Last Friday, Food Trucks of Jamaica made their way behind NCB Twin Towers at 2 1/2 Kensington Crescent off Oxford Road. They served lunch from 11:30am to 3:30pm.
This was their menu!
Suga Taster, Stephen Greig visited the Food Truck last Friday at 1:45pm and reported that there was no line to my surprise. He said customer service was average, but quick.
He had the Chicken and Jerked Sausage Basil Pesto Alfredo Penne ($1300JMD) and thought that there was more Sausage than Chicken and it lacked spice. However, the Pasta was well cooked, the sauce was creamy and cheesy with just the right amount of parsley and portions were more than sufficient, so the meal was value for money.
Kudos to Food Trucks of Jamaica for serving their food in a biodegradable box.

Healthy Bites is located at a house in Trafalgar Park, close to NCB Atrium where you can pick up your Lunch.
Vegetarian meals such as Lentil Stew and other meals, typically of Jamaican cuisine such as Ackee and Saltfish, usually range in cost from $500-$700JMD. The meals come with a natural, home-made juice too. Cane juice is used instead of added sugar. Sugarcane juice reduces bad cholesterol levels in the body and has natural sugars. However, still ensure that you are within your limits of sugar intake for the day if you choose to drink juice and not water.
Note that the safe amount of sugar to consume each day is as follows:
Men: 150 calories per day (37.5g or 9 tsp.)
Women: 100 calories per day (25g or 6 tsp.)
You can customize your Lunch based on the sides you desire and they are open to suggestions. They also Deliver!

Mike’s Supper Club at The Trident Hotel had spectacular service and ambience enhanced by rhythmic live jazz, where the band used Trident’s one of a kind Ferrari red 1917 Steinway baby grand piano. Some of the best voices in world, jazz and bop music have left their nightly signature on it.
Beverages were grand, but I can’t say the same about their dishes.
We started things off with Pumpkin Soup and a Goat Cheese Salad. The Pumpkin Soup was probably the largest dish of the night.
The Goat Cheese Salad was quite tasty and flavourful, but our entrees followed and disappointed in that aspect and more. We had the Rack of Lamb and Surf n Turf. Both dishes were extremely small servings. In addition to an already exorbitant cost of US$50 for the Surf and Turf, sides of Vegetables and Starches were additional for US$3 and $US6 respectively before tax and service charge.
To add to the disappointment of small servings, even though our meats were medium rare as requested, the Lamb and Beef lacked proper seasoning and flavour.
The food may not have been value for money, but it was certainly a pleasurable experience.
