Wildflour Cafe & Bakery

Wildflour Café & Bakery is a restaurant and bakery in the Makati area. The restaurant sits a large open space.  There is a bakery counter in the front with tables spread throughout the restaurant. The restaurant has a hipster feel to it, and the crowd reflects it. Wildflour tends to appeal to a younger crowd.

The bakery is mostly French influenced, but there are Filipino touches throughout. Ube and taro have a fairly big presence in their offerings. There is also a small selection of gluten free desserts.

Queso Fundido

The Queso Fundido is a rather large portion of chorizo and cheese, topped with a fried egg and rocket (arugula). It was served with a small crusty French loaf. The chorizo/cheese concoction was way too sweet. It tasted like it was made with a lot of sugar.

French Fries

The Fried Chicken Sandwich was a large breaded piece of chicken topped with cabbage and peppers. The bread was soft, and the chicken was crisp. The chicken had absolutely no flavor though. It was severely lacking in salt. The accompanying fries were crisp and well-seasoned however.

Pain au Chocolat

The Pain au Chocolat was light, flaky and buttery. There were two thin veins of chocolate running throughout the croissant.

Mango Streusel

The Mango Streusel had a nice sweet, streusel topping. The mango was not too sweet. The pastry was just okay. This did not dazzle the tastebuds, and I would rather try other items.

Wildflour is a very popular place among the hipster crowd, and I can sort of see why. The décor is modern, and the food is on the trendier side.
