Starbucks lets you play with your lunch with their new Bistro Bowls
They have new sandwiches too!
(SPOT.ph) Already thinking of what to get for lunch? If you’re stumped for choices then we have some good news. Starbucks is expanding their mid-day menu with new sandwiches and something else that’s totally new: Bistro Bowls!
Bistro Bowls are gourmet meals that you can take with you, wherever you go. And they let you have some DIY fun too. Each bowl comes with the ingredients portioned out in sturdy plastic containers, which are then arranged neatly inside a reusable bowl. Not only will this make you feel like a domestic goddess preparing your own meal, but it also keeps each element fresh until you’re ready to eat.
Currently, Starbucks offers their Bistro Bowls in two variants. The Sweet Potato Salad is healthy and hearty, with chopped potatoes and sweet potatoes, onion, celery, mixed greens, and a hard-boiled egg. Mix them all together in your bowl and toss them in the honey-mustard dressing.
Cold Soba with Chicken
If you enjoy Asian-inspired flavors, try the Cold Soba with Chicken, which has soba noodles that you can toss with chopped carrots and green onions, shiitake mushrooms, chicken strips, and a sesame oil-flavored dressing.
Together with the Bistro Bowls, Starbucks is also launching new sandwiches, perfect for when you need grub on the go.
Clubhouse on Sourdough Bread
The clubhouse sandwich is back, this time as the filling Clubhouse on Sourdough Bread, with chicken salad, farmer’s ham, egg, bacon, arugula, and mozzarella cheese stuffed inside soft sourdough bread.
Salmon Dill on Multigrain Bread
For something a little lighter, have the Salmon Dill on Multigrain Bread, with salmon flakes, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, and a sliced hard-boiled egg—you'll love the nice, velvety mouthfeel of this sandwich.
Cheese Steak on Ciabatta Bread
The Cheese Steak on Ciabatta Bread is perfect for cheese lovers, especially when freshly reheated with the mozzarella oozing out of the ciabatta. This sandwich is also stuffed with sliced beef, caramelized onions, bell peppers, and sliced button mushrooms.
With three new sandwiches and two Bistro Bowls, you have lunch for an entire work week covered. Thanks, Starbucks!
Starbucks' new Bistro Bowls and sandwiches will be available starting February 21.
