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 General meals, typically of Jamaican cuisine such as Ackee and Saltfish, usually range in cost from $450-$650JMD. I love when places don’t drench your Ackee in oil. Healthy Bites is definitely a clean eating option. I am promoting healthy food today but if Fried Bammy is your choice for a side option, go for it.

You can customize your Lunch based on the sides you desire and they are open to suggestions. They are also considering Delivery.

Congratulations to the Wimbledon Champs!

PhotoGrid_1500259645229-1.png

Congratulations to the Wimbledon Champs, Garbiñe Muguruza and Roger Federer!

Muguruza won her 2nd Grand Slam title and 1st Wimbledon Title. After Venus Williams missed a few set point opportunities in the 1st set, she took full advantage of hers, then took full charge in the 2nd set to win 7-5, 6-0.

For the Gentlemen, Marin Cilic, who already has a US Open title, had a good run but didn’t meet any of the big four until the Final with Roger Federer. He called for the trainers when down a set and down 3-0 in the second, visually breaking down in tears. But the trainers didn’t do anything for him until they were called after the second set. They unwrapped his foot and gave him some pills before the 3rd set. He still wasn’t moving as well but didn’t make the Final a complete blowout, as he was able to hold serve towards the end of the set before being broken. He was beaten by Federer, 6-3, 6-1, 6-4. In an interview with the Press, he stated that he developed a blister under his foot during the Semi Final that got worse. Regardless of the blister, I think Federer would have still won. It would have probably at least gone to 4 sets but Federer is at the top of his game and I think only Nadal can challenge him at this time.

Roger Federer’s win cemented his name into history as the greatest of all time yesterday by being the Gentleman to win the most Wimbledon titles ever, finally passing the great, Pete Sampras who had 7. He has also stretched his lead for the most Grand Slam titles to 19 over Rafael Nadal’s 15 titles.

Federer also has the chance to end the year as World #1 but is happy with enjoying his victory at Wimbledon at the moment.

Garbiñe Muguruza is a Wimbledon Champ!

20170715_093757-1.jpg

1st set

Muguruza won the toss and allowed Venus to serve.
Both women held their games until late in the 1st set.
Venus had 2 break and set points when she was up 5-4, but could not convert them. She missed an easy forehand winner on the 2nd set point opportunity.
Muguruza then broke Venus to go up 6-5. She lost her 1st of 2 break points, then was able to convert the 2nd to win the 1st set 7-5.

2nd Set

Venus was broken at the start and just couldn’t recover. She had nothing left in the tank after a fatal accident, overcoming young 2017 French Open Champ, Jelena Ostapenko and the Brit, Johanna Konta.
Muguruza turned into a bulldozer and rolled over her to take the 2nd set, 6-0 and her 1st Wimbledon title.

Two years ago, Serena beat Muguruza in the Wimbledon Final and told her she would win Winbledon one day. Who knew it would be versus her sister.

Muguruza has been far from consistent in Grand Slam Tournaments but she had the privilege of being coached by vet and fellow Spaniard, Conchita Martínez in the last 2 weeks and was able to play the best tennis of her life and remain composed with more experience.

She is now the only player that has beaten both Serena and Venus Williams in a Grand Slam Final.

Congratulations Garbiñe Muguruza!

It was a pleasure to return to Jamaica Liquor Warehouse for Lunch 2 Saturdays ago and still experience good quality food and service.

Crushed Green Plantain Bruschetta with Feta Cheese – $700JMD

Their tasty, Plantain Bruschetta is a delightful starter that can be shared.

Lentil Stew with Pumpkin rice pilaf and Garlic sautéed vegetables – $1350JMD

The healthy, Lentil Stew was delish. The Pumpkin rice pilaf was dry though.

They altered the Crispy Fried Boneless Chicken Breast ($1750JMD) on the menu to a Grilled Chicken Breast for my other half, which he was satisfied with. It was served with Garlic mashed potato and sautéed vegetables.

Frozen Mint Lemonade with White Rum

Their Mint Lemonade was a Refreshing Creeper!

The Bread pudding was no Fromage Bread pudding. It was missing that gastronomic crumble on top. But it’s texture was phenomenal and it went down even smoother with the ice cream on the side. Two thumbs up!
