Best Juice Bar Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2014 - Myapapaya Juicery + Kitchen
For decades, juicing was associated with crunchy-granola-macro-dieting hippie types while the mainstream was stuck on the whole Tropicana O.J. bandwagon. Over the past ten years, though, cold-pressed juicing has been gaining steam across the country. The method crushes and presses fruit and vegetables for a higher yield of liquid and maximum enzyme and nutrient extraction. Proponents claim that ingesting the brightly colored juices cleans, detoxifies, and purifies the body. While mail-order cleanses and cold-pressed juices have been on the market for quite some time, Myapapaya Juicery + Kitchen brought the concept to Fort Lauderdale a year and a half ago, and the trend has since blown up, with numerous cold-pressed juicers having sprouted up. They're all good, and they're all good for you, but the originators certainly deserve some more cred. Chef Adam Kanner, who formerly worked as a private chef, has created combos that are as flavorful as they are nutrient-dense. Try the Go Go Green ($10): It combines kale, spinach, romaine, celery, parsley, cucumber, lemon, ginger, and apple for a mixture that is rich in beneficial chlorophyll and phytonutrients. If you're looking to go big, the spot also offers a number of cleansing options starting at $65 per day.
