For a neighborhood that has always been short on healthy food choices, the affordable cold-pressed juices and smoothies at this stripped-down Sweet Auburn Curb Market outlet are a refreshing change of pace. Co-owners Chantel Jiroch and Kawai Laurencin use a hydraulic press to create combos like Kabango (kale, mango, banana, and almond milk) and Superfood (kale, mango, lime, pineapple, and apple). Sweet tooth? The peanut butter and jam smoothie is a must-order. Find Jiroch’s next outpost, Lucky Lotus, in Ponce City Market’s food hall. 209 Edgewood Avenue, rawesomejuicery.com
