Review: The Wildflower

Dinner tonight was at The Wildflower located at Royal Brunei Recreation Club (RBRC). I wasn’t familiar with the whereabouts of RBRC despite I had been there once before. I couldn’t find the location in the beginning and had to use Waze to navigate my way to RBRC.

The Wildflower is a fairly new cafe establishment in town. The cafe wasn’t packed at the time I walked in but it gradually filled up with more patrons later on who came for coffees after dinner. Aside from serving coffees and teas, they also serve hot food and desserts. Food menu wasn’t extensive in my opinion but sufficient.

Without further ado, let me show you what I had for dinner tonight!

Cinnamon Turmeric Latte | B$4.50

If you had been following my food entries long enough, you might probably have noticed that I am quite a fan of cinnamon flavored food, be it cakes or drinks. When I came across this particular Latte on the menu, I was instantly intrigued but hesitated as I’m not sure how turmeric would taste like in a Latte.

The barista assured me that the taste of cinnamon would definitely be stronger than the turmeric. And true enough, the taste of cinnamon was stronger. Honestly speaking, I would say that the taste of turmeric was subtle, almost non-existent in my opinion. In short, their Cinnamon Turmeric Latte was good.

Cinnamon Turmeric Latte (with Soy Milk)

This was served on the house. My first cup of Cinnamon Turmeric Latte was served with regular milk and the barista made another cup with soy milk for me to try. When serving this, she mentioned that she had substituted brown sugar with honey as they were trying out different menu to incorporate into their superfoods menu.

I personally find the soy milk had slightly overpowered the taste of cinnamon in the Latte. The taste of cinnamon was subtler with soy milk and sweeter since honey was used. However, the sweetness might be from the soy milk if it wasn’t unsweetened. All in all, I loved both.

Roasted Chicken Sandwich | B$7.00

pulled chicken, buttered leeks, red onions, grated carrots, aioli

The Roasted Chicken Sandwich was very good in my opinion. I loved the combination of the fillings in the sandwich. The portion of pulled chicken was generous as well. The sandwich was toasted on a sandwich presser before serving.

If you want non-meat option, they serve Roasted Vege Sandwich with roasted cauliflower, roasted eggplants, buttered leeks, grated carrots and aioli. I think I will be trying this out the next time I visit the cafe.
