New Year Resolution - Holiday Recovery Diet Series Part III of III: Healthy Options in Mexico City - Frutos Prohibidos!

The Place: Frutos Prohibidos: The Upscale Health Food Option!

The Experience:
 Frutos Prohibidos is an established clean cut chain of health food restaurants which almost seems out of place in Mexico City and more appropriate for London or New York, attracting a posh crowd that tend to bring along their pure breed dogs for breakfast and lunch.

All of the locations seem to be made out of the same cookie-cutter mold with the same white and wood floor store layout, digital system that assigns you a number when you pay and order your food at the register … but it must be said the prices are decent and most of the sandwiches and smoothies are tasty with decent portions.

I enjoyed the Monroe smoothie with cacao and the turkey sandwich was quite nice … the salads however sometimes leave something to be desired. An OK option for a quick healthy bite if you are around one of their locations.

The Location Gringo G went to: Avenida Amsterdam 244B, corner with Calle Michoacán (on the eastern side of the Amsterdam Loop), Colonia Hipódromo Condesa, DF.

Neat Fruit and Veggie Display

The Anatomy of Sin - A Little Overdone for my Taste

Get a Number!

The Specials: The sandwiches and smoothies are all pretty decent!

Savage Turkey Wrap ... Very Nice!

Nice Little Fruit Cup

Coco Chanel - Delicous Cocoa Concoction

Tips: The portions are not huge so if you are really hungry maybe you should look for another option.
