Austin’s unofficial slogan, Keep Austin Weird, started as a rallying cry for small, locally owned business, and this de facto mission statement is exemplified at JuiceLand, an organic juice and natural smoothie bar. The music played in the store is funky. The art on the walls is progressive and loud. The employees are often eccentric and sometimes, well, weird. After all, what could be weirder than serving vegan food in the heart of barbecue country? The shop originally served only smoothies and juices but has expanded over the years to include a variety of grab-and-go vegan options, like noodles made from zucchini, a "fried rice” dish made with cauliflower rice, and a couple of burritos that take their flavor cues from Mexico and Thailand.
