Today feels like a good coconut day.  Has anyone gotten a coconut from this place yet?  They’re only $2.50 each, and the place is run by a local immigrant whose dream is to sell coconuts.  A friendly gentleman even stands in front with a machete ready to help you liberate the sweet coconut water, which also happens to be the best hangover cure in the world, battle-tested by professional Guyanese lay-abouts (you can keep your kombucha, thank you very much).

It’s one of those places that looks like a front for something unsavory, but only because they are still working on getting all their permits.  And just ask Mission Minis and Anthony’s Cookies about what happens when you don’t get your permits.  Nope, nothing here except good, wholesome young coconuts.  Even Madonna is cuckoo for coconuts.

    If you grew up in the tropics, you also know that agua de coco is considered good for the kidneys. When I was 21, I came down with a kidney infection; the doctor put me on a diet of coconut water in lieu of regular drinking water – it was the miracle cure.

    This place is great. The cocos are indeed quite good ESP compared to what you get at the market.

    I LOVE this guy! I bought I delicious coconut from him a few months ago and he had not opened the store–he was just running a stand outside of it. Does he have any big plans for the store? It really is quite large to just sell coconuts.
    In other news, I hear that coconut water is also a natural, light laxative! hm!
