Is it kid-friendly?
One Sunday morning in December found me, my hubby and our youngest in Trinoma. We were in the Landmark department store buying long socks, yellow shoes and hair clips for the Christmas program attires. After walking, placing the purchases in the car and looking for a restaurant, we settled for Torch Restaurant because it seemed to provide a lot of food choices.
The interior was made up of industrial elements infused with natural features. There were many interesting things to notice inside like the open lampshades and the tall “grass” that served as an accent wall. I also noted that the fire in the logo of Torch, which was emanating from the letter t, reminded me of a welding torch, not the torches in caves or in the Olympics.
It’s a family restaurant that offers pizza, sushi, steak and more. I assumed it was a family restaurant because:
- I spied groups of families dining there.
- Cayla was given a strange elephant balloon that didn’t have a string.
- There was a glass of toasted pasta to munch on while waiting. Crunchy and salty! One way to keep hungry kids occupied. Cayla ate lots of it!
But, there were some things that were not child-friendly. Like:
- the heavy and noisy (maybe) iron chairs.
- the scalding skillet pan the burger mac and cheese came in. I ordered this for the kid, but she cannot finish it (she must be full from the pasta appetizer). As you can see, it’s very cheesy! Her dad ate the burger patty.
- the scorching granite slab stone grill that might cause burns to curious little fingers. This was what I had, most beef pieces were soft, they serve them medium rare as the table top stone grill will continue to cook the bloody US Angus tenderloin salpicao medallion … And I really couldn’t say ‘no’ to mashed potatoes!
To answer the question above, I would say…
- It depends on what food was ordered.
- There were high chairs for children, so I have the option to forego the iron chairs.
Have you tried dining at Torch Restaurant? How was the experience?
