The Traveling Brown Bear - Flossom Kitchen + Cafe, San Juan City

What do you do when you have some free space in your compound? Why open a restaurant of course! Flossom Kitchen & owners started this beautiful venture exactly on November 17, 2017. A year later they have garnered a following due to delicious food and the venue’s beautiful and whimsical interiors.

Also such a small world since the restaurant’s marketing manager is friend of mine, whom I met in high school. It's been awhile since I last saw here and was happy to catchup a bit after all these years. Adulting time! 😂

We love this crispy corned tortillas topped with corned beef (yaaas! So good), chili beef, caramelized onions, cheese, pico de gallo and flavorful sauces (onion cream and cilantro marinara). I like how light and crispy the nachos were and colorful it was too. We couldn’t help devour this baby.

Trash Can Nachos (Php 420)
Mushroom Truffle Risotto (Php 420 additional Php 250 for Salmon) and Truffle Lechon (Php 350) were on my top three favorite dishes that afternoon. I love creamy dishes and both satisfied my craving for it. I would certainly order it again on my next visit. Crispy lechon bits was a good addition to the pasta’s texture and taste.

Ultimate is an adjective that perfectly describes this dish. On the menu it states to feed two people but can feed up to 4 people depending on their diet/capacity  😂 It comes with smoked ham, two pancakes, bacon slices, two eggs, potato wedges, baked beans, mushrooms, baguette and grilled tomatoes. A pretty hefty breakfast indeed.

Molten Lava Burger (Php 430) I found the patty bland despite having the melted cheese on top of it. I love my burger patty flavorful and juicy, it wasn’t able to hit that spot for me. Comes with potato chips and uses brioche bun.


Daddy’s Homemade Sisig (Php 300) Creamy sisig with crispy chicken skin. I love how the texture of this favorite pulutan that turned ulam with garlic rice and egg. I love sisig that is crispy more than overly oily in terms of preparation.

Cheesburger Bolognese (Php 320) Cheesy spaghetti? I’m a huge fan of cheesy dishes and this wasn’t as overwhelming which is a plus but it was a little too sweet though.

Chorizoo Croquetta Bombs (Php 250) Hello there! Chorizo bits and mozzarella for croquetta. Crispy on the outside and soft and gooey inside. Came with aoilo sauce.

DESSERTS


Ube Champorado (Php 250) I love anything ube. I'm one of those people who enjoy eating a jar of Shepard's Ube Jam straight from the container. I was expecting it to be ube-er than it was, maybe it's just me. I love that it had salted fish flakes which balanced sweetness something salty. Topped with yema sauce and macapuno strings.

Custard Fritters (Php 180) Crispy custard egg rolls, why not? Imagine flan filled rolls topped with yema sauce and powdered sugar. I can probably eat two sticks or more if I wasn't as full from all the scrumptious dishes served that afternoon.

Also if you are looking for some flower arrangements most especially orchids they also sell it in their shop right below the restaurant.

The only issue I have was the parking. It is limited, you can park on the street but it can get full most especially during peak hours. Take a grab or cab going there to avoid the hassle or call ahead of time if there are available parking slots. I would definitely bring my family and friends at this restaurant love the ambiance and how its pleasing to the eyes. I also recommend their Risotto and Truffle Lechon.
