During the Kadayawan week last August 13,2013 Starbucks had invited us bloggers, to a night of Coffee tasting/latest Lunch Sandwiches launch & Starbucks Card launch at their SM Lanang Premiere branch. It was a night of fun, prizes, surprises & food tasting for us. I was excited to attend this as it was the 1st Starbucks event in Davao. I’m not much of a coffee lover but I love hanging out on coffee shops with friends and try their non-coffee drink/ food.
The healthy eaters, food lovers and starbucks regulars would be raving as Starbucks presents their 5 new Lunch sandwiches that would definitely satisfy not just the health-conscious foodies but also everyone who loves to try out something new every once in a while. Here are the latest on their menu:
Salami & Cheese on Marbled Rye Bread @ P165– Soft & Chewy bread with a sliced of salami, provolone and cheddar cheese. This combination is really good. Definitely one of my fave.
Spinach Artichoke and Mushroom on Herbed Multi-grain bread (MUST TRY!) @ P160– A vegetarian sandwich with a delicious blend of cheese, spinach, artichoke, mushrooms, garlic n onions. Its a healthy sandwich that is not just healthy but also tasty.
Bacon & Cheese on Herbed Ciabatta Bread (MUST TRY!) @ P165- Grilled cheese sandwich coupled with 6 types of cheeses and crispy bacon strips w/ seasoned creamy pesto sauce on Herbed Ciabatta bread. Its the ultimate comfort food that is sinfully delicious. Its the first sandwich I tasted during the food tasting that got me the “love at first bite” vote. Definitely a must-try.
Classic Tuna & Cheese on Dark Ciabatta Bread @ P175– Healthy classic tuna dill salad, slices of hard-boiled egg & creamy melted cheese on a toasted Ciabatta bread. It may look like a chocolate bread, but its ciabatta bread. Its one classic sandwich which is healthy and a meal on its own.
Roasted Chicken Pesto and Shitake Mushroom on Flat bread @ P165– Juicy roasted chicken breast fillet tossed with pesto mayo sauce and Shitake mushrooms with 2 types of cheeses on grilled flat bread. It somehow taste oriental due to the shitake mushrooms. Its something unique to try.
I usually visit Starbucks, order a drink or a slice of dessert, haven’t tried any of their sandwiches. It was just a few weeks back that I get to taste and appreciate the sandwiches that are in their menu.
