Mango Mango Mango! Summer is Here!

You know summer is here when it's finally time to eat mangoes! It might be surprising to read, but mangoes are grown in Japan too! Specifically in Miyazaki prefecture or Okinawa. A lot of restos are jumping on the mango bandwagon and are offering limited-time products!

Feel free to follow favy!

Japanese Mangoes

Miyazaki mangoes are considered a luxury item as they are quite pricey, but oh so delicious! They are known for their juiciness and are packed with vitamin A & C. Due to its subtropical climate, to its high precipitation levels and its long daylight hours, it is possible to grow tropical fruits. In fact, this region is known for its agriculture. They are nicknamed "the egg of the sun!"
Okinawan mangoes are in season between mid-June and mid-August! They grow under the hot Okinawan sun and are fresh and juicy!

Shaved ice (かき氷)

This mango shaved ice at Taiwan Cafe Zen is super fluffy and delicious. It's also incredibly refreshing and perfect for the summer! This is a definite Japanese must-try (although it is a Taiwanese cafe).

Frozen fruit bar

For delicious and fresh fruit bars, you should stop by Paletas to try one of their mango fruit bars. They also offer a variety of different flavors as well. Are you game enough to try tomato & basil, or are you more vanilla (literally)?

Mango parfait

Another great way to enjoy sweet summer mangoes is in a deliciously fruity parfait. Takano Fruits Parlor is famous for their fresh Japanese fruits, so if there's ever a place to try a mango parfait, it's here! It isn't on the cheap side, but their fruit are absolutely perfect and delicious!

Mango tart

This mango tart is not only stunning, but it's so delicious! This tart is delicately prepared and is more a piece of art, than a simple food item. It is priced accordingly, but it is incredible! This tart uses deliciously juicy Okinawa mangoes, will you give it a try?

Cut fruit

And well sometimes, simple is best. Frutas offers pieces of freshly cut tasty fruits, they also serve delicious mango juices, mango parfaits, etc. Yum!
