Not every mall fast food option has to be unhealthy or bland. Agua Cabana, the first California franchise from a fruit-focused Mexico City concept, recently debuted a vivid outpost on the second floor of Northridge Fashion Center.
A white counter hosts nine tubs of agua fresca, all made with fresh fruit: watermelon, mango, strawberry, pineapple, cucumber lime, strawberry lemonade, cantaloupe and strawberry milk. The base model is a whopping 32 ounces, and they’ll gladly sell you higher volume.
Mango Twister is a standout item featuring mango agua fresca with fresh mango, chamoy sauce and Tajin spice, presented as a sweet-tart-spicy spiral. They also have mixed fruits available "picante" style with chamoy, tajin and lime; or "bionico" style with raisins, granola, coconut and condensed milk cream. Cabana chillers feature fruit sorbet with mango, chamoy, tajin and lime. The fruity choice is yours.
