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.

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

One of the Best Spots for Breakfast in Kingston!

Café el Centro on Hillcrest Avenue, Kingston

Throwing it back to having Breakfast at one of the best spots in Kingston last Saturday, Café el Centro!

Café el Centro on Hillcrest Avenue, Kingston is famous for their mouthwatering Steaks and last Saturday they offered their Steak and Eggs special that hubby couldn’t miss.

My healthy week started from Saturday! I opted for Eggs Benedict with spinach and a Smoked Marlin Salad.

The Steak was cooked to medium rare perfection, the Eggs Benedict was delish and the Smoked Marlin Salad was stacked to my satisfaction.

Smoked Marlin Salad served with a Vinaigrette

Happy Monday! Start the week off right and check out the NEW Veganly Vegetarian Cafe !

They just opened last Monday & Suga visited last Thursday in their compact, cosy spot tucked away in Seymour Park Business Complex on Old Hope Road.

Hospitable Owner, Nadene McKay wasn’t joking when she said her Ackee Patty sells like hot bread, then it end up tyin’ me like a good stew peas.

Of course the crust is healthy, made of Amaranth, Cornmeal and Spelt Flour. Also, I love when Ackee has a little seasoning and isn’t oily.

I had tasty, Vegetable Lentil Soup to round it off as a meal and I was fully satisfied. (Total spent: J$850)

Can’t wait to try one of Veganly Vegetarian Cafe’s hot meals soon!

Menu changes daily and they have natural Juices, Wraps and Salads too.

Suga Taster, Taraja does Traditional Thai in NYC!

Suga Taster, Taraja Jackson with friend, Darya Hall at Thai Villa, NYC.

A few weeks ago, Suga Taster, Taraja Jackson was in foodie heaven at Thai Villa, a traditional and unique Thai Restaurant in the stylish city of Manhattan, NYC.

Located on 5 E 19th St, New York,
the stylish space with dark-wood accents and ornate fixtures had an hour wait time since they had no reservations.

Taraja hopped down to a local rooftop bar and had Cocktails, then was called by the courteous staff of Thai Villa, who informed them that they were ready for their dinner party.

They were seated at the upper level, which overlooked the main restaurant. The ambience was perfect.

Don’t you just love Authentic Thai Cuisine?!

Suga Taster, Taraja enjoyed Chicken Satay, Pla Muk Tod (Fried turmeric coconut Calamari), Soft Shell Crab Mango Salad, Pad Thai (Shrimp, Rice noodles, bean sprouts, scallions, red onion, egg and peanuts. Gluten free), Ped Ron (Crispy Five Spice Duck) and Moo-Obb Nam Puaung Entree (Grilled marinated Pork).

Chicken Satay – Grilled marinated chicken on skewers, served with peanut sauce, cucumber relish, and grilled brioche.
Pla Muk Tod – Fried turmeric coconut Calamari. Crispy fried Calamari served with roasted bell pepper-peanut vinaigrette dipping sauce.
Soft Shell Crab Mango Salad – Shredded Mango, Peanuts, Coconut Flakes, Red Onion and Cilantro with Thai Chili-Lime Dressing.
Pad Thai (Shrimp, Rice noodles, bean sprouts, scallions, red onion, egg and peanuts. Gluten free)
Ped Ron (Crispy Five Spice Duck) – Deep Fried Half Duck, Chinese Broccoli, Served with Honey-Soy-Bouquetiere Dressing.
Moo-Obb Nam Puaung Entree (Grilled marinated Pork) with honey-soy glazed, baby bok choy served with coconut sticky rice.

Her overall experience was great, the food came out quickly and they shared the Appetizers which were quite filling. Both the Appetizers and Entrees were absolutely delicious at affordable prices and the service was on point! Suga Taster, Taraja gives them ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!

#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.

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.
