But for this month, on September 13, 2011 to be exact, they are introducing again another set of food selection but this time customers can enjoy their morning beverage with new breakfast items. Bloggers were invited to taste the new breakfast items at Starbucks' newly opened heritage concept store at J.P. Laurel Building located at Roxas Boulevard, Manila City.

SPAM® CLASSIC, EGG AND CHEESE ON CORNMEAL BREAD - PHP 110
TURKEY & CHICKEN HAM, EGG WHITE AND EMMENTHAL ON WHOLE WHEAT CORNMEAL BREAD - PHP 110
If you want a flavorful sandwich but with less fat, this savory breakfast sandwich is for you. It is made with slices of turkey and chicken ham, Emmenthal cheese and egg white on a toasty warmed whole wheat cornmeal bread.
VIGAN LONGANIZA, EGG, AND MOZZARELLA ON WHOLE WHEAT PANDESAL - PHP 110
A famous Filipino breakfast made into a gourmet sandwich. We combined garlicky, spicy, tangy and salty Vigan longaniza with tomato salsa and mozzarella cheese on a warm whole wheat Pandesal.
SPINACH, ARTICHOKE, MUSHROOM AND MOZZARELLA ON RYE BREAD - PHP 110
Starbucks new vegetarian sandwich has everything you need for the day. A crusty warm artisan rye bread stuffed with a delicious blend of cheese, spinach, artichoke, mushrooms, garlic and onions. A vegetarian’s delight!
After tasting everything, my first choice is the Vigan Longanisa, Egg and Mozzarella on Whole Wheat Pandesal then the Spinach, Artichoke, Muchroom and Mozzarella on Rye Bread as my second and my third would be the Turkey & Chichen Ham, Egg White and Emmenthal on Whole Wheat but you should try all of their breakfast sandwiches because they're all so yummy! You should also try their French Toast, which goes perfectly with the Starbucks Anniversary Blend because the sweetness of the French Toast lessens the heaviness and the big flavor of the coffee. The big body of the coffee is actually due to the aging, for 3 to 5 years, done to the Indonesian beans used.
