Starbucks SM City Tarlac had some major make over and I LOVE IT!! It's 2x bigger plus it has a second floor! Very spacious, lots of wood installments, long tables, long wall couch, cushioned seats and lots of elegant touches! Drop lamps, a huge coffee map and more outlets for charging - it's a big upgrade compared to the previous store. I'm so proud to say that it's now at par with some of the nicest Starbucks store in the Metro, even better than most!

Anyhow, went here with the husband to pass time while waiting for the screening of Dr. Strange. I got their seasonal drink - Frapulla Frappucino which comes out during the Halloween Season. This drink is pretty good.

A layer of mocha at the bottom followed by a sweet cream based ice blended layer with hints of hazelnut, topped with a thick strawberry sauce layer and finished off with whipped cream. It's more than just pretty. The marriage of mocha and strawberry was super! There was an ice cream like taste to it and each sip was what the *%#!?

Catch it before it's gone! AVAILABLE ONLY UNTIL THE 31st of OCTOBER!!!

Went straight to Tarlac as soon as I arrived and when my daughter saw me, Mommy date was the first order of business! She wanted some croissant so off we went to Starbucks!!

This place has improved a lot in terms of efficiency and customer service. Good job!

Got a Venti Strawberries and Cream and OMG I haven't had this for ages! A sure fire hit with children - rich strawberry syrup, blended cream and lots of calories 128541

Also got a Ham & Cheese Danish coz they didn't have croissants anymore plus a Cinnamon Danish. I still like the Cinnamon Bun/Roll more than the Danish though.

Ahhhh... So good to be back! 128536

Just when I thought that my hot Chai Tea Latte x Soy x Matcha is the best, I tried to get an Iced version and I'm totally sold in one sip! IT WAS SO GOOD, so freakin' good! 127861128561128557

Imagine : Iced Chai Tea Latte x Soy x scoop of Matcha - gah! Maybe since it was a bigger serving, they were able to put in a whole scoop rather than maybe just half a scoop when I got the short size. There was more Matcha goodness here with an after taste of Chai. The sweet and bitter flavors of the Matcha went so well with the earthy and spiciness of Chai. Great combination indeed!

Note: add 20php for soy and 30php for Match Scoop

I braved the long line in this Starbucks branch to get the last sticker for my planner! While waiting, I was looking at their menu to figure what to get. I wanted to try something that I haven't tried yet. But then Chai Tea Latte called my attention. I've tried it before and wasn't so into it. So I tried to be a little creative. I ordered this ---

Chai Tea Latte - asked for Soy instead of the usual milk then asked for a scoop of Match! Boom! BEST DRINK EVER!!! Okay, maybe not for all. But if you LOVE Matcha, then you should try this 128525 Chai went so well with Matcha I wanna cry 128514128514128514128514

Now, my only question is the quantity of the drink. I think there was too little? I haven't touched that in the picture. Errrr didn't bother to ask because the Baristas were way too busy with all the orders pouring in by bulk!

Will order this again soon 128523

Before the month ends, it's time to redeem the free SB cake for my birth month! Thought I wouldn't get a chance until the little girl requested cheesecake for dessert!

We got a venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch - decaf. Not sure why buy this drink always varies in consistency when ordered in different stores. The last time I had it, I loved the ripples of caramel that I got, beautifully swirled into the frappe. Then there were times like this were the caramel syrup is boringly sitting at the bottom of the drink giving you a migraine inducing sweetness. 128548

Then we got their New York Cheesecake - with strawberry syrup. I love that it was rich and creamy but this slice was too crumbly. Haven't had it this way before. The strawberry was a good compliment, adding character and color to the cheesecake slice. Great birthday freebie from Starbucks! 128521

Least favorite Starbucks branch. It's small and packed! The baristas are noisy, can't even stand to stay here for 20 minutes especially on weekdays. The place is packed with loud and obnoxious high school kids.

Been here a few times. But this will be my first review for this SB branch, i guess.

Always crowded, maybe because it's the only Starbucks nearby. The baristas are okay but not as friendly as the baristas in other SB branch. One example was when I was waiting for my drink, the barista said to the other barista in a low voice "tignan mo, anu bang pangalan yan?!" (Giggles), then called "Di-sel?" It was my cup. And the nerve! Didn't even apologize or said anything else when I took my cup. Haller?! I heard you and you saw me standing right by the counter. I find it very rude. Grrrr... Okay stop the nagging. Hahaha

Probably the worst Starbucks experience I've had so far - inexperienced Baristas, understaffed and lame execution of whipped cream lol!

So I was there around 8PM and the store was packed. It tends to get really crowded because the space was small. I'm sure they did not anticipate the outpour of people but hey! It was a holiday! The line was long, the Baristas were slow and there were just about five of them.

I got a grande Gingerbread Frappe - decaf, minus one shot. The Barista was startled with my request and had to ask me several times. Then he did not ask for my name. After that, I went to the claiming area and saw how lousy they laced each drink with whipped cream. Looked like a lump of cream instead of a beautiful swirl of white foam. Gah! After 20minutes of waiting for my drink, it reached the bar. They can't call out the owner since the Barista did not get my name so I had to check if that was what I ordered for. The cup then showed 1 shot instead of just +1 shot or -1 shot but the bBarista declared that it had +1. I clarified and they all stopped and checked on my drink. No one was sure if my drink had an extra shot or just one shot. Golly!!

They offered to change it but I didn't have time to wait so I grabbed my drink and went out - totally pissed! Good thing when hubby tasted it, it wasn't bitter which meant that there was indeed only one shot.

Bad experience on a great holiday! 128527

i'm collecting stars, hence another starbucks review.:)
if you're looking for something light to go with a frappe then this is not the one to order. but still, the chicken fajita roll is delicious with the right amount of herbs and spices. didn't finish the whole thing though, maybe next time when i'm really hungry. hot coffee might be a match!

i got tired of the christmas beverages so i ordered my usual, grande green tea frappuccino with hazelnut syrup. nonfat, no whip so it's about 210 calories, which makes me less guilty. hehe 128513BUT! i heard this sandwich calling me128585128584, hello spam, egg, and cheddar cheese sandwich! i say you can never go wrong with this especially when it's served warm. comfort food indeed! 128077128516
