Suga’s Comments: 
Chive Restaurant continues to be #SugaEndorsed. I went with my hubby, Randy two Saturdays ago and it is certainly a pleasure each visit or even when we do takeout.

The flavours of Chive’s dishes set them apart. Their Crab Cake appetizer was divine! They used a curry for it that was not overpowering, so you could enjoy both the Crab meat, accentuated by the curry. Bravo.

The Lobster Tacos were excellent. Great serving too.

Their PESTO is RICH! We enjoyed a delish Pesto Pasta with Grilled Chicken.

Now their Mac & Cheese dishes, where you can choose a topping from Short Ribs to Shrimp is SINFULLY fantastic.

Not to mention their house made Cheesecake! Yummy with the perfect texture 👌🏾 They owe me that Tiramisu that I missed out on! 😉

Safety measures were in place and practiced as we Cope with Covid-19 together. Pay Chive Restaurant a visit or do Takeout! Definitely Value for Money.

TGIF to Jamaica Liquor Warehouse ‘s Frozen Mint Lemonade & their Safety Practices!

TGIF to Jamaica Liquor Warehouse ‘s Frozen Mint Lemonade & their team continuing to play it safe in the kitchen. Jamaica Liquor Warehouse ‘s Signature Frozen Mint Lemonade is quite a refreshing treat for just $500+tx and you can spike it!

Their team is playing it safe in the kitchen too. Kudos to them. I haven’t spied much Chefs wearing masks in the hot kitchen, so please keep it up!

As Covid is even a bigger threat to us now, I encourage you all to try and be as safe as you can this weekend. Wear your masks! Be wise and Sanitise!

Jamaica Liquor Warehouse offers pick up and you can check them to see if they are still delivering. They are #SugaEndorsed.

Suga’s Breakdown!

Suga has been craving lobster since it has been back in season. A restaurant was out of lobster last week, so why not go to an actual seafood restaurant, better yet, a new one!

Offshore Seafood Lounge facilitates social distancing with their ample rooftop dining space, whether covered or uncovered. So no need to worry about bad weather. I went when the evening just about cooled down and I could enjoy the airy seating with a city view, taking in all of Constant Spring’s new developments. Wink wink foodies!

Princess was our server and she did a great job. Attentive and pleasant throughout our stay, because we were there for hours. I blame the Bar and an excellent bartender. You know it’s hard to find a tasty, blended Piña Colada nowadays?! Even some of the hotels water it down, but you can get an authentic, rich, thick Piña Colada at Offshore Seafood Lounge.

IMG-20200802-WA0005

We were offered complimentary Lobster Head Soup as a starter, which we enjoyed and everything we ate after that too. Well seasoned, fresh seafood, rich flavours, tasty sides, satisfying portions and great presentation, all for a reasonable price. Definitely value for money.

20200801_174844
‘Flittaz’ – Fritters with flakes of salted codfish (JMD$600) and Fried Sprat served with a house pickle (JMD$650).

20200805_032848
Fish Tacos (JMD$1000)

20200803_035037
XL Shrimp served with mashed potatoes and seasoned vegetables (JMD$2300).

20200805_033901
Garlic Lobster served with one side and seasonal vegetables (JMD$2900).

For the ladies who love their pics, there is an Offshore themed painted wall with great lighting upon entry. The DJ is also quite good. They surely seem to live by their tag line, Great Atmosphere, Great Food, Great Vibe. Give them a visit if they are open for the Holiday tomorrow, or this weekend! They are #SugaEndorsed.

Suga’s Breakdown!

As Restaurants open up and we slowly get back to a new normal, this may be the last review for the series of ‘During Love in the Time of Corona’. Not to worry though, there is so much more to expect from Suga Lifestyle! Thanks so much for enjoying the series with me. So Suga had to add an outdoor, seaside dining experience to the series and of course, my Birthday escapades! I am still celebrating! Geminis rule!

Christopher’s at Hermosa Cove is not fully open as yet, but you can call ahead to set a time with Chef Conroy Arnold for the time you would like to visit. In the mean time, Chef Arnold a.k.a Stuttering Chef has been busy open fire cooking by the nearby, Broken Rudder Beach Bar and Grill!

Team Gandy (Gabby and Randy)’s Piña Colada and Hummingbird Blended Drinks from Broken Rudder

My hubby, Randy and I got to the beach early and we were all by ourselves. Hermosa Cove is quite a large property, so even though we knew other persons were there, they were far away. We had the Broken Rudder Beach Bar bring down Blended Drinks to us and by about 2pm we had our open fire cooked Pizzas!

20200616_151924
Open fire cooked Chicken and Vegetable thin crust Pizza!

We had 8″ thin crust Pizzas with Chicken and Vegetables that we thoroughly enjoyed. You know Stuttering Chef is Farm to Table, so imagine freshly cooked Okra and Mushrooms on your Pizza, plus Carrot with a hint of sweetness and more! Stimulating.

When we decided to have drinks by the Bar itself, we saw a group of persons that were celebrating the Birthday of a young one. It was truly impressive to see how fast Stuttering Chef fired up their Burgers, Hot Dogs and other requests without a hitch. Efficiency at its best. The other members of staff were courteous and attentive as well.

The Broken Rudder Beach Bar and Grill at Hermosa Cove is open and ready for you to join them.

TGIF to Drinks last Weekend by the Poolside Bar at The Jamaica Pegasus!

20200605_070639
Kareem Tomlinson, Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga, Michael Campbell and Jhanille Brooks enjoying Drinks by the Poolside Bar at The Jamaica Pegasus last Saturday, May 30, 2020.

I finally got a few friends to come and have some drinks with me in the open air by the Poolside Bar at The Jamaica Pegasus!

We observed social distancing as much as possible, our waitress was attentive and wore her mask and we wore ours to enter and leave. They gave us cute poolside table lamps too!

The Poolside Bar was actually closed a little earlier that day, but they had no issues facilitating our preference to be in open air and brought drinks down to us from The Blend Bar upstairs.

It was surely a nostalgic feeling to pour Drinks at a bar and ask my friends to pass the ice bucket with their clean hands. Then drink with just enough time to make curfew 😉 As Restaurants and Bars slowly start to reopen, thanks to The Jamaica Pegasus for never closing their doors with all necessary protocols observed, remaining Kingston’s preferred Hotel. We appreciate you👌🏾🍻 #SugaSnaps #SugaEndorsed

Throwback Thursday to Brunch at Shooters Waterfront!

Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga at Shooters Waterfront on October 20, 2019.

Suga’s got more for you to add to your Post Covid-19 Bucket List. I’m throwing it back to a brunch spread that I thoroughly enjoyed at Shooters Waterfront last October. The live music was entertaining too.
Shooters was offering delivery and takeaway/curbside pick ups, but are now closed and look forward to reopening when the COVID-19 curve flattens.
Here are a few teasers until they reopen!
