Oh, that's cool. Where did you take this picture?

Superstore, for anyone who doesn't really know, is kinda like your WALMART SUPERCENTER stores, but smaller scale. They have everything in one stop: clothing, photo developing, electronics, groceries, pharmacy, just no restaurants.

I quite like them.

Durian

The only fruit I will not try on the basis that Andrew Zimmern gagged on one (and if you've seen Bizarre Foods, the things he puts in his mouth, chews and swallows, are well.. bizarre) that and my brother bought one, and ended up throwing 98% of it away.

I've seen these many times but never tried one. After reading this description from Wikipedia, I'm more curious and will probably see if I can find one somewhere in the next few days.

    The five cells are silky-white within, and are filled with a mass of firm, cream-coloured pulp, containing about three seeds each. This pulp is the edible part, and its consistence and flavour are indescribable. A rich custard highly flavoured with almonds gives the best general idea of it, but there are occasional wafts of flavour that call to mind cream-cheese, onion-sauce, sherry-wine, and other incongruous dishes. Then there is a rich glutinous smoothness in the pulp which nothing else possesses, but which adds to its delicacy. It is neither acid nor sweet nor juicy; yet it wants neither of these qualities, for it is in itself perfect. It produces no nausea or other bad effect, and the more you eat of it the less you feel inclined to stop. In fact, to eat Durians is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience. ... as producing a food of the most exquisite flavour it is unsurpassed.



A couple more colorful descriptions:

Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia

I'm not sure the US allows import, technically. I was excited to see them in real life at the Superstore! and surreptiously took a cell phone picture for posterity (and to brag to my brother-in-law, who also wants to try one - me, I saw "Fear Factor" once and know better).

I did NOT buy one because at the time I was sure that opening it would have gotten us kicked out of our hotel. In retrospect, I'm not so sure.

I don't believe so.

I saw the episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations (where that "french-kissing your dead grandmother" quote came from) where he went to Indonesia and ate durian, and apparently these things smell so foul that they're banned from a lot of public places. My girlfriend used to work at a Superstore (sorry, "Superstore!") and said that they warned all the new employees to never ever accidentally drop or damage a durian or it would crack open and stink up the whole place.

I'm thinking it's a continuation of "CRZ's Cell Phone Camera Tour of Superstore". Behind the snack bar, perhaps?

They are not banned, and occasionally you can find them at a very large asian specialty store in their very own extra cold fridge. My brother bought one.

He says it was really hard to open and required a hatchet and throwing it on the ground a couple times to get it open and then it smelled like "bad onions" and tasted similar. I asked him if the "french kissed your dead grandmother" quote seemed apt, and he said "Yes, but oniony".
