Geylang Durian Stalls
The stretch of durian stalls along Sims Avenue and Geylang Road is informally dubbed Geylang Durian Street – often you’ll see durian available here all-year round! Not all of them offer delivery, but they are worth checking out if you’d like to choose a durian yourself and have more bargaining power or the freedom to buy durian in smaller quantities. Some of them also offer tables so you can crack a durian open and indulge on the spot – plastic gloves included! Pro tip: if you prefer using your bare hands, keep the husks of the durian to wash your hands with afterwards. They do a good job of removing every trace of durian smell from your fingers.
