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)

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)

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)

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. 😀

wildflour: cronuts

Published January 19, 2014 by ladyemelye

when i moved to a new job, i was thrilled to know that plenty of the restaurants that i wanted to try out was within walking distance of my new office.

one of them was wildflour cafe + bakery.  since the cronuts will be saying their goodbyes this coming end of january, i will be posting about them first.  i will do another post regarding the meal that i had here.

i’ve always wanted to taste the “cronuts” from this bakery since they were the first ones who offered this here in the philippines.  so after i got my first paycheck, i bought a box of these treats.

cronuts!

cronuts!

the flavors i got were (clockwise from the top): mixed berries, strawberry, vanilla, salted caramel, bacon and chocolate-hazelnut.

at php 120.00 per piece, these goodies are priced a little to steep for the average joe.  i do not seeing myself buying these regularly.  but the size of the cronut somewhat compensates for its price.  each piece was around 1.5 inches thick (which made it a little hard to bite it 🙂 ).  there is a cream filling in between the layers of the pastry and topped with a glaze which gives it the flavor.  the cronuts are also rolled in sugar.

of the six cronuts pictured above, i only got to taste the mixed berries, strawberry and the salted caramel.  i liked the mixed berries since it had a hint of tang in it courtesy of the berries.  my son liked the chocolate-hazelnut and hubby said that the vanilla was pretty good too.

it was a bit messy to eat as pieces and crumbs were falling all over when i tried biting into it.  so what i did as cut it in half (horizontally) so that it would fit my bite.  the only downside is that the lower part did not have any glaze in it.

my verdict: it was good and i liked some of the flavors, but it is not something that i would fight someone with for the last piece left.  maybe i will try it one more time before they bid adieu.  i just hope that as i walk past by the shop, they are available.

 

Sidenote: wildflour’s proper term for this is croissant-donut, since apparently, the term cronut is copyrighted by dominique ansel.
