Durians: you will either love the fruit for its creamy and fragrant flesh or hate it simply because it smells like farts. If you belong to the category of durian-loving people, how does a buffet where you can eat all the durians to your hearts’ content sounds for you?
Here is something that will absolutely make you go nuts once you know about it. RWS is holding its annual Durian Fest between 19-21 Aug at 6pm – 7.30pm and 8pm – 9.30pm, and they are offering their members a chance to indulge in an all-you-can-eat durian buffet, featuring a premium selection of durians such as the all-time favourite Mao Shan Wang durian and many others. All you have to do as an RWS member is to fork out $160 for 2 Adult tickets for the festival and to make this deal even sweeter, they are throwing in a free renewal of your membership privileges.
If you are not an RWS member, fret not, as you will not be missing out on this deal as RWS is also extending this offer to the public. For those who wish to attend the durian festival, an adult ticket is priced at $98 and if you wish to sign up for a package deal, it is also priced at $160 for two along with free RWS memberships.
Online reviews of the Durian Fest held in previous years have largely been positive, with many netizens commenting that the price of admission is definitely worth the experience as you get to sample a wide range of premium durians. If you are sick of eating durians, you can also get your hands on other fruits such as rambutans and mangosteens.
On top of getting to sample some of the best durians, you will not have to get your hands dirty during the event as there are servers who will be on hand to bring the durians to you. Gloves are also provided for those who love to eat durians but are afraid of their smell lingering on their finger. In addition, if you are worried about getting too “heaty” from over-indulging on durians, there is free-flow coconut juice served to them. Previous Durian Fests are so popular that tickets are sold out fast and before you regret missing out on this, you should get your tickets as soon as possible!
