I'm not your usual sweets-aholic but there's something in Sugar Factory that made me interested to try it.
The interiors scream sophistication. I'm loving the black and white theme, and the velvet couches. Cindy S and I were greeted by a smiling lady in the reception. She asked us where we wanted to be seated and of course, we chose the couch area. Our table was actually too big for us, but it made our dining experience comfortable.
When the menu was handed to us, I immediately turned the pages to the dessert section. I particularly liked to try their Sundaes, but each seems to be so huge and expensive. Cindy, on the other hand, wanted to order their Goblets. After a few discussions, we decided to get the following.
** Raspberry Watermelon Mojito Goblet (780php / 550php without alcohol)
This is one of Sugar Factory's signature drinks. It's 60oz perfect for 2-3 people. It's made with fruit juices, silver rum, and topped with watermelon candy and mint leaves. This was super refreshing, not to mention that it's aesthetically beautiful! This can be served with or without alcohol.
** Buffalo Chicken Wings (420php)
6 pieces chicken wings in original Buffalo sauce. This was sooooo good. I like my buffalo chicken this way. You may choose your preferred dip among bleu cheese, honey mustard, and garlic aioli. Of course, I went with the classic and had bleu cheese. It was legit. Buffalo chicken + bleu cheese = perfect combination.
** Kung Pao Pasta (435php)
I was craving for Charlie Chan pasta earlier this visit so when I saw that they are serving Kung Pao pasta made my heart jumped with glee. I chose chicken over shrimp for the toppings. The chicken meat was so tender and flavorful. However I didn't like their version of Kung Pao. It was too sour and bland in taste. The sauce was kind of diluted compared to Kung Pao pasta at CPK. If ever I'll eat dinner here again, I'll skip this and just try the other pasta dishes.
** Strawberry Rainbow (220php)
This is one of their gourmet ice cream sandwiches. This is made of two sugar cookies, strawberry ice cream, and rainbow sprinkles. This was a steal! Comparing its price among the other desserts, this is so sulit. Soooo good!!! The cream on top was so rich in texture and in flavor. I swear this was perfect in ending our dinner.
Overall I liked our dining experience at Sugar Factory. Nice place and interiors. It's kind of intimidating to enter the restaurant at first but once you're already inside, you'd feel relaxed and comfortable. The servers were so attentive and helpful to our needs. I like that they have buttons per table to call the attention of the servers. It reminded me of the tables at Kuppa.
P.S. They have King Kong Sundae which costs 2950php! It looks promising and delicious but so expensive! Gaaaahh ice cream party, anyone?

Sugar Factory opened to much fanfare last year, touted as the dessert place to be in Las Vegas! It also helped that they have an army of celebrity endorsers who swears by their sweet confectionary treats - Kylie Jenner ever has a $25 candy for sale. But there is more to Sugar Factory than sweets and desserts. Last Monday evening, I was invited to try out their food menu along with there varied drinks.
The place exudes opulence with the high ceilings and sparkling chandeliers, as the night sets in, the music turns from family friendly to EDM. They have a mezzanine area perfect for those intimate private dinners with close family and friends. Our group had the following: Bruchetta, a light started of tomato, basil, extra virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese on a baguette. Next served was the Signature Sugar Factory Chef Salad. It has mixed salad greens, poached egg, jamon serrano, candied walnuts, cucumber, tomatoes and balsamic vinegar dressing. This can serve at least 3 to 4. The salad was light and the components complimented well with the dressing. Nothing outstanding but a good way to start a meal. Next: Beef Nachos, i like how the beef had a kick of spice. The nachos was crunchy enough to pick up the salsa, cheese and jalapenos. Another plate good enough to share.
Next was a couple of sandwiches... i was surprised with the next one since it combined two of my favorite comfort food. Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Spaghetti. Tada! Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a hefty serving of spaghetti in the middle. The spaghetti was not drenched in sauce, but was flavorful despite the dryness. It reminded me of the spaghetti served at the clubhouse in BF Resort back in the mid-90s. So there is a bit of nostalgia there for me. Served with a side of fries. The Sugar Factory burger was served on a Potato Bun, also with a side of fries. The Orange Chicken with SF Fried Rice had hints of ginger. It was fork tender but nothing too extraordinary, even the rice although aplenty and packed with lots of ingredients did not register any distinct flavor.
The Gigantic Buttermilk Banana Walnut Pancake was thick and topped with bananas and walnuts. It was soft and delicious enough even without the syrup. The Red Velvet Pancakes was topped with white chocolate which gave its smooth chocolate finish. Even without the syrup, the sweetness is enough. Just dap on some of the whipped cream cheese topping. Steep prices can be a little discourging but if i would recommend, try the pancakes to share with kids.
Out of all the drinks served I like the Make A Wish - it is a vanilla milkshake topped with sprinkles and a couple of pound cake cubes. With a festive birthday candle, it will make anyone happy. Overall, the drinks can be a hit or miss since prices can go as high as 1000pesos and that is without alcohol in it! It is more of a novelty, fun place to spend a night with friends.

This place is not for the faint hearted & with sugar concerns. I swear to god, I think I have consumed my sugar limit for 2017 after coming here & I thought I had a sweet tooth! Lol. Those cocktails are ridiculously too sweet. I mean, I get it but man, it's sugar factory but I'd love to meet someone who would enjoy that level of sweet on their cocktail & less buzz!
As for the dessert, it was okay, nothing amazing. Crepe was good but the banana split is so-so. Love they sort of grilled it too. They didn't have chocolate flavor for our split so that sort of suck and the ice cream lacked flavor but had good creaminess to it.
Would love to come back to actually dine here & try chocolate cocktails, I think those stand a better chance for me to like hehe

If you have an American food craving. I think this is one stop you should make. I am not really into American food, we only tried the pancakes and it was good and BIG! Haha! Also tried their cocktails. It was also refreshing but a bit pricey.
One reason i will go back is the very accommodating staff and maybe their big a$$ cocktails. Was too afraid to get the "fishbowl" sized drink. Haha!

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.
