Richmond – Pacific East Mall - J & S Coffee & Tea House – Ham, pork ear & pork patty sandwich

Pork three-ways … so to speak.

So … has anyone tried this? Yeah, I gotta guess if anyone did, they aren’t alive to tell the tale.

Besides the above sandwich they also have sandwiches dedicated to each of the piggy parts solo, BBQ chicken and veggie … kind of anti-climatic after that pig-o-rama combo. From the pictures they look like banh mi.

I’m not sure if these are on the week-end only food or sold all week.

There’s a little food counter at the door with a tray of display food. On the week-ends they sell …

Hong Kong fish balls (regular and shai mai)
Hong Kong dace (a fish I think)
Hong Kong sweet squid
Vietnamese shrimp spring rolls

Hong Kong-style egg waffles (regular, coconut-sesame and pandan leaf)
Hong Kong egg puffs (same three flavors. The pandan are a lovely green)

I think they always sell shrimp meat balls, fish meat balls and lobster meat balls. I'm guessing the giant toast (with peanut, sesame, coconut, garlic butters, strawberry jam, chocolate or condensed milk) is available daily too.

Every day they sell sushi. It is pre-packaged stuff that looks what is sold in the supermarket. It’s in a little refrigerated case. After 8 pm it is 50 % off. At 2pm this stuff wasn’t looking too appealing.

Double Rainbow Ice Cream is sold and there are one or two Asian flavors like lychee.

There’s coffee and espresso drinks using Illy coffee.

Of course their reason for being is the long (105) list of milk teas, smoothies and bubble teas. All drinks come without pearls. There is a 50 cent extra charge to add tapioca.

I’m leaning toward trying the rose milk tea which is supposed to have real petals in it.

There are about 10 small tables in this tiny shop. So small … so fully packed.

Any thoughts about J & S? How’s the food? Any recommendations?
