Tis’ the season to be smelly, durian-lah lah lah lah lahhhh
Yes, friends. Durian season is upon us. The best time of the year, the most wonderful time of the year when your papa comes home a with sack of aromatic gifts. It’s basically Malaysian Christmas lah.
But for *some* reason, people just can’t leave our precious durian alone. First McDonald’s released a durian McFlurry. Then Ikea went a little nuts with durian frappes, durian tarts and a durian cendol cake.
Well, strap in durian fans because a Penang restaurant has decided to give us Malaysians something we never ever asked for…
Musang King durian burger
Yes, durian burger exists thanks to a burger restaurant in Bayan Lepas, Penang called Ric’s Burger.
Made with the king of the King of Fruits, Musang King, the burger consists of a breaded Musang King & mozzarella cheese patty and topped with a melty paste of durian and cheese.
Sounds… um.. interesting..
The durian burger
abomination went viral after a popular blog site, Penang Foodie shared the news.
Of course, whenever someone messes with Malaysian food, especially durian, it prickles a lot of people on the internet. And we mean A LOT.
Translation: I like burger. I like durian. But this is offensive.

Translation: Oh my god, durian burger. Whaaaaaatttt.
Clearly, this is a thorny issue.
So, are you willing to try the burger or stick with the SS2 durian stalls?
