To find Bukit Merah Lane’s freshest addition, follow your nose. Although the air in this tyre store and car workshop hub is thick with the acrid tang of rubber and heady aroma of mechanical grease, a distinct new note pricks through that chemical cocktail these days: The pongy scent of durian. And tracking it will lead you to a shiny new store wedged in an unassuming row of HDB shophouses.

This is where your search will bear fruit, literally. The gleaming, minimalist space is Durian Lab, one half of a new venture by popular Ghim Moh market durian seller Shui Poh Sing (better known as Ah Seng) and his family. The other half in the double unit is a new outpost of Ah Seng Durian, which sells the same thorny fruit at the same prices as those you get at Ghim Moh, except that this outlet only entertains walk-ins.
