Starbucks Korea Holiday Menu 2018
If there’s one thing Starbucks lovers look forward to every year, it would be the coffee chain’s holiday spread that always delights. Beyond the culture of coffee, it’s become a global tradition to gather at the table with friends and family over (red) cups of coffee and sweet pastries. It’s proven to be not just an annual event, but a very magical one.
In Korea, both Christmas and coffee are big, so expect only the best spread when you visit any of their Starbucks stores. Here are some of the holiday menu items that you can try when your visit this season:
The drinks photographed above are Lemon Ginger Chai Tea, Toffee Nut Latte, and Holiday Milk Chocolate, which is too cute to be consumed!
These Starbucks Christmas drinks are best paired with these yummy food and pastries: Sriracha Chicken Sandwich, Chocolate Festival Cake, Caramel Cake, Christmas red croissant, Christmas green Croissant, and Christmas scones.
Aren’t they so pretty?

For your bragging rights and caffeine fix, why not visit the largest Starbucks store in South Korea? Starbucks Jongro has a floor area of 1,000 meters and features a triangular ‘grand bar’, ‘coffee stage’, and seating zones that are inspired by the Chosun dynasty.
