Tocha Bistro is the new gastropub that replaces char gril bar at Hotel Boss. The grastropub is actually located at the back of the hotel along the canal, giving diners the feel of alfresco dining alongside the river.
Mushroom Soup 3.5/5
We started with the Mushroom Soup ($5.80) which is hearty and comforting. I enjoyed the earthy flavours of the different blend of mushroom with a creamy finishing.
Spicy Mid- Wings 3/5
The Spicy Mid-Wings ($8.80 for 10pc) was deep fried to an enjoyable light crispiness on the exterior while retaining the juiciness inside. However I did not find it spicy at it. The marination did not manage to wow me.but the children seemed to be loving it.
Baked Scallop 3/5
The Baked Scallop ($8.80 for 3pc) is baked in mayonnaise and 3 different types of cheeses. I applauded the generous used of cheese and mayonnaise but I thought it was a bit heavy handed, masking the sweetness of the scallop.
Tiger Prawn with White Wine Sauce 3.8/5
The Tiger Prawn with White Wine Sauce ($13.80) which comes with 3 huge prawns tossed in slightly spicy and robust white wine sauce. It is a pity that the spaghetti was overcooked or it will would be my favourite dish for the night. On a good day, this definitely will be the star of the menu.
Grilled Salmon 3.5/5
Grilled Cod Fish 3.5/5
For the fish items, we tried both the Grilled Salmon ($15.80) and Grilled Cod Fish ($19.80). For the pricing, I thought the portion is a bit small.While I could not really fault the cooking, I was not able to find excitement in the whole execution.
Lamb Rack 2.8/5
Tenderloin Steak 3.5/5
Iberico Pork 4/5
The dish that I would come back for is their Iberico Pork ($22,80). The piece of pork is well seasoned, complementing the natural sweetness of the pork. The pork was also tender and juicy. The kitchen has given justice to the beautiful piece of pork.
Hawaiian Pizza 3.5/5
Tocha Bistro has a huge selections of their menu and it includes pizza too. The Hawaiian Pizza ($12.80) is a tomato base pizza with chicken, ham and pineapple. A classic combination that works with the crispy thin crust. dough. This is best to go with a glass of beer.
