    I didn't see it at Ranch 99, but when I was in Sacramento I found refrigerated durians in plastic boxes (no shell). VERY NICE! I had to eat it outside because my roommates at the time hated the smell.

    I told him Singapore. And it drew a blank.

    After some more explanation I drew another blank.

    I was tired after carrying a heavy camera bag going around shooting. So I sighed and said, "Well, it's just a Little Red Dot."

    You know what the black guy replied?

    "Hey man you don't mean Mee Siam Mai Ham?"

    you friggin' serious?!?

    No, in a Spanish-speaking restaurant. In Italian that would be "Pietra bianca", with the same meaning: white stone.

    Great thread, by the way.
