I admit it. I make mistakes. We all do. Still, there is no excuse for some mistakes in life. I, for example, am a native Texan who has spent 40 of my 43 years in Texas. Of the 3 years I spent living in that part of the planet called Not Texas, 2 were spent living in Mexico City. You would think that would mean that I would know better than to order a breakfast taco/burrito from Starbucks of all places. Weakness overcame me about a week ago, however, and I tried the Starbucks Seared Steak, Egg, and Tomatillo Wrap. Consider this post my apology for that mistake.
As is the way with such things, the steak, egg, and tomatillo wrap looked fantastic in the display counter. A bit of window fog prevented me from taking a good picture, but it really did look good. Good enough to get me to overlook the fact that a breakfast taco cost $4.95 and came out of shrink wrap. Unfortunately, what I got looked like the picture at the top of this post. Cut in half in my car, it looked like this:
Here’s the thing. As $5 breakfast tacos from shrink wrap go it isn’t that bad. It’s just that I could have better spent the money on 2 tacos from somebody who knew what they were doing, or alternatively perhaps on a latte. The steak tasted decent, but the eggs were pointless. If you searched deep enough, you could find a couple of sauteed onions. Starbucks knows what they are doing with drink and pastries, and henceforth I shall stick to those things.
EDIT ON 08 NOVEMBER 2017: I was back today and was able to get a picture of this in the display case. The picture below is what Starbucks thinks it should look like. If you want a better breakfast option and find yourself at Starbucks, you might try the ham and cheese croissant instead.
