Sugarholic Cafe opened early this year in Aberdeen Centre. The location has been changing hands many times and it seems that the restaurants in this spot never stay long. The restaurant offers Asian styled Italian food and desserts.
The interior is really girly, with fancy looking chairs and chandeliers. They offer afternoon tea, so I guess that’s why they have this sort of decor.
Prawn Pasta with Creamy Rose Sauce
I chose the Prawn Pasta with Creamy Rose Sauce, which came on top of a bed of green salad. The pasta was a hint spicy, but very delicious. It was topped with seaweed to give it an Asian twist. The only problem I had with the dish was that some of the shell was still attached to the tail of the shrimp, so it was more difficult to eat. Would’ve been nice if the shell was completely removed.
Miso Cream Risotto with Salmon Steak
S got the Miso Cream Risotto with Salmon Steak. The risotto is not like traditional risotto where it’s creamy. I found it more like rice in miso soup with tofu. It was topped with salmon, which S said was just alright. He said there wasn’t any crispy skin. S said that the food is pretty expensive for what you get.
Overall, the food is alright. Nothing too exciting, but I wouldn’t say it’s terrible. I’d like to come back to try their desserts. They are famous for their toast boxes and toast with ice cream.
