The rising mercury can be an absolute buzz kill. But thank God for small mercies, which come in the form of food that we absolutely love and adore.

If you love all the classic foods {mangoes, sundaes, cold soups, lemonade, fresh salads and cold cuts} that we associate with the summer, you’re in for a complete treat; Foodhall is hosting Taste of Summer Festival, where you get to taste a number of special ingredients and dishes. We’ve picked our absolute favourites.

Rose Petal Iced Tea

Tea. Or rather, chai—we love it, can’t live without it. But with these rising temperatures, even the biggest tea loyalist would like to switch to iced tea. Perfect to sip throughout the day or with meals, this rose petal iced tea will  keep you energised and hydrated, through even the hottest of days.

Price: INR 175

Glass Noodle Salad

What we love about salads is that you don’t need to be a food artisan or trained chef to put together a delicious — and more importantly, easy to make — salad. Also, salads are no longer our archetypal nemeses, so start the summer with some amazing glass noodle salads that are not just healthy, but tasty as well.

Price: INR 1,000

Chilled Mango And Lime Ricotta Cream

Its not called ‘the king of fruits’ for nothing; besides tantalising your taste buds, its the perfect dessert that should be on the menu when you’re planning an intimate dinner with your close friends during the summer months. Add some extra mango slices on top to make your dish even more drool worthy.

Price: INR 175

Waffle Cones

Amazing frozen desserts—what better than waffle cones? A real treat to the eyes and taste buds, these cones of overflowing sugary goodness are every dessert lover’s dream. Be sure to include them in your menu, because finishing the meal on a high note is really one of life’s best pleasures.

Breakfast In A Bottle

Yes we know that your daily hectic grind doesn’t leave you with time to have the breakfast that your mother would approve of. Hence: Breakfast in a bottle! With lots of options, like almond milk, flax seed, bananas, oat berries and greek yoghurt, you can literally have a different one for each day of the week. That is one amazing deal.

Price: INR 275

Marinated Feta And Olives In Fresh Herbs

We are damn sure about the fact that it does not take a Greek to appreciate some good feta. Its also perfect for that lazy afternoon when all you have to do is lay out the marinated feta and olives on a wooden platter with some crackers, or simply scoop some over some salad for a easy, healthy and light lunch. Perfect.

Price: INR 275
