Nestled on a bustling street in Montebello, CA, there lies a little gem of a restaurant called Fruit Revolution. Here their specialties include fresh fruit plates, (including parfaits, platters, and cocktails) and gourmet sandwiches. There is plenty to choose from, as the menu is extensive and full of options. Don’t let the name fool you, though, they offer a wide variety of healthy foods that include salads, crepes and pressed juices. Everything is made to order by a young, friendly and efficient lady named Liliana.
One of the best selling items on their menu is the Mexican style Bionico, or fruit parfait. It is a mixture of fresh diced apples, cantaloupe, Mexican papaya, pineapple, banana, strawberries and grapes – all topped with a house made sweet bionico cream, granola, shredded coconut and raisins. The Bionico cream is so popular, they always get requests for the recipe (which is a secret) – but you can purchase it by itself.
The favorite gourmet sandwich they serve is a Grilled Spicy Chipotle Chicken Panini. It is made with grilled chicken breast, avocadoes, sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh tomatoes, and lettuce with a tangy chipotle mayo on hot, grilled ciabatta bread, served with a fresh spring mix salad drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette. If you are craving a satisfying salad, they also have a garden-fresh tossed Chicken Caesar Salad, which also has a delicious house made Caesar dressing and juicy chicken breast.
There are countless varieties of sweet and savory crepes. Depending on your mood, you can have a dessert crepe (also offered a la mode) with fresh fruit or a nice, hearty savory crepe. They are even big enough to share with a friend, if you wish. The big seller here is the Nutella, Banana and Strawberries crepe, known as the Marseille, which is topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
There are a vast array of selections available here to fulfill many different cravings. Whether it is a smoothie, fruit plate, sandwich or salad you desire, Fruit Revolution at 3405-B Beverly Blvd in Montebello CA is a one stop restaurant for any meal of the day. They also have a second location in the City of Walnut at 750 N. Nogales Ave.
