Weekend Food Tripping at: Torch Restaurant

Happy Sunday!  By the time you're reading this, I'm probably on my way checking-out from our short overnight stay at Crown Regency Hotel, Makati!  It was a quick bonding with my family as my brother was back for a short break for Chinese New Years!

Happy Year of the Dragon!  

This post is actually a food tripping post me and my friends have done over a weeknight!  My Ghetto Girls --- Bea and Shanna and myself have decided to celebrate Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year or even post Valentine's Day *lol* on a relaxed night (meaning: Not much traffic).  It was a wonderful idea as the drive was easy and we arrived Torch quite early and we got good seats! :)

Truffle Fries
Php234.95 (approx $5.50)
Crispy potato fries tossed in truffle oil and 
served with our very own Peppermill dressing.  Their best seller!
Potatoes served are sliced thickly yet, very crispy on the outside and the fragrant truffle oil gives a unique taste to the french fries eating experience!  Though pricey at first glance, this is worth to try.

Vongole Pasta
Php324.95 (approx $7.60)
Mildy spiced sauteed baby clams in garlic olive oil
Though allergic to seafood, I gave this a huge bite minus the clams and thought to myself how it's worth the allergic reactions I had 10 minutes after!  Noodles were served "al dente" and the tomato based sauce was just right, not overwhelming at all!  All the spices played inside your mouth as you bit on the crunchy garlic bread!

Philly Cheese Steak Pizza
Php369.95 (approx $8.60)
Classic Philly cheese steak sandwich filling on a fresh, 
oven-baked thin crust topped with mozzarella and cream cheese
Very inexpensive considering we weren't able to finish this up and the 3 of us were full!  The different cheeses served with good servings of Philly Cheese Steak bits bursts into the mouth like a "bomb".  The best part was the sides, very crunchy thin-crusted pizza that's obviously made fresh upon order!  Sinfully good!  So good I actually ordered another one for to go!

Our drink for the night!

Our desert!
Sorry I didn't get to remember the name as we were busy catching up!  All I know was that the white thing in the middle isn't vanilla ice cream!  It must be home made cream or something then the round thing on the side are cute pancake balls! :)

 Our crazy fun shot! 
Miss you girls!
Service was impeccable, the server was very attentive to our needs and food was quick!  The place was jam packed but we felt comfortable and it was a wonderful time to really bond and catch up!
