wildflour: cafe + bakery

Published August 8, 2014 by ladyemelye

i have already done a post before regarding the cronuts of wildflour.  but of course, i wanted to try out the food.

hubby and i first tried it out for lunch.  he had a meeting nearby, so we met at wildflour for lunch.  here is what we got:

tomato soup (php 90)

tomato soup (php 90)

the soup is simply made of tomatoes, basil and parmesan.  hubby loves his tomato soup, and he gets one whenever he can.  i can say that this is a good starter to warm up your tummies before your main meal.

pork chop (695)

pork chop (php 695)

hubby had the pork chop for his main meal.  it consists of porkchop (a generouse size, mind you), sweetcorn puree, wild mushrooms, whole grain mustard.  at first look, he was a little skeptical.  but the pork was tender and the sauce was really good.

crispy duck confit (php 590)

crispy duck confit (php 590)

bring me somewhere that has duck confit in their menu, and i most likely would get that.  this was served with lentils and apple slaw.  the skin of the duck was indeed very crispy.  the meat was tender that i did not have a hard time tearing it apart. 🙂 it was also very flavorful, the way duck is.  the lentils provided contrast and the apple slaw had the right amount of sweetness and sourness to break through the monotony of eating duck.

crimson berry iced tea (php 110)

i got this iced tea for my drink.  it was just a simple iced tea with berry flavors.

pastel de tres leches (php 210)

pastel de tres leches (php 210)

this was our sweet ending.  three kinds of milk mixed in with cake cubes plus caramel on top.  i like that it wasn’t overly sweet and that the cake had a nice texture to it.

we had a very good lunch that day and we were satisfied with the food that we had.

 

i work in the building across the street from wildflour.  so every morning, when hubby drops me off, we always see that there are a lot of people (especially foreigners) who were having breakfast at wildflour.  so one day, we decided to try out their breakfast menu.  do note that they are offering a different menu during breakfast.

wildflour breakfast (php 290)

wildflour breakfast (php 290)

this consists of 2 eggs (cooked the way you like it), cripsy potatoes, pork sausage and toast.  it’s like the more upscale (in terms of serving size and flavor) of mcdonald’s big breakfast. 😉  i liked the crispy potatoes with its crunch on the outside and mushiness of the potato inside.

croque madame (php 420)

croque madame (php 420)

this is a big sandwich, i wasn’t able to polish it off.  it was ham, gruyere and fried egg on top of a brioche bun.  it was delicious and very filling.  i how the flavors all melded into the bread.

hazelnut hot chocolate (php 160)

this was my morning drink for that day.  it was like eating nutella in a semi liquid form. 🙂  however, i did find it a little bit too sweet for my taste and little too thick.  maybe they could ease up on the nutella (which i am sure they put in here) given the size of the cup.

 

i enjoyed eating at wildflour both times.  although prices are a little steep, you can see that the servings are generous and the the quality and taste is of high standards.  i would love to try other items in the menu like the mac and cheese, grilled cheese sandwich and kimchi fried rice. 😀

a taste of slice

Published August 4, 2014 by ladyemelye

i’ve first heard about slice because of their cupcakes.  so when i moved to a job at bonifacio global city last year, i grabbed a box of some of these cupcakes.

box of 4 cupcakes

box of 4 cupcakes

of course i got the famous choco yema (php 60) cupcake.  beside it is the oh my ube (php 80).  the one with the green frosting is candyland.  i forgot what flavor is the one on the lower left, but the cupcake is colored pink. 🙂

the choco yema was definitely a winner.  the combination of chocolate plus the creaminess of the yema was really good.  i also like the oh my ube.  it was an ube flavored cupcake with cream cheese frosting and some coconut shreds providing some texture.  i got candyland for the little boy.

last month, hubby and i were looking for someplace at high street central wherein we could have brunch before seeing a movie.  we decided to eat at slice to check out their all day breakfast.

slice scrambled + kalemonade

slice scrambled + kalemonade

hubby got the slice scrambled (php 150).  this consists of baked scrambled 2 whole eggs with cheese.  there are 3 different variants and he chose smoked bangus + red eggs + scallion + tomato.  this was served together with a bowl of mixed brown rice.  according to him the scrambled egg was really flavorful and the meal was filling.

for his drink, he got the kalemonade (php 100) which is kamote-infused lemonade.  it does taste like your usual lemonade, however you can also taste the hint of the kamote leaves.

panini + raving raspberry

panini + raving raspberry

i ordered the pizza panini (php 150).  it was filled with cheese, pepperoni, ham and mushrooms.  the filling was very tasty and full of ingredients.  the panini was also toasted very nicely.

for the drink, i got the raving raspberry (php 100) which is your typical raspberry juice.

we were really satisfied with the food that we ate here, that we were still not feeling hungry even after the 2-hour movie.

 

if you are looking for a place that serves healthy food, but doesn’t compromise the flavor, then this restaurant should be on your list.  i will definitely be back to try out the other items in their menu, especially those for dessert. 😀
