Suga has been celebrating her Birthday ALL Month long. JUNE, the month when we can go back outside, is definitely worth celebrating!

I had to make a stop Jamaica Liquor Warehouse for a little Birthday treat. Thank you! 💖

I had their house faves, the Loaded Fries w/ Tomatoes, Onions & Cheese ($1000JMD+tx), Waffles w/ Crispy Chicken & spicy Maple Syrup ($1500JMD+tx) – one of the Best around town and their Frozen Mint Lemonade ($500JMD+tx).

Suga’s Breakdown!

During Love In The Time of Corona, Suga and hubby, Randy Burgess brunched outside! As restaurants slowly start to reopen, we jumped at the opportunity to try The Rib Kage Grill located in Sovereign North and kick-start Suga’s Birthday week as well.

Still taking precautions, we made reservations for their opening time at 11:30am and we were their first and only diners at that time, where everything was clean and spotless. We only saw a family pick up a take-out order.

Mandella was our waiter and the service was superb from we entered until we left. We appreciated Mandella. Another positive coming out of Corona is the extra effort to offer great customer service and for customers to be pleasant and thankful on the receiving end as well. I hope it lasts!

I don’t eat Pork often, but I have been craving their Crispy Pork Belly Waffles since they posted it. So I definitely ordered that, Randy ordered the Korean Chicken and Waffles and we shared the Smoky Ackee and Tostones, which was a tasty starter.

Smoky Ackee and Tostones ($1200JMD) – Crunchy twice fried Green Plantain topped with Ackee and Smoked Herring.

Crispy Pork Belly does not have much meat if any, but I would have liked if the few bits I had were more tender with melt-in-your-mouth fat after I got past the tasty, crispy char. My waffles were crisp, but I wanted them to be a bit more fluffy in the middle. So I was slightly disappointed, but it was filling and I was still able to enjoy it.

Crispy Pork Belly Waffles ($1650JMD+tx) – Vietnamese Crispy Pork Belly with Waffles *There was no Green Papaya Salad as the menu stated.

Randy’s Waffles were perfect. Stick to what you know! Golden brown with a huge serving of delish Korean style Fried Chicken. Mandella also enthusiastically offered us some freshly whipped cream on the side.

Korean Chicken and Waffles ($1650JMD +tx) – Crispy Belgian Waffles with Korean Style Fried Chicken and Cucumber Kimchee.

Of course we had to drink while we brunched! We had the refreshing Dirty Mojito and Lychee Lemongrass Freeze Cocktails. Cheers!

Lucky Strike Lounge for the Tasty Category for RWJ!

20151106_203159

The Restaurant Week Ambassador Lyme was held last Friday evening and Suga got to Dig In and preview what is coming for Restaurant Week.

For Appetizers, their Deep fried Mac and Cheese balls with codfish drizzled with a Tamarind glaze is tasty and has an interesting sweet aftertaste.

Entrées that look like winners are the Chimichanga (Slivers of jerked pork wrapped in a warm tortilla served with guacamole, salsa and sour cream) and their famous Fried Chicken and Waffles, tender finger grips on fresh Belgian Waffles! Yum!

Note that the Chef loves to make things spicy so that Jerked pork may be hot hot hot like their Seafood bowl that they serve on Wednesday nights.

For Dessert they have Cuban Bread Pudding served with a warm coffee caramel that I hear is quite small in size and more Waffles! A warm Belgian waffle served with your choice ice-cream topped with a warm fruit compote.

So Dig In at Lucky Strike for the Tasty Category, costing $1850JMD (Beverages, G.C.T and Gratuity not included). You may choose any one Appetizer, Entrée and Dessert along with your salad.
