We can feel our arteries getting clogged just by looking at this.

A restaurant in Penang recently made many a jaw drop after a video by food blog Penang Foodie featuring its Musang King Burger went viral on social media.

Dubbed the "First in Malaysia", the heart-stopping combo of durian and cheese is the brainchild of Ric's Burger, a burger joint in Bayan Lepas, Penang and costs RM25.90 per pop.

Not only is the burger drenched with a super thick melted cheese and durian sauce, the patty itself is made with Musang King durian stuffed with mozzarella cheese and butter

The patty is then coated with egg and breadcrumbs before being deep-fried and topped with the aforementioned rich sauce. Methinks that's a nose bleed waiting to happen. 

While we're at it, let's take a look at these bizarre instances a perfectly good piece of durian was paired with savoury foods:

1. Durian in Maggi Kari

2. Durian bak kut teh

3. Milo Kaw Cheese Durian drink

You have Cheese Banjir, a restaurant at Desa Pandan, Kuala Lumpur to thank for this nosebleed-inducing concoction. 

4. Nasi lemak with durian sambal

The above dish can be found at Durian Kingdom in Central Market, Kuala Lumpur. 

5. Nasi lemak with fried durian

6. Fries with musang king cheese sauce

You can find this dish at Durianity, a restaurant serving durian-flavoured everything in Puchong. 

7. Fried rice with durian

8. Durian-infused vodka

It's actually part of a cocktail called The King (also contains Baileys Irish Cream, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, orgeat almond syrup, vanilla ice cream, and cinnamon powder) at The Locker & Loft at Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya. 

9. Durian chicken hot pot
