Didn’t manage to catch the Impossible Rendang Pie by Starbucks earlier this June? No worries, the coffee house is back again this month with two new food items – the Impossible Pasta Salad Bowl and Impossible Pie. And this time, these additions are staying for good.
Following increasing demands for plant-based choices, Starbucks remains committed to expanding their environmentally friendly menu in a bid to contribute positively to global food system sustainability.
With the two items available all year round, Starbucks is one step closer to their global aspiration of becoming a more resource-positive company as well.
The Impossible Pie features ground Impossible Burger within a savoury medley of flavours, encased in buttery, flaky short-crust pastry. The salad bowl on the other hand is a vibrant toss of fusilli pasta and greens amongst Impossible meatballs, served with a soy sesame dressing.
According to Patrick Kwok, general manager, Starbucks Singapore, we can look forward to handcrafted beverages with plant-based options in the coming months. We’re definitely keeping our eyes peeled for them!
