Roe has expanded, but have they kept up their good standard?

After visiting Roe a few months ago, last night I was delighted to see that they have expanded! Their previous space used to be comparable to the Burger King in Manor Park. But now they have expanded their indoor seating including Hibachi-style and their decor is fabulous, giving you a Manhattan, Sex and the City kind of feeling. However, the standard of service has already slipped with slow service, inattentive staff and an error with one of the orders. I was there for a Birthday celebration, but the Birthday girl felt that the other birthday celebration seemed to have gotten more attention that night. She should never have felt that way.

I noticed the menu had a few new items. The food took a little while to arrive, perhaps since they had a full house. It was alright, no CranWata WOW! but we enjoyed it nonetheless.

A suggestion for not only Roe, but for other restaurants when taking reservations, is to ask if it is a special occasion, so even though good service is always expected, they can be even more prepared to please. They should also think, what could these diners want next? For instance, if we provide cake or cupcakes to be shared, do not let us have to ask for plates and forks. The waitresses also need to smile, they didn’t even smeyze. So some improvement needed in their service and speed.

Why is this Staple Greek Item not on Opa Greek Restaurant & Lounge’s Menu?

CHICKEN SOUVLAKI –

It seems so simple. Souvlaki may be made with meats such as beef, lamb, pork and fish as well. Since the costs of their dishes are so high, perhaps they should consider putting this one on the menu.

See the recipe for Chicken Souvlaki below:

 

 

Ingredients

7 Chicken Breast

Marinade

4 tablespoon – Olive Oil

1 tablespoon – Oregano

1 teaspoon – Garlic Powder

1/2 teaspoon – Garlic Salt

1/3 teaspoon – Onion powder

1 pinch – Pepper

3 medium – Lemon juice

1 pinch – Thyme

1 pinch – Rosemary

1 teaspoon – Paprika

1 dash – Bay Leaves

Directions

1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a blender. Then cut the chicken into little 1 inch pieces. Marinade for an hour.

2. Add the meat to the skewers.

3. Heat the pan with olive oil

4. Add the skewers and cook about 3-4 mins each side (depends on the meat)

5. Once done, remove, and serve with rice.

Recipe found with my android.

Dracula Transformation Needed at 24 Seven Cafe, The Jamaica Pegasus

I’ve heard the Paninis at 24 Seven Cafe at The Jamaica Pegasus are not that good, but I usually enjoy the majority of other items on the menu so decided to give it a try last Saturday night.

As usual, the service was on point. I ordered the Chicken Pesto Panini and got it quickly. I took a huge bite into it and could hardly get my teeth in and out. The bread was so tough and hard to cut into. I either needed a steak knife or Dracula teeth. The chicken breast was slightly overcooked or probably reheated with the bread because it was not tender. Thankfully the pesto sauce was tasty and the only positive of the meal, but did not make up for the fact that it costed $1050JMD including tax. Definitely not worth it. For now, stick to the Wraps and wheel and come again with those Paninis.

It’s over. German Glory for the World Cup!

Germany gained their 4th star yesterday in a stunning match against Argentina in the World Cup 2014 finals staged at the historic, Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Though scoreless on both sides for full-time, it was a highly contested match all the way through. It was substitute, Mario Gotze in the 112th minute of extra time who made it happen for Germany, scoring a fantastic goal to win 1-0 aka One Love, a hot Bob Marley, as Jamaicans would say.

Congrats to the Germans! Russia 2018 next!

SuGa Lifestyle would like to thank all its readers, especially over the past few weeks from as far as Spain, Brazil, Bulgaria, Israel, Italy and India and the faithful readers from Canada, Barbados, UK, Cayman and ofcourse, Jamaica.  Stay tuned for more things to come in this sizzlin’ Summer.

All Roads Lead to Maracana today! Who will realise the Maracana Dream?

So many upsets, so many matches gone into overtime and penalty shoot outs. The quality of this World Cup in Brazil has been outstanding. Unfortunately the hosts were devastated in the semifinals and failed to make it to Maracana. But until the next 4 years, we are left with only today to watch the Greatest Show on Earth.
