Mango Lassi

Any recommendations for a good Mango Lassi? I want more of this...

I went to the Renaissance (swap-meet & cleavage) Pleasure Faire today and what stands out in my mind the most (well, almost the most) was the Mango Lassi I had along with my Chicken Curry Plate. This was my first Mango Lassi and I want more. Chunks of mango floating in a semi-thick delicious drink. It was like part drink, part mango desert and altogether satisfying. So I came home and searched Chowhound and found a place that I will try at lunchtime tomorrow – India Sweets & Spices (8 locations). It is so nice to have something so good to look forward to – Right?

  1. Where do you live? Many Indian restaurants have Mango Lassi on their menus. It is not something that you have to go out of your way to find.

      SGV, but hey, If a really good meal is to be had along with a really good mango lassi, then anything goes. My Thanks, JeetJet?

    2. Just a head's up - mango lassi is normally made with mango puree, not pieces of mango. Don't want you to be disappointed!

        For a quick fix blend some mango puree or chunks with kefir yogurt and sugar syrup.

      2. My favorite is the one from Bharat's Bazzar/Samosa House. It's not too thick, not too sweet and not too funky. It's perfectly balanced... :D

            Mmmmmm, yes, the mango lassi at Samosa House is tops.

          2. I love All India Cafe in Pasadena. They have great Mango Lassis and you must try the Eggplant Salad. .. so yummy I order 2 of them.


            1. If you're at an I.S.& S. with a grocery-store component (I'm not sure that all of them have it, but I think they do) you'll also find cans of pre-prepped mango puree from which you can blend up your own at home any time! This can pose a serious mango addiction issue for some....
