When Cesare and Nicolò tell about their new born project it looks just so clear you can literally see it. Tamarindo Juicery is the best restaurant for take away healthy food in Florence, where you can sit but everything is ready to go.
Behind a big glass wall, you can see the cold-pressed-juices-machine at work all day every day. The open view kitchen shows the transparency and simplicity of their production process. From fresh fruits and vegetables to juice!
The vision of the two young entrepreneurs behind Tamarindo Juicery is to deliver first quality, nutritionally rich food in a easy ad accessible way to everyone. Everything is served in compostable take away packaging with the objective of making good and healthy food as fast and easy to eat as a sandwich.
Have you ever felt in the situation of choosing a sandwich over healthy food because healthy was too slow? If you relate Tamarindo Juicery is the solution to eat healthier.
Tamarindo Juicery is in Via De’ Neri 46r, in the city center of Florence, right behind the Uffizi Gallery.
In the last few years, with the opening of many small shops, Via dei Neri has become a vibrant part of the city, it is very close to the most famous parts of Florence. It is also a place where you will meet lots of locals.
Cesare and Nicolò couldn’t find a better location where to rock all these greens!
Are you one of those people who pay a good attention to what they eat?
Then this is something for you:
Where does their fruit and vegetables come from? They produce and sell their own!
Nicolò’s family has been in the Fruits and Vegetables business for the past 3 generations, Nicolò’s grandfather started selling it in the Market of Florence over 70 years ago. One of the many family owned companies that work in the business is Giotto Fanti Fresh that selects and sends to Tamarindo Juicery fresh fruits and vegetables every day.
When they say ‘Made Here Daily’ they mean it!
They make everything home made even most of the ingredients they use, like Almond milk, PEANUT BUTTER, Cookies, HUMMUS, Tahini, ALMOND FLOUR, Banana Bread.
All of Tamarindo’s recipes are home made, from scratch… something our Mediterrean grandmas would certainly be proud of!
Find plenty of Vegan and Vegetarian options too.
Also: why cold pressed juices?
Pressing helps largely to reduce the amount of oxygen in the juices during the production process. For this reason cold pressing is the best way to produce bottled juice. This allows to make it ready-to-go while maintaining all the amazing properties of fresh and raw Juice .
Did you know that by drinking juice you increases the rate of absorption of all the nutrients, drinking 500ml of juice is equivalent to drinking about 1Kg of fresh fruits and veggies !
Are you one of those peoples who think. “there is no planet-B! do not create pollution, it’s important!”
Then you are just like me, and you’ll be as pleased as I am when yo noticethat:
At Tamarindo Juicery they make a real effort to reduce their impact on the planet while trying to run a sustainable business. Most of their takeaway packaging is 100% Biodegradable and everything else is 100% recyclable. One thing I particularly liked was their use of compostable straws…
