Most of us have grown up enjoying the ‘King of fruits’ plain, as milkshakes or in traditional Indian dishes made by our grandmothers. 

However, not all may have that luxury or the time anymore to make something special out of the fruit. It’s time to make new memories and try the fruit in different forms at your favourite restaurants in the city. As the summer is at its peak, city restaurants have taken the liberty to innovate with their menu by using the fruit to create delicious dishes that are not only limited to desserts but also savoury specials. 

Here are some restaurants that you could visit to feast on mangoes this summer: 

A touch of Japanese
If you are open to exploring new flavours, head to Zenmai for a delicious Japanese affair this summer. The city-based restaurant is not only serving innovative dishes that use the fruit, but also cocktails and desserts that will tantalise your taste buds. Experiment with the mango sushi called Mango Uramaki, which has cream cheese, avocado, fresh mango, chopped bell peppers. Sip on a fruity whiskey-based Mango Sour or a Mango and Gin Spritzer. While the first has muddled mango chunks, the latter has a pureed form of the fruit. Last but not the least, don’t forget to get spoonfuls of Mango Cheesecake to make the most of the season.
