On March 21, Jugo Juice launched a revamped food menu with 4 new sandwiches and 5 new wraps.

The new sandwiches are served on heritage sourdough from local bakery Terra Breads or a brand new natural and preservative free artisan bun from Ace Bakery called schiacciata.

I was invited to a media tasting of the new items and got to try the 4 sandwiches:

Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable on schiacciata bread

I was quite excited when Choco Coo Cafe opened in Coquitlam earlier this year. There are not many dessert/cafe options in the area, so it’s always nice to see another addition, especially seeing all the beautiful photos on Instagram. I was intrigued.

Pedro, one of the managing partners, hosted us that evening. A bit different from regular tasting event, Pedro didn’t have a set menu/agenda in mind. He had a few teas that he wanted us to try, but ultimately it all depended on how much we wanted to drink, and how much caffeine we could handle.

Overall, the experience was pretty neat. It was interesting to watch the process of making fresh matcha, from grinding the tea leaves, to brewing to serving. (more…)
