The Happy Orange is a juice bar facing into the parking lot behind Muy Macho, in South Park, at 14th and Clover.
"Pico de gallo" was a fruit cocktail of pinapple, mango, cucumber, watermelon, strawberry, freshly chopped, so fresh, while we listened in the lobby. We said "yes" to salt, chili, and lime and this was a very good decision.
And we had a licuado (smoothie) of strawberry, plantain, and "crema."
They list jugos, licuados, cockteles, tortas, y bebidas especiales (juices, blends/smoothies, fruit cocktail, sandwiches and special drinks). The place is a treat. The fruit is fresh and well-treated and the combinations are thoughtful and tasty. I tried to compliment the ten-or-twelve year old daughter who was working the front of the house, but succeeded only, I fear, of making her think I worked for the health department when I complimented her on her assiduous hand-washing. Very sweet.
