Guide Review - One Lucky Duck -- Salt Therapy for New York Detox

Stop by One Lucky Duck Juice & Takeaway for a quick to-go meal that's truly good for you. Everything on the menu is raw, vegan, organic -- and very tasty.

The creative salads never disappoint and the spicy Thai lettuce wraps and zucchini and tomato lasagna are long-time customer favorites (the "cheese" is made with nut butters).

The sweet treats are also delicious, especially the ice cream (again, nut butters instead of dairy).

You can also pick up recipe books and ingredients to create your own raw food dishes at home.

One Lucky Duck is not a budget meal option. Salads and savory dishes run $11-$19. For dessert, you'll pay between $5 (for a fig bar) and $12 (for a chocolate ganache tart). The prices reflect the high-quality organic ingredients. A sweet indulgence from One Lucky Duck may cost a bit more, but you won't pay the price of feeling bloated and awful after eating it.
