A new spot for durian has popped up in the west: from July 18 - August 21, 2022, Jurong Point is hosting a Durian Fiesta event.
Every Tuesday and Thursday
During this period, a 60-minute buffet will take place at Level 1 of the mall (in front of City Hotpot) every Tuesday and Thursday, from 8pm to 10pm.
There are two tiers to the all-you-can-eat-experience, pegged at S$38 and S$88.
For S$38, you can take part in the D24 Durian Buffet, while S$88 gives you access to the Premium Durian Buffet that includes Mao Shan Wang (MSW) from Pahang.
Complimentary mineral water will be provided.
Note, however, that the set-up is outdoors and not in the mall itself (and reasonably so, owing to the fruit's pungency), which means no air-conditioning while you're eating.
Here's a more comprehensive price list, where children 12 and below eat for cheaper, and M Mall members get 10 per cent off their total bill.
D24 Durian Buffet
Price: S$38 (Adult), S$20 (Child)
M Malls Member: S$34.20 (Adult), S$18 (Child)
Premium Durian Buffet (including Mao Shan Wang)
Price: S$88 (Adult), S$40 (Child)
M Malls Member: S$79.20 (Adult), S$36 (Child)
Durians for sale
If you're not up for a buffet, the fiesta is also selling fresh durians on an à la carte basis.
The first 50 shoppers daily who spend at least S$80 or purchase a Pahang Premium Mao Shan Wang Durian (2kg and above) will get a D24 durian (1.8kg to 2.1kg) for free.
This promotion is valid during the fiesta's opening hours, weekdays from 5pm to 10pm, and weekends from 3pm to 10pm.
