I realized that I’ve been working quite hard for the past year.
Despite the convenience of working from home, I’ve been attending lots of meetings, preparing reports, overseeing projects and so on.
With all the job-related stresses I go through each day, it’s only right to treat myself to something posh and delicious, right?
Well, treat myself, I did, at two different occasions at Wildflour Cafe in Uptown, BGC.
Wildflour has been a popular brunch and bistro cafe since 2012, known for its creative menu that incorporates influences from the world’s best cuisines and makes use of ingredients sourced the best organic and local markets.
Its branches also have their own in-house bakery that supplies them with a wide assortment of freshly baked and premium-quality breads, pastries and cakes.
Saturday lunch with my daughter
On a Saturday after a particularly busy workweek for me (and during my daughter #ExhibitA’s lunchbreak from her work which, as luck would have it, sometimes requires her to work on weekends, we decided to have our midday repast at the Wildflour Cafe branch in Uptown, BGC.
During our lunch break escapade, #ExhibitA and I indulged ourselves with Wildflour’s continental dishes such as:
Beef Bourguignon (Php995).
Tender, chunk of beef slowly stewed in red wine sauce with mushrooms and served on a bed of pureed pumpkin.
Goat Cheese Ravioli (Php565).
Ravioli filled with buttery and tart goat cheese tossed in a tomato-sauce infused with basil harvested from Wildflour’s own garden.
Tres Leches (Php320).
Chiffon cake doused in dulce de leche and vanilla kappa and topped with fresh berries.
Partner these culinary creations with Wildflour’s relaxing and rustic old-world ambiance as well as its gracious and hospitable service, then you have a truly world-class dining experience.
Sunday brunch with former co-workers
A few weeks later, I met up with my former officemates to catch up and reminisce over brunch at the al fresco area of this same cafe.
Here, we broke our fast with breakfast bowls such as:
Beef Tapa (Php595).
Tender strips of pan-fried marinated beef on top of garlic fried rice and served with fried eggs and atchara.
Adobo Fried Rice (Php630).
Pork belly braised in garlic, vinegar and soy sauce served with fried egg and pickled chilis on Dalisay rice.
Bacon Fried Rice (Php625).
Thick slabs of bacon steak served with fried egg on top of fried rice.
Now, not all of us enjoy rice for our first meal of the day so some went to sandwiches and pastries from Wildflour’s bakery, which include:
Salmon Avocado Toast (Php595).
Slivers of smoked salmon and mashed avocado topped with cucumber slices, tomato, olives and dill on butter toasted bread.
Corned Beef Hand Pie (Php135).
A flaky turnover pastry filled with savory corned beef.
Hazelnut Cronut (Php170).
The variant of Wildflour’s flaky croissant-donut hybrid topped with dark chocolate swirl and chopped hazelnuts.
And what would brunch be without drinks?
Caffeine freaks went for handmade hot coffee variants while I cooled down with an Avocado milkshake.
Whether indoors or al fresco, Wildflour Cafe does fit the bill for up-leveled dining. And what better way to reward myself than to splurge on world-class eats, right?
