Out of all of these years I've been in Singapore, I can't believe that I haven't taken a more conscious note of these things. I mean, I've seen them around, but I never really took the time to eat them. These were mangosteens, a local fruit unrelated to the mango.
The meat inside looked like cloves of garlic, but were juicy and with a texture a bit like a lychee. Most importantly, they were very tangy, which instantly resonated with me. Known as the Queen of Fruits, it was fitting that we got it during a run for durian, or the King of Fruits.
