Good morning friends! By the time you're reading this, I'm probably still in Tagaytay or heading back to Manila! It's going to be a wonderful weekend spent with my friends! I can't wait to share to you my food adventures once I get back!
Everytime I visit my parents' home, I always like to bond with them over dinner, the problem with Sta. Mesa area, is the lack of food choices! Boy was I glad when SM Hypermart was there and there are a couple more restaurants added up aside from the usual SM Sta. Mesa. One place I haven't really taken the time of day is Sugarhouse, it was a sudden "craving for sweets" that took us to the place! From then on, it changed my overall view of the "Dessert Place", it is one nice place to dine as well!
Php165.00 (approx $3.80)
Crispy tortilla chips artfully topped with seasoned ground beef,
crisp shredded lettuce, diced ripe tomatoes, onions,
cheese cubes finished with tomato salsa.
I'm not sure if anyone who frequents SM Megamall would remember a small Taco stall called "Baron's Taco"? It's a favorite taco place of ours and we were literally crushed when we can't find them anymore! So this Taco Salad, from Sugarhouse is closed to what we were craving for from Baron's Taco! I love crushing the tortilla chips into tiny pieces and mix them all together for a lovely crunchy salad!
served with Chocolate Bliss Cake and Iced Tea
Php280.00 (approx $6.50)
I'm not sure if they offer the set meal the whole day but it doesn't hurt to ask! The meal is worth it as you get to try tender tasting chicken cubes, with a tiny bit of salad on the side with garlic rice!
Baked Pork Spareribs
Php250.00 (approx $5.80)
Ribs marinated overnight in a flavorful tomato sauce then slow-baked until tender.
Served with steamed buttered vegetables.
My brother ordered this one and he told me the pork spareribs is indeed very tender but he would appreciate the meal more if the fat wasn't that thick!
Beef Ribs in Beer
Php270.00 (approx $6.25)
Some rib fingers, the tender and very flavorful meat in between,
simmered them in beer to make this hearty stew
My dad loves his beer so I guess the presence of "beer" on its name made him order this! The beef is indeed very juicy, tender and flavorful, there's no beer taste at all.
Fish Fillet en Papillote
comes with Chocolate Bliss and Iced Tea
Php280.00 (approx $6.50)
My mom was craving for something healthy so this is a perfect choice! Cream Dory was used and I've given this a taste myself, I'm not a fan of peppered anything so I'll give this a skip!

Overall, the place is quite small so I'm not sure how they can accommodate a big crowd. I think the place is nice for the ambiance (quite homey) and of course, with such a small area, the servers are very efficient.
Have you tried meals from Sugarhouse?
