Fresh, col-pressed juices for the win.
When we say that juice stands are starting to get sidelined there is one glaring exception – Tamara. Except for Shabbat, when it’s closed, this juice stand is always dotted with patrons looking to get a just-picked-from-the-tree tasting juice or smoothie blend. Ask them to add ice to your blend for a sorbet-like effect. Acai bowl and fruit-based popsicles are also offered (try the coconut!). Given the stand’s popularity they recently expanded with a brick-and-mortar location called Jusa where you’ll find bottled versions of many of their bestselling options. Juice cleanses are also offered for those looking to take their juicing habit to the next level. As far as wellness trends go Israel may not have progressed to the point where you’ll find Sex and Beauty Dust-infused juices (and maybe that’s a good thing?) but it’s near impossible to compete with their fresh produce. All of the shop’s bottled juices are cold pressed to maintain their high nutritional value (compared to the commonly found pasteurized juices with preservatives and sugar additives) and they offer a variety of healthy snacks including chia pudding, healthy desserts including fresh fruit and Paletas. And we’ve saved the best for last: unlike Tamara where you’re almost always faced with a snaking line, there’s rarely much of a wait at Jusa.
