Looking for a good durian buffet in PJ where quality comes first? Then you should definitely consider Sinnaco Durian Specialist. They offer different buffet packages that you can choose according to your desire and budget.
Both their stall and shop can found along Durian Street in Section 19, a newly minted place where a few other durian stalls are also located at.
Sinnaco refuses to serve durian kampung buffet because they find the quality to be too volatile. So their cheapest package “Standard Type D” @ RM38 already includes branded durians such as D3, D4, D7, D10, D8, D14 and D15.
After weighing the options available, we decided to try the “Premium Grade (mountain slope)” durian buffet @ RM68/pax since one of our favorites D24 is part of the offering.
FYI the most expensive durian buffet here is none other than Musang King buffet which goes for RM158/pax. But for those who like their Facebook page, you get to enjoy a RM20 discount.
Here are some of the durians are included in the package, from left to right: D24, D13, Mas Pahang, Sultan and Jantung. And as usual, if you want them to be arranged nicely, just ask for the durian pulps to be stacked on top.
Among all the types of durian we had, the D24 was undeniably the most enjoyable one. It had a glossy and wrinkly skin, while the flesh was thick and extremely creamy. This alone beat all the other D24 durians we had at SK6363 not long ago.
The Sultan durian is similar to D24 in terms of taste and texture, but the flesh to seed ratio is much lower. If you like D24 you will most likely appreciate Sultan as well.
It’s obvious where Durian Jantung got its name from. The flesh is creamy and melts in your mouth with a balanced sweet and bitter taste.
D13 is for those who like a complex flavored durian with a fruity, wine-like aroma. The flesh is also more orange than the rest.
Just like the name says, the Mas Pahang durian has shiny golden colored pulps. It was also the sweetest tasting one we had that night.
Satisfied with the quality of durians, we decided to take away a Musang King (RM42/kg, thick flesh with tiny seeds) for my in-laws. Depending on the season, you’d get to choose from Pahang (Raub or Bentong), Johor or Perak.
As you’d have expected, those from Raub are the most expensive while Perak ones are the cheapest. Honestly speaking, not many durian sellers out there would segregate their supply clearly by region. Most of them would just declare their stocks of Musang King all originate from Raub for maximum profits.
During our visit the mangosteens were priced at RM9/kg.
Sinnaco’s shop is clean and maybe more importantly, air-conditioned so you can enjoy the durians comfortably. It is no doubt the most properly set up durian shop in the area. For the durian buffet, it’s the same question all over again whether if it’s worth paying for. If you have a considerable appetite and can finish at least two fruits by yourself, then you would have eaten your worth.
For those who are more concerned about the quality, what I can tell from our experience is that the durians we had were excellent. We didn’t have to send any of them back since all of them met our expectations. In fact, I am still thinking about the D24 now, it’s just so good.
To put it bluntly, Sinnaco’s durian buffet IS the better deal in town. Another durian stall nearby is offering eat-all-you-can durian kampung at RM35, which is baffling to me considering you can get durian kampung super cheap now, like 2 or 3 fruits for RM10. So why not spend a little more to enjoy branded durians instead?
