Sunday Brunch is back at The Jamaica Pegasus !!! Dining at The Blue Window yesterday was the perfect closing to Suga’s Birthday week, as they always make me feel right at home. Ask for Marcia when you go!

General Manager, Peter Hilary as well as Assistant Food and Beverage Manager, Mikhailla Robinson were present throughout to ensure Brunch service ran smoothly and interacted with Diners.

All Sanitary Protocols were observed. Diners sanitized before entry, all staff members were masked, the tables were adequately spaced and were set after diners were seated and we had to be served by staff at the Buffet. Chafing dishes were kept closed if no diners were ready to be served and opened towards the server. Wearing of masks by diners around the Buffet station was mandatory. #SugaSnaps

We were offered rich Jamaican Hot Chocolate and Soup first, then could go to the Buffet that offered delicious Jamaican fare in addition to the Carving station, Salad bar, Crepe/Waffle station and Dessert station. A glass of Fruit Juice was also included.

Everything was on point, but highlights for Suga were the juicy, tender Oxtail, Crackling Roasted Pork that Executive Chef, Mark Cole says is in high demand and understandably so and those delightful jelly-filled doughnuts!

Suga Tasters, Ash and Ten’s Breakdown!

Chef Bingy definitely met and even exceeded our expectations, particularly with the explosion of different flavours in relatively simple dishes. We first experienced this with Chef Bingy’s Pumpkin Chicken Soup, which Jamaicans expect in a Pumpkin soup, but with welcomed notes of coconut milk and ginger. Chef Bingy definitely defied the ‘usual’ by also adding nuts such as Almonds to her marvellous Soup.

We had ordered a Salad as well, which was deliciously enhanced by a crunchy texture from added Walnuts and Pears to the Kale. Sweet and earthy were definitely the predominant flavours!

After our very satisfying Soup and Salad experience, we recently tried Chef Bingy’s Curried Chicken, which was extremely rich and flavourful. This, served with roast and fried Breadfruit, definitely hit the spot and was reminiscent of my beloved Nanny’s cooking in a ‘dutchie’ on the cold stove. For $800JMD, along with generous slices of Avocado and Plantains, this meal was well worth it!

The personal delivery from Chef Bingy herself was also a nice touch, but if she continues cooking this way, she may be confined to the Kitchen whipping out more and more delicious soul food!

Date Night at Home with Mystic Thai During Love in the Time of Corona!

20200519_234909
Randy and Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga enjoying date night at home with Dinner delivered by Mystic Thai last Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

Throwing it back to Mystic Thai delivering to our door last week Wednesday!

That was not a dinner to eat on the couch in front of the television. It was a great opportunity for Date Night. I had to shower, wash my hair and get ready. I mean, we had to respect the rich, culinary ethnicity of what we were about to experience. We were dressed too casual, but it’s hot at home!

20200520_004736

The package traveled well. It seemed like the boxes were delivered just as how they packed them. There was no leaking or gravy stains and this was coming all the way from Montego Bay to Kingston. Why can’t bearers in Kingston get it right?

Anyhow, Date night kicked off with delish Mushroom Bamboo Shoots (USD$8) and Shrimp and Scallion (USD$10.50) Dumplings complemented well by the sauces provided with them. We had spicy, sweet, herby and soy sauce options.

We then enjoyed Rang Dang Gai (Grilled Chicken with Thai Herbs – USD$9.50) Kebab style.

The finale featured Kaeng Som (Yellow Curry) Shrimp (USD$14.50) with Garlic Naan. Their Green Thai and Red Thai Curries are best sellers, but I was going for the immune booster provided by the Turmeric in the Yellow Curry.

My only complaint was that the quantity could have been more, which I am sure they will look into when they hopefully do this again! I would also order more. We were still satisfied, but we had ZERO leftovers. The next day we were just left with the memory that no other Restaurant’s Dinner Delivery is currently on that level. You get what you pay for. Thank you so much Mystic Thai for thinking of Kingston, my taste buds thank you as well. #SugaSnaps #SugaEndorsed
