Brunching at Wildflour Cafe + Bakery BGC

According to John Gunther, "All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast." I am not a breakfast kinda gal as brunch is what I would usually prefer but if I do eat breakfast, I go big. Hailing from a country whose citizens staple food is rice, consuming a heavy breakfast consisting of a viand paired with rice is the most usual thing you would see in a Filipino home. 




I know people all over the world has their own version of breakfasts but I seriously don’t think I could last until lunch time with only toast or a bowl of cereals and oatmeal. And being a millennial (yes, I am. I was born 2 years after the start of its year range. Ha!), I must admit, I like brunch better but unlike the rest the world, my way of brunching is sans the cocktails et. al. 

According to Wikipedia, brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning to early afternoon, generally served from 11am up to 3pm and regularly has some form of alcoholic drink (most usually champagne or a cocktail) served with it. The word is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch. Brunch originated in England in the late 19th century and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.




Being a country who loves to cook, eat, and with a generation full of young working citizens. It is no wonder brunch places have been popping around the metro so you have a lot of choices to get your fix; ranging from very affordable to upscale. One of them is WildFlour Bakery + Café.  It is restaurant and bake shop and gained popularity because of their cronuts (croissant and donut combination). WildFlour was established back in 2012 and started off as the little cafe and bakery that could in a corner of a then soon-to-rise Bonifacio Global City, and has since grown into one of the busiest and most acclaimed group of restaurants in Manila, with top-notch brunch and bistro dishes and pastries cooked and baked fresh in-house and served with utmost quality day-in and day-out. 




Beyond its delectable brunch menu and bountiful pastry assortment which have become synonymous with the brand, Wildflour has a dinner menu to die for, serving a diverse array of dishes including high quality steaks, homemade pastas and sandwiches, and boasting a large wine, beer and cocktail selection perfect for any occasion. The company is working with over 20 different local and organic farms from around the country to source the best ingredients to achieve quality dishes. 




The BGC branch of WildFlour has a nice interior and cozy ambiance. The tables though doesn’t have adequate distance between one another to have a private conversations. Since we were there at 9:00 am the place was packed and no table was left empty as when one table vacated another set of clients will occupy it. Maybe during odd hours, the place is quitter and you can chill while enjoying your food and conversation. Menu list is sumptuous and food presentation is nice. 

Here are what we had for brunch:

Fried Chicken and Waffles - soft scrambled eggs, country gravy, parmesan cheese. A classic combo that is considered soul food and is an American dish from Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. TBH, it’s not a Filipino thing because we often associate waffles as a dessert or a breakfast thing, but it’s something one must try once in their lives. The chicken was crispy and juicy. Put just a little bit of maple syrup on it and it’s something. The size of that chicken is huge too. I also love how runny and fluffy the omelette. The waffle was golden and crispy.



Ham and Ricotta Omelette - tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, arugula salad. A French omelette is always a classic and versatile breakfast favorite. This omelette is can large enough to feed two people. I like how it is one just tinged with gold on the surface and very soft and squidgy on the inside. The flavors are delicious and it has two of my favorite things in the world: cheese and ham. The ricotta gave this frittata a particularly lovely taste and texture. Surprisingly, the tomato sauce goes well with the egg and arugula making it easy, rich, and satisfying. Definitely a keeper!



Chocolate Soufflé - this is a nice way to put an exclamation to a lovely brunch. This dark chocolate soufflé has a delicious molten center and a light, springy exterior. Just pure chocolatey decadence from the inside out. I just wish it has a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and it would be superb.



Citrus Chamomile Hot Tea - a hot cup of tea is perfect to relax with and with chamomile it also provides a calming effect and relaxing scent and in itself is so pleasant. The hint of lemon really gives this tea such pleasurable taste. If you love lemon and tea you'll fall in love with this. The usual burnt aroma found in some other chamomile teas, you won't find it here. 



Agua Fresca - cucumber, lime, mint. This is a great unique blend. I went through it in a great phase and I like it so much as it reminds of my favorite Mojito cocktail minus the alcohol. This was so refreshing!

Golden Juice - pineapple, carrots, orange juice, ginger, turmeric. Help your body prevent infection or recover from a cold with this nutrient-packed juice.



If you want a low impact brunch or if you want to ball hard, you can all have it at WildFlour.  Also beyond its delectable brunch menu and bountiful pastry assortment which have become synonymous with the brand, Wildflour has a dinner menu to die for, serving a diverse array of dishes including high quality steaks, homemade pastas and sandwiches, and boasting a large wine, beer and cocktail selection perfect for any occasion.
