Weekends are super crazy with mommy duties & chauffeuring the kids around, but that won’t stop me from having a great lunch with the foodie fambam!
After a harried morning of dropping off & picking up kids one after the other, Kap & I, with the 2 girls in tow, rushed to Greenbelt a couple of Saturdays ago for our much anticipated lunch at the newly opened, super “IN”, TORCH RESTAURANT in Greenbelt.
The plan was for the kids to get a separate table, but very charming & amiable owner MIKE CHUA spotted them instantly & insisted we all sit together. Thank you Mike! <3 All the tables were filled to capacity so I am a very grateful mom of 2 very hungry girls. You are my hero!
With BEA ACOSTA, pretty editor of CLICK THE CITY, and Torch Restaurant partner MIKE CHUA. <3 And I am their mother, Gah!
Dragon Sangria 900 php/bowl good for 3-5. So refreshingly fruity with chunks of dragon fruit, strawberries, pomelo & other seasonal fruits. Make sure to ask for plenty of ice on your glass.
Oh so yummy. <3 And I have to recommend this Snowflake Coco-Lychee Martini Slush 190 php. So light & delicious. You simply MUST.
My shy girls. We don’t make it a habit of coming beyond the +1 unwritten rule unless it’s my event & my hosts specifically include them. So they weren’t very comfy sitting there, lels. Most of the time when they come along, I get them a separate table & they pay for their food. Just laying it out here, so there’s no confusion. ;) Nevertheless, I love having them with me. Always. <3 CHEERS!
The happy bunch! ;)
Wakame Salmon 235 php. Fresh seaweed, ripe mangoes, kani, and raw salmon in a spicy sesame mango dressing. SUPER LOVED THIS! <3
Grilled Chicken Quinoa Salad 350 php. Quinoa grains with grilled chicken, onions, bell pepper, and feta cheese, tossed in sesame dressing. The girls were ecstatic upon finding out TORCH RESTAURANT had healthy meals as well! They went wild with this Quinoa salad. To be honest, I think everyone passed down this particular healthy dish to the girls haha!
Cowboy Roll 390 php. Thinly sliced U.S. Angus Beef filled with shiitake mushrooms, deep-fried in tempura batter and served with sesame sauce. Can I just point out? Look at those happy face wasabi! You can’t help but be happy at Torch!
Because Richie got a waaaay better shot of this. (And mostly because I got there late & totally missed this hehe) Appetizer Sampler 495 php. Buffalo Asian Wings (4 pcs.), Chili Cheese Crispers (3 pcs.), Chicken Skin (3 pcs.), Truffle Fries.
Tocino Fingers 173 php. Golden fry battered pork tocino strips, served with egg and buttered garlic rice.
Uncle’s 5-Cheese Pizza 320 php. Mozzarella, cheddar, Parmesan, Fontina and ricotta cheese, topped with fresh basil strips. The crispy crust is one for the books. You must order at least 1 pizza variety when you dine at Torch Restaurant.
Bacon and Egg Carbonara Pasta 335 php. Cream-based classic carbonara in fettuccine, topped with poached egg and bacon bits.
Vongole Pasta Garlic Olive Oil 325 php. Mildly spiced sauteed baby clams in garlic olive oil.
