Juice D Fruitz @ Setiawalk, 1 2 Juice @ Sungai Besi & Project Space @ Subang

For evidence that juices are spilling over into every corner of the Klang Valley's cafes, here's our vitamin-packed voyage to three new outlets that'll recommend more than merely an apple a day, kicking off with Juice D Fruitz at Puchong's Setiawalk.

Juice D Fruitz features no fewer than 32 cold-pressed combos, with components that range from beetroot to broccoli to bananas & blueberries, grapefruit to guava to ginger & garlic (!), wheatgrass to watermelon, bottled into self-explanatory blends with names like 'Wrinkle Less,' 'Protect My Baby' & 'Kidney Cleanse.'

Our current crop of local juice purveyors seems to have mostly mastered the formula for making beverages with balanced flavours & pleasing textures. RM11.80 for Juice D Fruitz's 'Veggie Berry,' a complex concoction of red peppers, green apples, blackberries, blueberries, beetroot & garlic.

Next up, moving on to 1 2 Juice (terrific name!) in Sungai Besi's Lakefields for freshest fruit juices imaginable.

Helpful instructions convey 1 2 Juice's 'choose five fruits, we blend them together for RM12' customisation concept.

South African oranges to Turkish lemons, combining forces for an old-fashioned fruit juice to quench our thirst.

Final stop: Project Space, a students' hangout perched on the first floor of a Subang SS15 shop-house. It's more a coffee bar than a juice specialist, but it does showcase the creations of local brand This Juice Co.

Partner This Juice Co's chilled 'Cucumber Aid' (RM15, comprising organic cucumber, mint leaves & pineapple) - meant to boost immunity & help manage weight - with Project Space's flat white & Ling's Kitchen lemon meringue tart.

  3. I cough badly when drinking fruit juices - too "cold" for my system, I guess. Otherwise, it's very healthy, wouldn't mind going for those regularly.

  4. Juice heaven! Cold-pressed is always much tastier and better for you too. That's the first time I've seen garlic in a juice...bold!

    1. YouHadYourLunch: yeah, i love garlic, and i couldn't resist ordering it in a juice. it was very mild-tasting though, which i guess is the way it should be for garlic-laced juices :)
