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. 😀

christmas 2013 family bonding

Published June 4, 2014 by ladyemelye

after christmas day, the family went to sm mall of asia for some bonding.  we decided to play bowling and then have dinner afterwards.

we arrived at the mall around 3pm, so first had our snacks at burger king.  afterwards we proceeded to the bowling center where we registered and waited for an available lane so that we could take our slot.

after for about 30 minutes or so, we were called.  went to the counter, paid for 2 games, got our shoes and then it’s game on.

it was a game of girls vs. boys.  since none of us are really bowlers, it was fun to watch our balls go nowhere.  everyone was really very excited if we are able to hit that occasional spare and the very elusive strike. 🙂

we also had some snacks of popcorn and fishballs while we were playing.

after the games, most of our joints were already aching since most of our exercises are actually limited to playing sports in our xbox 360 kinect.

despite our best efforts, it was the guys team who won our games.  it is a little disconcerting given that they had two children in their team. 😦

after going around the mall a bit, we went to have dinner at xin wang hong kong cafe.  here are some pictures of what we ordered. 🙂

we were satisfied eating at xin wang.  they have a great selection of hk fusion food, the prices are very affordable, plus the servings are generous.  service is just ok as there were times when we had to call again the attention of the staff for something that we requestd like service water.  but we would definitely back as the we got the value for money.

after dinner, everyone was already beat and ready to go home.  it was an enjoyable post-christmas family bonding. 😀

birthday lunch with the family: burgoo

Published April 29, 2014 by ladyemelye

for 2013, i treated the family to lunch at burgoo.  i liked dining at burgoo since they have good portions, plenty of food choices, plus the fact that my son is able to unleash his creativity at their tables.

i really like the southern flavor of the food served at burgoo.  the ribs were very soft and falls of the bone, plus it has a sweet smoky barbecue flavor to it.  The shrimps were a little bit crunchy.  This platter was served with two sides and we chose the mashed potato and rice.

of course, just like what the others store have, since i was doing the post-birthday celebration, the staff came out with a complimentary scoop of ice cream plus a song number.

build your own pizza at project pie

Published March 13, 2014 by ladyemelye

one of the food fad these days is how they let the customers customize the food however which way they want it.  project pie is an artisan-inspired create-your-own-pizza place.  several branches have already sprouted around the metro and i was very eager to try it out.  finally, hubby and i were able to go to the alabang branch.

design. build. eat.

design. build. eat.

we went on an “off-hour” so the long queue of people was not there.  plus we had the luxury of choosing where we wanted to sit.  we chose a couch by the window on the second floor.

so how do you order?  line up and decide whether your having their signature pizzas (php 245.00) or build your own (php 285.00).  they have 7 signature pizzas, both red (wit tomato sauce) and white (olive oil based).  if you choose to build your own, you will be then asked for your toppings as you go through the line, and then your pizza will be put in the oven.  when your pizza is done, you will then be called so that you can claim it.

available pizza toppings: mozzarella, feta, gorgonzola, ricotta, parmesan, pepperoni, italian sausage, crumble meatballs, bacon, grilled chicken, canadian bacon, prosciutto, anchovies, red onions, green bell peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, caramelized onions, fresh mushrooms, garlic, rosemary, pineapple, artichokes, fresh chopped basil, black olives, pesto, bbq sauce.

since we wanted the “full experience” we went ahead and decided to build our own pizza.  we went for a white pizza.

our pizza plate?

our pizza plate?

cheese!

cheese!

the dough starts out as a ball, then a machine flattens and shapes it.  then sauce, or in our case, oil is put on top of it.  you will then be asked what cheeses you want.  i chose mozzarella and gorgonzola.

meats

next stop is the meat.  you can choose from a variety of meats they have.  we chose grilled chicken, prosciutto and bacon.  i would have wanted anchovies, but that would make our pizza too salty.  maybe next time. 😉

veggies

and then we added fresh mushrooms and caramelized onions to balance the flavors.  i also requested for fresh chopped basil.  then in goes our pizza to the oven!

our finished product

i loved the flavors of our pizza (of course, i created it! :P) the sweetness of the caramelized onion balanced the saltiness of the meats and the gorgonzola.  plus a hint of freshness care of the basil.

we also ordered a classic caesar salad (php 165.00) to go with our meal.  the salad had romaine, parmesan, croutons and caesar dressing served on the side.  i super like the croutons since they are cheese flavored, it’s like eating cheese curls. 😉  i got water while hubby got the soda.

there are a couple other salad you can order, and also dessert pizzas – banana nutella (php 145.00), peanut butter nutella (php 145.00), strawberry mango nutella (php 195.00), cinnamon sugar with icing (php 145.00) – which i plan on checking out next time.

overall, i enjoyed eating at project pie.  we shared one pizza and a salad for lunch since we were still a little full from earlier, but i think one person can finish one pizza.  it was a nice experience and it’s likely that we will visit again to try out other pizza flavors.
