Honest review of the durian desserts from Forbidden

Premium durian creations, including the Mao Shan Wang Durian Roulade and D24 Cigar Roll, are going to get durian lovers excited!

Baked with all natural ingredients and filled with premium D24 durians, the D24 Cigar Roll (8pcs) (S$12.5) is a finely rolled Japanese langue de chat cookie that has a light buttery crisp.

Because of its airy and non-gelat texture, you might just find yourself unknowingly munching on a second piece, and a third piece, and another.

Next is the must-try Mao Shan Wang Durian Roulade (S$47). It comes in a castella cake roll, layered with Pandan-infused kaya and a decadent 100% premium durian filling. Also, the aromatic infusion of the Pandan flavours is a great complement to the durian filling.

The cake by itself is slightly dense. However, the overall combination is close to perfect when paired with the kaya and durian. Therefore, resulting in a perfect mouthfeel; biting into the centre is like sinking your teeth into the flesh of a premium durian.

Warning to all durian lovers. This is more addictive than nicotine
