An Asian-influenced sweet shop will be launching their newest outpost in Jersey City as Mango Mango will be opening their latest shop in the heart of Downtown.
The business, which launched their first location in New York City back in 2013, is coming to 172 2nd Street on the ground floor of the DVORA property. Mango Mango prides themselves on embracing a natural, sustainable approach to all aspects of their business, from using locally grown ingredients to incorporating reclaimed wood in the construction process.
Mango Mango opened in neighboring Hoboken back in 2019, but that outpost now operates independently as a business called Icy Melon. So the upcoming Jersey City location will be the only Mango Mango in Hudson County.
The mango-themed dessert shop sells treats made in a traditional Hong Kong-style, including fresh fruit bowls, cakes, crepes, waffles, and ice creams. Highlights from the menu include “soups” like a papaya snow fungus with almond or a black sesame paste soup with mochi.
Their gluten-based options include a green tea mille crepe or a waffle ice cream sandwich. Speaking of ice cream, Mango Mango features unique flavors like green tea, red bean, and mango. A selection of Asian-influenced juices, hot teas, and slushies rounds out the restaurant.
An opening date for Mango Mango Jersey City has not been announced just yet, but temporary signage is already up at their future storefront.
