WILDFLOUR by Chef Walter & Margarita Manzke

WILDFLOUR is a play on words that sounds like "Wild Flower" to communicate its fun indie vibe.  The use of the word "Flour" pertains to its bakery identity.

News about this new resto literally spread like wildfire throughout the Manila foodie community, and people haven't stopped raving about its food.  (See: Table for Three | Wildflour Café + Bakery)

Indeed, this is one of the most awesome restos in Bonifacio Global City that you should check out now...

I like the facade of Wildflour -- it's like walking into a SanFo or LA restaurant.

It has an open kitchen that you can literally view from the outside, enticing you to check it out.

It was primarily intended to be a bakery but the food was so good, it overshadowed the baked items.

It has an intimidating upscale appeal because of its minimalist modern ambiance.

The acoustics are a bit poor inside the resto. You can hear the conversations bouncing around, so it's not ideal to schedule a meeting here.

The chef wanted the resto to be fun rather than stiff, and to be more down-to-earth than aloof, so they put this accent piece of food cartoons.

(Tip: The best place to sit is the couch by this display.)

★ Tarte Flambes (P395 +10% service charge). Caramelized onions, smoked bacon, gruyere.

One of its signature appetizers is the tarte flambes, which resembles a square pizza with a crunchy tarte base and generous serving of gruyere cheese (instead of parmesan).

The simple toppings of caramelized onions and smoked bacon made this really delicious. :)

★ Croque Madame (P380 +10% service charge). Ham, gruyere, fried egg.

Foodies say that Wildflour offers the best experience during breakfast because of its yummy breakfast fare. The Croque Madame was simply divine!

We loved how soft and milky the bread was, and how each ingredient was carefully prepared, making lots of foodies rave about it. The serving's big, good to share and worth every peso. :)

"Banh Mi" Sliders (P295 +10% service charge). Crispy Pork, Chili, Brioche.

For the three little boys, we ordered these three little burgers that look burned and tough from the outside but were actually and yummily soft -- from the brioche buns to the mini-pork patty. These were really good! :)

The sliders came with a generous serving of french fries that Raphael absolutely loved. :)

★ Umalag Farms Beef Short Ribs (P750 +10% service charge) Served with mashed potatoes and red wine sauce.

The highlight of our meal was this very thick serving of organic Beef Short Ribs from Umalag Farms.

The meat was tender, soft, and tasty in itself. We loved the buttery-soft slices of fat that literally melted in our mouths.

★ Pastel de tres Leches (P160 +10% service charge).

For dessert, you've got to try this cocktail cake, which is a leche-flan based treat topped with milky cake and cream. I personally liked it even though it was a bit too sweet.

★ Chocolate Pot de Creme (P160 +10% service charge). Sea Salt Caramel and Peanuts.

For chocolate lovers, order this luscious serving of chocolate creme. It was quite good, just a bit salty and with a bitter aftertaste.

Here is the souvenir shot of Aidan and Raphael with the awesome chef of Wildflour.

Chef Walter Manzke is a California-based chef who started his career in Patina restaurant in 1993. He worked for Alain Ducasse, and finally in Church & State Bistro in LA.

Wildflour is his first restaurant in Manila along with his co-owners -- his wife Margarita Lorenzana Manzke and sister-in-law Ana de Ocampo. They belong to the family that owns a group of restaurants, which include Shi Lin and Basil. They plan to open Republique, their first resto in LA.
