Sugarhouse is considered an institution when it comes to desserts.  They have been around for as long as i can remember.  And their branch in PowerPlant is one of the first establishments who set up shop a few years back. 

The last time I've visited Sugarhouse was eons ago.  Another visit is in order and Yeah,  i got another invite for a food meet-up!  Yey! 

Did you know that Sugarhouse also offers savory dishes?  Bet you didn't know that huh?  Anyway,  our generous hosts served some of their best-selling savory dishes.

Appetizers

| Taco Salad
| Sugarhouse Chopped Salad
| Mushroom Ciabatta

I only tried the Ciabatta.  This falls in the just okay category.  The bread is soft and i taste the mushroom but this is something that i would skip on my next visit.  Personal preference.

Mains

| Fettuccine Carbonara (Php 210).  A classic white sauce pasta with bacon bits and a slice of garlic bread on the side.  I'd probably rate this 3/5, the pasta is cooked al dente,  the sauce is flavourful but there is nothing remarkable about the dish.  This is something i can cook at home.

| Baked Macaroni (Php 230).  I honestly thought this was lasagna. This is a case of too much cheese and less pasta.  The abundance of cheese made the cloying factor really high.

| Chicken Cordon Bleu.  Big servings!  That's my initial reaction.  This however falls under the Just Okay category.  The breading is too thick.  The chicken though is cooked perfectly and really flavorful.

| Beef Ribs in Beer.  Wow!  Succulent ribs,  oozing with flavor.  The ribs is fall-off-the-bone tender and really flavorful,  i loved every single bite.

| Baked Pork Spareribs.  Another crowd favorite. One thing is fot sure,  Sugarhouse make a mean ribs dish. 

| Pastel De Lengua.   This is number one on my list.  I dunno how a decent pastel should taste like but my first spoonful is a party in my mouth, an explosion of flavors.  Who knew that ox tongue can taste this good! 

Sweets

| French Apple Pie
| Sansrival
| Silvanas
| Yema Balls

I aint got beef with their sweets.  Everything they served is delicious.  I don't feel the need to describe each pastry as Sugarhouse is a household name when it comes to decadent desserts.

I am happy to report that Sugarhouse is nlt a one trick pony,  they can definitely deliver in the savory department.  Some of the dishes need a lil upgrade but some are extremely good.  Please visit Sugarhouse soon and lemme know what you think. 

Peace Out!

A little bit of history first. We were told that Sugarhouse Powerplant Mall is one of the pioneer tenants of the mall. It has been in existence for as long as the mall itself. That says so much for this cake shop to withstand the changing palates of time. There is more to Sugarhouse than meets the cake and pastry stands that is prominently displayed upfront. Their loyal clientele should know because my family are long patrons of their Glorietta branch. Unlike their ATC kiosk (which unfortunately already closed shop) which only had cakes and bread and my personal favorite, the caramel candy (tira-tira anyone?) The bigger branches such as the one in Powerplant Mall also serve meals for lunch and dinner.

For starters our group had the Ciabatta with cheese and mushrooms. I like this one a lot because it reminded me of a pizza without the pizza sauce. The mozzarella was very generous and the mushroom is a good alternative to meat. The kids would definitely gobble this up. The Taco Salad was served next, the meat was very generous but lacked flavor. It was just plain 'giniling' that did not have any spices. I had to put tabasco to give it the distinctive flavor i was looking for. The salad was filled with almonds, mango, diced ham, egg. It tasted fresh and was served with dressing on the side which is good so that diners can control the portion and drown the salad (or not) to their liking.

Pasta served was Baked Macaroni with garlic bread. The noodles was cooked just right but the dish had too much sauce. The sauce itself was watered down. It was not thick enough to hold the pasta on its own.

The mains: Beef Ribs in Beer was a hit in the group. It paired well with the beans and carrots on the side and if not for my restrained could very well finish off the rice that came with it. The beef was soft and had great flavor. I also liked the BBQ Pork Spareribs which had the same vegetable sides and fragrant white rice. There was also Lengua but cannot give a review on that because I was not able to taste it.

The dessert was a given plus! Yema Balls and Silvanas is perfect with coffee. We also got to choose a cake slice. We ordered their best sellers so we can have a small portion to taste for the entire group. We had the French Apple Pie, Marjolaine, Chocolate Truffle Cake.

For my drink I ordered my perennial favorite which is the Frozen Hot Chocolate. I don't remember it being that small, perhaps I grew up and the serving was not as I remembered. But it is still as indulgent and delicious as ever. The overall look of the restaurant is in need of a renovation to stay competitive in today's market but the cakes are still one of the best in the market. Better lighting and set up of products to showcase their cakes.

Must take home is the 'caramel candy'. Perfect pick me upper. Just make sure to cut it a bit smaller since the chunls can be too sweet for some.

Aside from their Concorde cake, their Honey crunch cake is another classic must-try. It's your usual vanilla chiffon base with layers of honeycomb chunks and vanilla buttercream in between. Others might find it too sweet but I love how it reminds me of my favorite chocolate bars from childhood, Violet Crumble and Crunchie!128522

Ordered the mushroom ciabatta, it was very soft and good, the mozzarella cheese and portobello mushroom makes a good combo even on a different kind of bread since they ran out the usual one. The strawberry and mango iced tea was crisp, but too sweet. Same goes for the watermelon shake.

Went here with Rose B a while ago to buy papa a birthday cake. We tried the almond sansrival & marjolaine. The almond sansrival was yummy and it wasn't too sweet. Mama and I didn't like the marjolaine. It's not worth the price (165/slice) because it wasn't that yummy... It's just layers of wafer and chocolate; and the chocolate wasn't so good. We've tried the apple pie, cashew toffee, midnight cake before. They were all good but i wasn't really a fan of the cashew toffee because i'm not really the toffee type 128517 hehe but it was still good 128523

I'm not much of a cheesecake fan, but there are only 2 places which serves cheesecake that makes me pick cheesecake over a chocolate dessert. That's Bag of Beans in Tagaytay, and UCC! Now there's 3 places!

You're looking at the photo of Sugarhouse's New York Cheesecake. I must tell you, this is one of the smoothest cheesecakes I've tasted.
It's sweet, salty, sour, and creamy just the way I like my cheesecake!

Introducing the "Leaning Tower" of Midnight Cake! It's a chocolate cake, a lava cake, a historical tourist spot from Italy. Err ok that went a little far.

The midnight cake is one of the most chocolate-yest cakes I've tasted! It's moist, it's smooth and absolutely mouth-watering on every bite. What made it outstanding was that it was warmed first before it was served. Hence the leaning.

This just became one of my favorite chocolate cakes! 128525

Thanks Abe C. for the suggestion! Although couldn't give you looloo inflooence points!

Often ignored by the younger generation, this place has been one of the staples from childhood when my grandparents used to bring us here to satisfy a sweet tooth. Theirs 128116128117 not ours.

I, being part of the younger generation *ahem*, have been ignoring it too. Until recently when I contracted this crazy craving for different chocolate cakes. And their fridge cabinet's extra illuminated lights showcasing their display of classic cakes called me.

I went inside to find a couch, very much aware as I pass by different tables with senior citizens enjoying their cake and coffee. Their eyes were following me as if I'm a little sheep who lost her way 128530

I settled in still feeling mildly out of place, but decided to order away. I ordered the chocolate truffle cake.

The chocolate truffle cake is a classic chocolate chiffon cake with chocolate ganache icing. The cake is light and airy perfect for an afternoon snack with coffee. But the icing is coarse and grainy. You should be looking for smooth and creamy.

You will notice that not only are their customers senior, so is their staff. This only speaks of how well the restaurant takes care of their loyal customers, and their loyal staff as well.
So you can imagine how efficient & comfortably homey their service was.

I knoced out 11088 for the grainy icing and for serving my cake laying flat on the plate 128532 I guess they got a little too comfortable, but still I wouldn't mind coming back.

Surprisingly unique?

I couldn't find the words. Last Christmas, me and my mom bought 2 cakes from sugarhouse (pretty sure one was apple pie) but we both didn't find it extraordinary.

Tonight, me and my good friend ordered blueberry cheesecake from this branch in Powerplant.

For some reason, the "wall" portion of the slice was a bit hard -- more like the consistency of a Buko Pie's wall... Never ate bbcheesecake with this seemingly out of place wall/crust... But I loved it! :) I'm a big fan of Buko Pie and I don't know if this kind of crust was intentional but I really really liked biting into it :)

For me, this is a great comeback.

I have no words for the Chocolate Truffle Cake. O-M-G its the best chocolate cake everrrr!. It looks dry but once it touches your mouth its an explosion of moist chocolate and soft chiffon. I can totally eat a whole cake and not be guilty just because its soooo good

Still the best store-bought French Apple Pie in town - bar none.

Why the best by my books? We're talking loads of thick apple slices simmered in a rich butter-sugar-cinnamon syrup. Stuffed into a nicely thick crumbly crust that's loaded with butter flavor ( the crust alone is good enough to eat!). Topped with a generous serving of grated cheddar cheese. And with whip cream on the side.

If you're talking about perfect balance of flavors and textures---this is definitely one of those that have it. I particularly love the sweet-tang-salty-buttery-cinnamon flavors that all nicely compete with each bite. And the apples-nicely cooked and have the right crunch. It's a pastry that won't leave you "umay".

Visually (check this baby out in my photo), this cake's look doesn't fail. It's packed, nicely golden-brown, rustic. And it smells so damn good.

All these years, Sugarhouse--as far as their French Apple Pie is concerned, still has the best pie.

Certainly a dessert-lover's true must try!
