Tocha Bistro - Chill and Dine Around Lavender

Tocha Bistro

Residing within the parameters of Boss Hotel, along the Rochor River of Lavender, Tocha Bistro is a fairly new place to chill and dine. Its bar well stocked with a huge selection of alcohol, particularly whiskies due to its owner's love for it. Crazy Hour is from 5pm to 6pm daily, where beer buckets go as low as S$25++ for half a dozen!

Since cocktails are available, I might as well start off with Sex, I mean the cocktail named Sex On The Beach (S$15.00) which was a fruity subtle-sweet concoction of cranberry juice, orange juice, peach and vodka. My friend's neon blue Singapore Sling (S$18.00) was rather refreshing and I kind of enjoyed sipping it.

Homemade Mushroom Soup was first served, brimming with chunky bits of diced button mushrooms. Enjoying every mouthful of soup, alternating between the perfectly crisp garlic bread. Both the Baked Scallops (S$8.80) as well as the Smoked Duck Roll (S$6.80) do make excellent accompaniment to alcohol. 

I had the luxury to try a mix platter of Tenderloin Steak, Iberico Pork, Lamb, sausages and marsh potato, with a side of additional 3 sauces for the meats. I am a sucker for beef steaks and the Tenderloin Steak did not disappoint me. It was chilled and airflown from Australia, served rare which was my preferred doneness. Not bloody nor too chewy yet retaining its juices in the slab. I  totally enjoyed the Marsh Potato due to its delicate texture as well as it being drenched by sauce.

Having tried both the Grilled Salmon and Grilled Cod, my friend and I each have our individual preference. Both were comparable, just that I would prefer the oilier flesh of cod as compared to salmon. The skins of both fishes were similarly grilled to crisp and thankfully scaleless.

Probably my personal favourite dish that night that won my tummy over was the fork-tender Braised Lamb Shank (S$16.80) that was slow cooked overnight with herbs and red wine, served on a bed of mashed potatoes and baby carrots. Perhaps I could have slices of bread where I could dip or wipe the entire plate clean from savoury sauce.
(Note that this dish is available in limited quantities daily.)

Do check out their affordable Set Lunches, S$18 at nett prices available the entire week! Each set comes with salad, mushroom soup, fries and a choice of soft drinks.
