Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pura Vida Juice Bar
Review: Pura Vida offers a large variety of liquid concoctions, priced $10.50-$17 Argentinian pesos ($2.75-$4.50 USD). The liquid menu includes fruit, milk, wheatgrass and power smoothies, as well as freshly pressed fruit and vegetable juices. The only downside being the smoothies are served in Styrofoam cups. Pura Vida has several vegan options on their salad and sandwich menu, reasonably priced $17-$24 pesos ($4.50-$6.50 USD). We went for the Mediterraneo. Packed with hummus, quinoa tabouli, organic mixed greens, avocado, and carrots, this was definitely the right choice. All of the ingredients blended together to make an very delicious Mediterranean inspired wrap. The fresh organic greens were a real treat considering most of the greens we've come across in BA look awfully sad as they rot in the supermarkets. Pura Vida won our hearts with their vegan berry muffin. We liked our smoothies and sandwich, but we loved our muffin. It had just the right amount of sweetness, a perfect muffin top and moist insides. The muffin was only $6 pesos ($1.60 USD). Food and drinks are prepared extremely fast. The Recoleta location is very small so you'll probably want to get takeout.
