May is officially a Mango Month! It is the peak of summer and the king of fruits is available in abundance. When there are so many mangoes in the market that only means a lot of incredible mango based desserts, and, we are excited. These are some of the best mango desserts in Mumbai currently and you are going to enjoy them as much as we do.
Mango Tart at Gustoso, Khar, Western Suburbs - This exquisite Italian restaurant has stolen our heat with their wood fire oven pizza and that beautiful thick crust and their sinful pasta choices but the real star on this menu is the season fresh Mango Tart. This season their fresh fruit tart comes loaded with sliced alphonso mango that sits on top of a crispy tart filled with custard. It is a simple yet fabulous dessert.
Mango Melba at Badshah - This legendary joint has been a favourite for city folks for a long time and while everyone knows how amazing their signature Royal Falooda is, come mango season this is the place to visit! The Mango Melba is this incredible mixture of fresh mango ice cream along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that loaded with thick chunks of mango pieces. It is a very generous dessert and if you are a mango addict then you will enjoy it.
Mango Cheesecake at 145 - This restaurant has a brand new summer menu at all their outlets and the best part is that they have not one but three awesome mango treats, our favourite being the Mango Cheesecake. You can not go wrong with a creamy cheesecake topped with fresh alphonso mango. If the cheesecake is too indulgent then perhaps the fresh mango milkshake with whipped cream might be a better dessert choice.
Mango Waffles at Bastian - This as indulgent as everything else done in that typical Bastian flare. This thick waffle comes with a generous portion of mango cheesecake mango glaze and of course lots of pieces of mango. It is delicious like their other waffles and available only as part of their weekend Brunch menu.
Mango Yogurt Parfait & Mango Crepes at Poetry By Love & Cheesecake - As the name suggests, they do make fabulous cheesecake and you should gorge on their fresh Mango Cheesecake but if you are looking for something lighter that will still give you your mango fix then the Mango Yogurt Parfait is perfect. If you want more, then, pick their sinfully delicious delicate Mango Crepes with mascarpone cheese, fresh mango pieces and whipped cream.
