Rayong Durian Chips: I’m Lovin’ It

Bf’s mom bought me a pack of Prai Pan พรๅยพรรณ durian chips from Rayong, and I am head over heels in love with it!

These deep-fried-unripe-durian-chips are more-thinly sliced, lighter and airier, compared to the my usual Mae Lamom แม่ละม่อม brand. I like it that some parts of the chips have turned a darker shade versus the the standard golden color. It tasted homey, like it’s produced in family homes. What is there not to love?

I was told that Rayong province is famous for fruits, and from May until mid July, durian rules! The Tourism Authority of Thailand even organizes Rayong Fruit Festival during this period, and all hell breaks lose. Stay away, if you can’t stand the sight and smell of the King of Fruits. Psst .. It is also possible to arrange for Fruit Farm Tour at Rayong.

Now that I have eaten great durian chips, I’ve kind of become a durian chip-snob. Things can never be the same again.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
