A crunchy, peppery, gooey brekkie


When there's no brekkie at home, I treat myself to breakfast at the Starbucks Coffee branch at my workplace once in a while.

The premium coffee shop chain may have made a name for itself by selling blended-coffee beverages (that some people think are too sweet), but it also happens to possess a great-tasting breakfast menu, especially for sandwich fans. I had the Italian Sausage and Mozzarella with Mushroom Aioli sandwich, one of their larger sandwiches.
The Italian sausage means finely ground peppercorns embedded in the meat, so the filling is mildly peppery, helped along by the smoothness and gooeyness of the cheese. I had the sandwich warmed, so the bread is nicely toasty and crumbly, adding a nice counterpoint to the texture. Curiously, there's not much evidence of the mushrooms.

On balance, this is a nicely lavish treat to look forward to at the end of a busy week's work. :)
