New in town: 99 Old Trees Cafe, Outram Park — Al fresco dining and durian desserts

It goes without saying that the durian has had its fair share of debate — some love it so much they count the days to their next durian buffet, while others wouldn’t even go near one of these pungent yellow fruits with a 10 metre long pole. Well, my durian lovers, 99 Old Trees has something just for you.

I’m sure that 99 Old Trees isn’t an unfamiliar brand to Singaporeans, especially since they often are at the apex of the durian season. The durian delivery service recently announced their move to Outram Park, with a gorgeously decorated al fresco dining area, botanical elements, and all the durian desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.

The Stinky Bomb (S$1.80 a piece) is one of their new offerings, which comes with a minimum order of two of these. Think of soft choux puff piped with rich and creamy mao shan wang cream and topped off with a craquelin crumble. Share it with a friend, or chow down both of them – we won’t tell!

Sink your teeth into a fluffy Japanese swiss roll. Yup, the Stinky Roll (S$6.50+) is filled with durian flesh, and piped with mao shan wang durian French custard cream. Every bite promises a flavour-filled firework; the folks at 99 Old Trees have definitely outdone themselves with this one.

Real dessert enthusiasts will know that the party doesn’t stop there. Don’t forget to tapau yourself the famous Stinky Scoop (S$28), a pint of durian ice-cream perfect to keep you cool when the weather’s hot and the afternoon slump’s kicking in. Don’t balk at the price, because each pint contains the flesh that’s equivalent to two mao shan wang durians. You’ll be getting your money’s worth on this one!

If you’re looking for an excuse to prolong the celebratory high from Chinese New Year, this might be the best way to do it. Grab a couple of your durian-loving friends and family, and head down for a day filled with creamy, luxurious desserts.
They also fulfil online, delivery, and self-pickup orders at this cafe. Islandwide delivery costs S$15.
