Durian is widely known and revered as the King of Fruits in Southeast Asia.
With its thorny husk, it deters the timid and attracts the brave. Yet, its thorny husk is not its most powerful weapon. It is the foul odor that discourages gourmets from tasting the King of Fruits.
However, not everyone regards durians as smelly. There are people who find the fruit fragrant and delicious.
Aside from durian, there are durian ice kachang, durian ice cream, durian milkshakes, durian mooncakes and durian Yule logs. Aren’t the pictures just mouthwatering?
With the numerous durian products in the market, you can always start with these to build up your courage to eat the real durian!
2. Stinky Tofu
Stinky tofu is a form of fermented tofu. It is a snack that is sold mostly at nightmarkets or roadside stands or as a side dish in lunch bars rather than in restaurants. Likewise, it has a strong odor like durian. Hence, explaining why it is sold outdoors and never indoors.
Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings.
Regarded as the staple food for Koreans, kimchi is a main ingredient for many Korean dishes such as kimchi stew, kimchi soup and kimchi fried rice.
Since kimchi is deeply embedded in the lives of many Koreans, its smell isn’t overpowering for the citizens. However, the smell might be offensive for tourists who aren’t used to it.
