Toro Restaurant & Bar- Bonifacio Global City

Toro Restaurant & Bar is a fusion restaurant of Japanese and Mexican cuisine located in the heart of Bonifacio Global City. A unique combination that would bring fusion cuisine to a whole new level of appreciation and experience.


Conceptualized by the Genomal brothers (Vinnie, Nikhiel and Shwan), they partnered with renowned Chef Sau Del Rosario to bring their passion for great food to life. 

"Toro"- a Spanish word synonymous to "bull" that symbolizes strength and vibrance and at the same time a Japanese word that represents the delicate underbelly of tuna. 


The famous Geisha Mural painted by Mr. Alfred Galvez that occupies one side of the walls gave a Japanese touch to the vintage Mexican designs of iron chandelier and wooden chairs.


On Friday and Saturday nights, the lights in Toro dim with music that goes a little upbeat yet still manages to give a relaxed and cozy ambiance after a long day of work. 

Help yourself with various specialty cocktails that Toro takes pride in. And if you're not much of an alcohol drinker, you may choose from their mocktails that are equally fun and thirst quenching.

Toro Smoothie (P140)- strawberry, yogurt and orange juice


Chilled Mint Apple (P140)- apple, mint leaves and soda


Nojito (P140)- fresh lime juice and mint leaves



Toro Restaurant & Bar Beverage Menu:


After ordering some drinks, start your meal with a signature dish of Toro Caesar (P270) - Ebi tempura and romaine lettuce with herbed zesty Caesar dressing


Three huge pieces of crunchy Ebi Tempura with one whole romaine lettuce sliced into half and drizzled with caesar dressing. I love how big the Ebi Tempura was with its crunchy batter coating. 

A visit to Toro wouldn't be complete without ordering one of their Signature Dishes- the Volcano Maki (P410)- Salmon, spicy mayo and jalapeno stuffed maki mouth bursting with tempura batter coating


Stacked beautifully to resemble that of a volcano, the lava of salmon made this dish hot- Impressive, Exciting, Fresh and Spicy.

And while you're at it, why not try their tuna appetizers as well. You'll definitely won't go wrong with Toro's Nori-Chos (P250)- deep fried nori crisps topped with ahi tuna glazed in sweet and spicy sauce


We had fun munching on these nacho-like appetizers with fresh tuna slices in spiced up sauce and Toro's signature yellow dressing. It was just the perfect starter to go along with some cocktails or mocktails.

Another maki we got to try was the Ebi Ahi Guacamaki (P290)- prawn, tuna, cream cheese and shiso guacamole


Instead of the usual Japanese mayo placed on top of some maki, this one had guacamole on it. The cream cheese complemented the tuna slices and ebi tempura giving each bite full of flavors. 

Toro Restaurant & Bar Menu:


I love the whole concept of Toro. Where else can you find a Japanese-Mexican fusion restaurant here in the country? Truly a one of a kind and worth trying out! :)

    I would have to praise Toro Restaurant with their plating. I'm actually more drawn to cuisines that have a unique aesthetic to them, other than having a remarkable taste to each one. You did Toro more justice by taking these exquisite photos. :)

  4. You're such a happy camper. It looks like it from the way you describe your experience and the glaring colors of your food. Never been in a resto that incorporates both Spanish and Japanese flavors. I'm jealous.

  13. Does Toro and Torch (located at GH) have one and the same owner?

    Their food looks delicious by the way you take photos to it. Do they have high-chairs for toddlers if you recall?
