Suga’s Breakdown

It’s always a pleasure to visit Harmony Hall, that dates backs to the 19th century, now the home of Summerhouse.

Exquisite outdoor dining with superior service and delectable courses that I enjoyed with my husband, Randy, friends and Suga Tasters, Ashleigh and Tennyson Arnold and Suga Baby, Blaire Arnold.

I could almost say our culinary experience was excellent from start to finish, but with fair warning, disappointing Dessert loomed the air. Bread Pudding is usually a common, highly anticipated request by us Jamaicans, where the calories are worth it. When ordered with a side of their dairy-free ice cream, the ice cream didn’t help it. It was dry and left unfinished. The other Dessert options weren’t satisfying either and sometimes this may leave a lasting impression, but definitely not this time. It’s early days, with many naturally talented bakers emerging during Covid. They should be able to find a superb Pastry Chef.

The Appetizers and Starch dishes were large enough to share, the Coal-Fired Proteins were divine and we had a few Cocktails. The Strawberry Bellini was on point👌🏾. Executive Chef Dennis McIntosh paid us a visit for feedback and he was lauded.

We enjoyed scrumptious Saltfish Fritters with a spicy dipping sauce, mouth-watering cheesy Callaloo dip with Crostini, Curried Ackee Wontons, juicy Local Beef Tenderloin cooked as ordered, Sweet Potato Gnocchi, tasty Orzo, mixed Mushrooms, savory Fresh Grouper, delish Ripe Plantain Gratin and one of specials of the day, Grilled Tuna with a heavenly lemon & cilantro butter. Feast your eyes.

Quite a delightful experience and currently considered one of the Best places to Brunch on a Sunday. Kudos to Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau, Jamaican sisters who have found a new home, where it’s always Summer, providing us with the pleasure of embracing modern, heritage dining with a side of fresh, Caribbean Sea breeze.

Eating Fun the Healthy Way this Easter with Stush in the Bush at HOME!

Randolph, Gabby and Annie Burgess of Suga Lifestyle.

Stush in the Bush was a necessity for me, staying home in Kingston during the Easter weekend lockdown. I was looking forward to it, I made plans for it, I scheduled it and most importantly, they helped me create a Culinary Experience for Hubby and I to enjoy at Home.

Don’t forget, we dressed Stush for it!

💖 Stush in the Bush FRITTERS with Ackee & Saltfish: Sweet Potato Cakes w/ vegan parmesan & fresh herbs
👌🏾I made my Ackee peppery for balance.

💖 Stush in the Bush customized spelt, gluten-free EASTER BUN & VEGAN ALMOND RICOTTA (Spelt & Gluten free flour mix. No Guinness, but molasses. No processed sugar, but agave & maple syrup; No mixed peel/fruits, but solely raisins)

👌🏾Perfection. I did not have the urge to taste 1 slice of HTB Easter Bun. Believe. Not too sweet. Moist, but not heavy. Well balanced and quite a tasty pairing with the Almond Ricotta.

💖 Stush in the Bush PIZZA: Kale Pesto, Vegetarian/Vegan Cheddar, Ricotta, Carrot lox, Olives, Capers, Arugula, Dill
👌🏾I forgot to ask for a less Vegan Cheddar, but it was still absolutely delicious and guilt-free. No dairy overload and no sinus migraines!

Thank you soooo much Stush in the Bush!
