No Sugar Daddy is a new and unique cafe in Bacolod City. This cafe offers meals and treats low in sugar and carbs. Read more about our experience below!
Filipinos love sweet things. It’s in our DNA – hardwired into our palate. We have sweet spaghetti sauce, sweet marinated breakfast meats such as Tocino and even our plain white bread is sweet and almost cake-like. The most popular Philippine bread – the Ensaymada is a creation made with margarine and powdered white sugar.
It’s so hard to get away from sugar, especially when you live in Negros Occidental – the sugar basket of the Philippines. Fortunately, there’s a group of fine young entrepreneurs who created No Sugar Daddy – a remarkable cafe that caters to those who are watching their weight and who want to enjoy treats without the guilt!
No Sugar Daddy is located at Number 57 BS Aquino Drive, Bacolod City , Negros Occidental. They’re in the Pearl Manor Banquet Center right in front of the Paaralang Elementaryang Andres Bonifacio school.
The interior of the cafe is designed to look like a 1950’s style cafe with a cute red and green appearance. No Sugar Daddy serves meals as well as cakes and desserts.
You might be wondering how on earth could a cake be low in sugar? No Sugar Daddy uses a blend of natural plant based sweeteners which include Stevia.
What is Stevia? Stevia is a plant in Brazil that has traditionally been used as a sweetener. It has stevia glycosides that have 30-150 times the sweetness of sugar. The human body cannot process these stevia glycosides so these have no calories. The body will simply pass out these substances. They don’t get absorbed at all.
Of course, Moderation is the most important thing to observe when watching your weight and blood sugar.
No Sugar daddy has delicious meals and savory snacks too that are low in carbohydrates. Instead of using regular flour, No Sugar Daddy uses Almond flour and a mixture of whole seeds and grains.
Almond flour has a lot of health benefits. It is low in carbohydrates and high in protein. Almond flour also has a lot of Vitamin E and Omega 6 fatty acids. These fatty acids lessen the risk of cardiovascular disease. It has plenty of fiber too!
It was No Sugar Daddy’s Soft opening when we visited. We were the very first people to order from their extensive menu. We tried the dishes based on the recommendations of the owners.
No Sugar Daddy has burgers! We picked out the John Wayne all beef Cheeseburger which came on an almond flour flaxseed bun with aioli dressing.
How was our first experience with a low carb, almond flour bun? Well, it was quite amazing. The bun was very soft but extremely chewy. It was surprisingly very filling. There was a lot of protein from the meat, plus the high fiber bun just filled us right up.
The same chewiness is present in the pasta. If you love al dente pasta (pasta that is firm to the bite) you will love No Sugar Daddy’s pastas. The pasta is firm, chewy and holds the sauce so well. These are qualities that we think are the marks of a good pasta.
We tried the Sophia Loren Carbonara Pizza. It was ok. The crust is a little dry but the toppings and the sauce are really good.
We love No Sugar Daddy’s hot dog sandwiches. These are huge, loaded with toppings and really delicious. We tried the Chili dog. It came on a very nice bun and plenty of No Sugar Daddy’s special Chili. The sandwiches are huge, tasty, filling and loaded with protein and fiber.
If you’re familiar with Archie Comics and the Riverdale Series on TV, you’re in for a treat. One of the locations of the show and comics take place in a diner called the Chock’lit Shoppe.
No Sugar Daddy has recreated the iconic drinks and desserts from the comics and show. They make their own low sugar, keto ice cream that they use to create these “sweet” treats.
They have assorted flavors such as Vanilla, Chocolate and Fruit & Nut. Check out their Instagram where they have pictures of their fantastic ice cream!
We tried their Banana boat. It’s two scoops of ice cream with whipped cream, low sugar chocolate sauce and banana.
We noticed something really interesting. Since there was little to no sugar in the ice cream the natural sweetness and flavor of the banana was amplified. We couldn’t believe that the banana tasted so good.
We tried their milkshake which is made with their special low carb Keto ice cream. It was very good. The milkshake wasn’t super sweet. Like all of their desserts and drinks, the milkshakes are sweetened with No Sugar Daddy’s Stevia blend.
The root beer floats are made with the same low sugar ice cream and diet soda. Very nice!
Healthy food has a reputation for being flavorless, bland and unappealing. It is so nice to finally try a cafe that offers delicious tasty meals and desserts!
