Bringing the measurements.  Unfortunately I forgot I've wanted  to measure also startup currents. The results look pretty interesting, I must say. Sometimes, the peak goes a bit over 300mA.

Also looks like the MCU sleeps and is periodically woken up.

The stock AT commands look good initially but when you get to the details they are hard to work with.

Correction, the ESP8266 AT commands work quit good. The trick is to disable echo ("ATE0", not documented) such that it doesn't interfere with "+IPD" RX data.
