Luscious and creamy Mao Shan Wang Durian Ice Cream

Calling all durian fans & aficionados, Coffee’s Lounge Durian Dessert is back – bigger and better! For the first time ever, the much-loved classic buffet will feature durian pastries made with only the finest Mao Shan Wang durians – a step-up in the game from the D24 variety showcased in the previous years. As this exclusive buffet ends on 17 November 2017, lovers of this spiky king of the fruit must hurry to savour the durian-gastronomic spread!

From the moment I stepped inside the pristine Coffee Lounge I was expecting a strong, pungent smell of the famed Mao Shan Wan durian whiffing out and boy was I wrong. It was only when I am one feet or two away from the buffet spread can I detect the aromatic scent of this tropical fruit, thereby keeping the classic-contemporary of the premise, with its exquisite serenity vibe intact.

Mao Shan Wang Sticky Rice – a subtle blend of bitter-sweet to perfection

Apart from the regular desserts currently serving at Coffee Lounge, here’s what you can expect from the veritable spread – Mao Shan Wang Mochi, Mao Shan Wang Waffles and Ice Cream (live station), Mao Shan Wang Sticky Rice, Mao Shan Wang Crumble Tart, Mao Shan Wang Crème Brulee, Mao Shan Wang Éclair, Mao Shan Wang Toast and Mao Shan Wang Pandan Cake. These eight finger-licking creations adds a unique tropical twist to Coffee Lounge’s existing hot and chilled local desserts, cakes and ice cream.

For me, the two must-grab desserts in the Mao Shan Wang (MSW) series is definitely the MSW Crème Brulee and MSW Durian Ice Cream. Sweet, creamy and delicate, the slightly charred top of the Crème Brulee gives that slight crunch to elevate the contrast of its texture. The MSW Durian Ice Cream tastes exactly like biting into the rich savoury meat of MSW and more. You can choose to add-on from the many toppings available, or plop a few scoops onto a fluffy waffle for a sinful indulgence treat.
