Wildflour Café + Bakery at the Bonifacio Global City

TheMommist
My husband and I were looking for a place to dine at the Bonifacio Global City last Saturday night. We're not big on planning. We don't have a fixed idea as to where we would eat before we leave the house. We just usually follow where our growling bellies takes us. That night, it pulled us to the direction of a place called Wildflour Café + Bakery.


The restaurant is right on the corner of the Net Lima Building. Wildflour Café + Bakery has an all glass façade that looks out to the busy street. It has a stylish ambiance for a casual dining type of restaurant. 
Wildflour Café + Bakery is owned by Chef Walter Manzke and his wife, Margarita {pastry chef}. Chef Walter previously worked at one of the most influential restaurant's {closed down in 2011} of all time: Ferran Adrià's elBulli. He also had a stint at the 3-star gastronomic restaurant, Le Louis XV by Alain Ducasse and at LA's Church & State Bistro

It was a busy night at the restaurant-cum-bakery. We didn't have a reservation, so we got seated after about 15 minutes or so. We lucked out on scoring a spot inside and instead, got a nice table outside. Thank God it was a cool night!


Since my husband and I were both Wildflour Café + Bakery virgins, we asked our server for recommendations. She gave us about six choices for the mains. We finally decided on the Croque Madame and the Red Snapper.  

Complimentary slices of baguette were served right after we were done ordering. It features a deliciously crunchy exterior and a soft, chewy interior. We loved the creamy, smooth butter it came with!

Not to brag, but, I can do a mean Croque Monsieur on days when I've had, at the very least, ten hours of sleep. I'm fonder of that version of the French sandwich. My husband, on the other hand, prefers it with an egg on top.

The Croque Madame was originally all his for the taking, but he was kind enough to share it with me.  Forced is a better word, I think. Wildflour Café + Bakery's version is good. It was a marriage of satisfactory taste and texture. The sliced soft ham was sandwiched between thick brioche slices and topped with deliciously creamy bechamel sauceGruyère, perfectly fried egg {runny yolk and without the crispy edges}, and some chopped chives.

Red Snapper Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

I had a pretty heavy calorie-packed snack that day, so I decided to have a light dinner. The Red Snapper is my kind of light! I was able to taste the freshness out of the pan-fried fish. It was soft and juicy. I wish I could say the same thing about the shrimps. The dish was delicious; but, for a tiny chunk of red snapper plus two medium-sized shrimps, it was quite expensive.

Salted Chocolate Cake Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

As a fitting end to our meal, we shared a slice of Wildflour Café + Bakery's Salted Chocolate Cake. The slice is big enough for two actually. My husband, a chocolate fiend, found the cake to be highly indulgent. I also thought that it was quite good, but lacked some moisture.

This restaurant deserves a second visit. We wanted to order a Tarte flambée - specifically, the Caramelized Onions, Blue Cheese, Mushrooms, Wild Arugula - because the people next to us looked like they were really having a grand time with theirs. We're going back for that one with our boys!
