#tbt to Authentic Pasta Dishes from PG’s Restaurant & Wine Bar!

Pappardelle Pomodoro with Pesto from PG’s!

It’s been almost a year since Suga has visited PG’s, but a trip there is overdue.

Chef Pierluigi Ricci’s hospitality and polite, professional staff is bar none. Their wine selection is top-notch to accompany the variety of delectable, authentic Italian dishes available.

Remember that PG’s used to be Toscanini at Harmony Hall. But now, it is a bit of a hidden gem along Tower Isle. If you drive slowly enough, you’ll be sure to see it or just give them a call! With Covid restrictions, opening hours frequently change, so reservations are recommended.

Some ‘Coping with Covid’ humour from PG’s

PG’s may not be as active or picturesque on social media, but please remember to support our best Restaurants so that we can move forward with them during and after Covid.

PG’s Restaurant & Wine Bar

Location: A3 Main Road, Tower Isle, Ocho Rios. Ja

Ph: 876-727-4386/2; 876-358-4136

Opening Hours: Wed. & Fri. 12 Noon – 5PM; Sat. 12 Noon – 4PM

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 👏🏾

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!
