Repulsive Smelling Durian Fruit May Be The Next Big Fad In N.Y. Eateries

January 19, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A Michelin-honored Malaysian restaurant in Manhattan is serving up a new dessert based on a “spiky, odiferous fruit” known as the durian. The problem with the fruit, found in Southeast Asia, is the smell, which has been compared to rotting garbage and even kerosene. But despite that, several N.Y. restaurants, cafes and bars are adding the fruit to their menus because of its flavor, which is sweet with hints of melon and onion. Salil Mehta, owner of Laut restaurant, says it is like a mix of mango and jackfruit. [ Durian fruit; image credit: © Wikipedia ]
