Animo Juice: Philly Review

If you're working in Center City and looking for some good lunch grub, Animo will certainly fit the bill.

Juices, salads, and burritos are on offer here and there's enough seating in this clean and quaint space. 

The burritos are good, but I say the best bet to get an even heftier fill is to go down the path of a burrito bowl.

Pork Fajita Burrito Bowl ($9.50)
Pork, rice, beans, roasted veggies, guacamole, cheese

Animo was out of steak, so I went with the pork fajita. The pork had good flavor and was well seasoned. Hearty beans had bite and were not mushy at all, with the fresh grilled peppers and caramelized onions adding richness to each bite. The creamy guacamole had a nice acidity from the lime. They must have forgot to add cheese on mine unfortunately. Blue corn chips were a nice accompaniment.

Chicken Haight & Ashbury Bowl ($10)
Chicken, rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheese 

The GF went with the chicken bowl, which had a nice melange of moist protein and a similar mix of beans and rice. In place of roasted veggies, her order had sour cream and she actually did receive cheese. A nice creamy mix for each bite.

So if you're looking for good eats during your workday in Center City, Animo is a good bet.
