Sugar Rush: Num Pang's Tropical Fruit Salad

Most pre-packed fruit salads are dull and overpriced, but not Num Pang's Tropical Fruit Salad ($4.50)—which includes everything from meaty pieces of young coconut meat to mango, papaya, and pineapple chunks, not to mention lychees. The fruits are consistently fresh and well-proportioned; no skimping on one or another. They're all tossed in a sweet and light bath of lemongrass and finely chopped mint. Pair this with their housemade Hot Ginger Apple Cider ($1.75), a more spicy than sweet concoction, and you'll have the healthiest dessert we've Sugar Rush'ed in a long time.
