Durian is the king of fruit. It looks very intimidating with the spikes and the size. Many who live where durians are grown have two reactions to it. It is, either you love it or you hate it. Durian contains tryptophan, a chemical that raise the serotonin level in our brain. Serotonin is responsible for Euphoric feeling. Tryptophan is something that is good for those who are anxious and depressed and also insomniacs.

Thus, Durian is actually a comfort food. Many people cannot resist their urge to eat durian when they have developed an acquired taste for it.

More about Durian in posts to come.
