Suga Revisits Westmoreland! First Stop, Pelican Lookout!

Sometimes it takes a few months before you get the urge to take the 4-hour drive to Negril, but when you do, it’s so worth it!

First stop, Pelican Lookout restaurant and bar by West End, Negril.

It was overcast upon arrival, but then the sun came out and you know Negril heat hits differently, so go in the evening or night when the vibes and temperature are right.

Very attentive staff, big up Rohan and most of all, the Chef! Food ‘propa’.

A variety of Octopus dishes were on the menu, but looks like we just missed the season. We have to return to try those!

There were still great options for Seafood, Pastas, Burgers and Beverages. We opted for traditional Jamaican Conch Fritters, Oxtail and Curried Goat. They all hit the spot. Di Oxtail tender tender and slide off the bone. Well seasoned and wicked flavours.

Conch Fritters (US$8)
Oxtail and Beans
Oxtail and Beans (USD $17)
Curried Goat (USD$15)

Eye-catching rustic, artistic décor & view, rhythmic music, timely food and I can see the place lights up at night.

Pelican Lookout is #SugaEndorsed. Visit them when next on the West End.

Suga’s Breakdown: 

Last Saturday, with no weddings, someone to watch the kids and complete or postponed errands, us girls finally made time for Lunch, Vino & Cocktails! Can you relate? If not, it’s totally worth it.

Balance is key Suga Bears and thankfully, the recently Award-Winning Game Changer Restaurant Broken Plate
did not disappoint.

They don’t facilitate reservations, but it’s somewhat understandable in these times when a party may not show up and not give notice. We were seated quickly enough and our waitress was polite and attentive.

Loved the modern, simple yet tasteful decor.

The Restaurant was full to capacity, but comfortable and they still managed to send out our Appetizers, Beverages and Mains in good time.

We enjoyed Calamari, Duck Breast Bruschetta, the Smoked Marlin Salad, Grilled Salmon and BBQ Spare Ribs. The girls took their Dessert to-go.

Calamari ‘Pop’ (J$1750)
Duck Breast Bruschetta (J$2050)
Smoked Marlin Salad (J$2250)
Grilled Salmon (J$3650)
BBQ Spare Ribs (J$3950)

I asked for my Bruschetta to be lightly toasted and it was honoured, arriving with tasty, tender Duck Breast. I also switched out the creamy sauce for my Salmon with grilled pineapple & corn salsa. You can enjoy healthier choices when you’re out too!

A Restaurant for the young, old & in-between. It took me a while to visit, but I definitely prefer the changes made and this new location. Broken Plate is now #SugaEndorsed

That’s right! The Bread Pudding Factory is out in Linstead baking Bread, called BABKA!

Babka is a sweet, braided bread or cake popular in Jewish communities and The Bread Pudding Factory has brought it to Jamaica, baking it to perfection, more like Bread in its texture. The flavours are balanced and not too sweet, such as the pictured Blueberry & Cream Cheese, as well as Chocolate & Cinnamon.

Mi love dem you si! Stepping outside the box. Jamaica Nice. Order up and sweet up yuself and family for the lockdown.

Of course their assorted Bread Puddings are available too. Suga will help you to work it off next week! I promise 😊💖

Culinary Excellence at Excellence Oyster Bay in Trelawny, Jamaica!

Suga thoroughly enjoyed the endless variety of Cuisines, Restaurant and Bar options available at Excellence Oyster Bay with Excellent Service to go with it.

Great for Coping with Covid and I’ll say it again, the Best and most affordable Adult Only All-Inclusive in Jamaica right now.

Watch “Culinary Excellence at Excellence Oyster Bay in Trelawny, Jamaica!” on YouTube here: 

https://youtube.com/shorts/1ixg2UTnutY?feature=share

Excellence Oyster Bay has two Club members only Restaurants, Magna & Zenith, that offer the finest of dining and selections for Breakfast and Dinner.

Check out that Marinated Red Tuna Steak (medium) in the opening of the video! Perfection. Their Coconut Cheesecake was an understandable fave too.

Suga enjoyed Breakfast at Magna with a spectacular view, gourmet cheeses and breads that rolled up on a cart along with the richest Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.

No worries if not a Club Member, I can personally vouch for the Lobster House, Oregano (Italian), Spice (Pan-Asian), Aroma (Café), and Martini Bar taking care of all your cravings and culinary needs.

I didn’t even get the chance to touch the Buffet! By the looks of it when passing by, it looked impressive as well.

Most Restaurants offered Breakfast and Lunch and their were countless Dinner options that I have to return to try, such as the Chez Isabelle (French), The Grill (Steakhouse) and Caribbean Grove.

Don’t even get me talking about their Spa! Hydrotherapy and more. Other than a hiccup at Check-In, which they made up for… Excellence! Can’t wait to return. 👌🏾 #SugaEndorsed

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 👏🏾

#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.
