Ziggy’s in Manor Centre Always Hits the Spot!

PhotoGrid_1493154174348.png

Ziggy’s Restaurant and Lounge in Manor Centre has been a consistently good spot to stop by and get authentic Jamaican Cuisine for quite some time now.

The service is good and it is usually a quick in and out. There is comfortable dining space and a bar if you have time to spare. They deliver as well.

Ziggy’s offers standard Jamaican Breakfast options such as Ackee & Saltfish, Stew Chicken, Liver, Salt Mackerel etc.

Standard Jamaican Lunch or Dinner options include Curry Goat, Stew Peas, Oxtail, Fried or Baked Chicken, Escovitch Fish and more.

The prices are decent for the large servings given and good quality of food they offer. Breakast items usually range from $500JMD to $600JMD. Lunch or Dinner options are usually $800JMD with the exception of Fish ($1000JMD) and Shrimp dishes ($1400JMD). Note that prices are tax inclusive.

The Daily menu is posted on their website (See information below), where you can order online and literally ‘cut di line’.

A few of my foodie friends have posted their Lunch at Ziggy’s and it was a refreshing reminder about what is just around the corner.

Last Saturday I was ravenous after a fun outing at the beach and I knew Ziggy’s would hit the spot. I stopped by at about 7pm and ordered the Baked Chicken with steamed vegetables only. No other healthy side orders such as boiled banana, yam or baked irish potatoes were available so late in the day.

I saw some Chinese dishes on the menu too but that wouldn’t fill the void. The Chinese are taking over Jamaica slowly but surely, but our food remains Number 1. I could see one of their regulars who I like to identify as ‘residents’ enjoying her dinner comfortably by the bar. She asked me what I ordered then she told me that they cook better than the ‘real Chinese’. What she said couldn’t be far from the truth based on the appetizing whiff I got that wafted up from the kitchen.

I did not have to wait more than 10 to 15 minutes. The Chef was extremely pleasant, saying he hoped he didn’t keep me too long and showed me what was in my box before he packaged it and sent me on my way.

When I got home I could see what the resident was talking about. The steamed vegetables were similar to what you would get at your local Chinese Restaurant. I am not a fan of Salads, but it was very tasty and not everyone can get that unique Chinese flavour. My well seasoned, tender Baked Chicken topped off by a savoury sauce was impressive too.

I am looking forward to trying that Chicken in Black Bean Sauce soon.

Since I was too greedy to stop and take a picture of my dish, here are pictures from Suga Bears.

How are the NBA Playoffs Looking?

The Cavs have already swept the Pacers.

The Celtics recovered and have now drawn the series 2-2. So have the Raptors versus the Bucks, with their series at 2-2.

The Grizzlies recovered as well in their series with the Spurs to bring it to 2-2, but looks like the Refs have been on their side this time to help them to do so. Coach Popovich of the Spurs also made some rookie coaching errors. For instance, he had Tony Parker who is 38, mark Mike Conley whose hands were red hot.

The Warriors should be taking care of business soon to sweep the Trailblazers.

The Clippers and Jazz have been going back and forth. Their series is tied at 2-2.

The Wizards are up on the Hawks 2-1. I think that series is a toss up but I give the Wizards the edge.

OKC looks like they cannot pull off an upset at all to beat the Rockets. They can’t win with a one-man show. The Rockets are up 3-1, so that series should be over soon at the looks of it.

Continue to enjoy the series!

It is certainly a sad day for the athletic world, friends, family and fans, as retired High Jumper, Germaine Mason died suddenly this morning in a bike crash.

Jamaican-born, Germaine Mason still holds the National record for Jamaica in High Jump. He migrated to the UK and represented Great Britain after 2006.

He won the Silver Medal in High Jump at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 for Great Britain.

This morning, Germaine lost control of his motor bike along the Palisadoes road, crashed and died on the spot.

Rest in Peace Germaine.

Upsets Already in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs!

Current NBA Playoff Bracket status:

PhotoGrid_1492490014944-1

Round 1 of the Playoffs have begun and we have already had 2 upsets. The Bucks beat the Raptors at home and the bigger story is the Bulls beating the Celtics in their house as well. However, even though the Bulls is the number 7 seed going into the Playoffs and the Celtics is number 1, the match ups are competitive. You cannot ignore the talent and experience of Rondo and D. Wade and the freshness and hunger of Jimmy Butler. This should be an interesting series.

The Pacers have kept close to the Cavs but have failed twice to overcome them. They don’t have what it takes to beat the Cavs this year.

In the West, The Trailblazers held their own versus the Warriors but the Warriors are just in a different class. They will keep the Warriors on their toes this series though.

The Jazz upset the Clippers to take Game 1 but I think these teams will go back and forth like the Hawks and Wizards in the East. They are the number 5 and 4 seeds respectively.

The Rockets rolled over OKC in Game 1. Suga believes OKC has what it takes to upset them but they have a lot of work to do.

The Spurs rolled over the Grizzlies in a Game 1 blowout. Game 2 was more competitive though, where the Grizzlies chipped away a 26-point deficit to a 4-point deficit. The Spurs regrouped and stretched the lead again to win and go up in the series 2-0.

During the game there was visible frustration from Zach Randolph for not getting foul calls, but it was their Coach Fizdale who was the most upset of all.

He went on a huge Post-game tirade on the Refs and is likely to get fined.

Watch “Grizzlies Coach David Fizdale was ABSOLUTELY TRIGGERED and GOES OFF on the referees!!” on YouTube here:

Coach Fizdale’s data does raise eyebrows but he should have quit while he was ahead. It’s not like he was playing a team like the Cavs. He was playing a team with class as well. ‘Kuwiet Kawhi’ is definitely not the type to cry for free throws. It just happens he got a lot.

Coach Fizdale has a ring from being on the Coaching staff for Miami so those Refs better recognize.

I assume they will come out hard at home. Hopefully the data is more reasonable for the rest of their series.

We’ll be looking out for the ‘They’re not gonna ROOK US’ T-shirts.
