Juicy Fruit and Oxygen

MTOrganiclab is the place to go if you're craving a fresh vitamin boost.
Another posh shopping mall may well be the last thing Moscow needs, but another fresh juice bar never goes astray. And the new Organiclab is not just your average juice bar.

Located on the bottom floor of the new Lotte Plaza, Organiclab is well situated to serve the well-heeled patrons perusing the mall's fashionable boutiques.

The range of freshly squeezed juices on the menu is amazing. Prices start at 99 rubles for 250 milliliters of freshly squeezed orange juice and head up to a hefty 1,790 for 400 milliliters of either blackberry, dewberry or raspberry juice. There's even mangosteen juice, 1,390 rubles for 400 milliliters and a strawberry-mangosteen mix for 790 rubles. A mix of lemon, orange, honey and berries is called "anti-cold," and costs 190 rubles. A four-apple scale rates each juice's value in terms of energy, cleansing, immunity, digestion and skin.

Organiclab does not stop at fresh squeezed juices, however. It also offers a variety of smoothies starting at 119 rubles for apple and carrot going up to 490 rubles for mango and raspberry. There are more substantial offering as well, including salads such as mixed vegetables with orange-mustard sauce (180 rubles) or salad of chanterelles with Parmigiano cheese (230 rubles). Soups include crab cream soup (190 rubles) and champignon cappuccino with truffle oil (150 rubles). There are even hot mains, such as sea bass fillet with vegetables and pumpkin puree under a white wine sauce (350 rubles) or tiger prawn pasta with a tomato and basil sauce (350 rubles).

And for those who want something lighter -- much lighter -- Organiclab serves oxygen. Five minutes costs 89 rubles, 10 minutes costs 139 rubles and a six-liter takeout tank will set you back 539 rubles.
