My Starbucks Order (& More!)

Hi Friends!

Today I thought it would be fun to share my favorite, tried and true, order-all-the-time – FAST FOOD ORDERS πŸ™‚ I love eating food and also talking about it hehe.

If there is anything I should try, please let me know!! Bonus: Michael shares his fav orders too!

My Starbucks Order:

Ya girl loves starbies. I also like Peet’s coffee but Starbucks is so convenient with all their locations and their rewards/apps is the BEST. I get matcha lattes about 2x+ a week! The Starbucks matcha does not taste like authentic japanese matcha, but I might like it better because of that! It is very easy to drink. Please note it is automatically sweetened.

  • Drink: Green Tea Matcha Latte (Note: This is different from their regular green tea)
  • Size: Venti – I normally get a Venti since it’s only an extra 50 cents or so, and then I save half for the next day/morning!
  • Ice: Light Ice – Don’t let them gyp you with the ice! And when using the app, it’s not awkward at all to ask for less ice since you can just click the button! Rarely will I get it hot
  • Milk: Soy Milk – I like the taste with their soy milk (which is vanilla) the best. But I’ve heard too much so milk is not good for girls, so sometimes I will get it with regular milk or almond milk. I am waiting for Starbucks to jump on oat milk!! I love oat milk!
  • Hot Items: If I am getting something to eat, I will get either the Impossible Breakfast sandwich or the Bacon & Gruyere sous vide egg bites. Both are so good! (kinda greasy/heavy though)
  • Bakery Treat: Because I have so many rewards, I usually also pick up a free treat for my dad! Remember to request it to be warmed!
  • Other: I also always request a grande iced water
My Chipotle Order

This was my high school ADDICTION – I used to split a Chipotle bowl with Michelle almost every week!! Protip: You can ask for extra everything for free (except meat)! 

  • Burrito or Bowl? Bowl – They give you more with a bowl and you can ask for tortillas on the side for free!
  • White Rice or Brown Rice? Brown rice – I like the taste and it’s semi healthier (?)
  • Black Beans or Pinto Beans? Pinto Beans – I like the texture of the and they are quite flavorful
  • Meat? CHICKEN! The chicken there is really tasty
  • Salsa? Extra Pico de Gallo for me – I LOVE pico de gallo and always get extra at any Mexican place! I love tomatoes and the added freshness
  • Extras? Lettuce, sour cream, cheese, lettuce – The works. Sometimes I’ll get fajitas if I’m in the mood but I prefer without. No corn – I like the corn, but corn is hard to digest heh
  • Avocado? I’m too cheap so I usually don’t get it. There is so much deliciousness going on already so it is not necessary!
My McDonalds Order

Ah, micky dees…I love it. I know that’s so bad to say, but I really do. I don’t get it too often anymore (mainly on roadtrips), but micky dees used to be MY JAM growing up. I usually get:

  • Large Fries – McDonalds has the best french fries, FIGHT ME
  • McDouble – Something about that cheese and those pickles does it for me!!
  • Chicken McNuggets – With sweet n’ sour sauce ONLY! 
My In-N-Out Order

You can’t beat In-n-Out. It’s so good and so affordable. And I think In-n-Out is wayyyy better than Shake Shack – how is it even a debate??

  • Fries – I just get them regular. My parents like to ask for extra crispy
  • Cheeseburger – Growing up, we never got cheeseburgers because I guess my parents didn’t want to pay for the extra cheese >.< I had my first cheeseburger with Michael and it was life-changing and now we all get cheeseburgers. I normally ask for extra veggies, but then I pull them out and eat it on the side LOL
  • EXTRA SECRET SAUCE – This is the KEY. Get 2 packs per person if you can. Slather it all over your fries and burger…so decadentttttt!!!
My Poki Bowl Order

This is a socal staple! Poki spots are popping up everywhere nowadays. I was hesitant to try poki for a long time (seemed like too much raw fish), but please try it! It is very delicious, relatively healthy, and filling.

  • Base – I like brown rice!
  • Fish – Salmon is my favorite πŸ™‚ I like how soft it is
  • Sauce – I normally go with the house sauce and/or spicy mayo! Seems all the sauces are quite tasty, have never had a bad one!
  • Toppings – My go-to favorite toppings are seaweed salad, edamame, pickled ginger, avocado, cucmbers, sesame seeds and furikake

My Starbucks Order

I used to work at Starbucks for around 2 or 3 years. So I tried many of their drinks. Honestly, it’s all sugar BUT man they have some good sugar. What is better than sugar? SALT! That’s why my favorite drink is the Sea Salt Caramel Mocha Latte when it comes out during winter (giving me summer sadness). Fun Fact, you can technically get that drink all year round but without the salt but we are all here for that salt. So, thank you but no thank you. All this to say my go to drink is black coffee with 2 stevia packs. My go to latte is the Cinnamon dolce latte.

  • Drink: Cinnamon Dolce Latte
  • Size: Grande
  • Ice: nope (if you do, you can get it blended; not a CDL Frappe)
  • Milk: Whole
  • Hot Items: Egg bites, double smoked bacon, ham & cheese croissant, and Spinach Feta Wrap (if you’re trying to be a little more healthy)
  • Bakery Treat: Pass me that lemon loaf, pumpkin loaf, or that cheese danish.
My Chipotle Order

I never really went to Chipotle, but the few times I have gone I get the same thing. 

  • Burrito or Bowl? Bowl
  • White Rice or Brown Rice? White Rice 
  • Black Beans or Pinto Beans? Black Beans
  • Meat? Chicken
  • Salsa? Mild
  • Extras? Cheese, Sour Cream, lettuce
  • Avocado? If I am at Chipotle I splurge [Give me that Guac]
My McDonalds Order

McDonalds is probably my biggest guilty pleasure. When I go there is no thought of being healthy, just happy.

  • McChicken
  • McDouble BUT if i get a McDouble I need to get a McChicken to then mash them together (McGangBang)
  • Fries (#dabest)
  • Chicken Nuggies with ranch (Chicken Nuggies make the pain go away)
My In-N-Out Order

In-N-Out is tried and true. It is hands down the best and I believe many people agree.

  • Double-Double Mustard Fried.
  • Fries (Not the best but not bad)
  • Gotta ask for 3 packets of spread on the side
  • If in a spicy mood, get those peppers they have 
My Poki Bowl Order

Poki is that luxury item. Wanna be hip and cool but on a budget on a first date; Poki.

  • Base – White rice
  • Fish – Ahi Tuna, Spicy Tuna, Albacore
  • Sauce – The place has mild sauce and then put some spicy mustard in there boi
  • Toppings – Seaweed Salad, Edamame, Furikake, Cucumber, Imitation Crab, Avocado
