Summer’s favourite fruit- mango, is here and there are endless ways in which you can relish it. Simply cubed or pureed as aamras, or even added to enhance desserts, to which it lends itself with ease. Both Indian and global mango desserts are delicious and pastry chefs are going all out to create unique ones to wow your taste buds. There is nothing called too much of mango, so just indulge in sweet mango delights while these last this summer. Here are my top picks in Mumbai
Mango Tres Leche at The Monkey Bar, Bandra
As part of their Mango Unchained promotion, The Monkey Bar is treating you to a plethora of mango desserts as well. This creamy Mango Tres Leche, just gets more sinful with the addition of mangoes. The distinct texture of this aesthetically presented dessert is striking and the mangoes only up the flavour quotient and leave you drooling.
Mango Jalebi at Khandani Rajdhani, Ghatkopar
Who can resist a sweet and syrupy jalebi and when it is filled with Alphonso mango, it is pure decadence. Khandani Rajdhani serves you this sweet treat as part of their sumptuous thali with mango delicacies galore this season. Bite into this piping hot fried jalebi and have the mango puree fill your palate. Need I say more? Head to try this unique dessert if you have not already.
Fresh mango cheesecake at Poetry by Love and Cheesecake, Kalaghoda
The cheesecakes here are to die for and the seasonal special with mango is a treat you must-not-miss. This melt-in-the-mouth cheesecake is smooth and creamy and each bite leaves you longing for more.
Mango Tart at Theobroma, Colaba
A bite into this creamy and crunchy mango tart bursting with the goodness of a sweet and juicy mango, is stuff dreams are made of. The mango filling of the tart is generous and envelopes your taste buds with its freshness.
Mango Ice Cream sandwich at K. Rustom Ice Cream, Churchgate
Any ice cream sandwich here is worth travelling for from any part of the city, but the Mango Ice-Cream Sandwich in summer is the piece de resistance without a doubt. The chunky sandwich upon the first bite gives way to mango ice cream and one can experience the cold, sweet flavours all at one go.
