Mango has been featuring on the menus of several Mumbai’s restaurants. While there are a few doing panna cottas, cheesecakes, tarts and cupcakes, we picked up the ones that’re using mangoes in the most creative ways; a special mention to those going a step forward and adding fresh, ripe mangoes to savoury dishes.

Dessert

Mango Frangipani Tart @ Star Anise, Bandra West

It’s not a plain tart and that’s the reason it sits on the list of must-try mango dishes in Mumbai. It has fresh alphonso mangoes on a short crust pastry with almond cream and vanilla custard. Finished with white chocolate curls, the tart looks like a lovely flower. Dig in and you’d want to go for seconds.

Price: Rs 150

The Le Cordon Bleu graduate, Chef Toshin Shetty, launched his patisserie last year and took the city by storm with his progressive desserts. Beyond the Ozone is another addition to his superbly creative menu. The velvety dessert has slow-reduced mango and mascarpone cheese filled with mango squares and vanilla dacquoise – vanilla flavoured meringue.

Price: Rs 240 per piece; Rs 1,500 for 700 gms cake

Chatpata Aam Centre @ English Vinglish, Juhu

Chef Ranveer Brar’s latest venture is about desi mithai going global. While there’s Aamrakhand Cheesecake and the likes on the menu, our interest was piqued by Chatpata Aam Centre, which has Indian-spiced caramelised mango pulp encased in 34 per cent milk chocolate. So as you bite into the chocolate, you’ll be greeted by a gush of tangy spicy kairi.

Price: Rs 330 for 6 pieces

Chef Thomas Zacharias’ mango creation is a somewhat take on the famous payasam. Served in a cutting chai glass, the trifle has fresh Alphonso mangoes, sabudana (tapioca pearls) pudding topped with coconut meringue and finished with aam papad.

Price: Rs 250

Mango Panna Cotta @ The Fatty Bao, Bandra West

When we started collating this list, we thought of staying away from the cheesecakes and panna cottas. But, this dessert from The Fatty Bao is not your regular panna cotta. Served with tapioca pearls, passion fruit, raspberry meringue and mango chilli cilantro salsa, it’s a pop of colours and flavours.

Price: Rs 265
