It’s Christmas Season
A bunch of us were invited to a food (and drink!) review at Starbucks Damansara Utama and I was more than thrilled to accept the invitation! Later when I knew it was going to be a Christmasy affair, I became a nostalgic wreck thinking of the good old days in London, where it would be very cold at this time of the year and Starbucks became one of the best places to warm up to sip a mug of hot chocolate <3
It was pretty obvious the place was done up, and I suspect not just at this branch. In fact, Christmas seems to be everywhere extra early this year!
After so long I bumped into Shaz Mukhtar, a great friend and company, who I haven’t been seeing for ages due to my busy schedule. He’s been very patient with me and I really hope I can return his efforts this coming Christmas for being the dearest friend I’ve ever had throughout my problematic life :))
Maybe I’ll get him one of these gorgeous mugs instead… Don’t they make lovely gifts? 🙂
Decors were a-plenty, definitely setting the mood just right 😀
Okay maybe not true, but here’s a Merry Christmas to you!
When we got upstairs we saw our spot immediately, marked by these very nice looking stands… it says “Reserved” for us 😀
Okay moving on to the drinks! The two new drinks on board the Christmas menu are Christmas Toffee Nut Latte & Peppermint Mocha and I chose the latter purely because I wanted something minty, and it was! Yummy, smooth and delicious, I finished my Grande in a blink of an eye.
As I remembered it, it was one of the yummiest dessert here! Just too bad there’s no alcohol in it, yea? 😛
A clear winner, this one, especially among the girls. Well, and Shaz too. He’s not a girl 😛 MUST TRY!
If you’re in for a cheesy delight, the Marble Cheesecake is for you.
But for a better taste (well, for me la, I’m a BIG fan of blueberries! – but not blackberry k) try the Blueberry Cheesecake, it’s the yummers!
Not a big fan of the Eclaire, but apparently it got smothered pretty quickly 😛
YUMMY YUMMY THERE’S LOVE IN MY TUMMY! Sorry la, peanut better ANYTHING is damn good 😀
Jazzy Lemon Cheesecake ain’t too sweet nor sour, and just nice for a Christmassy feeling 😉
Now this is sinful. And beautiful. And tasty. And yummy. And sweet. Wait, did I say sinful?
Love the icing, best eaten with butter and jam!
There were lots of food too, and luckily there was many of us, otherwise there’d be an overload of yummy pastries to warm your tummies!
I found some yummy, and some mediocre. While the lasagne looking dish here looks yummy, I wish they had more spices in it like the Chicken Kapitan Pie, else it would be awesome!
The sandwich leaves nothing much to sight, but you’d be surprised how tasty those morsels of eggs and sausage can be 😛
The Shepherd’s Pie, however, leaves me nothing to say as I chomped down into the creamy insides and the pastry.
A look at the Shepherd’s Pie gives you an amazing yummilicious, saliva-inducing moment that would whet your appetite up. That’s Rebecca’s camera right there taking a good shot right into the insides, take a look at the picture in her post! – http://www.rebeccasaw.com/starbucks-malaysia-more-food-choices-on-its-new-menu/
Suffice to say there were MORE than enough to go around. Another must try before I end is the Chicken Kapitan Pie. It’s really special, as if the pastry used is infused with special herbs to give it a unique taste complimenting the curry chicken inside 🙂
And that pretty much concludes the fun experience I had with Starbucks! Great meeting place, great hang out place to meet friends, amazing love spread all over the place and all these make up the ingredients needed for a perfect Christmas moment with your loved ones 🙂
Merry Coming Christmas to you, would-be Starbucks customers!
