Huh?  New Paper quotes them as saying they sell at $16 per kg. Already slightly higher than normal.

try Hock at 91461192 - Bought twice this season. Mao Shang Wang around $12-13/kg while Golden Phoenix around $12/kg. His shop is next to Two Chefs Zi Char at Blk 116 Commonwealth Drive. Found him to be an honest bloke and you can leave your contact so that he will contact you when there is good durians.

Also, just to side track on durians for those who are into durian ice cream, I found the durian ice cream at Majestic Restaurant to be excellent. So far, I have found this to be the best durian ice cream in Singapore. The Majestic branch Jing at Fullerton doesn't do it as well as Majestic.

Bro, what do u think of the Mao Shan Wong ice cream at Udders?

Also the Peramakan (sp?) restaurant at Keppel Club does some pretty good durian puffs (off menu).

Ah, how is it presented? Frozen with panko flakes on the outside then fried?

Frozen with a very thin layer of flour (I think). Can't quite figure it out but its not the thick layer of flour that you find in other restaurants. They also add a mango sauce on the side. See the picture here as I am no cook. http://www.cnngo.com/singapore/none/5-singapore-musteat-foods-028722

Description here from CNN.

Fried durian ice cream
I’ll admit that eating this dish takes a little bit of courage. After all, to the uninitiated, durian, Singapore’s favorite fruit, smells like old, dirty sweatsocks stuffed with garlic. Nonetheless, Singaporeans are as passionate about their durian as Frenchmen are for stinky cheese. Chef Yong Bing Ngen has created what many consider to be the best durian dessert on the island. The secret behind Chef Yong’s fried durian ice cream is that it’s not really ice cream. Because the flesh of the fruit is so naturally creamy, the talented cook found that if he froze it, then quickly battered it and deep-fried it, the resulting texture was something akin to ice cream. Durian lovers have been known to swoon when tasting this delightful hot and cold dessert.

Majestic Restaurant
New Majestic Hotel, 31-37 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore. tel +65 6511 4718.

Curious, sounds quite easy. So the filling is just frozen normal durian. Seems a bit of cheat  :P :P
