Starting July 29, 2014, Starbucks is introducing a new set of food items, lunch sandwiches and beverages.
For starters, lets check out the lunch sandwiches.
Roasted Chicken Pesto and Shiitake Mushroom on Ciabatta Bread (PhP 165)
This warm sandwich is made of juicy chicken breast fillet tossed with pesto mayo sauce, Shiitake mushroom and melted Emmenthal and cheddar cheese in between Ciabatta bread.
Ratatouille on Cheese Semolina Bread (PhP 160)
Vegetarians, this is for you!
This warm, crusty multigrain bread is stuffed with cheese, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, Shiitake, and portobello mushrooms, garlic and onions.
Tuna Melt on Dark Multi-Grain Bread (PhP 175)
My personal favorite! I would really recommend that you try this one. Inside the toasted dark wheat bread is healthy classic tuna dill salad (tuna is also called “brain food”), slices of hard-boiled egg, and creamy melted cheese.
Sausage and Peppers Caserole on Cornmeal Bread (PhP 170)
Sliced sausages and bell peppers cooked in tomato Italian sauce is topped with cheddar cheese and spread inside cornmeal bread.
Ham and Egg Salad on Challah Bread (PhP 175)
Inside this Challah bread topped with sesame seeds are juicy slices of ham, tomatoes and creamy, tangy egg salad. I love egg salad so next to the Tuna Melt, this is my sandwich of choice.
Grilled Ham and Three Cheese on Whole Wheat Bread (PhP 175)
A returning favorite, those who missed this will welcome back this grilled cheese sandwich containing 3 different kinds of cheeses: Emmenthal, Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese) and juicy sliced ham. Italian herbed butter subtly seasons the whole wheat bread.
Now, let’s see the new dessert concoctions and food items…
Mango Coconut Sans Rival Cake (Slice – PhP 125; Whole – PhP 1,150)
The combination of sweet and smooth mango butter cream icing is combined with toasted coconut shards and three layers of crunchy and chewy meringue wafer.
Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Cookie (PhP 60)
A must try as far as I’m concerned, this dessert is made of chewy chocolate cookie liberally studded with roasted walnuts, chunks of dark and milk chocolate, gooey caramel squares and finished with a dash of sea salt. This is a perfect snack any time of the day.
Bacon Parmesan Stromboli (PhP 120)
This is a golden brown, crispy, flaky and buttery pastry crust filled with bacon, tomato, parmesan and mozzarella cheese and topped with chopped parsley.
Chicken Tex-Mex Wrap (PhP 170)
Enjoy a warm, soft tortilla filled with chicken breast fillet, roasted squash, corn, red beans, and finished with pimiento dressing and freshly chopped cilantro.
And of course, there are the new beverages (till September 15, 2014 only!)…
|Tall – PhP 180; Grande – PhP 190; Venti – PhP 200
This frappe features blended coffee flavored with Tiramisu sauce then topped with bits of biscuits, cheesecake-inspired whipped cream, Tiramisu sauce drizzle and a dusting of cocoa powder.
Banana Raspberry Frappuccino

This got me at “FRUITS!!!” The Banana Raspberry frappe Raspberry Blackcurrant juice with milk and a freshly peeled banana. Just the right beverage for one like me who chooses healthy.
