Tocha Bistro is one of the many F&B dinning option within Hotel Boss. They have taken over Char Grill in case you didn’t realise. Among other options are the famous Founder Bak Kut Teh, Gills and Shells, and many others.
Offering both indoor and outdoor dinning option by the Kallang River, providing a chillax environment. What’s more, there is a Crazy Hour (5pm to 6pm) for Beer with about a dozen selection and 5 House Pour. If you are not in time for the Crazy Hour, next up is the Happy Hour (6pm to 9pm).
With beer, it is best with some bar snacks. A handful of selection with the Tocha Special Top Shell ($9.80) in Thai style and Spicy Mid Wing ($9.80) with belachan chilli being the most recommended.
Mushroom Soup ($5.80) is an in-house made soup with chunky bites of a blend of mushroom. The soup has a smooth creamy texture however, the creaminess hint was a little too strong for me.
3 starters for selection and we chose the Baked Scallop ($8.80 for 3 pcs). Eat while it is hot otherwise the the cheese will harden.
Meat lovers can opt for the Carnivore Combo ($26.80) consisting of pork sausage, lamb, chicken and smoked duck. If we weren’t informed that those were lamb, we would have mistaken it for maybe pork.
For pork, Iberico Pork ($22.80) is a great choice. Lightly chewy pork with minimal marinate allows diners to savour the original goodness.
2 fish options, besides the Fish & Chips are recommended. First is the Grilled Salmon ($15.80). Best eaten with the crispy skin. I like it better when dipped with the Honey Mustard.
Next is the Grilled Cod ($19.80) with mashed potato. Personally, I prefer Cod to Salmon.
A choice of Single ($11.80, one patty) or Double Rock Burger ($15.80, two patties) which we opted the latter. The grounded beef was at a good grind size to provide a good bite texture.
Our last dish was the Tiger Prawn with White Wine Sauce ($13.80). The spaghetti has an interesting texture, similar to the Chinese La Mian with more chewiness and subtle white wine aroma. Personally, I would skip this dish.
Besides beer, an array of alcoholic drinks and handful of non-alcholic beverages, worth a page of menu are available. A pity, Tocha Bistro doesn’t offer any desserts.
We thought well of Tocha Bistro, especially if you enjoy your beers. Moreover, they offer quite a handful of delicious dishes to go along with the drinks.
