Suga Taster, Stephen’s Visit to Blue Brews Bistro on the Culinary Trail!

A month ago, Suga Taster, Stephen Greig ventured up to the cool Blue Mountains on a Sunday, with visiting San Francisco based brother and fam to check out the fairly new, Blue Brews Bistro (Ig: @bluebrewsbistro) in Holywell National Park.

Here’s what he had to say!

The drive was relaxing with majestic views of the Blue Mountains and fresh air to open the appetite along the way.

Upon arrival at Holywell Park, we were directed to Blue Brews Bistro, which had quite a few patrons by 11am. I would recommend that you make a reservation in advance via their email if you have a large party. Kudos to Owner/Manager Jovan Yapp for his hospitality, accommodating our party of 6. The staff were also friendly and attentive.

The menu expectedly had variations of your favourite Blue Mountain Coffee, Burgers, Hot Dogs and Pastries. It was interesting to see that they had non-bistro fare including smoked Pork Chops, Steak & Fried Chicken.

Our party had Pumpkin Soup, Burgers with seasoned fries and more traditional Breakfast fare such as Eggs and Bacon.

We tried their “Brookie” for Dessert, a merger of a Cookie and Brownie along with fresh Lemongrass Lemonade too.

The food was satisfactory, but you really go for the drive and experience. Also, the view and the cool, salubrious surroundings, where you can even go for a walk around the park while waiting.
The park museum is directly above the  restaurant, so do check it out.

There wasn’t any traditional Jamaican cuisine offered, so if there was a recommendation, it would be to really have a more Jamaican experience. Definitely worth a visit though. Big up Blue Brews Bistro.

Suga’s Breakdown: 

Coppers transitions from a cosy, casual outdoor setting to fine dining on the inside. The walls are adorned with fine art and your wine selection, then you’re seated with quality tableware.

Our server, Ovando was quite professional and attentive. It was New Year’s Eve, so we were also politely encouraged to select from their party favour offerings with a small contribution and to ring in the new year with them. The music was great, but we had other plans and we were extremely satisfied with our last meal of 2021.

For starters we had Cabernet Braised Oxtail Crisp and Calamari Ripieni. The Oxtail Crisp was divine. It was wine braised deboned Oxtail served in a warm, flaky puff pastry shell. The Oxtail was well seasoned and tender. While the Calamari Ripieni was definitely a different way to have Calamari! It was stuffed Calamari, lightly sauteed in Chardonnay, tomato sauce. Delicious.

Cabernet Braised Oxtail Crisp (J$2450p

We thoroughly enjoyed our Entrees, Lobster Thermidor, that was simmered in a copper pot of spices and a three cheese creamy béchamel. Also, Chargrilled Frenched Lamb Chops soaked in port glaze and caramelized on the grill.

We opted out of Dessert that we’ve had there before, but great way to end the year, dinner left us cheesing from ear to ear.

TGIF! Did You Earn It?! Pop by Pop Lab Confections!

Two weeks ago Suga was delighted to try new treats by Pop Lab Confections (Ig: @poplabconfections) on Red Hills Road.

Their scrumptious Apple Pie, tasty Chocolate Chip Cookies, and delish Oreo Bread Pudding lit up my taste buds! They cater!

The Popsicles had a range of super fun flavours such as Chocolate Covered Cheesecake pops, Passion Mango & Piña Colada. All balanced flavours, nothing overpowering.

They are one of my new favourites for sweet treats and looking forward to having them on the next Suga Show 😉!

Excellent service, great packaging and store layout with an Artisan shelf too. Pop by Pop Lab Confections this weekend! #SugaEndorsed
