Juice / Beverages
It is in the nation’s Latin-heritage restaurants that juice attains a place of glory. In fact, throughout much of south Florida, the borderland Southwest, and southern California, some eateries are more about juice than food. In Miami, El Palacio de los Jugos serves great Cuban food, but it also fresh-squeezes oranges, mango, papaya, watermelon, and pineapple; and if you want coconut juice, an expert will deftly chop one open with a machete and insert a straw. In Tucson, a humble little joint called Juice N Fruit boasts 26 different “jugos naturals y medicinales.” In San Juan Capistrano, at a juice and quick-eats shop called El Campeon, when you order watermelon juice, you get juice from a watermelon, not watermelon-flavored water. Other freshly squeezed choices at El Campeon include tamarind, strawberry, orange, and mango. And if you don’t want straight juice, you can have the juices made into a milk shake.
