Pizza was not hot and there was a strand of hair on it. It wasn't replaced as a whole, only the part that was seen with hair was replaced. We don't want to ruin our anniversary celebration so we just let it pass. The staff weren't so nice.

Looking for your next date place?

Torch might just be the perfect restaurant for you.

They serve International and asian fusion cuisine.

My favorite would be their US Angus Tenderloin Salpicao Medallion, which is Angus Beef wrapped in bacon and served on a heated stone plate. Best to order this medium as it continues to cook after serving. It's also good for sharing.

Next would be the Volcano Roll. I don't eat raw food so this sushi roll is perfect. It's made of tempura, cucumber and tamago then topped with mozzarella.

Was able to try the Jabanero Baby Back Ribs, Truffle fries amd Cheesy Mashed Potato, these dishes were just okay.

Food tasted amazing! We ordered the Cream Cheese Salmon Roll, Cheesy Anchovies Afredo Pizza and Salpicao Medallion!

They all tasted great! Especially the pizza which was so cheesy and flavorful! The Salpicao Medallion was also big enough for 2 persons! A++ for the presentation! Food's a bit pricey though! But overall, a great dining experience!

Finally tried TORCH in UPTC last May 20.

While waiting for my daughter at UPTC , hubby arrived and we decided to have dinner at Torch while waiting for our daughter. There was an event that night and there was a lot of people in UPTC that night. There was a band playing for that night and Torch was just beside it, nice view.

Torch was almost full and glad we got two seats. I got the beefshort plate. Tender beef served with vegetables and rice, the beef was tender and delish while hubby ordered one of their best seller Burger Mac and Cheese! Cast Iron Mac and Cheese served with US Angus Beef Patty! For only 334.95. Very heavy on the stomach and price was a good deal.

Saw that most of who find that night got pizza, will surely want to try it next time, service is okay

I can never get tired eating at this place. They have lots of food to offer and all so yummy :) this is one of their specialty Salpicao with garlic rice or mashed potato. It can be for sharing or if you have a big appetite good for your tummy only. I seldom eat beef but this one I like and love because they cooked it just right medium-well not too hard or too soft :) perfect with beer 127867

For die hard foodie, holy week include observance of fasting (red meat) for catholics , especially on friday, so when most restaurants are up its usually meat that are much sought after. So after a strenuous jog at up with few jogging buddies, we decided to hit up town center afterwards.

This restaurant is not really my first choice since i already tried their branch at circuit makati and i was looking to try something new at up town center. But since im not just by myself, majority decision wins.

So we ordered the ff:
1. Volcano Roll P375 - Freshly baked sushi rolled with tempura, tamago, japanese cucumber, and spice baked melted mozzarella cheese. This one is surely for the cheese lovers, i cant barely taste anything else other than the spice mozzarella cheese. And you could actually eat this without the wasabi since its already baked. The wasabi here doesnt have smiley face unlike their other branch and the tempura only contains just 1/4 at the end of tail.

2. Torch Signature Roll P400 - Sushi with soft shell crab, ebi, unagi, tamago, cucumber, seaweed, kani and mango. Sounds alot right? but its just okay. I personally find this one hard to consume since it has alot of 'soft shell crab' and its a bit crunchy, maybe some would like it but i personally dont. :(

3. US Angus Beef Salpicao Medallion - P580 I already tried this one at their circuit branch and this one never fails to satisfy when im craving for a steak. I personally don't recommend cooking this above medium. Either keep it at medium or medium rare. It comes with veggies and mashed potato.

4. Margherita Pizza P325 - Classic margherita pizza topped with thick slice of tomato and mozzarella cheese. This one is actually good since its a plain classic margherita pizza.

Overall, this restaurant offers lots of varieties in its menu at a not too expensive price.

This is my nth review for Torch and for a good reason– Torch is the best!!! 128523 Hahaha this review is for their Prosciutto and Arugula pizza. We were looking for a place to eat something light and ended up being really full. The pizza has an alfredo base (awesome with chili flakes, btw), balsamic vinegar, rocket arugula and prosciutto. The balsamic-arugula-prosciutto combination is similar to my favorite pizza of all time from Puccini, and the fact that it costs less and is more accessible is just a bonus. We ended up finishing the whole pizza (we were just two people). PS: Don't order their pink lemonade. Needed to dilute it with so much water.

Almost all of the restaurants in UPTC were full during the time we went there. Most of it had super long lines and one restaurant had about 30 wait listers (seriously?! 128561) when I asked them. So we decided to just search for a great restaurant that had short lines. And we found Torch! We were sixth on the line and while we were waiting for what felt like 5minutes they already called us. Good thing there was an available table for the four of us, and I did not have to wait that much because I was already starving that time.

So for my dinner I had the Beef Belly Short Plate which was served with buttered mixed veggies and garlic parsley rice. I really really loved how it tasted. The beef was rich in flavor and the meat was so tender. I was not able to order a dessert anymore because I was too full. Too bad for me though because I always have dessert after having my meal 128517 They give large servings on the Beef Belly plus the garlic rice was too heavy. But I was really satisfied!!

My boyfriend and our sisters ordered a pasta. They had Bacon and Egg Carbonara and Blackened Chicken Alfredo Pasta. Well, I was not able to taste it, too because I was too busy savoring my own meal but it seemed that they were satisfied, as well. We all went home with happy tummies 128524

For the service, it was good. They are quick, attentive and approachable. The place is quite small for the number of their customers.

Really love this restaurant. We were lucky tonight we just waited 10 minutes before we got a table. At first, we were outside but luckily they transferred us inside. The place was jam packed. Super busy staffs catering the needs of the customers. For our salad, we had soft-shell crab salad, it was really good, crab was very delicious and tasty. We had Philly cheese steak pizza which was also good. For the Chinese cuisine we ordered volcano roll it was sushi with a twist (hint: top with melted cheese) and it was good taste. Also, we had bacon and egg carbonara, I thought it was weird because you need to mix the sunny side up egg in pasta which ended up it made the pasta better and the thing is, bacon was really big. Lastly, we had country fried steak the serving was big. Since I was full from other orders, I didn't have the guts to taste this one anymore. Staffs were accommodating and attentive. Place is nice. If you want to eat (somehow) all in cuisine in one resto better go here you will leave the place full and satisfied. Will be back here 128077

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza for the win! 127829128077128523

A stressful day in the morning and then i got a call from a friend who invited me for dinner and to have some serious talk. Having a hard time thinking for a good resto at UP town, when we finally decided to dine in at Torch. For some reasons, i've been too fanatic with Philly Cheesesteak so we ordered it. Heya! to the mozarella and cream cheese 128079128079. I'm really excited to take a bite when the pizza is served in our table. It was superb! 128077. Then the next, Bacon Roll. Aside from craving for sushi that time, i got hooked because it comes with bacon, yes! heavenly BACON 128525128525. Bacon, cheese and cucumber are really good combination for sushi 127843128074 but a bit pricey.

Servers are nice and accomodating. You can feel that they are attentive to customers needs.

Happy us, happy tummy and worth it for a stressful day 128513128513
