Wildflour Café + Bakery (Salcedo Village, Makati City)

When there was a rare Saturday off for my Spanish class, some of my classmates and I decided to go to Makati City to have brunch in Wildflour Café + Bakery in Salcedo Village and spend what we would have spent in class eating. Our class is between 830am to 1130am. Our brunch started at 10am and finished at 130pm. Instead of reviewing Spanish grammar (yes, you read it correctly. We are reviewing, not learning for the first time, but it is always like the first time for Spanish and me), we talked about anything under the sun from A to Z while stuffing our faces with food.

Let me say that the conversation, which covered the politics, economy, films, and the Kardashian-Jenner clan, was more stimulating than the selection of aliment that was served. Let me add that I chose Wildflour Café + Bakery as our meeting place, so I have only myself to blame for the mediocre edibles.

The place was almost full to capacity from 945am to 130pm, and the rate of turnover of people was quite fast, but despite the busyness, Wildflour Café + Bakery remained relatively quiet, as if the noise was diffused.

Thank you, to my three companions who shall remain unnamed. 🙂 You know who you are. I enjoyed spending time with you, guys!

Salmon Tartine ala Nicoise, P495.00 (US $9.90). House-cured salmon, sourdough toast, white anchovies, soft-boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, and green beans. I like salmon and I have it when it is on the menu. This one is one of my least favorite salmon dishes I have eaten this year. It looked gorgeous though.

Monte Cristo, P460.00 (US $9.20). Two slices French toast, homemade ham, bacon, and fried egg on top.

Wildflour Breakfast, P460.00 (US $9.20). Eggs, crispy potatoes, homemade breakfast sausage

Mushroom and Asparagus Omelette, P420.00 (US $8.40). Goat’s cheese, side salad

Brioche French Toast, P395.00 (US $7.90). French toast with Vermont maple syrup. I liked it. It was fluffy and not overly sweet.

Pumpkin Soup, P280.00 (US $5.60). It has coconut milk, kaffir lime, mushrooms, and cilantro. The cilantro made the balance of flavors off. It was too overpowering and my love for coconut milk and pumpkin could not make me ignore it.

Tomato Soup, P250.00 (US $5.00). It has sour cream and parmesan. Can I say that this one is way better than the pumpkin soup?

French Onion Soup, P310.00 (US $6.20). It has croutons and gruyere cheese.

Wildflour Salad, P530.00 (US $10.60). It has roast chicken, salami, fresh mozzarella, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, candied peanuts, and green goddess. This was a beautiful looking hodgepodge of edible items, which strangely did not taste strange or confusing.

Carbonara Mafaldine, P495.00 (US $9.90). It has homemade guanciale, pecorino, and fried egg. I had one bite of it, and I had enough. It was bland.

Wildflour Café + Bakery pastries (clockwise from top left portion): S’mores Cake, P145.00 (US $2.92), slice of Brioche French Toast, P395.00 (US $7.90), Choco Macaroons, P120.00 (US $2.40), Salted Egg Cheesecake, P110.00 (US $2.20), and Ube Leche Flan.

I liked everything but the ube leche flan. The S’mores cake was a sweet sweet sweet delight that was worth all the calories in it. All layers were sensational. The French toast was not so sweet and it was so light. The choco macaroon was a little dense but it was packed with shredded coconut, so it was okay. The chocolate coating was a good contrast to the denseness of the coconut filling. The salted egg cheesecake sounded weird but it was a tempered dessert. It was fluffy and the dominant flavor was the cheesecake part and only nuances of the salted egg were noticeable. The ube leche flan tasted like an unsweetened version of the leche flan. Where’s the fun in that?
