torch restaurant
Torch Restaurant has a classy and elegant interior.  It has a chiq and bright bar area, a lovely wine display and a wide open kitchen.  It is also one of the most spacious restaurants I've ever seen.  If the the indoor is not your style, you can also enjoy the well-lit al fresco area with a great landscape.

truffle fries
Truffle Fries (234.95 php)
The Truffle Fries is a bowlful of ripsy potato fries cooked in truffle oil.  It has a special peppermill dressing that's really good!  We were so mesmerized by its taste that I almost forgot to take a photo.

bacon wrapped wings
Bacon-Wrapped Wings (365.95 php)
The Bacon-Wrapped Wings is a fire-grilled chicken wings wrapped in bacon with barbecue sauce.  In terms of flavor, this was really good.  However, I am not used to eating a bloody chicken. 

peanut butter and jelly wings
Peanut Butter and Jelly Wings (345.95 php)
The Peanut Butter and Jelly Wings tasted like sweet peanut butter.  I prefer peanut butter with a nuttier taste so this didn't cut out for me.  It was something my palate was not used to.

cowboy roll
♥ Cowboy Roll (389.95 php)
The Cowboy Roll is thinly sliced Angus Beef filled with shitake mushrooms, deep fried in tempura batter and served with sesame sauce.  The rolls are of excellent quality in terms of ingredients.  The Angus Beef was so tender and it really went well with the tasty shitake mushrooms, sticky Japanese rice and the sesame sauce.  The batter and the seaweed were perfectly crunchy.

bbq chicken pizza
BBQ Chicken Pizza (295.95 php)
The BBQ Chicken Pizza is a mixture of sweet barbecue chicken cubes and caramelized onions contrasted with the salty and zesty mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese.  It was also garnished with fresh cilantro.  

gambas pizza
♥ Gambas Pizza (329.95 php)
The Gambas Pizza is a crispy thin pizza covered with mozzarella cheese topped with shrimp sauteed in chipotle garlic olive oil and chili.  It's a bit spicy just the way a gambas dish should be.  It's really incredible that a gambas would work out as a pizza.  I loved this!

philly cheese steak pizza
♥ Philly Cheese Steak Pizza (369.95 php)
The Philly Cheese Steak Pizza is another amazing oven-baked thin crust pizza covered in tangy tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese topped with thin pieces of steak and cream cheese.  

Pork & Beef
smoked chipotle tequila barbecue beef ribs
Smoked Chipotle Tequila Barbecue Beef Ribs (649.95 php)
The Smoked Chipotle Tequila Barbecue Beef Ribs is majestic 600g Angus beef ribs slowly roasted until tender with smoked chipotle tequila barbecue sauce.  It has a peppery sweet taste.

Skillet Omelettes
fresh garden omelette
♥ Fresh Garden Omelette (159.95 php)
Despite it being dinner, I'm glad we got the Fresh Garden Omelette under the breakfast menu.  The unique food presentation is quite entertaining and flame-tastic.  We were first served a tray with a hot iron skillet.  Our very nice server began spreading the butter and pouring the filling in.  After a few seconds, the chef brought out the "Torch" to finish the job.  The Fresh Garden Omelette goes well with the buns they were served with.  According to our server, the skillet omelette selections are one of the breakfast favorites of their regular clients.  He also shared that as the name indicates, they have more dishes that involves using the "Torch".

Update: Secret Affair restaurant scene was shot at Torch. =)

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Torch Restaurant is serves great fusion food and awesome drinks.  The ambiance is perfect for a hang out.  Moreover, the "Torch" dishes are worth the try!  The staffs are very nice even the front door guard is polite.  The pricing may be a bit on the high side but the serving size is great for sharing.
