My review of Sugar Factory – the Dubai Festival City location has launched the new social menu with new and improved additions to the old menu. With this new concept, the food presentations and flavours are great for those who love to post to social media. The social menu consists of international flavours rather than just the simple American cuisine flavours so it will suit the palates of everyone.
I was able to experience this new social menu at an intimate bloggers event where I had a fun time taking insta-worthy pictures. With a set menu to try, I was able to try a few that met my pescatarian lifestyle and I thought all of the flavours were wonderful.
My dinner started off perfectly with the seafood and coconut soup. The flavours of the soup base were rich with the lemongrass, coconut, and lime. The amount of seafood was great for a single portion, which consisted of shrimp, calamari, and mussels.
The mac and cheese pops were even better than the old ones that I had before here. The mac and cheese pops are now served on top of a delicious creamy marinara sauce. The sauce made the thick batter on the mac and cheese more enjoyable.
The chips on fish was very unique and delicious. It was definitely something new for my experienced palate to enioy. The potato chips were literally placed on top of the fish, so I was eating both the potatoes and fish at the same time all in one bite. The fish was seasoned beautifully and I was amazed at how perfectly cooked it was inside the potato chips.
Finally, I finished off the tasting with SFD chocolate mess dessert which was literally a mess of chocolate goodness. The candies on top of the chocolate balanced out the rich texture and flavours of the chocolate brownies.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 5/5.
I ordered some of the social menu dishes which were the improved mac and cheese pops for 40DHS, chips on fish for 45DHS, seafood and coconut soup for 26DHS, and the SFD chocolate mess dessert for 75DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here are reasonably priced for the large portions sizes of each dish.
The service was outstanding with our server making sure our beverages were to our liking and that our tables were cleared after each dish. The food came out in a great amount of time.
The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful and modern. I loved how we were able to walk through the candy store upon entering. The decor is elegant, and the pictures of celebrities on the walls was a nice fit as this is a well known and favourite place of celebrities in the United States. This restaurant is in a very good location inside the Dubai Festival City Mall with a view of the water, laser, and light show outside.
