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 Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Citrus Flavoured White Tea Infusion/Lemonade Teavana® White Tea combined with freshly steeped peach citrus fruit and botanical infusion and water or lemonade, lightly sweetened and shaken with ice
NEW Teavana® Shaken Iced Pineapple Flavoured Black Tea Infusion/Lemonade Teavana® Black Tea combined with freshly steeped pineapple fruit and botanical infusion and water or lemonade, lightly sweetened and shaken with ice
NEW Teavana® Shaken Iced Strawberry Flavoured Green Tea Infusion/Lemonade Teavana® Green Tea combined with freshly steeped strawberry fruit and botanical infusion and water or lemonade, lightly sweetened and shaken with ice
Each beverage is handcrafted and made to each customer’s preference, including customizing tea bases or enjoying without liquid cane sugar. When unsweetened, they are 0 calories and 0 grams of sugar
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 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 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.
If you’ve never been to Sal Y Limon, you are missing out. The tacos here are very tasty and I highly recommend them.

I have a soft spot for a few restaurants on the intersection of Fraser and Kingsway. Osteria Savio Volpe is one of them. The other is Sal Y Limon. I love the classic rustic Italian dishes mixed with a few modern twists. Compared to our previous […]

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.
Tea Fog Houjicha Latter 4: Unsweetened tastes the best and has a soft fragrant aroma.
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.
