TL;DR – Sounds like a shiok!
Looks like Starbucks Singapore’s already in the mood to celebrate the nation’s 54th birthday as they drop their special Singapore-inspired menu and a series of limited-edition National Day merchandise featuring local landmarks!
This year, Starbucks has brought back its iconic local Shiok-ah-ccino that comes with a new recipe.
Smooth vanilla cream Frappuccino dances with chocolatey chips and is served with a waffle crisp and complete with an oh-so-Singaporean Shiok! chocolate topper – Steady lah, sounds like a shiok!
By the way, Starbucks is also giving out a free Shiok reusable straw and straw clip set with any Venti-sized Shiok-ah-ccino purchased, while stocks last.
Very Shiok Food
Accompanying the Shiok-ah-ccino is a mouthwatering menu of familiar local flavors with a modern twist.
Hainanese Chicken Rice Quinoa Salad Served with Ginger Chili Dressing
A Starbucks rendition of the quintessential Singapore dish – made with a medley of cauliflower rice, quinoa, poached chicken slices, achar, chicken skin crisps and chicken rice sauce.
Laksa Croissant Bowl
Housed in a soft croissant bowl and topped with a prawn, hard-boiled egg and fragrant laksa leaves – imagine having a bowl of laksa, without the noodles.
