Food was the very last thing that sprung to mind when I thought of Sugar Hut.
However the TOWIE favourite has now entered the wonderful world of Liverpool restaurants and I was definitely intrigued by Victoria Street’s latest addition.
No expense has been spared on the decor of this brand new restaurant and the gold-clad bar stands out from the minute you walk through the door.
The restaurant and bar area are decorated to the highest possible standard making it feel super luxurious – just what you want for a special evening out.
Heavily gilded and adorned with Veuve Clicquot and Champagne baths, the bar area looks absolutely amazing and I can definitely see how the space would work as a day to night venue with ease.
Although I didn’t get to enjoy the cocktail area made up of luxurious upholstered booths, it is sure to be a hit with those looking for a fabulous venue for an evening out.
The restaurant area is adorned with mirrors, clad in bright pinks and blues and is similarly decorated to the rest of the venue. The seats are comfortable and funky.
I started with the wine menu, choosing a Pinot Grigio Rose which was absolutely divine! I would definitely recommend getting a bottle as a glass wasn’t enough for me.
The wine menu seems to be very well thought out with something for every body. My dining partner had a pint of Staopramen which was enjoyable and something I had not seen widely available.
We started with a sharing platter of breads which was well put together and served beautifully. My particular favourite was the Focacia, it was absolutely delicious!
We also shared a starter of Spiced Chicken Wings which were similarly delicious. In my opinion they had the perfect amount of heat whilst still keeping the flavour.
Sticking with the chicken theme, I opted for the Honey Glazed Chicken Thighs. They came served on four hanging skewers which was a novel and unique fashion yet thoroughly enjoyable.
They were perfectly seasoned and the honey added to the crispiness of the chicken – an absolutely delicious dish. I also had the Truffle and Parmesan Fries which were one of the tastiest foods I have ever eaten.
My dining partner opted for the 10oz Rib Eye Steak which again, was both well-cooked and expertly seasoned.
Steaks can be somewhat hit and miss however this steak was flavoursome and of a high quality. This was paired with Smoked Salt Chips which were also delicious and the smoked salt added to the flavour.
Perhaps my only complaint is that sides do not come with the mains – in my opinion it would be better to have accompanying sides with the main courses but I really am splitting hairs here.
I could not have physically fitted a dessert in however the menu looked incredibly varied with White Chocolate Cheesecake catching my eye… I will just have to go back to try the desserts!
Admittedly I was surprised at how good the food was. To my mind, Sugar Hut represents a nightclub however I was pleasantly surprised.
It has the perfect balance between good food and a truly outstanding venue. A good mix of people came in and out, some to done and others just for drinks.
Situated in what used to be The Living Room, it had very big shoes to fill, however I am very sure that Sugar Hut will hold it’s own.
