In the mood for a cold, refreshing, super-smooth drink that’s not full of sugar and, for a change, doesn’t make your liver cry for mercy? Enter the Mango Lassi at Jaya’s Indian Cuisine in Southern Pines.
We’ve been in love with the takeout-only Jaya’s Indian Cuisine since they opened last November in the former space of Ashten’s A’Field, at 1020 N. May St. The mango lassi is just another reason to love them.
The takeout restaurant makes only 20 of these tangy, not-too-sweet yogurt-based smoothies ($4.99) every morning and sells out of them before the end of the lunch rush.
Oh, and pro tip: Lassi is not pronounced like the dog. Say it Lussi, and appear smarter when ordering. You’re welcome.
