Named after a popular condiment in India, Mango Pickle is a taste of contemporary India in Chicago. With a neon pink sign and sparkling lights on the outside, it is a splash of color to the Edgewater neighborhood. As you step inside to a carefully curated space with fixtures imported from India, you can’t help but give a smile to the warm and friendly staff that will inevitably greet you like you’re stepping into their home.
The food is just as expressive as the space, with touches of modern and classic takes on Indian fare. The menu changes with seasonal ingredients and showcases the amazing combinations of flavors, textures and spices that the Indian cuisine can offer.
They have delightfully fresh cocktails to pair with your meal as well, like their popular desi margarita mixed with small-batch tequila, feni, mango shrub, lime, chai spices, and kashmiri chilis. This combination of sweet and spicy is amazing on its own but definitely pairs nicely with some fried treats like the paneer pops or samosas. Everything is definitely fit for sharing and I highly encourage it so you can explore more items on the menu.
