The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift card and a separate punch card good for 10 small gelatos at Matteo's Gelato (a $64 value) in Port Coquitlam. An Italian-style bistro, Matteo's serves up freshly crafted gelato and café fare every day of the week. The owner is a classically trained artisan versed in the tasty trade of gelato-crafting, an elaborate process that results in a denser, more flavourful alternative to ice cream and a softer, colder alternative to shoe leather. Matteo's balances its icy eats with panini ($5.95–$6.95) and sandwiches ($4.49–$5.49), as well as a selection of specialty coffees.
TripAdvisors rank Matteo's Gelato #6 out of 69 Port Coquitlam restaurants and give it an average of four owl eyes.
