TGIF to Jumbo Cookies from The Sweet Dozen!

TGIF to Jumbo Cookies from The Sweet Dozen!

Last Wednesday, I thoroughly enjoyed my warm, freshly baked Jumbo Chocolate Walnut Cookies from The Sweet Dozen!

Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, with a rich, Chocolate flavour!

I had the Funfetti as well that has white chocolate in it! It was yummy too, even though Danielle Boothe, owner of The Sweet Dozen is still perfecting it as one of her new flavours.

The Sweet Dozen offers Cheesecake, Brownies and more. Delivery available. Order your sweet treat today! Treat Yo’ Self!

Enjoy the Weekend!

Suga Hits North Coast Restaurants for Independence Weekend!

It was so refreshing to leave town last Independence weekend and Restaurant hop!

Of course, with so many culinary gems on the north coast, I didn’t get to go everywhere I wanted to go, but definitely made a few stops worth mentioning.

First stop for Lunch last Friday, Evita’s Italian Restaurant!

Attentive staff with face shields, great, timely service, tasty dishes and a picturesque view.

We enjoyed Grilled Octopus, Smoked Marlin, Curried Shrimp and Chicken Breast and Chicken Breast Tortellini.

Grilled Marinated Octopus served with a fresh tomato and olive salsa (USD$8.50)
Smoked Marlin ‘Carpaccio’ sliced thin, topped with capers and marinated onion rings (USD$7.50)
Ja Curry ‘Supreme’ – Shrimp and Chicken Breast in Curry Mango-Chutney, white wine sauce (USD$16.50)

I concluded lunch with their Tiramisu. I was wondering why they didn’t dust the top of my Tiramisu with cocoa powder though.

Tiramisu

Stay tuned to see Suga’s next stop in St. Ann with Excellent Tiramisu!

TGIF to Mouth-Watering, Delicious Bread Pudding from The Bread Pudding Factory!

20200803_034616

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of indulging in mouth-watering, delicious Bread Pudding from The Bread Pudding Factory!

The Bread Pudding Factory opened in June of this year, a pivoting act around Covid-19 by Nikeisha Reynolds out of her home in Linstead, with the intention of acquiring a location. So the delicious Bread Puddings are currently available by delivery only.

You have the options of Rum & Raisin, Coconut Pineapple Upside Down, Chocolate Chip with Salted Caramel and the Plain Surprise.

Suga tried all flavours except for the Coconut Pineapple Upside Down. Although I love a Caramel crumble on top, they were all good! They had the right ratio of moisture to firmness and the flavours were really distinct. It was hard to determine, but the Chocolate Chip with salted caramel was my favourite.

Nikeisha, foodie turned baker, believes bread is a Jamaican staple that comforts the soul. She thinks it is quite versatile to use in the kitchen and so of course, she has other recipes for more flavours up her sleeve!

The cost for a mixed box of 4 is $2200JMD with an additional cost of $350JMD for delivery. Payment is COD or via Online Transfer. Order yours! The Bread Pudding Factory is #SugaEndorsed.

Suga’s Breakdown!

Suga has been craving lobster since it has been back in season. A restaurant was out of lobster last week, so why not go to an actual seafood restaurant, better yet, a new one!

Offshore Seafood Lounge facilitates social distancing with their ample rooftop dining space, whether covered or uncovered. So no need to worry about bad weather. I went when the evening just about cooled down and I could enjoy the airy seating with a city view, taking in all of Constant Spring’s new developments. Wink wink foodies!

Princess was our server and she did a great job. Attentive and pleasant throughout our stay, because we were there for hours. I blame the Bar and an excellent bartender. You know it’s hard to find a tasty, blended Piña Colada nowadays?! Even some of the hotels water it down, but you can get an authentic, rich, thick Piña Colada at Offshore Seafood Lounge.

IMG-20200802-WA0005

We were offered complimentary Lobster Head Soup as a starter, which we enjoyed and everything we ate after that too. Well seasoned, fresh seafood, rich flavours, tasty sides, satisfying portions and great presentation, all for a reasonable price. Definitely value for money.

20200801_174844
‘Flittaz’ – Fritters with flakes of salted codfish (JMD$600) and Fried Sprat served with a house pickle (JMD$650).

20200805_032848
Fish Tacos (JMD$1000)

20200803_035037
XL Shrimp served with mashed potatoes and seasoned vegetables (JMD$2300).

20200805_033901
Garlic Lobster served with one side and seasonal vegetables (JMD$2900).

For the ladies who love their pics, there is an Offshore themed painted wall with great lighting upon entry. The DJ is also quite good. They surely seem to live by their tag line, Great Atmosphere, Great Food, Great Vibe. Give them a visit if they are open for the Holiday tomorrow, or this weekend! They are #SugaEndorsed.
