Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room - Great Restaurant Find at Ayala Malls the 30th!

Written By clapalisoc on Thursday, 16 March 2017 | 17:14

The new Ayala Mall, Ayala Malls the 30th, had been gaining popularity especially among the foodies because of the restaurants it houses. New food concepts, new restaurants that you can't find anywhere else that had foodies rushing to the place.



Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room
Welcome to TOAST!

Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room is one of these. With no other branches, Toast offers a mix of popular Asian cuisine with a twist.

Bar area with lots of alcoholic drinks to choose from!

Aside from that, they have an extensive bar list with all things alcohol - whisky, gin, rum, cognac, vodka, tequila, wine, cocktails and even craft beer.

Went there on a Saturday with my foodsocietyph homies for food tasting. Toast Asian Kitchen & Tasting Room x foodfanaticph x foodsocietyph = triple YAY!!!

We were warmly welcomed by their Marketing Head and had us try their best sellersas well as new dishes.

More details!

The restaurant was huge! Perfect venue for big groups. Mixing bricks, unfinished walls and wooden floor, the restaurant had lots of chandelier and couches! Loved the relaxed ambiance with an overall elegant charm.

Toast's Tasting Room

They also have this small tasting room which they opened first when they started operating in January. 


We were able to try the following:


Quesong Puti Croquetas from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Quesong Puti Croquetas for 299Php

Served with tomato laksa, each had a nice crunch from the breading but we weren't able to taste the Quesong Puti though there was a generous heaping of mashed potatoes inside. 

Toast Pasta from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room
Toast Pasta for 365Php

Al dente linguini tossed with Toast's signature Tomato Laksa dipping sauce and a variety of seafood.

This one's really spicy but definitely good!


Blacksa from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room
Blacksa

Blacksa is a new addition to their menu, officially launched March 06. This is your "negra" version of Laksa! This was a crowd favorite. Laksa without the usual strong curry flavor? It totally worked! They used squid ink to color it black and the bowl had a generous serving of squid meat as well as shrimps.

Twice Cooked Pork Belly with Salted Egg Fried Rice from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Twice Cooked Pork Belly with Salted Egg Fried Rice for 475Php

This was the group FAVORITE! Good for sharing, this platter had a tasty bed of salted egg fried rice topped with sinfully "succulent" and tender pork belly slices!

A closer look at this glorious dish!

The pork belly slices were braised then seared and then tossed in honey garlic giving a nice sweet and salty contrast. It was also topped with strips of crispy wanton adding texture.

Wagyu Cubes with Veggies from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room
Wagyu Cubes with Veggies

Another new dish that's not in their menu yet, this was one of my favorites! Loved the tasty and juicy Wagyu Cubes and the sauce that was soy based, leaning to the sweeter side. They added some greens for fiber.


Salmon Belly Teriyaki Rice Bowl from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Salmon Belly Teriyaki Rice Bowl for 248Php

This was our least favorite. The salmon chunks were tasty and cooked right but the rice had a sauce that was a little too salty for our liking. There was too much taosi but no teriyaki flavor.

Assorted Yakitori from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th

Wagyu Cubes from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th

Wagyu Cubes for 119Php



Shrimps from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room

Pork Belly from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room

Squid Balls from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room

Perfectly grilled, I loved the Pork Belly and Wagyu Cubes the most! The sauce used for these sticks was tasty! Aside from these, we also tried the Chicken Wings Yakitori. It's easy to inhale 1-2 sticks so you better order more!


We also sampled two desserts --


Tapioca and Mango Trifle from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Tapioca and Mango Trifle for 108Php

My absolute favorite! Tapioca layered with broas, fresh ripe mangoes and a sweet cream - this was delicious!



Dark Chocolate Mousse from Toast Asian Kitchen and Tasting Room
Dark Chocolate Mousse for 128Php

My milk chocolate loving self didn't like this but my dark chocolate loving homies said it was good.


For cocktails, we tried a total of 4:


PBB Julep from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
PBB Julep for 225Php

Makers Mark shaken with Pomegranate juice, Pandan syrup, mint leaves and lemon juice. There was too much mint leaves and honestly, that was all that I could taste!



Summer in the City from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Summer in the City for 188Php

Favorite cocktail! Bacardi White x Malibu x Pineapple Juice x Pineapple Juice x mint leaves x lime - it was light and refreshing and the presentation was just so fancy!



Jack Sparrow from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Jack Sparrow for 235Php

One of their best sellers, this one has Sailor Jerry shaken with Jack fruit, Apple and Lime juice, pandan syrup and egg white! Could have been better if there was more jack fruit for a stronger taste.


East Meets West from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
East Meets West for 248Php

This was one spicy drink but really good! A mix of Jose Cuervo x Tripple Sec x Lemon & Lime Juice x Jalapeno. The mouth of the glass was lined with salt mixed with chili and Togarashi powder!



Iced Tea from Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
Iced Tea for 68Php

Some iced tea for refreshment!



Toast Ayala Malls the 30th
What a feast!

Overall it was a pleasant dinner! We were pleased with the delicious food and would highly recommend this restaurant! You can also book a food tour with Food Society PH to experience this restaurant together with other great Kapitolyo finds! 😊

  1. It's hard to have any complaints about this place. It's easy to get a drink at San Francisco venues since they actually keep enough bartenders working at once, and you'll almost always find a place to sit. I love the vibe, the area, the people and the food at this place.
