Sundate Lunch in Wildflour Cafe + Bakery Fort.

It's Sundate fundate again!  This time, T and I went to Bonifacio Global City.  We first thought of the newly-opened IHOP but after seeing photos of people who've been there, I had a feeling we were going to be disappointed (i.e. serving size seemed smaller than US standards).  I'm not saying we're never going to eat in IHOP but T and I were hungry and waiting in line for hours was not an option.  So we chose to go to Wildflour Cafe + Bakery instead.



Where is Wildflour Cafe + Bakery located?  It's between 26th Street and 4th Avenue.   Landmarks are Hyundai and One McKinley Place.


Kicks of the Day: Nike Air Max '97 Silver Bullet.

As you can see the place is packed despite it being located in a different area (not the usual Burgos Circle or Bonifacio High Street).  T and I were lucky not to have waited for so long considering it was lunch time.  It just so happened that I got the last vacant table.  After me, there was already a list. 




Wildflour has an outside area but it was too hot to stay there.




T and I really love the ambiance of the place. 












The table napkin looks like a simple kitchen towel.




Water is served in glass bottles instead of pitchers.




And utensils are simply placed in white metal cans.




I couldn't help but take photos of everything!  On another note, I think wedge sneakers are becoming my official Sunday shoes.  Shocking because I'm not really a sneakers kind of girl.  Here I am wearing Nike Sky High Dunks.  I want more!




After taking our orders, the server gave us warm bread.  I overheard the dad from the other table complain, "Bat ang konti naman nito miss?" ("Why is the bread so small?").  But T and I didn't ask for more because we were excited to eat and didn't want to fill our stomachs with bread.




As much as possible, I try not to drink flavored juices or sodas anymore (a vice I gave up when I promised to take on a healthier lifestyle) but Hot Lips Craft Sodas seemed really interesting.  It turns out, the drink is real fruit soda and the only ingredients are filtered sparkling water, fruit brew, and cane syrup.  Good choice then!
"HOTLIPS Soda is real fruit soda, traditionally brewed. Picked-ripe fruit is cooked in open kettles, bringing out its nuanced flavors. Seeds are filtered out (but not pulp), then water, pure cane sugar and organic lemon juice are added. Then it is carbonated, put into bottles and pasteurized. " - www.hotlipssoda.com



While waiting for the food, T and I played with my new toy (read my blog post on Fujifilm's Instax Mini).  I'm getting too trigger happy and need to buy more film.  Anyone know where I can get them?


Didn't know what T was up to until I saw this photo on his phone.  Kulit.

Because of the volume of diners, it took a while before the food came.  But everything was worth the wait!  I got the California Burger (P450/$12) with cheddar cheese and caramelized onions in a brioche bun.  Good stuff. 




I'm glad T read my mind and ordered Macaroni and Cheese (P280/$7) with Gruyere and cheddar cheeses.  Finally, my craving for good mac n' cheese was satisfied (read my blog post about 'Cue Modern Barbecue's Mac n' Cheese)!   But don't order this as your only course because the serving size is small, given the richness of its flavor.




For his main, T got Fried Chicken and Waffles (P630/$15).  This dish is definitely for sharing.  The waffle is huge and guess what's on top of it?  THREE pieces of chicken.  I was a bit full so I only took a piece of chicken and passed on the waffle.


No maple syrup yet.


But when T poured the Vermont maple syrup, I just had to try it. The waffle's so light and fluffy!  I ended up eating a part and getting more chicken from T's share.  Yikes.


With one chicken gone (because I already ate it) and maple syrup on top!

When in Bonifacio Global City, T and I usually have dessert in another place.  But since we liked Wildflour so much, we also had coffee and dessert there.  I got a regular Cappuccino (P110/$3) while T got a regular Latte (P110/$3).


My cappuccino.

T's latte.

Like I said in a previous post, T loves creme brulee.  So what did he order?  Tiramisu Creme Brulee (P180/$4.50), of course.




On the way to the washroom, I saw a pastry display by the window.  I must have missed it when I entered because there were too many people around.








The bathroom is strategically placed at the end of the restaurant, hidden from everyone.  Just look for this sign.




I was surprised to find wall art even inside the washroom.




Beside the washroom is a window that gives us a peek into Wildflour's kitchen.




And along the corridor are crates full of drinks.



It was such a nice afternoon.  T and I were really happy folks with equally happy stomachs :)

"Wildflour Cafe + Bakery is perfect for Sunday brunches and for any other day." -T 



After that, we went to Powerplant Mall in Rockwell to watch Safe Haven.  Classic Nicholas Sparks.  Perfect way to end a nice Sunday.  Can't wait til next weekend!




Thumbs Up!
Good food.
Nice ambiance.

Thumbs Down!
Nothing really.

Verdict
T and I will definitely be back!
