When in San Juan, looking for good comfort food, one of the best places to check out and visit is Flossom Kitchen Cafe. With its garden-themed and homey interiors, there really is no denying why people visit this place with their barkada if they want a quick catch up with each other over a good meal.
To keep their menu fresh for those who want to always try something new whenever they visit, Flossom has recently rolled out a set of new dishes that stay true to its goal of serving modern twist on comfort food. Here are just some of the dishes you can order the next time you visit the restaurant:
The perfect starter for the cheese lover, their Baked Brie with Fig Jam (P350) is something you should definitely not miss. Served with baguette and fig jam, the soft baked brie is made even more flavorful with olive oil and thyme. They recommend for you to try everything with each other for the full experience, but if you just love cheese that much, you can definitely enjoy the baked brie as it is!
Watching your weight? Flossom serves the Shimeji Fritters (P280) which can be your next guilty pleasure if you love snacking. These are lightly fried Shimeji Mushroom, served with a marinara and a garlic aioli dip. It's an addicting snack, and the next thing you know, you'd have already finished the whole plate without even noticing.
For their pasta menu, Flossom introduced the Truffle Lechon and the Cheeseburger Bolognese. Truffle Lechon (P350) has a creamy truffle sauce, served with a slab of crispy lechon and tartufata. However, if you're more of a red sauce kind of person, there's the new Cheeseburger Bolognese (P320) which is basically spaghetti, with ground angus patty, mixed herbs, and topped with sliced cheese.
Another dish from their new menu is their Cajun Shrimp Sandwich (P380), packed with spiced crispy shrimp, celery, onions, cajun remoulade, and green lollo rosso in a brioche bun. It's also served with fresh potato chips to complete the meal.
Flossom has also recently introduced Daddy's Homemade Sisig (P300) which is as sinful as you want your sisig to be. It's made with minced pork belly, mayonnaise, chicken skin bits, finger chili, and egg. The recipe is from their chef who used to serve them his version of the Pinoy favorite, eventually making it into the restaurant's official menu.
For dessert, there's the Custard Fritters (P180), which is basically an egg custard version of the turon, sprinkled with powdered sugar and yema sauce, and served with a side of whipped cream to balance the sweetness.
