14. Durian Rolls and Pineapple Cakes – Taiwan Style Goodies
- Specially for cult durian lovers
- Decadent pineapple cookie-cakes
While this store might have only three items, these products have a cult-like following in Taiwan. Their pineapple cakes are thicker versions of the cookies and they’re more decadent than you imagine. However, what puts them on the list is their durian rolls. There’s never a bad time for durian and CNY is a good time to have them. While having them fresh might not be appropriate because of the strong smell, serve a subtler version of it with the durian roll (they have a love-letter-like texture) or the durian roulade (swiss roll with a thick durian cream). Whatever the case is, they’re amazing and you should check them out.
