Good Quality Durian at Tiendesitas

29 08 2009

One Saturday, just before we head home, to the insistence of my friend’s mom, we checked out Tiendesitas to buy some durian.  It was almost 11 p.m. and we were fortunate co’z ECJ (stands for Eduardo Cojuangco, Jr.) Farms was still open.  And we were lucky indeed co’z I’ve learned that durian is available only a few months a year.  I was ecstatic!

I didnt’ know there’s a store in the Food Village that sells durian (frozen durian, ice cream and cake).   So durian is the bestseller among the various offerings which include other local fruits, organic vegetables, herbs and a number of delicacies.  

ECJ Farms offers a Thai variety of the fruit but is locally grown.  The microwable pack priced at Php180 contains about 4 giant pulps (with  smaller seeds compared to the native and other local varieties like Chanee, Puyat and Arancillo).   Satisfying indeed!   The durian addicts will love its sweet, thick and creamy texture.
