The very good berry is here again!
The Strawberry season is here! We’ve seen it in ice creams, shakes, fruits markets and sometimes even on traffic signals. What we don’t do is enjoy this fruit to its fullest. So, we thought why not make the most of it while this luscious red berry is here? Here’s our list of strawberry dishes you must try in Mumbai.
Strawberry Balsamic Ice cream@The Sassy Spoon, Bandra

Why have strawberry ice creams, when you get your fix from one that hosts a myriad of flavours in it? A twist on the usual Strawberry Balsamic Salad, this ice cream is a lovely concoction. What’s more? You can taste an underlying hint of watermelon too!
Rich Chocolate Strawberry@Deliciae, Khar

Strawberries and chocolates are good on their own, but imagine what would happen if they were put together in a sinful mélange. A dense dark, intense and gooey chocolate cake with real juicy strawberries, need we say more?
Strawberrylicious Hot Chocolate@Grandmama’s Café, Lower Parel
Strawberrylicious Hot Chocolate at Grandmama's Cafe
Now, hot chocolate may be an all year round favourite. This comforting warm potion sure sets you in motion when you feel low or crave comfort. It gets even better with chunks of juicy slightly sweet strawberries.
Winter Strawberry & Couscous Mix@Ministry of Salads, Breach Candy
Winter Strawberry & Couscous Mix at Ministry of Salads
We thought why not find something healthy with strawberries and we stumbled on the Winter Strawberry & Couscous Salad. This salad has strawberries with couscous and baby spinach, crisp red onions, crunchy almonds and flax seeds. The Balsamic dressing single handedly balances the flavours.
Strawberry Tart@Theobroma, Colaba

What’s a strawberry season without a good old strawberry tart? Besides, you know if you’re talking desserts and Theobroma, you’ll surely satiate your sweet tooth. A brittle pastry casing topped with strawberries make for the best nostalgia inducing strawberry dessert!
Strawberry Waffles@Coffee by Di Bella, Peddar Road

We all know that waffles at Di Bella have been a favourite, but this season they’re pretty with slices of strawberry on top! Freshly made warm waffles come drizzled with Nutella and topped with luscious strawberry slices, they are as indulgent as they are comforting.
Peperrazi Pink@Sucres De Terres, Worli
Peperrazi Pink at Sucres De Terres
Fan of artisanal ice creams? Get your hands on Peperazzi Pink from Sucres De Terres. Flavours of luscious strawberries and zesty black pepper marry in an ice cream that’s an indulgence in itself.
Strawberry Goat Cheese Focaccia@Lobby Lounge, Grand Hyatt, Santacruz
We know that strawberries make for good dessert and savouries too. Head to the Lobby Lounge at the Grand Hyatt and try some delicious Strawberry Goat Cheese Focaccia. Warm soft bread with tart strawberries and creamy goat cheese make for the perfect snack to pair with your tea.
