When I read the Hostess Fruit Pie, all I could think of was Darin...he seemed to eat his weight in those things when I was in Vancouver...

Michelin star restaurants are the creme-de-la-creme of restaurants, whereyou pay something like $400+ not including drinks. Never been to one either, don't plan to. Not sure Canada even has one.

I have had durian. For the longest time, I refused to even think of eating it. But then, after I tried eating stinky tofu, I thought I would beat all my fellow foreigners to the punch. Almost no foreigners like stinky tofu, and will entertain the eating of durian even less.
My curiosity paid off. It is incredibly filling, and the taste is much more palatable than the smell exudes from a distance. The aftertaste takes some getting used to, but it is worth eating. Try it sometime. The fruit is a weird sort of combination of pineapple and onion and pear rolled into one single food. Fascinating.
