Review: Sugarhouse at SM Megamall, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City

Valentine’s day should never have to be sad when you’re single. I mean, how can I be sad when I have a best friend to spend it with me, and just be grateful for all the chocolates and sweets we treated ourselves to at Sugarhouse? After watching Starting Over Again, and having a quick lunch at Yoshinoya, we made our way to Sugarhouse located at the 2nd floor of SM Megamall Building A for some much needed girl talk while enjoying our slice of cake and a warm cup of coffee.

Sugarhouse has been a premier cakeshop for 28 years now, and started their sweet beginnings on a small lot in Makati City in July of 1983. Despite the lack of marketing efforts, people flocked the cakeshop for its Blueberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Truffle, and their popular French Apple Pie. Their popularity grew, thus more outlets opened. At present, Sugarhouse has 13 branches, and through the years, they have expanded their menu to accommodate soups, salads, sandwiches, and various house specials that keep their customers coming back for more.

Sugarhouse and Perxclub Rewards

Sugarhouse is Perxclub’s partner merchant, wherein with every purchase from Sugarhouse, I get to earn Perxtamps. And when I earn a certain number of Perxtamps, I can avail a free item on Sugarhouse’s Menu! It would be a waste to be buying from Perxclub’s merchant partners and not knowing that for a minimum amount purchased, I can earn Perxtamps, which can get me cool freebies once I’ve stacked up at least four! Get to know Perxclub’s partner merchants so that you’ll be rewarded for every purchase you make.

Sugarhouse and Perxclub

With Sugarhouse, the process of earning Perxtamps was a breeze.  After paying for my purchase, Sugarhouse’s staff assisted me with the scanning of the QR code, and voila! The Perxtamps I earned got saved into my account without hassle.

It was a shame that Sugarhouse at SM Megamall did not offer “real meals” and only had desserts and pastries in the menu. I would have loved to have tried out their Baked Pork Spareribs and their Beef Ribs in Beer Stew! I look forward to visiting another branch that carries these items on their menu soon!

But for the most part of my visit, I had a hard time choosing what to order. If it was only possible to have a bottomless wallet and order everything in the menu. But again, I had to prioritize!

So Lynette, my bestfriend, and I bought a slice of cake each. She got a Chocolate Truffle for herself, and I got a New York Cheesecake. It was so difficult to resist buying more cakes, so we bought another slice of Chocolate Truffle for takeout. We enjoyed our cakes with coffee.

New York Cheesecake (Php 160)

Is there such a thing as “Love at First Bite”? There probably is! I loved Sugarhouse’s New York Cheesecake’s simplicity, and how it’s not too sweet, so you get to enjoy every bite and still look forward to your next slice.

Chocolate Truffle (Php 150)

My sweets-averse bestfriend ordered the only acceptable sweet dessert to her: chocolate. And nothing screams CHOCOLATE! better than Sugarhouse’s Chocolate Truffle. It was a bite of dark chocolate goodness, and this is even big enough to be shared by two people. Unless you’re heartbroken, then by all means, go for two slices even!

Cafe Latte (Php 180)

Capuccino (Php 80)

I bought a few more items as pasalubong to my family:

Cream Puffs (Php 150) — These cream puffs were huge!

Cinnamon Raisin Roll (Php 40)

Sugarhouse Ensaymada Minis (Php 130 for 6 pieces)

The fambam loved the pasalubong and enjoyed the treats for desserts, afternoon snacks, and even the chikitings’ baon to school!

I had a sweet Valentine’s thanks to these delectable treats from Sugarhouse. I hope to spend another afternoon in the comfort and company of Sugarhouse’s house specials and a perfect cup of coffee.--HANA
