Summer can be brutal but it has its perks and the biggest one is that it is mango season! The city is flush with all sorts of mango treats and every cafe and restaurant and only fitting we give you a glimpse of the variety on offer. Mango mania continues at EazyDiner with these fabulous restaurants in Mumbai!
Mango Malibu Tiramisu at The Sassy Spoon, Nariman Point, South Mumbai - While the food is always great at The Sassy Spoon, it is their desserts that really shine and this season they are all about mangoes. While they make a lovely Mango Cheesecake and Mango Passion Fruit Puree Yogurt and Chia Seed Pudding, it is their divine Mango Malibu Tiramisu that is the winner.
Mango Thali at Rajdhani - This Mango Thali that they put out every year is legendary. While you have all sorts of mango-themed dishes and thalis, no one does it as extravagantly as Rajdhani. The Mango Thali includes some real innovations like the Mango Pizza Dhokla, Aam Khasta Kachori, Aamras Boondi and even Kairi Thepalas. This is not even scratching the surface of this lavish thali but it is an experience well worth trying.
Mango Desserts at Farmer's Cafe - This cafe is known for their healthier options and all the vegan and gluten-free choices so they are expanding that and incorporating mango in their guilt-free desserts. From mango muffins, cakes and even in pancakes, it is all much healthier than usual minus excess sugar and still delicious.
Aamras Puri at Soam - If you are a mango fan then this is one dish you must treat yourself to. Aamras is usually served with deep fried comforting Puris but even eaten on its own, is pure bliss. You can find it at most joints serving thalis but our favourite remains the one served at Soam.
Mango Margarita at Jamjar Diner - This quirky cafe is celebrating mangoes all season long with their Mango Chili Jargaritas which are their own special mango flavoured margaritas and fresh mango and Chocolate Ganache French Toast which is a brilliant twist to the classic French toast.
Mango Bhel at The Culture House - These guys are really getting creative with their mango menu this year. From a royal Mango Rabdi Falooda which sounds decadent to Mango Bhel and even Coconut Mango Ladoos, it is a mango treat here and it is available all month long!
