Jenn’s Shout Out: The Daily Juice Cafe
The Daily Juice Café at 4500 Duval Street is my new jam. It’s the cream in my coffee, the chocolate chip in my cookie, the dreidle in my Jewish holiday. I want to put it on a raw, vegan, gluten-free, organic, living mixtape, blast it from my car stereo, and end world hunger. Because it could. It really could.
From juice to coconut bbq to raw chocolate, each item on the deliberately select and well-balanced menu is hand-picked with your five flavor centers in mind. The Thai Noodle Bowl is my favorite so far: organic, spiralized yam and daikon noodles with red bell pepper, sunflower sprouts, radish, coconut strips, and cilantro, all tossed in a creamy almond-ginger sauce. Yum! Not only does this dish (and everything else on the menu) satisfy every textural and temporal craving you could possibly have, it looks pretty, too. Real pretty. Daily Juice understands that eating is an experience and they have mastered the visual element with care and attention to detail. The love that goes in to each delicately placed morsel is unmistakable and is guaranteed to make your day better.
So, do something good for yourself. Go out and support your local food radicals, the rare ones who refuse to sacrifice quality for profit, and make the world a better place. One heavenly bite at a time.
