Many people love the durians from Penang and the best time to indulge in the King of Fruits this year is from the month of May to late July. This year’s durian season is much later due to the unpredictable weather.

Many will make a visit to the durian farms located around Teluk Bahang, Pantai Aceh and Balik Pulau, with the latter being the most popular area for durian seekers. Most of these farms are closed to the public and only a few are open and even then, they tend to be more of eco-tourism orientated.

There are plenty of ice kacang (shaved ice) with many variations in town but there is one ice kacang that really stands through time and it is found in Kek Seng coffee shop. It is located along Penang Road in Georgetown and has been in business for many years.

Many people will agree that Kek Seng is the best place for ice kacang with its signature homemade colorful agar-agar jelly and durian ice cream besides other toppings of red bean and jagung (creamy corn). The bowl of ice kacang is drenched with colorful sweet sugar syrup and dose with evaporated milk.

Taking a break from all the food for once, and indulging in some of the best fruits Penang has to offer!

It is always a good time to visit Penang and especially now when the great durian season is on. Just imagine going on a makan trip in Penang to feast on the King of Fruits, Durian! Our family just loves the thorny spikes durian with its strong pungent aromatic flesh. There are numerous stalls in town. Recently I took my aunt and uncle who came for a visit from Singapore to try out the durian at one of the popular stall, Penang Ah Teik Durian Stall. This stall is located right beside the Sun Yat Sen building in Lorong Susu/Mccalister Road.
