Sugar Factory Philippines

Sugar Factory Philippines: More Than Sweets [UPDATED]

When one hears Sugar Factory, the first thing that may come to one’s mind is that it’s either of the following:

  • a factory for sugar (literal sense);
  • a candy store;
  • or a dessert place.

The answer is the latter two, but it also includes selections that are more than sweets. Indeed, the concocted sweet drinks we blogged last year for our sweet celebration aren’t the only items one can enjoy there.

We recently were blessed to receive an invite from Zomato foodie meet up. That means we get to try various dishes in one seating since we eat with a group. What we were able to try are the following:

 

PANCAKE AND WAFFLES

Sugar Factory Pancake

RED VELVET PANCAKES, PHP 320 (or USD 6.36)

These are three fluffy pancakes topped with white chocolate chunks, orange zest, confectioners sugar, and whipped cream. It is served with maple syrup on the side. I prefer this over the other pancake for the sole reason that this one has a lot of white chocolate chunks on top which goes very well with the pancake. I didn’t taste the red velvet as much, but this still is a yummy treat to start the day or as an afternoon snack.

 

Sugar Factory Philippines

GIGANTIC BUTTERMILK BANANA WALNUT PANCAKE, PHP 340 (or USD 6.76)

It’s one huge pancake topped with banana slices, toasted walnuts, cinnamon-sugar, and whipped cream. It’s served also with maple syrup on the side. It’s not the fluffiest pancake I’ve tried, but the package as a whole is tasty especially when eaten with the bananas and walnut.

 

APPETIZERS

Sugar Factory Philippines

BRUSCHETTA, PHP 280 (or USD 5.57)

Baguette slices are topped with fresh diced tomatoes, onions, basil, extra virgin olive oil, and parmesan shavings. I have low initial impressions from it because it wasn’t as crisp as it should be when I was about to try it out. I’m happy to share with you guys though that it tastes way better than it looks. The added salad in the middle adds the greens that some may be looking for.

 

Sugar Factory

SUGAR FACTORY PARTY NACHOS, PHP 440 (or USD 8.75)

My first impression of it was that it’s really designed for a large group of people mainly due to how big it is. There were four of us in a group and we were only able to finish half of it. When it comes to toppings, they went with the spiced ground beef, melted cheddar cheese, Jalapeños, black olives added some Sour cream and their very own tropical salsa. What we liked about these nachos are that the chips themselves remained crispy all throughout. Finally, their tropical salsa added the extra oomph it needs.

 

 

SOUPS AND SALADS

Sugar Factory

SIGNATURE SUGAR FACTORY CHEF’S SALAD, PHP 495 (or USD 9.84)

It’s not your ordinary mixed salad greens as it has arugula, Jamon Serrano, shaved parmesan, tomatoes, cucumber, poached egg, and candied walnuts with raspberry vinaigrette.

I like their use of poached egg as it enhanced the salad’s texture. On the other hand, I find the Raspberry Balsamic a bit lacking in taste and flavor as it lacks sourness.

 

SANDWICHES/BURGERS

Sandwiches/ Burgers Sugar Factory Philippines

GRILLED CHEESE AND SPAGHETTI SANDWICH, PHP 385 (or USD 7.65)

Spaghetti bolognese is sandwiched between cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese in pressed garlic bread. It is served with plain fries on the side.

Honestly, I find this one a bit odd, redundant, and a bit disturbing. It’s spaghetti inside a grilled cheese sandwich which is carbs on carbs. Although I also have to say that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover as it tastes really good. I like the tomato sauce used in the spaghetti and the meatballs is very tasty. Add in the fact that it has grilled cheese inside it makes it a winner in my boo

 

Sugar Factory

THE SIGNATURE SUGAR FACTORY BURGER, PHP 445 (or USD 8.85)

Angus beef burger, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, crispy onions, and choice of either cheddar, Swiss, or Bleu cheese on a potato bun. It’s served with ketchup and mayonnaise on the side. This isn’t their monster burger yet one will still find it a mouthful.

 

ENTREE

Sugar Factory

ORANGE CHICKEN AND SF FRIED RICE, PHP 565 (or USD 11.23)

It’s orange ginger crispy chicken fillet served with Sugar Factory Style fried rice. Me-An is hoping that the chicken is further cut down to bite-sized pieces as how it is usually served in the U.S. Plus, a hint of spiciness will make it more satisfying.

 

MILKSHAKES

Sugar Factory Philippines

(on the left) An insane milkshake, GIGGLES SNICKERS MILKSHAKE, PHP 795 (or USD 15.81) is blended cookies and cream ice cream and peanut butter. It’s topped with whipped cream, a whole Snickers bar, a halved waffle, and Blow Pop chocolate. The drink is placed in a mug dressed in sprinkles and Snicker bites. What is great about this milkshake is that the base is thick so the sweet props don’t easily sink. The mug dressing also doesn’t turn into a dripping mess. In fact, from the moment it was served until we were finished eating, the snickers and sprinkles were firmly stuck in place.

(on the right) An old-fashioned milkshake, MAKE A WISH, PHP 325 (or USD 6.46) is vanilla ice cream blended with vanilla cake pieces. sprinkles, and cupcake syrup. It is topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, vanilla cake slices, and a birthday candle. After Me-An tried it, she ended up making a wish of having more of that milkshake. Who wouldn’t? It’s a slurpable treat for anyone who wants to take the vanilla shake to the next level.

 

BAR DRINKS

Note: These are all available with or without alcohol.

Sugar Factory Philippines

GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE, PHP 320 (or USD 6.36)/ without alcohol PHP 200 (or USD 3.98)

We don’t know how a classic German chocolate cake tastes so we can’t tell if it’s accurate. What we could tell is that it tasted like coffee. Meanwhile, the coconut pecan frosting on the rim adds decadence to the drink.

 

Sugar Factory Philippines

ENERGY BEAR, PHP 870 (or USD 17.30)/ without alcohol PHP 490 (or USD 9.74)

It’s an energizing blend of watermelon vodka, other spirits, and tropical fruits. The gummi bears and Red Bull Energy drink makes it a fun and energizing drink. Well, of course, the smoky effect can’t be disregarded.

Drinking such is like drinking a tropical punch carbonated drink. It’s quite enjoyable especially when shared with family and/or friends.

 

Overall

Sugar Factory

Sugar Factory Philippines is certainly geared to the upper class with its prices. And when you’re used to American food, like Me-An, you won’t find the food special. However, their sweet offerings especially the milkshakes and cool cocktails/mocktails are definitely worth the visit. You may drink or try a similar kind elsewhere in Metro Manila but the quality, the service, and ambiance surely aren’t at par with Sugar Factory Philippines. Thus, it is an ideal place for celebrations or making your loved ones feel special whether one is a child or a kid at heart.

  14. This looks so cool. Really sweet celebration haha. Sugar Factory in Manila, how cool is that to visit? I would love to come next time 😉

  15. Oh wow congratulations for winning guys! By the way, my friend and a few bloggers got food poisoned during this event. Have you guys heard of it?

    On to the topic, this is the first time I’ve seen a candy store as posh as the Sugar Factory. I noticed that the mocktails are a bit pricey though? But I gotta give it to them for coming up with unique drinks, I mean a drink with gummy worms? How weird I mean cool is that haha…

    Reply
    • We heard about it from our friends. From what I heard, they were food poisoned from the kebab. We were surprised actually since we also ate the same kebab. I guess our stomachs are strong from eating :))

  16. I cannot think of Sugar Factory, no matter how I read through. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I am so proud of your two. Truly, you deserve to win. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you would. Anything else other than complete domination of that category is blasphemy. Good job and may you continue to come up with more posts.

    Reply
  17. First off, congratulations! By the looks of it, it seems you really enjoyed your experience there. Would also want to experience it for myself. 🙂 Though since you just said the price isn’t sulit, maybe I can opt to skip it. haha! But I liked the last drink you featured here. The gummy worms on the top made the drink inviting. :p~

  18. Wow! Congratulations on the award! Reading this post definitely made me interested in getting to know more of your blog! I’m a fan! Anyway, SUGAR FACTORY!! I’ve been hearing about this place so much a few times before and yes, the idea we’d ever think of is that the place is expensive, it might not be worth it or that we could always just find another alternative. I’m very pleased to have read your experience at the place and atleast now I can say that I’ve virtually tried it. Amazing couple! More power! ❤️

  19. The first look at the photo I know I needed to try the Red Velvet Pancake even if it’s on the expensive side. Huhu. 320 for pancakes is expensive for me! Anyway, I’m now having second thoughts since you said that you didn’t really tasted much of Red Velvet.

    That is quite pricey. Very intriguing though and definitely worth a try as long as you have the budget for it. The servings are huge and for most Filipino appetites these would be sharing servings. Above all I would LOVE to try the Giggles Snickers Milkshake.

  21. First thing that came to my mind when I hear the word Sugar Factory is diabetes, lol. But seriously, the food is to die for 😀 My friends would love to dine there. Spaghetti inside a grilled cheese? yes carbs on carbs, I love it give me one please! The milkshake is insane I agree and a bit expensive but I’d still love to try it.

    Reply
  22. You’ve got my mouth watering! The spaghetti and cheese toasted sandwich sounds naughty and delicious, and it’s definitely something I’ve done before! That milkshake dressing was incredible! I love when restaurants put that much effort into giving their customers an exciting experience!

  23. The price is quite expensive indeed. But treating ourselves once in a while to stores like this isn’t a bad thing to do, I guess. Well, as what you have said earlier, just make sure there are no unpaid debts and that you got savings. hahahah Anyway, though Sugar Factory’s price is quite expensive, I find the items really interesting and worth it to give a try somehow. I am quite interested with the shakes just the price is the downside. Anyhoo, I’d like to congratulate you two for being the best blog in the food and drinks niche! 🙂

  24. I regret clicking on this post at this time of the night X_x It makes me wanna go to the nearest cafe to eat something.. but then there are no pancakes at that cafe… I am eager to try the red velvet… but i am wondering if it is only good for person? I might not finish everything :O I need to go to this sugar factory asap 🙂

    Oh my gosh this looks like my idea of heaven! Both the sweet and the savoury stuff looks so good but I wonder just how unhealthy those treats are?! I can’t believe how tall the desserts are, it looks like a work of art rather than food. Wish I could try this place out for myself as it looks delightful.
