There’s 60+ days of summer left and the Starbucks menu just got a summer makeover. Starting Tuesday, July 11th, Canadian customers can head to stores and get their hands on these new menu items:

 

NEW Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea Infusions

Starbucks is reimaging their iced tea menu. New Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea Infusions are freshly brewed with tea, fruit and botanicals – pure, house-steeped goodness. This innovative flavour delivery uses freshly steeped herbal tea infusions to create a perfectly balanced flavoured iced tea. With just a touch of liquid cane sugar, Teavana® Shaken Iced Tea Infusions are a low-calorie and refreshing new option for customers to enjoy on warm summer afternoons and beyond. There are three infusions to choose from:

NEW Starbucks Blonde® & Stormy

In February of this year, Starbucks introduced Starbucks Blonde® Espresso Roast exclusively in Canada, as a second core espresso option, and it has been enthusiastically received by coffee-loving Canadians since. Starbucks is continuing their beverage innovation this summer by introducing a whole new level of artistry with Starbucks Blonde® & Stormy! This beverage shows off true barista craft and starts with Starbucks Blonde® Espresso, combined with a layer of whole milk, topped with cold foam and finished with Cinnamon Dolce Topping. Blonde Espresso is extra smooth and sweet; it is a unique blend of Latin American and African coffee beans, roasted to bring out the lighter side of espresso.

Sal y Limon Vancouver Mexican Tacos Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Sal Y Limon is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Vancouver. Located on the corner between Kingsway and Fraser – across from Osteria Savio Volpe and Matchstick Coffee Roasters. This unassuming restaurant offers hearty burritos, tortas, tacos, quesadillas, huaraches, taquitos and more.

Aside from the constant line up, this Mexican cantina is spacious. It is lively, welcoming and casual. There is even a kid play area for your littles.

To enhance your experience, there is a self serve sauce station with a rainbow of spiciness. My favorite remains to be jalapeno, avocado, and Arbol.

A thirst quenching Jarritos Guava soda is the perfect pairing to my tacos.

 

Sal y Limon Vancouver Mexican Tacos Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Sal Y Limon Menu offers gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options also. Each taco is goes for only $2.25 or $2.75 with cheese. On the table today are Al Pastor (marinated pork with pineapple with cheese), Fish (battered, deep fried basa), Lengua (beef tongue) and Cochinita Pibil ( slow roasted spicy pork with cheese). The possibilities are endless and every time we come here, we always order something different. These 4-inch corn tortilla, comes with onions and cilantro but you can add your choice of filling.

Also on the menu are burritos, tortas, quesadillas, huaraches, taquitos and more should you prefer something more substantial.

Yama Cafe Vancouver Hastings Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Many people were saddened by the news that Basho Cafe was closing. Instead, Yama Cafe reopened and kept the essence of Basho. Taking over is Chef Yama – a former employee. Most of the original menu and spirit remains. I came here a while ago with a few foodie friends for a little treat.

The menu remains focused on afternoon sweet treats, coffee and tea lattes, rice bowls, salads, bread and soup. Tuna Tataki bowls are still $14 – an expensive option on food choices.

Matcha Latte 4.25: your choice of unsweetened or sweetened.  Afternoon tea cakes, matcha and sesame shortbreads, brownies and mochi muffins are priced between $1 to $3.

Yama is a cute cafe and a good hang out place to catch up with friends. Prices are pretty expensive for the small portions but it is a good alternative to the everyday coffee and croissant pastries.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

Upon arriving you are greeted at the gate with beautiful grapes and a stunning view. Even on a cloudy day, the view is mesmerizing. We sat on the grass for a long while talking nonsense, life and just soaking up God’s creation.

In the end, guests will enjoy an extensive tasting of 4 award-winning wines and a $5.00 gift voucher for our Wine Shop.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
