Have you been to this absolutely gorgeous Instagram-worthy cafe in Quezon City? There is something undeniably charming about Flossom Kitchen + Cafe. It started out in San Juan as a neighborhood cafe known for its homey vibe and chic flowery decors complemented by glorious foodporn. Here’s a look at Flossom Cafe’s new branch at SM North Edsa…
Flossom Kitchen + Cafe is located on the second floor of SM North Edsa Tower’s new wing. The cafe was a visual feast—decorated with flowers all over its pretty pastel and white interiors and with tall glass windows filled with natural light! I just loved the simple table pieces, the giant flower walls and the bespoke designs. You’ll find orchids being sold in the cafe. The name Flossom was adapted from the owners main business, Flossom Flowers, an orchid importer and distributor in the Philippines. (Orchids price: Php 1,700, Php 1,500, Php 800.) The cafe typically serves comfort food with an added twist to elevate the food experience. All of Flossom’s dishes are served with their signature garnish using edible flowers. MENU | Breakfast | Appetizer | Pasta & Sandwhich | Pizza & Plates | Dessert & Drinks | Wine BAKED BRIE WITH FIG JAM (P550) Soft Baked Brie, Olive oil, Thyme, Fig Jam, Baguette The baked brie with Fig Jam was gooey, sweet and salty, all at the same time. Perfect on the toasted bread for a sweet and savory treat. Best paired with their wine selection. TRUFFLE EGG CROISSANT (P380) Truffle Bits, Egg Salad, Fish Roe, Flaky Croissant, Bacon, Fresh Potato Chips This is probably the most “sosyal” egg sandwich I have ever eaten. A buttery flaky croissant filled with a creamy egg explosion and distinct earthiness of truffle oil. A must order for egg sandwich lovers! TRASH CAN NACHOS (P450) Crisp Corn Tortillas, Chili Beef, Corned Beef, Blended Grilled Cheese, Pico de Gallo, Caramelized Onions, Cilantro, Marinara, Onion Cream The Trash Can Nachos is a must try! A great starter to make brunch exciting, the dish starts with visually stunning melted cheese poured on top from a hot skillet! Everything tasted good—the cheese, onion cream, even the corned beef.
(Watch Video) UBE CHAMPORADO (P280) We had the ube champorado, an eye-popping rice porridge with bright purple color. The dish was infused ube, topped with macapuno, drizzled with yema sauce and salted fish flakes to balance the sweetness. Though visually stunning, the ube champorado was a simple dish overall, like how you would eat champorado at home. CRAB RISOTTO (P420) Garlic Crab, Bell Pepper, Ebiko Parmesan Cheese, Bechamel, Marina Sauce The risotto was good, rich in favor with distinct umami-rich crab meat. I loved how generous they were with the crab. I heard the mushroom risotto is good also. Good for sharing. SRIRACHA SEAFOOD TRUFFLE (P450) Shrimp Scallops, Tratufatta, Sriracha Cream Sauce, Parmesan, Onions Rigatoni The winning dish would definitely be the Sriracha Seafood Truffle pasta. It was an addicting pasta dish smothered with creamy sauce infused with truffle and tossed with juicy shrimp. Yum! CHICKEN BBQ THIN CRUST PIZZA (P420) Brown Sugar Chicken BBQ, Garlic Tomato Sauce, Caramelized Onions, Mozzarella, Bell Pepper The funny thing was the flavor of our pizza dish reminded me of CPK. Though I would prefer the crust to be much thinner. STRAWBERRY CREAM PANCAKE (P380) For something sweet order the pancakes—two fluffy pancakes topped with whipped strawberry cream, fresh strawberries, slices of almond flakes and strawberry coulis. I heard their best pancake was the Tiramisu Cream (P380), but we didn’t get to try it because they ran out of ingredients. FLOSSOM LEMONADE (P120) Color changing purple and pink lemonade! It was so cool! All the color and splendor of a galaxy in a simple drink!
