Torch is a fusion restaurant located at Connecticut, Greenhills. Torch is very noticeable from the outside since it’s the first among many restaurants to the right, when you come from EDSA.
Torch Restaurant has a very inviting facade. A simple yet pleasing-to-the-eye from the exterior to the interior of the resto.
The interior is well lit, making that impression of a calm, soothing place.
The kitchen is visible for customers to see. This is a good pose for the restaurant especially for customers who always look at how their food are being prepared.
Pardon me if I have to put this ahead, but even the comfort room was clean and simply trendy. Though, at that time, I got locked inside since the doorknob malfunctioned of some sort. But the restaurant crew was very quick to act and I was out in no time. 🙂
Crispy potato fries tossed in truffle oil and served with Torch’s very own pepper mill dressing. Bestseller. They also have other ranch version of dip where they put more red pepper and green pepper that makes the dip tastier.
I wasn’t able to confirm with the chef, but I think what they used on the fries is lard.
Classic Philly cheese steak sandwich with a freshly baked thin crust topped with mozzarella and cream cheese. This is one of the three dishes that I liked in Torch Restaurant. The thin crust of the pizza was right enough to give way for the flavor and taste of the combination of the ingredients.
Barbecue chicken slices, caramelized onion, mozzarella cheese and cheddar gaarnished with fresh cilantro. This is the other dish I liked. The unique blend of the barbecue chicken to tasty flavor for the pizza.
Shrimp sauteed in chiputle garlic olive oil served on top of crispy pizza covered with mozzarella cheese. This one is pretty unique. The distinct and dominating taste of shrimp makes this pizza a MUST-try.
Thinly sliced U.S. Angus beef filled with shitake mushrooms. Deep fried tempura batter and served with sesame sauce. Another unique dish that deserves your time and money. This cowboy roll has a very unique taste that I find good for my tongue. Especially with the dip that goes along with it.
Coal grilled chicken wings with peanut butter jelly sauce. I find the taste of this one, ODD. I don’t know of any more appropriate word to use. It’s good to try it, but I prefer not to eat it by choice. It’s not that it is not good, but it is just not for my taste buds. There’s something on the taste that seems “bland”.
Fire grilled chicken wings wrapped in bacon with barbecue sauce.
Sauteed green and red bell peppers, onions, button mushroom and tomatoes, topped with melted cheddar cheese. For entertainment and fun (and of course, tummy filler) then, this one is a MUST-try, since YOU, as customer, has the option to cook the fresh garden omelette right on your table. A good come-on.
660g certified Angus beef ribs roasted until tender with smoked chipotle tequila barbecue sauce served with fries, coleslaw and toasted buns.
This is the most expensive dish that I was able to try at Torch Restaurant. It is a great one indeed. Pretty worth it for the cost. Though there were parts of the barbecue that are not that juicy – and felt dry on tongue. Though that instance might be an isolated case, since the juiciness of the outer layer and delightful saucy taste was great.
Torch Restaurant offers a fast service to customers. The crew are very tidy and one can notice this from a far. The courtesy of the waiters are commendable.
OVERALL, Torch Restaurant is a place to hangout with friends, family and even a date. You won’t be dismayed of the service and taste of food.
