Brunch at Wildflour

 Run Around Girl is giving away Yabu gift certificates! Click here for details. Ongoing until October 31, 2012 only.

Wildflour is one place that I like better for brunch, than for dinner.  They serve a mean steak with kimchi rice, a scrumptious grilled cheese sandwich, and a satisfying little nutella doughnut (ask for this to be popped in the oven for a bit before serving) that guarantee a very good start to your day.

It’s also nice to take home bread and pastries after you eat.  The nutella doughnuts go very quickly, and some of the other pastries get sold at a discount by day’s end.  If you’re in the mood for solid brunch fare, fresh baked bread and pastries, and lots of sunshine, this is the place.

Wildflour

Last week’s dinner at Wildflour with our friends Rol and Van.

John and I got stuck in traffic, and our friends were able to finish an entire order of baked escargot (P420) while waiting for us.  Just so-so, according to Rol and Van.

We started off with some of Wildflour’s famous bread.

Then shared an order of bacon and gruyere tartes flambes (P395).

This is essentially a pizza, and a really good one too!  Love the combination of caramelized onions + cheese + bacon on a crisp thin crust.

Van had the the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup and a side salad (P320).  It’s very similar in both presentation and taste to Borough’s grilled cheese and tomato soup.

John and I shared a sandwich, soup, and salad, along with an order of Umalag Farms beef short ribs (P750).

The beef was melt-in-your-mouth good and reminds me of the one the braised beef over at Beso, which I also love.

Rol had the highly recommended croque madame (P380), which was very good, but probably not something I’d be able to polish off on my own.

For dessert, we shared a sweet and satisfying peanut butter banana cream pie (P170).

And a rather sinful chocolate pot au creme (P220) topped with nuts, sea salt, and bits of caramel.

Green Moroccan mint tea (P170) to wash it all down.  John loved this.

I was so looking forward to trying Wildflour’s hazelnut doughnut, recommended by my cousin Michele, but they had run out for the day.  They had some pastries on display which were already being sold at 50% off since it ws night time, and Wildflour serves only fresh-baked bread and pastries each day.  At least I have something to go back for… doughnuts and the brunch menu.

I like Wildflour.  It’s definitely a nice place for a relaxed dinner with friends, and I can imagine coming back for a long, leisurely brunch with the girls.  Might have liked it even more if I hadn’t gone in with such high expectations due to all the hype.  Menu here.
