While the name Sugar Shack Diner may suggest the place only serve desserts, this small café on The Parade in Norwood actually offers a wide range of food that can be expected to be seen at an American diner. We enjoyed a Scoopon '$10 American-Style Burger with Fries and a Soft Drink' deal that allowed us to have any burger or hot-dog costing up to $14.99 with a complimentary drink and fries. The deal also allowed us to swap the fries for other type/style of chips.
Also known as KFC Burger for short, the chicken in their Kimchi Fried Chicken Burger had a crisp brown coating setting off the succulent flesh and a good amount of kimchi to give the burger its distinctive spicy flavour. There was some kewpie mayonnaise to help balance out the spicy kimchi and the bacon was done very well with the appropriate degree of crispiness. This was our favourite burger of the night.

Befitting its name, the BBQ Chicken Nachos Burger had enough corn chips to give the burger a crunchy texture well deserving of its namesake. The barbeque sauce added a delectable smoky taste to the dish and the liquid cheese tied everything together. We chose to swap the fries for sweet potato chips, which had the slightly sweet flavour that we liked.

We liked the beef patties in their beef burgers, which were quite juicy with a "char-grilled" flavour. The bacon that was used in the Smashed Avocado Burger was done as well as the one in their Kimchi Fried Burger and the fried egg had a lovely runny yolk. There was enough smashed avocado to provide a bit of freshness to the burger.

Another of the beef burgers that can be ordered, the Hawaii Five-O Burger, had a slice of grilled pineapple to give the burger a bit of sweetness and refreshing taste of lettuce and tomato to balance out the rich taste of the beef. Out of the fries we chose, we found the shoestring fries to be a bit average.
