As the stories go, many many years back the Nawabs of Murshidabad used to hold competitions as to who could perfect a better breed now cult Himsagar (called Khirsapati in murshidabad) , Langda etc there were countless other breeds developed which varied in size, shape, colour, texture, smell and so on. There was even one mango which was eaten to cleanse your palate between two different varieties! So no wonder that with time mango has established itself as the Nawab of all fruits. And the fact that it is seasonal adds more to its allure.
Flurys has come up with a Special Mango Mania menu available only for two weeks for the mango lovers of the city and you can expect some delicious sweet tooth indulgence.
Worth trying from the Mango Mania menu are Mango and Mascarpone Custard Tart. I loved the biscuit of the tart and the fact that the use of the fresh mango slices is just right and not over sweetened.
Then there’s a Fresh Caramel Mango Yogurt Mousse that’s really sweet and tasty. You would love it if you are fond of sweet desserts.
Also very good is the Bread Mango Pudding with fresh fruits and a really homely feel to it.
But the star dish was definitely the Mango Tea Cake. Really beautiful fresh tea cake with just a hint of mango layering on the top. Really really good.
But we felt the Mango Whoopie Pie and the Mango Log were a bit too sweet.
There are a few options on the beverage section as well and among the cakes, the Mango Cheesecake does look like a very interesting proposition. Let us know if you have it.
The Mango Mania menu will be available across all 17 outlets of Flurys around Kolkata till 4th of June.
Note: Team Hungry Hallows were were invited by the management for a tasting of the Mango Mania menu.
