Try These Seasonal Desserts If Strawberries Are Bae

Much like mangoes (but unfairly under-hyped), strawberries get a lot of bhao in the 3-4 months that they're available. While they're healthy, antioxidant-rich, and all, we gotta be honest. We LOVE our strawberry waale desserts. Paired with chocolate, ice-cream, malai kulfi and even cheesecake, this versatile AF fruit is a smash hit no matter what.
Here's a list of unmissable strawberry-centric desserts in the city!

K Rustom, Churchgate

Trust K Rustom’s to make the best of seasonal fruits! We’ve all (I presume…) grown up eating their classic biscuit wala ice-creams, while swinging our feet, munching away while facing the Arabian Sea. Their flavours have been wowing the city consistently for decades. Try two things while you’re here - the Strawberry Biscuit Ice Cream, the Strawberries And Cream.

Price: INR 80 for the Biscuit Ice Cream and INR 90 for the Strawberries And Cream.

99 Pancakes, Multiple Outlets

While we do love the Choco Bannoffee Holland pancakes and the Holla Nutella pancakes from here all year round, berry season is the time to get the Very Very Strawberry Pancake. It’s in the French pancake style (not the roundels that are all over Instagram), but we promise you, it’s unmissable.

Price: INR 220

Natural’s, Multiple Outlets

Yes, we know this is an obvious one. But we think it’s best to remind you anyway. ‘Tis the season to get your seasonal fill of Fresh Strawberry Pieces with their Malai ice-cream. Make the best of it before mango season arrives!
Needless to say, their classic (fresh AF) Strawberry Ice-Cream’s worth trying, too.

Price: INR 130 for the Fresh Strawberry Pieces with Malai Ice Cream, and INR 60 for the Strawberry Ice Cream.

Bomberry, Tardeo

If you're a Mapro Garden-obsessed foodie with a sweet tooth, Bomberry is your ticket to Panchgani (or Mahabaleshwar), and all the mind-blowing seasonal food it's got. While the savoury stuff is cheese-laden goodness that'll have the Dieting Friend crying foul, the desserts, though equally sinful, are completely worth the trip.
Get the Bomberry Strawberry Cream and/or the ChocoBerry Nutella Cream, and you'll discover a whole new way to love strawberries.

Price: INR 245 for the Strawberry Cream and INR 281 for the ChocoBerry Nutella Cream.

Bastian, Bandra

Before we start talking about their seasonal desserts, we ought to tell you that you need to make sure you’ve got a reservation here long before you plan to go (no spontaneous date nights, basically). Always filled up with people you’ve seen in something, this swanky Bandra spot has a menu that’s ever-evolving, and therefore, always exciting!

The Strawberry Stuffed French Toast is an indulgent dessert which is high-key addictive. This one’s a classic French Toast with strawberry cheesecake, fresh strawberries, milk crumbs, all topped with strawberry syrup. Yes, it’s a lot.

Price: INR 700

The Brew Corner, Vasai

Freakshakes had a moment, which, however fleeting, was pretty fun. This is a (seasonal) shoutout to freakshakes, promoters of sugar rushes, impossible challenges that we've often taken on while being grossly underprepared. This adorable Vasai Cafe has a stellar Strawberry Blast freakshake which is a seasonal item on the menu.
If you've got a sweet tooth, and an infinite capacity to eat, you're gonna love this one.

Price: INR 250
