Best Licuados: La Fruta Feliz

There are many good things to be had at La Fruta Feliz: the obligatory breakfast tacos, fiery menudo, and some of the best barbacoa in town. But whatever you order, washing it down with a licuado is non-negotiable. Creamy and thick enough to eat with a spoon, they're lushly sweet – the perfect treat to get you through yet another long, hot Austin day. The menu is extensive, but a good place to start is one with everything – papaya, mango, banana, and strawberry – all blended together into a gloriously refreshing mess, guaranteed to give you the most enjoyable sugar rush you've had in years.
