Torch recently introduced their new line of noritacos and elevated cocktails. A noritaco takes sushi ingredients and marries it to a seaweed shaped like a taco shell. There are a total of 8 different noritaco variants you can pick from.
The Kumo (P172.95/1pc, P324.95/2 pcs) has fried soft shell crab, spicy mango, alfalfa and tobiko.
The Hotto Ebi (P137.95/1pc, P254.95/2 pcs). This is a combination of shrimp, spicy olio sauce, mango salsa and cilantro.
The Oniku (P202.95/1pc, P384.95/2 pcs). This noritaco goes the cooked and savory route with US angus beef cubes and shiitake mushroom in teriyaki sauce and topped with leeks and carrots.
Chuka Iidako (P152.95/1pc, P287.95/2 pcs). The hands down favorite of the night, a mix of spicy baby octopus, sesame, cucumber and spring onion. The spiciness gave balance to the crisp seaweed taco shell as well as the ample rice inside.
