Basically liu sha bao (Golden Lava Buns) but better — duh, because it’s durian.

The way the smooth, rich durian puree oozes out of the bun is a metaphor for all the good things in life.

Who cares if it’s Mao Shan Wang, Red Lobster or D24? You’ll probably still be obsessed after taking a bite.


Did we mention how adorable the bun is because it’s shaped to look like an actual durian?


What’s better is that Phoenix Lava freshly bakes their buns every single day.

Don’t say we bojio — try it now, and thank us later.

Who is Phoenix Lava?

Phoenix Lava is a famous bakery known for their adorable and tasty lava buns.


Even if you can’t take the odour – ahem, fragrance, ahem – of durian, there are tons of flavourful options to choose from!

Not to mention cute packaging.

Cheese Bacon Lava Bun is definitely on our 10 things to eat before we die list.


Don’t be fooled by the next picture; those aren’t actually Mandarin Oranges.

They are the adorable Chinese New Year lava buns that we wouldn’t mind exchanging our mandarins for.


Unfortunately they only have outlets in Bangkok, Western Thailand and one branch in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

*Cue intense sobbing of every durian enthusiast in Singapore*

When there is a will, there is a way

If you find yourself in Bangkok over the Labour Day weekend, do check out their most accessible flagship outlet at:

Name: Phoenix Lava (ฟีนิกซ์ ลาวา)
Address: Central World, 5th Floor, Isetan Zone, Ratchadamri Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok, Pathum Wan


While these buns aren’t for sale in Singapore now, you can get someone to deliver these buns straight to your doorstep.

Sites like Airfrov and Tompang are the keys to the world of delicious durian lava buns.

Why wait until durian season to start indulging?

Or rather, can you stand the wait?

For durians, every day is cheat day.
