Right when I walked in I knew Toast Asian Kitchen & Tasting Room wasn’t a place that serves what its name says. (Pardon me, I’m an uncultured swine. LOL) The interior was Swanky with a capital S. Floors were made of patterned tiles, there was a bar, a special room surrounded by bottles of wine, and the lights, oh the lights! The mixture of gray and dark wood made it all the more high-end. This is definitely a restaurant you’d like to look a bit dressed up.
Toast boasts of their cocktails and a roster of beer, wine, tequila, gin–you name it! And this special area you see below is a tasting room where you can try and bask in all the liquor goodness.
Now, I’m not exactly a girl who can hold my drink. I enjoy a glass or two, but that’s it. I’ll end up asleep in a corner if you give me one more glass. What I do enjoy is coffee–black, latte, cappuccino, cold brew, drip, anything that has caffeine, I’ll have it. So when I found out that Toast now serves coffee, I jumped for joy!
Here are a few photos of what a usual #cofficehunter‘s “work station” looks like. I enjoyed the latte, btw. No need to add sugar!
Clearly, Toast’s drinks aren’t the only the items worth checking out. They serve a roaster of dishes swimming in Asian flavors–spicy, salty, garlicky, and even gingery. These were dishes that made our palettes happy that day:
Appetizers: Tom Yum Meatballs and Chicken and Pork Belly Yakitori
Mains: Top Sirloin with Onion Compote, Twice-Cooked Pork with Salted Egg Fried Rice, Longganisa Pasta, and Toast Pasta
Desserts & Cocktails: Dark Chocolate Mousse, Tapioca & Mango Trifle.
Know more about the dishes in my Zomato review here!
The Twice-cooked pork with salted egg rice is my ultimate favorite! I can eat this all by myself, honestly.
Here’s a peek of their menu.
Overall, Toast is both perfect for foodies and #cofficehunters like us. I think the photos speak for themselves. Expect a satisfied palette and filled tummy afterward, you won’t regret it!
I’ll be back here to try out the rest of their dishes and update this post. Stay tuned!
