An oasis of tropical taste in the great urban desert. Juice lovers can let their imaginations off the leash at this tiny snack bar: with an assortment of fresh fruit this diverse, the possibilities are endless.
Banana Spilt barely extends beyond the counter, but it mixes more than 20 fruits at a time. A menu offers many helpful hints for the slightly less inspired. The most famous of these is “vitamina mista” (“mixed vitamin”), a blend of banana, guava, papaya, avocado, watermelon, strawberry, apple and orange—somehow, the flavors of each fruit still manage to stand out.
And, in case all this juice does not quite satisfy those hunger pangs, Banana Spilt also sells healthy, tasty sandwiches. Located near Conjunto Nacional, a home to the bookshop Livraria Cultura and the cinema Cine Bombril, it’s a great place to meet friends before moving on to other activities.
