Dishes with a Twist
The best way to eat mangoes is to peel it with your bare hands and take a bite of the delicious fruit, unmindful of its juice trickling down your mouth. Of course, the more "sosy" ones would prefer to eat using a knife and fork, careful not to have their hands wet with the juice. Nevertheless, the mangoes still taste sweet regardless of how you eat it.
