I have to admit, I miss San Juan City’s EATS because of this EATSperience! Being a former teacher at one of the school’s around the San Juan – Mandaluyong area, I seriously miss the accessibility and variety of food that’s available in this area of Wilson and P. Guevarra. Restaurants and cafes of different cuisines, sizes, interiors, price range, and so much more. Name it, this area probably has it. In this edition of EATSplorations, I, Mr. Eats, will be featuring one of my personal favorites in San Juan City, Flossom Kitchen Cafe! Yes, I know we’ve already featured them before, but this time it’s for their new dishes. The already good line up of dishes at Flossom Kitchen Cafe, believe it or not, has gotten even better. Keep on reading as I tell you about Flossom Kitchen Cafe’s New Dishes in this same but different edition of EATSplorations, enjoy!
Great to see you again, Flossom Kitchen Cafe!
Nestled in the tiny uphill street of N. Averilla in San Juan City, Flossom Kitchen Cafe is at the forefront of the Flossom Place (an old house turned commercial establishment that houses several concepts that are all related to events). Flossom Kitchen Cafe, since its opening, has become one of the go to cafe of the people of San Juan city because of its charming ambiance and of course, it’s delectable dishes.
The famous Flossom neon light welcomed me and my friends! The place still is very lovely, thanks to the fresh flowers and greenery that can be seen and appreciated all over the restaurant. Flossom is really perfect for brunch with friends, lunch with family, and dinner with a special someone. (Take a look around Flossom Kitchen Cafe right here in our previous feature)
I hope you are not hungry while reading this EATSperience of mine because Flossom Kitchen Cafe’s New Dishes will surely make you salivate! They have new dishes from starters, mains, and dessert. Let’s EAT!
Shimeji Fritters (Php 280)
Shimeji mushrooms fried to almost like a tempura-like finish. Crispy outside, juicy inside, and very very light batter that wasn’t oily at all. I enjoyed it more because of its two fantastic dips. The Aioli and the Marinara. Each dip has its own strength but I loved the Shimeji Fritters more with the garlicky and creamy Aioli dip.
Baked Brie with Fig Jam (Php 350)
Yes to sweet and savory combos like this! I enjoyed the creamy and savory Baked Brie contrasting with the sticky and sweet Fig Jam. The combination worked really well for my taste. This one’s a really good appetizer!
Cheeseburger Bolognese (Php 320)
If you love a meaty pasta sauce, you will surely love Flossom Kitchen Cafe’s Cheeseburger Bolognese. It’s not just meaty, it’s also very cheesy!
Truffle Lechon (Php 350)
Flossom Kitchen Cafe definitely brought their “A game” on this one! Two of my weaknesses in one dish, Lechon Kawali and Creamy Truffle Pasta! Yum, yum, yum all day, everyday! Next time you visit Flossom, you seriously need to try this one.
Daddy’s Homemade Sisig (Php 300)
Pork Belly Sisig with Crispy Chicken Skin! Yes, yes, and yes! I ate lots of rice because of this fine Flossom version of the beloved sisig. I enjoyed symphony of flavors together with the chewy belly and the crunchy chicken skin. Well done, Flossom!
Ribeye Salpicao (Php 650)
Flossom Kitchen Cafe’s menu just keeps getting better! The Ribeye Salpicao was really amazing. I definitely enjoyed how tender these ribeye cubes were and how garlicky the sauce was. Once again, “Extra rice, please!”
Porchetta Italiana (Php 420)
Super tender and fragrant Roasted Pork Belly with an Extremely Crunchy Skin! Priced at only Php 420 and can definitely feed at least two hungry tummies, this one is really a must try!
Apple Pie ala Mode (Php 175)
Stewed Apples with Cinnamon in a perfectly baked pie accompanied by a scoop of Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream! I enjoyed the taste of the stewed apples but would have loved it more if the apples were cooked a bit more.
Custard Fritters (Php 180)
One of the most memorable desserts I have ever had this year! Yes, Flossom Kitchen Cafe’s Custard Fritters is that good. This one was crispy, creamy, and sweet (not too sweet which I enjoyed so much). In case you were wondering what this one is all about, imagine “turon” but instead of banana, it’s stuffed with custard/leche flan then topped off with Yema Sauce. It was such a perfect ending to a great meal at Flossom!
The new dishes on the Flossom Kitchen Cafe menu were all really really good. I enjoyed each and every one of them! But if you’d ask me about my favorites, I’d have to go with the Shimeji Fritters, Truffle Lechon, Porchetta Italiana, and Custard Fritters. If I can only pick one, I’d go for the Custard Fritters! Why? Well, I am usually not easily impressed with desserts as I am not much of a dessert person, but it was just really good. Too good for me! If you are planning to go to Flossom Kitchen Cafe soon, check out these new dishes! You surely won’t regret it. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations, ’til next time!
