Ah Seng Durian
Location: Blk 20 Ghim Moh Market, #01-197
Gang Hai is one of those durians that tends to drift in and out of season. Staying for a few weeks and then suddenly disappearing again. Ah Seng describes gang hai as a 'beginners durian' - For those who are not used to the strong pungent flavours of durian, then gang hai acts as a perfect introduction to the world of durians. The flavour is very mild, the texture is clotted and creamy and the seeds are reasonable small, and have a unique teardrop shape. Nutty flavour and an undertone of sweetness can be detected in this durian. It is mild, but not mild in the sense of D24 (tastes of nothing), which is probably the most overrated durian on the planet. Structure wise, this durian has a similar physiological shape to red prawn, as many of the husks have a thin 'tail' at the rear.

Tawa durian. This durian can be found only during the second season, and usually only sticks around for 2-3 weeks, before disappearing again. The sheer mystery surrounding this durian made me eager for the second season to arrive, as I have never previously sampled tawa durian. Tawa is a pale fleshed bitter durian. The flesh has a certain milky flavour, not too disimilar to XO. However, the flesh of tawa is silky smooth, without any clumps. The seed is small, long and thin in shape. The overall shape of this durian can differ - But, it can be said the thorns on this durian are similar to MSW, and the durian is long in structure.

Conclusion - Ah Seng is one of the few places where customers can pick up tawa durian. As the popular saying goes - '
