A New Açaí and Juice Shop Is Opening in Philadelphia This Summer

In case we weren’t already convinced açaí is trending, Philly is getting yet another spot for the fruity, frozen bowls. Not long after SoBol’s opening in Rittenhouse, we’re getting ready to welcome Break Juicery, opening this summer at The Bourse Marketplace.

According to our friends over at FooBooz, there are a total of 27 vendors scheduled to open at The Bourse Marketplace so far. We’re pretty pumped about all the new lunch spots coming to town — granted, the fact that they’ll be right by our offices may have something to do with it — but we’re also excited because there are some healthy and delicious eateries included in the line up.

Newly announced, Break Juicery will open this summer with smoothies, juices, wheatgrass shots, and – you guessed it — açaí bowls. The shop relies on locally-sourced and organic produce to craft their blended drinks and bowls. They’re not, however, about the whole “detox” and “cleanse” hype that often goes hand-in-hand with the juicing lifestyle. Rather, they’re focused on incorporating more science-backed info on healthy eating and nutrition into their products.

But Break Juicery isn’t the only new place for some plant-filled foods. TaKorean, a DC-based Korean taco joint, is bringing their bowls and tacos to the marketplace as well. The best part? It’s super vegan-friendly, and the cauliflower tacos (topped with a spiced kale slaw) are so good even non-vegans will crave them.

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a poke spot joining the Bourse tenants. At Abunai Poke — another DC transplant — there’s some yummy pescatarian-friendly options (lookin’ at you, shrimp bowl), plus tofu bowls for the plants-only crowd.

With all this opening this summer — plus the new HipCityVeg on the Delaware River Waterfront — the east side of town is turning into quite the destination for lovers of healthy, colorful food.
