Salt Water Café, a place where the desserts compete with one another. It’s difficult to pick one dessert from their menu, and present it as the most delicious. We still did manage to pick one; the Hazelnut Mousse Flan steals the show with Hazelnut crisps at the base, and the crumbly crust.

There’s not one soul alive who hates Gulab Jamun! Know of any? They’re fooling you, they’re dead inside!
Anyway, so we all love Gulab Jamun. Now, The Bombay Canteen decided to gift us with a little something. They wanted to make it special, and so they added magic to this little dessert.
The Gulab Nut from TBC, is filled with Old Monk! Nope, no kidding! The dessert literally is spiked with Old Monk, making it one of the must-eat desserts in Mumbai!
17. Jalebi Caviar at Masala Library
Masala Library by Jiggs Kalra has been the talk of the town for its unique way of jazzing traditional dishes up. Jalebi Caviar is one such delicacy by Jiggs Kalra and his team. Instead of making the Jalebi in the traditional way, Jiggs Kalra and team added a chic turn to this dessert.
The Jalebi has been interestingly shrunk into tiny boondi-style balls, and presented in a pool of Rabri which is further garnished with crushed Pistachio. It goes without saying that this entire caboodle is extremely delectable.
