Located on the upper level of the plaza and featuring a shaded outdoor patio, diners are presented with a colorful, photo-filled menu that helpfully includes descriptions of less familiar dishes created with grass jelly, sago, and durian.
Despite the name, SweetHoney Dessert also serves a collection savory snacks, including the $6.95 house chicken wings, $4.95 crispy gyoza, $5.75 Thai curry fish balls, plus curly fries, shumai, calamari rings, and butterfly shrimp.
The main attraction — the artfully presented Cantonese-style desserts, most priced below $7. Plated on the brand’s orange-hued tableware, the small portions and price point encourages diners to try less common choices, such as the hot, or cold, snow fungus and papaya soup, mango pomelo sago tofu pudding, stewed hashima coconut soup, and Thai black glutinous rice.
SweetHoney Dessert, Shanghai Plaza, 4284 Spring Mountain Road, Suite D204, 702-888-1685. Open daily from 2 p.m. to midnight.
