The Snack: Fruit stand on the corner of Pico and Canfield



Faster than you can say "fruit cup."

The sous chef doesn’t speak much, but sure knows how to slice and dice.

You get a week’s worth of Vitamin A for only four bucks. Mango, orange, watermelon, jicama, cucumber, cantaloupe, and pineapple fill up a bag that you can shower with lemon juice, chili powder, and/or salt. For five bucks you get even more.

The stand is operated every weekday and only serves raw fruit, so plenty customers stop by in yarmulkes looking for a healthy burst of sugar. May not work with the South Beach Diet, but what do I know.

Oh yeah, and the fruit is delicious. Crunchy; juicy still.
