Nothing but Smiles when Sear 274 Caters at Your Home!


#tbt to Sear 274 (Instagram: @sear274) catering at the home of Suga Tasters, Ashleigh and Tennyson Arnold!

What a Charcuterie Board! Love them.

Suga Tasters also enjoyed Thai Seafood green curry with Caribbean spiny Lobster, Shrimp and Crab with spicy notes to elevate the dish and more.

It wouldn’t be a complete experience without Sear 274 Dessert!

Perfection is the only word that the Arnolds could use to describe their Sear 274 feast. Bravo 👏🏾

Happy Monday! Cheers to my Healthy Espresso Frappé from Ragamuffin Café!

Service was quick and curbside delivery was facilitated without hesitation.

#tbt to this Shrimp Surf & Turf from The Neptune’s at Beaches Resorts, Ocho Rios !

The Neptune’s Shrimp Surf & Turf with Chargrilled Boston cut Striploin Steak, Shrimp Skewer, mashed potatoes, sautéed vegetables and garlic butter was divine! Tender, juicy and well seasoned. Kudos to Chef Viv!

Dinner was spectacular from the start with their Seafood Salad, Assorted Meze including Octopus, Prawns and more, Ceviche, the mains with Surf & Turf, Lamb, Swordfish Steak, Pastas and more, topped off with Baklava and Ice Cream for the finale. My family cleaned up!

The Neptune’s at Beaches Resorts
always delivers! Especially when they used to have booths at various festivals and events.

They maintained great service when the hotel was fully booked and understaffed. Bravo.

Suga Taster, Jehan Dines Seaside at Rusty Pelican Miami!

Parking: ★★★★★
Ambience: ★★★★★

Value for $: ★★★★★

Although it’s known that Miami has some of the best restaurants in South Florida, foodie & Suga Taster, Jehan was pleasantly surprised by her experience at Rusty Pelican from arrival to departure.

Suga Taster, Jehan’s Breakdown:

“The hostess was quick to check the reservation and seat the 5 of us as we arrived. Shortly after, our server Mike T. came over, introduced himself, provided our menus and took drink orders. 

Rusty Pelican’s Old Fashioned
Passion of the Soul
Blurred Lines

Mike T. was quite attentive as the evening progressed and even ensured to note any food-based allergies.

The Appetizers and Main courses did not disappoint!

Jumbo Gulf Shrimp Cocktail
Dayboat Pistachio Scallops
Crispy whole local Snapper
The Chilean Sea Bass
Rusty Pelican Board for two!
Short Rib Empanadas

They lacked dessert options though and the two ordered did not hit the sweet spot. The Sticky Toffee Pudding is a warmed Date Cake served with brown butter pecans and caramel ice cream. The warm Cafe con leche consisted of white chocolate, cuban coffee, and cookies & cream ice cream.

Cafe con leche

Looks and Sounds great eh? Sadly, the date cake was dry and dense and the Cafe con leche left a lot to be desired.

Despite the disappointing Dessert, the experience, Mains and cocktails were still great and I will definitely be back” ~Suga Taster, Jehan Knight.

TGIF to Sal’s Sweets Baking the World a Better Place!

TGIF and #fbf to #Sugataster Randy and I indulging in the unique variety of Sal’s Sweets delights.

From practicing Financial Services in Estonia and Florida to settling back home in Jamaica and practicing her passion, Sal Mahtani brings out the flavours she has grown up with that complement each other so well. She is of Indian heritage and has family in the Phillipines, where she has visited as well as countries in Europe. Being well travelled, she has demonstrated a knack for playing with different flavours, for anything but an average result.

This home-taught Baker started out baking Lemon Rosemary Scones for herself and friends while living in Florida. Go figure!

In a currently saturated field of Bakers especially during the pandemic, Sal does not do the classic Cookies, Cupcakes, Banana Bread or Cinnamon Rolls. It’s innate for her to do spin offs.

Russian Tea Cookies
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies
Baklava with a twist!
Baklava with a twist! (Shortbread crust, layered with nuts, baked with filo dough on top and drizzled with pumpkin spice syrup!)
Carrot Cake with a twist! Carrot Cake loaf topped off with with roasted walnuts, cranberries and spiced cream cheese frosting!

Her signature Cookies are Russian Tea Cookies that melt in your mouth, using her Mom’s recipe that she has recreated to offer vegans too. Her Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies with local Chocollor Chocolate, Earl Grey Lavendar Cookies and atypical Baklava are divine. A twist on the classic Baklava, using a shortbread crust, layered with nuts, baked with filo dough on top and drizzled with pumpkin spice syrup! Excellent texture for travel, whether it’s you or Sal! She frequently comes to Kingston on weekends from Ocho Rios for pick up and can facilitate FREE Delivery. Her products are now in the new Ciao Bella Café and soon to be in Lala’s Nutmeg in Ocho Rios!

Looking forward to Sal’s Sweets’  Summer spin offs! A little birdie told me I can look out for Lychee Lavendar, Chai and Lemon Basil flavours with Popsicles in the mix!

Happy Hump Day! I love Matcha and the Matcha Chiller from Rituals Coffee House!

Matcha is specially grown green tea leaves, finely grounded into a nutrient rich powder. It has caffeine properties to give you a boost of energy without the jitters.

My Matcha Chiller with Almond milk was fantastic along with my yummy, tender Mexican Grilled Chicken Sandwich last Saturday for Lunch.

If you can’t have caffeine, try the Matcha Chiller at Rituals Coffee House in Village Plaza!

If not, Coffee Roasters Jamaica will give you the dose of caffeine you need.

Enjoy a cup of Matcha or Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee today to get you through to the end of the week!

Whether it is Coffee Roasters Jamaica (Ig:@coffeeroastersjamaica), Moy Hall Estate Coffee (Ig:@moyhallcoffee), Stoneleigh Coffee (Ig:  @stoneleigh.coffee), Cafe Blue (Ig: @cafeblueja) or Jablum Coffee (Ig:  @jablumcoffee), you name it! Drink Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee! Sip the Greatness.

For the Love of Matcha and For the Love of Coffee!
