Spices: Wildflour

It was sort of an accident that I got to dine here. We only planned to have coffee in Toby's Estate but after seeing Wildflour which was a few steps away, we decided to give it  a try.



The resto carries a great selection of wines, they carry both old world and new world wines. From looking at their display, the wines they have are not run off the mill cheap ones yet it was still so affordable.


Vinas del Vero - Php750


Cotes de Ventoux - Php1,100

Great thing that bread and butter are complimentary. The small baguette is house baked and its one of the best I've tried in the Metro. It was crunchy outside and it had a dense moist center. As our French expats friends said, the baguette here is almost like the ones you can find in France.

We got to try a few of starters, the first of which is the Goat Cheese with Honey. I'm not a big fan of goat's cheese, I find it too gamey and too overpowering for my taste. But this one was so good, eaten with honey, the sweetness took away the gamey-ness. This practically change my view on goat's cheese. The whole dish disappeared minutes after it was placed on our table.


Goat Cheese with Honey - Php330


We ordered two baked dishes. The Cauliflower Gratin and The Chorizo Fondidio. If you like the stretchy gooey texture of cheese, you have to order any of the two or better order both. I liked the Cauliflower Gratin better because of the vegetable's crunchiness but still both were deliciously wonderful.


Cauliflower Gratin - Php160

Chorizo Fundido - Php380



We truly enjoyed the Prawn Salad. The greens and mangoes were fresh and the chunks of plump prawns were perfectly cooked, moist and juicy. I liked the play of sweetness from the mangoes and the sour flavor of the vinaigrette.


Prawn Salad - Php390



I didn't expect the pasta dishes to turn out well. The Squid Ink pasta was perfection, pasta is al dente, the sauce taste of tasty squid ink and the pieces of shellfish, squid and prawns were perfectly cooked.


Squid Ink Pasta - Php450


The Cacio E Pepe was cooked really well and it tasted how it's supposed to be. Again the pasta was al dente, the dish smells of aromatic black pepper and taste of tasty good quality Pecorino and Parmesan cheese.


Cacio e Pepe - Php450


I normally wouldn't order a burger but since our expat French friend was impressed with the breads we had, he wanted to try out the buns of the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger. The beef pattie was topped with strips of bacon and crunchy fried onion rings served with a glass of french fries. Though I'd prefer my onions caramelized the beef pattie itself was pretty good, it was juicy and it didn't have much extenders. The bread buns impressed our French friends again, it was had a slight char and it was so soft and fluffy. The fries needs improvement,  it was soggy and I felt that it was under cooked.

The flavors of the Seabass dish was nice but it needs some fine tuning. It was served on top a luscious buttery mashed potatoes and it had bits of mushroom and sun dried tomatoes. Flavor wise the fish was good, my only complaint is the skin, it didn't have any crunch at all.


Seabass - Php695


Known for the wonderful bread they bake, it was a pleasant surprise that they also serve great tasting dishes. This is one the restaurants that I would go back to again and again. Amazing bread, great tasting food, good selection of wines, casual and cozy ambiance, good service....I'm smitten.
