My love of Starfruit.

Starfruit, inside

.

*Location : At the roof top of a Hongout Hostel at Singapore.

.

*Thought : At a grocery store, one of my favorite places to visit when I’m away, I found this amazing fruit. Sometimes English naming surprises me. It is literally ‘Star’ fruit, right? It is so right, and genius name.

.

As a person who deeply involved with Astronomy, anything shapes like star get my interest. This star fruit became my favorite thing in  as soon as I saw. Not just the shape I loved, the taste. I am not a sweet tooth, so I don’t like too sweet fruits either, so Starfruit is just perfect for my taste. Little bit sour, like.. a grapefruit which I also like.

.

Everyday I bought several Star fruits and had it for dinner or with other food. Star fruit juice as well.

.

My love of Starfruit, it never stops! It totally deserve pick for my Travel Photo of the week! Don’t you think?

    I love star fruit, and remember the first time I had it here in the U.S. I haven’t seen it in the grocery store on a while…maybe it’s time for a trip to the Singapore or Malaysia…

  2. I’m not sure, but it certainly looks like a fruit in Brazil that is called ‘carambola’. I don’t remember the taste, but we had it in our house (the plant) when I was a kid.

      I think you are right! Google says it is. 🙂 Wonderful! So you can grow that in the yard! Awesome.. Shamd I don’t live in Tropical atmosphere. 🙂

  3. Hi Juno, it’s interesting to see foreigners fascinated with our local produce, I.e; starfruits:) I like starfruits too! The Chinese here (Malaysia) rub a lil salt and eat, apparently to reduce heatiness. But the fruit itself is cooling. It’s nice to juice it too.
    Love ur blog!:)

      Right. 🙂 So you see everyday in supermarket, right? I really miss Starfruit juice. It’s perfect taste! 🙂
      Fresh, sour mmmm
      but with salt? Don’t know about that.. It makes taste better? 🙂 Maybe!
      Thanks!

  4. why dont you try to dip it with rojak sauce. (refer this link : http://www.malaysianfood.net/recipes/reciperojak.htm) it’s easy to make. trust me, it will give extra flavours to your starfruit! 😀

    p/s: if you dont have time to make it, just prepare some soy sauce, mix it with a lil bit of sugar. (if you love spicy food, add some chopped thai bird chillies and tadaaa~ enjoy dipping!
