You can say that Sunday is my favorite day. It is usually the day when my boyfriend and I meet and try out new restaurants. Since the quarantine allows going out with some curfew, we find ourselves dining out early in the morning. That is why we are so into breakfast dates lately. (if you are from Metro Manila, let me know if you have any breakfast places recommendations down in the comments.)
Today, we finally tried this Instagram-worthy café in San Juan City: Flossom Kitchen + Café.
We were the first customers to arrive at the opening of the place. There were some safety measures implemented like taking of temperature, stepping on the foot bath, and filling out a health checklist. For extra caution against the COVID-19 virus, they also placed alcohol on every table.
The place is small but magnificently decorated with floral accents, lights, and grey walls. If you’re into Instagram, you’ll surely like this place.
And now for the best part: FOOD!
We ordered Trash Can Nachos – which I heard is one of their best-sellers.
It looks satisfyingly trashy, it’s good!! The server poured melted cheese all over the colorful nachos which made the tasty experience unique. The nachos itself was really tasty and is complemented by a generous serving of melted cheese and beef toppings.
For our salad, we got Norwegian Salad. I love the smoked salmon. It goes well with the salad.
For our mains, we got Carbonara and Angus Salisbury Steak Skillet.
The Carbonara is generously served topped by a full and creamy sauce. Nothing too special except for the pouched egg on the top.
The Angus Salisbury Skillet became one of my favorite dishes. If you like beef and meaty dishes, this one is for you. I love the thick mushroom sauce that is served with the dish. I would eat it paired with a serving of rice, but my boyfriend favored veggies on the side since he is on a diet.
Sadly, desserts were not yet available, so we ordered their Tiramisu Pancake. The pancakes are big and fluffy. I love the tiramisu flavor and cream on top. Perfectly paired with their coffee.
Overall, I recommend the Trash Can Nachos and Angus Salisbury Skillet. The other dishes are ok and all our orders are in big servings that made us full and happy! My visit here became one of the most lovely breakfast mornings, aside from Rustic Mornings. The food is great and the ambiance is pretty and chill.
We would love to come back – probably this coming Sunday.
