Another one of those "looks great tastes blah" drinks.
Server comes in with the huge goblet and pours in the alchohol mix in front of you. The whole concoction starts to bubble and smoke. It threw me back to a time in my childhood when we would pay the friendly Magnolia ice cream man for chunks of his dry ice supply and then gamely play mad scientist. (those were the days!)
Where Sugar Factory got my goat was how they presented this in their menu. Call me stupid but I ordered the drink assuming it was affordable. Their menu does not include the drink price anywhere near the picture. All prices are in a separate page. Whoever thought of that must have been a "genius".
Imagine our surprise when the bill came and this one goblet drink alone was more than a thousand pesos. It fact, it accounted for about half of everything we ordered, and there were 6 of us. Go figure! When we asked why so expensive, we were told it was because of the alchohol. In the same breath, our waiter told us that it would have been way cheaper if we ordered the non-alchoholic version!
Menu pictures so enticing to draw you in but absolutely no warning as to how much! In my book, so deceitful.
Well, expensive lesson learned!

Fancy-looking spot! Didn't know they served "real food" like burgers and pasta because you know, they're called Sugar Factory.
They have crazy fancy milkshakes that cost almost Php 1,000. I didn't have the guts to order that much sugar though.
So I instead got the Nutella Crepe. I know I know... I could have gotten it from Cafe Breton and honestly it would have probably tasted the same. The cost would roughly be the same too.
The only difference would be the ambiance - and that they have a DJ! Thankfully he was playing 90s music and not tugsh tugsh.

Finally! Sugar Factory Manila is now open! The first branch in Asia. Originally from Las Vegas. They have branches in New York and Dubai.
At first glanced I was greeted by their staff holding a Britney Spears Lollipop. The lollipop is "sosyal" there's a gem in the holder. I asked how much is the lollie, she replied Php1,099.00 "Ang mahal" hahaha! "it's refillable" the counter replied back.
As I enter their restaurant, I know the place will be a expensive one. With its classy black and white interior, shimmering chandeliers and reflecting mirrors in the wall.
The waiter assisted me in my table and took my order. I got Mudslide Ice Cream Sandwich for Php220.00 and S'mores drink without alcohol for Php240.00.
Mudslide - ️️️️ 4/5 "It's very sweet and addicting, you can share it with your friend"
S'mores - ️️️️ 4/5 "Maybe it would be better if I put some alcohol to my drink."
Upon exiting I explore Sugar Factory's candy store... I saw M&Ms, Gummy Bears, Lollipops and different varieties of chocolates and candies.
Sugar Factory is located at the G/F of Shangri-la The Fort, BGC, Taguig.
