Fuhgeddaboudit Food: The Bush Doctor Juice Bar

Posted: Updated:
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT -

One Brooklyn woman says ginger can cure a lot of ailments -- and she started a juice bar to show it.

"It's a superfood," says Tiecha Merritt, founder of The Bush Doctor Juice Bar on Tompkins Avenue in Bed-Stuy. "It helps build up the immune system."

Merritt herself isn't a doctor, but she says she's a strong believer in using food as medicine.

One of her specialties is the "Witch Brew Tea." It comes in a cauldron-like bowl, and Merritt says it's exactly what you need if you have a cold.

There's also ginger beer, ginger shots and ginger coffee. Non-ginger items on the menu include sweet potato fries and veggie burgers.
