Co-owner Of Durian Plantation Opens Dessert Stall In Newton Selling MSW Durian Tau Huay & Mousse
Most folks who visit Newton Food Centre usually have ice kacang or cheng tng for dessert — but now there’s a more atas option via the literally named Durian Desserts by Tiong Bahru Durian, which opened its stall at the hawker centre two months ago. It serves only two items: Mao Shan Wang or D24 durian mousse topped with fresh puree, and sweet soya beancurd laden with a scoop of durian flesh.
Co-owner Long Soon Wai, 51, says the stall’s selling point is an assurance of quality, as it uses durians from a farm which he owns a stake in, from the Raub district of Pahang, Malaysia.
The fruit is exported to Singapore, where it is processed and deseeded in Soon Wai’s central kitchen. The resulting pulp is supplied to bakeries, hotels and dessert shops, including cheesecake chain Cat & The Fiddle, The St. Regis Singapore hotel and of course, his own hawker stall at Newton.
