Starbucks Adds a Sushi Burrito to Menu

They're jumping on that "sushiritto" trend!

August 22, 2017

Starbucks made a big announcement about their menu, but it has nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice anything. I'm sure that news is coming any day now!

If you've visited one of their larger locations recently, you may notice they are offering more food items. This morning I am eating the steak and egg wrap!

But the big news with their menu isn't about my breakfast wrap. It's about a lunch or dinner item they are now offering. When you think of Starbucks, I'm sure you don't associate them with anything sushi related. But that's about to change!

The Chicken Maki Roll is a seaweed-wrapped creation that contains sushi rice, shredded chicken, cucumber, pickled cabbage, onions, and avocado with tomatillo salsa. It's part of the new Mercato Line. But don't go running to your closest Starbucks to get one because they are only being offered at two Chicago locations. It's supposed to be available at more locations soon. 

Can I just get on my soap box for a second? I feel like Charlotte area Starbucks are super late to get all these awesome new items. Last year, it was near impossible to find the protein packs that have the meat, cheese, and hard boiled egg. Starbucks needs to step up the game in Charlotte.
