Ensalada Fresca

Why: The literal translation of ensalada fresca is "fresh salad," but what it means on the menu at Guanaco's Tacos Pupuseria is so much more. It means 16 ounces of light, sweet juice flavored with tiny cubes of apple, mango, and pineapple. It's served with a fat straw so you can crunch on the bits of fruit while you drink, and it's only $1.50. It's like bubble tea, but better—because unlike the gluey balls of tapioca, the fruit doesn't take on the texture of ABC gum. (You remember ABC gum, right?) (Guanaco's Tacos Pupuseria, 219 Broadway E, 328-6288, 11:30 am–9 pm; 4106 Brooklyn Ave NE, 547-2369, 11:30 am–8:30 pm.)
