Hehe I was being a “orang bandar”. I have no idea what was a buah salak (Salak fruit) when I saw this snake skin little fruit.
I was visiting SS3 pasar malam recently to do a pasar malan review when I came across this fruit. I was staring and asking so many questions about the fruit until he gave me one to try. He also told me where the fruit came from and how to pick good ones.
The ones I bought were from Indonesia, but they are also easily found in east Malaysia. You will need to pick the hard ones. Big and fat and rounded. The skin is hard but easily peel off the flesh.
The fruit taste a little fermented. A very unique taste that is not to everyone’s liking. A few of my malay friends that love the fruit told me the fruit is often used in “jeruk” in Indonesia.
