Goodwood Park Durian Buffet 2019
The famous Goodwood Park Durian Fiesta usually happens during durian season between May and July. However, this year it’s back again at the hotel’s Coffee Lounge, and will be running for a month from 12 October. Prices are way steeper though at $56.80++ per person. This is in comparison to the durian buffet that happened earlier this year, which only costs 39.80++.
A must-try is the D24 Pandan Lapis Coconut Cake ($16 per slice, $88 for 1kg). The fluffy pandan sponge went surprisingly well with the layers of rich durian mousse, with shredded coconut flakes offering a little variety in texture to each bite.
Don’t be fooled by this Magnum lookalike. Making its first-ever appearance, the Mini D24 Ice Cream Bar ($22 for four) comes in four flavours, namely Dark Chocolate, Almond, Cappuccino and Oreo. I tried the Cappuccino, which has both durian and coffee ice-cream hiding within its crunchy chocolate case. Each bite offered a tasty mix of chocolate, durian and subtle coffee flavours without being overwhelmingly sweet. This is unfortunately also not part of the buffet, but I highly recommend buying some home.
There are many other desserts that are part of the fiesta, including this D24 Ice Cream ($20 per tub, limited to one serving per person at the buffet) that was more like frozen durian pulp than ice-cream. You’ll find nine durian desserts at the buffet, alongside other pastries that are on rotation.
For something savoury to go with the sweets, try Coffee Lounge’s Taiwan Porridge A La Carte Buffet. This hearty feast sees over 30 dishes on the menu, with some highlights being their Baby Squids in Sweet Oyster Sauce, Deep-fried Pomfret in ‘Feng Sha’ Style, and Braised Pork Belly with Dark Soy Sauce.
