Steakhouse on the Verandah! Still Fantastic !

Randy Burgess, Director of Suga Lifestyle

We’ve come to another stop on Randy’s Birthday Hopping Weekend, Steakhouse on the Verandah (Ig: @steakhouseontheverandah) at Devon House.

It’s been too long. Props to Chef Christian Sweeney (Ig: @chefsweeney)
and his team. Perfectly cooked Steaks, great service and ambience topped off by ‘really good’ Dessert.

I don’t think I’ve heard it, but it needs to be said. Happy Hubby, Happy Life.

Chive Restaurant Continues to be Suga Endorsed!

Hubby and I visited Chive Restaurant (Ig:@chivejamaica) 3 Saturdays ago for his Restaurant hopping Birthday weekend.

Check out some of what we enjoyed here:

Chive continues to be a fully satisfying stop with their twist on International cuisine stemming from unique seasoning and added herbs, of course including Chive.

Chive Restaurant supports fellow local businesses and was a sponsor for Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection. A lucky Suga Bear, Carolyn Reid walked away with a Dinner for 2 valued at $10000 from signing up her Suga Bear Card at the gate!

Congrats Carolyn and thanks again Chive Restaurant!

HINT HINT The owner of Chive Restaurant has NEW and Exciting things coming for early 2022 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Remember you heard it from Suga first.

Stop and have a bite at Chive Restaurant this Christmas season.๐ŸŽ„

Casual, Cosy, Tastyโ€ฆ Arepa!

Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga with friend and Suga Taster, Taraja Jackson.

Arepa House is one of the new restaurants in town.

Suga stopped by with friend and Suga Taster, Taraja Jackson two Saturdays ago.

We didn’t have the classic Arepas, but we enjoyed our Chicken and Beef Bowls with their variety of Ad-ons + fresh Lemonade.
Tasty and filling. Venezuelan with a Jamaican twist๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Chicken Bowl (J$2200)
Arepa House-made Lemonade

The food is not comparable, but with Pita Grill gone, I think Arepa House fills the fast food – pick up spot void for Breakfast and Lunch in the Liguanea area.

Of course I’ll have Arepas next time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ Their Menu is posted online. #SugaSnaps

How’s the Pre-Christmas Burn Coming?! Ditch the Creamy Sauce!

Grilled Salmon with mashed potatoes and veggies from Fromage Brasserie

Filling, tasty & healthy all at the same time. Get your Pre-Christmas burn on. The Holidays are fast approaching and I’m sure we will celebrate whether we can afford to or not.

Last Sunday at Fromage Brasserie
in the The Market Place, I had the Grilled Salmon with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies.

I ditched the creamy sauce and requested a lemon sauce on the side. I didn’t get that, but the crusted almond topping was good enough for me.

#tbt to Lunch at Cellar 8 being just Stellar!

Hubby and I made an overdue visit to Cellar 8 a little over 2 weekends ago on a Saturday afternoon.

Happy to see the buzz return and the quality of food being excellent Cellar 8. Reservations are definately recommended.

Kudos to their new Executive Chef, David Wellington.

The crunchy texture of our Cauliflower florets enhanced by the flavour of the spiced orange curry sauce it was glazed with, was just right.

J$1500+tx

The C8 Mac ‘n’ Cheese is a must have! The mouth-watering pic speaks for itself.

J$1200+tx

Randy enjoyed his creamy Seafood Pasta with Shrimp, Salmon and Calamari tossed in a light cream sauce served on roasted garlic linguini. We appreciate when creamy sauces are indeed light.

J$3200+tx

I had the Honey Garlic Salmon, which was perfection. That honey garlic sauce definitely puts a different, but good spin on the taste.

J$4350+tx

Service was excellent and Bartender, Kedoo’s Mojito and Peach Bellini with Bubbly & Rum were on point!

Cellar 8 is #SugaEndorsed. Suga will return soon!

A Fantastic Stay at The Cliff Hotel by West End, Negril

The Cliff Hotel, Negril, Jamaica

TGIF! Where are you staying this weekend Suga Bears?!

We had a fantastic stay at The Cliff Hotel by West End, Negril last weekend.

Watch “A Fantastic stay at The Cliff Jamaica by West End, Negril” on YouTube here:ย 

https://youtube.com/shorts/F-q48TnIKgw?feature=share

Even though it’s not an all inclusive, their current rate is definitely value for money. Seize the opportunity before it goes back up!

The food and presentation from their Zest Restaurant was consistently excellent.

Manager, Vernon was on site everyday, quite hospitable and accommodating along with his staff.

The property was clean. Views were breathtaking. Parking was adequate, which is hard to find in Negril. Wifi was decent. The room was huge and the Smart Tv was great. Just 1 complaint…only water came in the fridge. We would appreciate 2 Red Stripes next time ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿป

The Cliff Hotel and its Zest Restaurant are #SugaEndorsed.

When Skylarking in Negril, Yuh Driva Haffi Mek 1-Stop

Miss Lily’s at Skylark Negril Beach Resort on Negril’s Seven Mile Beach!

The music, food and vibes are right everytime. The only good system is a sound system.

I enjoyed their succulent, flavourful Jerk BBQ Pork Spare Ribs with roasted plantains. Finger-licking good.

Jerk BBQ Pork Spare Ribs with roasted plantains (US$22)

Hubby, Randy enjoyed the Miss Lily’s mouth-watering Cheeseburger that was sandwiched in cocoa bread.

Miss Lily’s Cheeseburger (US$12)

Vegetarian menu and fresh Juices available too. Iย  had the refreshing Skylark Greens.

Great, speedy and pleasant service. #SugaEndorsed

For my Suga Bears overseas, be sure to check out Miss Lily’s in Soho or East Village NY & Dubai!
