According to our favorite investigative reporter, durian will soon be a featured item at critically-acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant/lounge Bong Su. Pastry chef Matthew Mina has allegedly started experimenting with the stinky Asian fruit (which supposedly tastes pretty good). Mina plans to use it in a pudding dish alongside white chocolate in some capacity. Could this be the start of a new durian trend? Will durian juice soon take over the Whole Foods drinks section like Pom did several years ago? Will someone start producing durian lotions and bath products? Stay tuned.
