Starbucks' Asian Dolce Latte

Monday, March 04, 2013

Last Saturday, I was treated to a food pairing by Starbucks.

Food pairing you say?  I honestly thought it only was applicable to wines!  But lo and behold, we were all amazed that food, I mean real food can actually be paired with coffee!

I tell you, I was in awe - I never knew that food can taste as good when paired with coffee.  I think like wine, the flavors of the dishes stood out - without of course compromising the taste of coffee.

And so we were introduced to the Asian Dolce Latte.

So what's it all about?  Take a look!

See how beautiful it is?  Unfortunately, you won't be able to see the beauty of it when they serve it in the white cup!  But this is that it looks like!

Its a double espresso shot that is poured into steamed milk with Dolce sauce.  It tastes WONDERFUL - I am a lover of milk and this for me is THE perfect combination of coffee AND milk!  Do take the drink as it is, no need to mix of drink it with a stirrer straw (when applicable) because you'll get to experience the taste of the coffee and the milk as you finish the drink!  I love the creaminess of the milk at the bottom.

Here are some of the new food items on the menu!

This is my personal favorite:
Forest Ham and Monterey Jack Cheese on Brioche Bread

Dark Chocolate Turtle Cake

Crabstick Salad on French Butter Croissant

Salmon and Capers on Parmesan Bread
