Bulgogi Banh Mi and Juices at Fruit Farm in Little Tokyo

An unassuming cafe called Fruit Farm had popped up inside of Little Tokyo's Galleria mall, serving fresh juices, smoothies, sandwiches, and salads. What to know is that one of the owners is Korean so you can get fun sandwich mash ups like this bulgogi banh mi ($6.75 gets you the two pieces shown below and you can get half filled with something else!)

What I actually like even better was the spicy pork banh mi that I got in my other half of the sandwich.
The bulgogi tends on the sweeter side and I think the light spiciness of the pork works better with the banh mi accompaniments, but both were good and interesting.

The juices here are relatively cheaper than other places. The Immune Booster has kale, celery, beet, carrot, orange, and apple juice for $5. Their smoothies also range from $4.25 to $6

For those wanting a turkey sandwich, they have that, too, with olive tapenade and salad greens ($5.99)

Their salads are pretty basic compared to to sandwiches. The Asian chicken salad ($4.99) is topped with wonton strips and tangerines.

Cookies (gluten free) and chocolates are sourced from other vendors, and during the holidays you can buy a little gift bags of them as presents.

Even though they had just recently opened (when I visited), they're already drawing loyal locals and office workers in the area because of their cheap and delicious sandwiches (they already know what these locals' standard orders are). Their catering menu also promises to be an office favorite with the cheap prices!

This looks great! I love that you're covering places in Little Tokyo as I work right over the bridge from there. Thanks for keeping us educated. :-)
