The menu boasted food which are tempting, but the there's nothing really extraordinary about the specialties they offer. The place is so small and could get packed during dinner.

The staff are nice but they tend to be so attentive that they'd watch your every move.

I would come back but only if I have tried all the other restos at UP Town Center.

One of my to-go restaurants in UP Town Center is Torch. Had dinner with my best friend here last Monday.

My favorite is the soft shell crab salad which we always order. It’s basically breaded crab served with mangoes, greens, grapes, topped with alfalfa sprouts. There is two dressing on it, one sweet and one mayonnaise-y. There are different textures to the food and a lot of layers of flavors in it.

We had the shrimp pizza with it. The thin crust pizza was generously served with shrimp and cheese. We asked for chili flakes and it was the bomb! Really good. (But then again, how can you go wrong with shrimp and cheese right? Hehe)

My only issue with this restaurant is its very diverse menu. There’s so many choice from different types of dishes, medyo nakakahilo hehe.
Otherwise, good food!

Must try: *inhale* US Angus Tenderloin Salpicao Medallion. *exhale*

Amouthful of words to order.. but it's sooo worth it! Serving size at less than PHP600 is already good for 2. Served medium rare (the way I love it!) on top of a hot stone, those who are not so keen on eating bloody meat, have an option to brown the meat before eating. Served with a choice of mashed potatoes or rice with some slivers of veggies and well seasoned gravy on the side..this is carnivorously perfect!!!

128077🏻 Truffle fries, oh so good! Priced a little too steep for the serving size.

128077🏻 Volcano roll. Tastes as good as it looks!

Be prepared to smell like a sizzling plate though. The place needs better exhaust.

Philly Cheese Steak pizza (374.95Php) not a fan of thin crust pizza but the toppings made a difference
Torch Signature Roll (399.95Php)
Volcano Roll (374.95Php)
Blackened Chicken Alfredo (284.95Php)

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.
