Toro

Overall taste: 7.5/10 | 2016 | 1704 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118

+++ = highly recommend | – – – = do not recommend

Toro is a hit and miss for us. There are some dishes we really like, and some we dislike.

Pictured above:  Paella valenciana – mussels, shrimp, spanish pork sausage, chicken and calasparra rice (half portion for $26)

– – – Erizos con caviar – caviar, uni, quail egg spoon with iberico ($15) [expensive spoonful, yet not that tasty. The caviar completely overwhelms the taste of uni.]

+++ Asado de huesos – roasted bone marrow with radish citrus salad and oxtail marmalade ($14) [love everything about this dish! The oxtail marmalade goes so well with the bone marrow underneath. It’s so fatty, yet sooooo good. It’s one of those dish you’d feel guilty eating]

– – – Lengua de cordero – seared lamb tongue,muhammara, seville orange marmalade and puffed quinoa ($14) [They still have this dish, but they have modified it slightly since we last visited. We felt that the lamb tongue lacked flavour. It almost tasted like it was boiled in water]

– – – Corazon – grilled archer angus beef heart and romesco ($9) [We ordered this because we wanted to try beef heart, but we didn’t know it will be smoked and sliced thinly. It tasted just like regular ham.]

+++ Foie gras a la plancha – seared foie gras, roasted beets, plum-rhubarb compote, za’atar spiced cracker ($14) [Current dish has changed since we last visited, it uses more orange flavours. Foie gras is one of our favourite foods and the foie gras here is definitely well-seared!]
