Spinach: the source of Popeye's awesome strength. Pineapple: sweet and juicy. Apple: an object of love and beauty. Lemon: sour but mouthwatering. Despite being packed with apparently conflicting ingredients, this juice still manages to be the most popular item on the menu at I Mean Green. The unique exterior and interior designs perfectly fit this small alley in the Gyeongridan area, while the large salad along whit the taste and price of the juice will make you fall in love with this place in no time.
Based on the concept of a botanical garden in the heart of the city, this joint elected to make its signature juice eponymous. For this cold-pressed juice, they use apple for anti-aging and bowel movement promotion, beet to cleanse the liver and boost the immune system and ginger for improved blood circulation. The apples here are sweet enough to take the edge off the ginger. The thick juice of the beet, the sweetness of the apple and the fragrance of the ginger strike a fantastic harmony.
This elixir is made with wheatgrass, one of the most popular ingredients in cold-pressed juice and a great cleanser of the blood, liver and bowels. You may not like the green color of the juice or the bitter taste of the wheatgrass, but this is one of Mercy Juice's bestsellers, so you’ve gotta try it. The blend of green grapes, kiwi and apple provide sweet and sour notes, leaving a tiny bit of lingering astringency at the end. This is a healthy and tasty way to replenish your body with water and vitamins. It is the perfect vegetable juice for beginners.
There are 15 different juices on Tribar’s menu. When I asked for something good to drink in the heat, they made me Number 16 (Fever Peach), a cold-pressed juice with peach and pineapple. This is a summer-only item, so hurry up and head to Tribar if you want a taste. Peaches and pineapples are in season in July and August and contain plenty of water and sugar. Though it could make your juice taste a bit bland after a while, you can ask them to add ice if you're going to drink it right away.
This juice is made with seven ingredients: wheatgrass, asparagus, broccoli, lemon, apple, pear and cucumber. Honestly, I wasn’t really hyped about the idea of asparagus and broccoli as juice. But you know what? It was good; not just good enough to exceed my expectations, but genuinely good. The strong sweetness of pear and zesty lemon take the bitter bite off this vegetable-based juice. This place was the first in Korea to introduce the idea of cleansing juice under the title of a “detox juice bar.” The Miranda Kerr Detox Juice, made with nine ingredients, including spirulina, acai berries and goji berries, is another item strongly recommended by regulars.
