Sugarhaus has opened its second outlet within retail landmark of the East, Tampines 1. This is a unique tie up with United Overseas Bank (UOB), where the dessert parlour will operate from the Bank’s adjoining retail space. Apart from a streamlined menu of its signature brunch options, there is also a selection of locally-inspired homemade ice cream.
Known as “Bing Qi Lin” before it rebranded to become Sugarhaus in October 2016, the year-old brand’s flagship outlet is located within Serene Centre at Bukit Timah. Since then, it has cemented itself as a go-to spot for hearty brunches and desserts for those residing in the West.
Its new 26-seater outlet shares the same brunch menu as its first, albeit a more streamlined one. Diners can power through the day with the Sourdough Toast, accompanied with a choice of four variations: Truffled 63 Degree Eggs; Smoked Salmon, Dill, Cream Cheese and Capers; and Whole Sliced Avocado, Honey & Homemade Dukkah. Another option is the Melted Cheese Toastie with gruyere, cheddar, mozzarella, and served with tomato soup. Yet another choice is the Vietnamese Beef Stew – beef brisket braised in traditional Vietnamese spices, and served with sourdough.
Moving on to the sweets, Sugarhaus’ most popular item, the Rich Man’s Chocolate Cake, takes centre stage as the only plated dessert available here. The selection of ice creams, however, remains as the main draw. The ice creams, made from scratch in-house, come in a variety of flavours created by its owner, Stanley. The premium flavours stand out for the fact that they are richer and creamier than most commercial ice creams. While fans will be happy to find familiar flavours such as the Dutch Chocolate, Earl Grey Lavender and Thai Milk Tea, what sets the second outlet apart from the first, is the focus on locally-inspired flavours. These include Taro, Coconut Kaya, and Durian. Additionally, the second outlet exclusively offers flavours such as Hojicha, Apple Pie, White Chocolate Raspberry and Black Forest.
For a truly indulgent sweet treat, diners can pair their ice creams with Sugarhaus’ crispy and fluffy Waffles.
To complete their meal, they can also order a selection of coffees, teas, bottled drinks and juices.
