durian buffets are now a thing, and for a fixed price you can enjoy different varieties of durian, along with all-you-can-eat durian desserts and dishes! Read on to find out where you can enjoy a durian buffet in Singapore.
