The Durian Story prides itself for selling quality durians imported from “world-recognised harvesting spots” at competitive prices.

6. Combat Durian Balestier
After Ah Seng Durian, Combat Durian is probably the next best known durian seller in Singapore. Their durians seem a little more expensive and they sell out very quickly, but the good thing is that they only do walk-ins. The durians arrive at 3pm and 6pm, so you know what time to camp for the goodies.

9. Durian 36
From their Facebook reviews, it seems like Durian 36 has quite the passionate following (4/5 stars, 99 reviews). Past customers gush about the fruits being the “best durians (they’ve) ever tasted” and that you can “trust them with checking” the durians.
Their prices seem a little steep – especially the premium Mao Shan Wang – but for the regular one, it’s actually reasonable. They charge by the fruit ($20), and each one is around 1.4kg to 1.6kg. That makes it about $13.30 per kg.
