Suga’s Comments: 

Suga enjoyed the weekend before lockdown with hubby, Randy at Cru Bar & Kitchen’s Saturday Brunch.

Rooftop dining is quite sunny in the early afternoon, but we had a bit of breeze and some seating areas were partially covered or shaded. I welcome back the fans anytime though.

I appreciate the Scan Barcode menu anywhere I go. #SugaSnaps #CopingwithCovid

We enjoyed their consistently tasty and authentic Murray’s Curried Goat, as well as their Grilled Salmon along with refreshing Cocktails. We had two rounds of the Blue Lagoon Mojito and Whiskey Sour.

Murray’s Curried Goat served with handmade roti, bammy and steamed veggies (J$2100 +10% serv. charge +tx)
CRU Grilled Salmon with mashed potato, steamed veggies and sweet cilantro, lime glaze served on the side (J$2800 +10% serv. charge +tx)

Service was slow, but our waiter was attentive and we were just thankful for being outside, listening to the DJ play and seeing and waving to people from a distance. Seeing a few younger millennials in action was entertaining as well. The lighting on the rooftop seemed to be perfect for selfies.

Looking forward to returning to Brunch at CRU after the lockdown weekends.

…Until next time!

Seaside Dining by a Hidden Gem along Tower Isle!

With the upcoming lockdown weekends, I am happy my hubby, Randy and I didn’t put off visiting this hidden gem of a restaurant along Tower Isle, Ocho Rios two weeks ago.

Suga’s Breakdown:

The Rocks Restaurant & Bar is located on the seaside directly across from Harmony Hall and has breathtaking views, attentive staff and food done to order.

We enjoyed Escargot (could have been a bit spicier), Roast Chicken and quite a commendable Curry Goat. #SugaSnaps

Escargot (USD$15)
Roasted Chicken (USD$12)
Curried Goat (USD$15)

The Crème Brûlée was deliciously rummy! A pleasant surprise.

Crème Brûlée (USD$8)

The Rocks Restaurant & Bar is #SugaEndorsed. Thanks for the hospitality. I will have Cocktails from the Bar next time around!

Eating Healthy the Fun way with The Commissary’s Simo’s Bread and Catering!

Start your week off the right way and remember you can eat healthy the fun way on weekends too!

Watch “Eating Healthy the Fun way with The Commissary’s Simo’s Bread and Catering!” on YouTube here:

I enjoyed going to the The Commissary by Devon House and using Simo’s Bread and Catering’s Cherry Tomato Salsa to top off my loaded baked Potato Wedges and Chicken franks (meat optional) also topped off with black beans and corn. Great for a light Lunch.

Then I had a little extra left and used it top off my Sunday Dinner! Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed Simo’s Bread and Catering’s Vegan Pesto with my Grilled Chicken & whole grain Linguine Pasta, also topped off with a dash of low-fat, low calorie (20 cal.!) grated Parmesan Cheese.
