It has been some time since I did a Starbucks post...did you know that someone actually brought their iguana to Starbucks (on a leash)?...thank goodness they were sitting outside that thing was HUGE!

I tried their sweet potato macaron, which had a cream center.

It was okay but didn't have much sweet potato flavor.

Their keema curry rolls are good. There are 4 rolls and each one is filled with spicy curry.

I also like their nut danish.

Actually I think I like anything with a lot of nuts on it.

At the convenience store, they have a hazelnut flavored coffee drink, it was okay but I wouldn't get this again.

What have you been up to?

Well, right away I'd say the Starbucks in Japan are infinitely more intersting than any on the East Coast! (Or London, for that matter!) Love that sweet potato goodness and the curry rolls! I haven't popped into a Starbucks in ages, you've given me an idea for my next coffee break, heehee :)

Giant iguana at Starbucks?! Yikes. I think I would fail at trying to be blasé about that!

Nut danish looks yummy! As do the curry rolls.

you heard that Starbucks in the U.S. is gonna start trying to sell beer and wine in the afternoons when the coffee crowd has died down?

I must be tired--I read that as Sweet Potato Macaroni.
;-) That iguana is huge!

Japan has got it one better if you can bring your pet iguana to Starbucks! I would be like...WHOA!

Hope you have fun at your Starbucks Jude :)

I wish you come back to Japan soon Momiji :)

I'm just glad it wasn't sitting at the table next to me, Anon :)

~fer, Amazing yeah?

My Aunty just emailed me about that Nate, would never work in Japan, they don't allow smoking indoors ;)

at least the iguana woke you up Debinhawaii ;)

you know that if the iguana is allowed, your two boys would definitely be welcome Rowena :)

Take care everyone!

Kat - All restaurants and bars here and in many parts of the mainland don't allow smoking either, but they don't seem to be hurting.

K and S said...

Yeah Nate, but in Japan EVERYONE smokes in places that have alcohol and anywhere that will allow smoking...I don't think this country will ever go non-smoking, even if they keep raising the cigarette prices.

Take care.

Those curry rolls sound great!

Did you get a photo of that iguana?!

K and S said...

Thanks Su-Lin, if you look carefully at the first picture, you'll see its legs!

Take care.

Love seeing the Starbucks offerings outside the US!

Makes me appreciate Starbucks Japan whenever I go home K:)

Take care.
