One of the reasons I love going back to visit Manila is getting to try all the new restaurants that have opened since I was last there. I heard a lot about Wildflour so I dragged my parents there for lunch. I didn't feel like bringing my big camera with me so these are all Instagram photos.
This was the Wildflour donut that was supposed to come with hazelnut hot chocolate. There was definitely no hot chocolate included with the dish, but somehow I didn't realize it till now, so I wasn't able to complain.

I think there was a bit of confusion when I ordered this sandwich. That day they had a bacon and egg sandwich on the menu board, as well as a breakfast sandwich on the printed menu. The descriptions were similar with minor differences. I ordered the sandwich on the printed menu but asked that the chutney be switched to mango from pineapple and that the egg be chili friend. I received almost exactly what I ordered except my egg wasn't chili fried. Oh, well, they tried. I didn't mind so much because oh my god the sandwich was sooo good! It was the perfect size for me (don't you just hate sandwiches that are so big ingredients fall out when you try to bring it to your mouth for a bite?) and I wanted to keep eating even after it was gone.

Ah, dessert. Usually the best part of a meal for me, but not this time. After enjoying the savories so much, this was a big letdown. The best tres leches I've had was in a little place in Puerto Rico, and I've been trying to recapture that taste ever since. This one was a bit bland.

Since I was so impressed by the quality of the food, I asked my friend Daphne to join me for breakfast one morning before I had to leave. I'm usually not a morning person, so it says a lot about the food that I woke up early for it!

When I go back to Manila, despite the slight service hiccups, I am definitely going back to Wildflour. there are still so many dishes to try!
