We Love Torch Restaurant - The Soapbox Filipina
My brother Vito and his wife Mae took us to lunch, in Torch Restaurant at Trinoma Mall.
Torch Restaurant is a fusion of international cooking. The dishes served at the restaurant is blended cuisine —a bit of everything delicious from different places.
Our family’s dining experience was nothing short of divine.
The food was heavenly!
Here I am, enjoying an interesting conversation with my younger siblings -as good food abound.
That is my sister, the lawyer, my two brothers, the engineers, me, the mommy blogger and my niece, the foodie-baby.

The Ang Sens ♥♥♥ Torch Restaurant
Here are what we had there:
Soft-Shell Crab Salad
The salad is a mishmash of leafy greens ( lettuce with beautiful alfalfa sprouts set on top) .
It is mixed with small pieces of fruits (ripe mangoes and black grapes).
It is topped with crispy battered soft-shell crab and served with berries vinaigrette and Torch’s special dressing.
(this was my favorite, I could finish this all)
Napa Valley Salad
The salad is a base of fresh romaine lettuce, shredded and garnished with pine kernels.
While chunks of watermelon, slices of ripe mangoes and cubes of chicken breast made the salad, all delish.
Battered chicken tenders fried to crispness and served with homemade potato chips.
It also comes with a homemade honey mustard dip.
Crusty pizza covered with melted mozzarella cheese topped with shrimps sautéed in chipotle garlic olive oil.
( Need say more? The picture will tell you why this was a favorite of mine, too!)
Philly Cheesesteak Pizza
It is frizzled beef, onions and melted cheese on top of the pizza!
A classic take on the Philly cheesesteak sandwich filling –of melted mozzarella and cream cheese -on top of a fresh, oven-baked thin crust pizza.
Buffalo Asian Wings
A piquant dish of chicken wings.
Spicy buffalo wings specially marinated and served with Mandarin and Oriental Asian sauces.
Volcano Sushi Roll
Volcano sushi roll is fresh tempura, tamago and Japanese cucumber.
It is the spice-baked melted mozzarella on top which makes this sushi roll flavorful and all ready to explode on your mouth.
Salpicao Medallion with Mashed Potato
Cubed U.S. Angus beef tenderloin -closely resembling the Filipino beef salpicao recipe.
It is served on hot marble so you can have it as it is, medium-done. ( or wait for it to cook some more, like I did )
It is sided with mashed potatoes.
Our big family, my husband, my son, my sisters, my brothers and their wives, and my nieces ♥♥♥ the food!
