TGIF to Mouth-Watering, Delicious Bread Pudding from The Bread Pudding Factory!

20200803_034616

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of indulging in mouth-watering, delicious Bread Pudding from The Bread Pudding Factory!

The Bread Pudding Factory opened in June of this year, a pivoting act around Covid-19 by Nikeisha Reynolds out of her home in Linstead, with the intention of acquiring a location. So the delicious Bread Puddings are currently available by delivery only.

You have the options of Rum & Raisin, Coconut Pineapple Upside Down, Chocolate Chip with Salted Caramel and the Plain Surprise.

Suga tried all flavours except for the Coconut Pineapple Upside Down. Although I love a Caramel crumble on top, they were all good! They had the right ratio of moisture to firmness and the flavours were really distinct. It was hard to determine, but the Chocolate Chip with salted caramel was my favourite.

Nikeisha, foodie turned baker, believes bread is a Jamaican staple that comforts the soul. She thinks it is quite versatile to use in the kitchen and so of course, she has other recipes for more flavours up her sleeve!

The cost for a mixed box of 4 is $2200JMD with an additional cost of $350JMD for delivery. Payment is COD or via Online Transfer. Order yours! The Bread Pudding Factory is #SugaEndorsed.

Suga Taster, Randy had Rainforest Seafoods’ NEW Poke Bowl for Lunch!

20200712_213643

Last Tuesday, Suga Taster, Randy Burgess ordered Rainforest Seafoods’ NEW Tuna Poke Bowl for Lunch. He thought it was definitely filling, as it had a healthy serving of Veggies: carrot, cucumber, radish, snow peas and Edamame. Additionally, it had a good serving size of Tuna and sticky Sushi Rice. The Tuna was spicy since it was drizzled with Sriracha sauce, but the Veggies cooled down the palate and everything was fresh!

20200712_213714

Was it Value for Money?

Randy thought the cost was way too much with delivery, but tasted good. By ordering through the Pekkish App, the Tuna Poke Bowl costed $1960JMD, but $2754.00JMD when delivery and service charges were added.

Any Suggestions for Rainforest Seafoods?

Suga Taster, Randy would love to see a Salad option with no rice and an option to pick up at the Crossroads branch.

Rainforest Seafoods also offers Smoked and Cooked Salmon Poke Bowls, Raw and Cooked Rolls, Sushi Platters and Bento Boxes (Japanese Lunch Boxes)  exclusively through Pekkish Jamaica in Kingston for delivery and in Montego Bay at the Seafood Market, which offers Free Delivery.

GCG Events Launches ReadiGourmet, their Gourmet Meals for Lunch or Dinner Delivered to You!

20200701_070207

Tired of Cooking? GCG Events is navigating their way out of Covid 19 with ReadiGourmet, offering you their Gourmet, restaurant quality meals for Lunch or Dinner, at home or the office! They will be sharing the full Menu and prices soon, but Suga can give you a sneak peek from my taster.

You can start things off with their delish Caesar Salad with Shrimp, topped with Croutons and Parmesan Cheese that will be available in various sizes, 8 oz, 12 oz and 24 oz.

IMG-20200626-WA0023

Parmesan cheese is one of my faves and healthier. I really appreciated having it in my salad versus a fatty, cliché cheddar. Of course, if you want to go completely healthy, you can have Jerked Chicken instead of the shrimps, which are high in cholesterol. Other options for Salads will also be available.

20200628_194405

I then had Grilled Chicken Breast topped with a creamy sun-dried tomato sauce served with rice and peas and fresh sauteed garden vegetables.

They did well with the Chicken breast. It wasn’t dry, even when reheated in the oven following their given instructions. It was well seasoned and flavourful with the sauce. Other side options such as mashed potato, white rice, black bean rice and almond rice should be available.

Grilled Filet of Salmon, Pan seared Snapper Filet, Beef Filet, Sandwiches and Dessert Options will be available too!

I finished things off with some of their tasty Fresh Fruit Salad.

Keep up with GCG Events and try ReadiGourmet! They are in Kingston and Montego Bay. Their food and service is Simply Outstanding and never disappoints.

Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga with Husband, Randy Burgess.

Mystic Thai, the restaurant with the Best Ethnic cuisine in Jamaica located in Montego Bay, came to Kingston again last Friday with Suga’s Birthday Gift!

Owner, Mrs. Kareena Mahbubani who usually has such a warm and regal presence in the Restaurant makes me feel at home whenever I visit and mentioned she feels happy when I am happy. Kareena believes in and delivers consistently high quality customer service, sees value in her customers and I truly felt honoured and appreciated. Thanks Kareena! #SugaSnaps

Hubby, Randy and I thoroughly enjoyed two dishes that we wouldn’t readily select fron the menu. It just shows that everything is good! With a mixture of Asian and Thai cuisine, Mystic Thai has quite a diverse menu.

We had Panang Fish Curry Thai, where the Panang curry is thick and peanut based, giving the Fish a unique, rich, authentic flavour.

20200630_054351
Dal Tadka (Lentil)

We also had Dal Tadka (Lentil) from their Indian menu. It was fantastic! Full of flavour. We enjoyed both dishes with Jasmine rice and my favourite side, Garlic naan.

Suga’s Breakdown!

Waterfalls Catering, known for hosting weddings and other functions is now serving Lunch!

I was happy to hear I could call in my order and pick up my lunch from a central, convenient location.

They were pleasant and accommodating over the phone and my lunch was boxed and waiting for me when I went to pick up.

Their lunches go for a reasonable cost of $750JMD with a sufficient serving, giving value for money. Soup is about $200JMD for a Small cup and $500JMD for Large.

Guess what?! Their menu is posted online too! More restaurants need to do that. It IS 2020. You have the option of ordering online as well for pick up or delivery.

Their menu is a short list, but with the standard meat options to choose quickly and easily from.

I ordered the Jerked Chicken (asked for no gravy) with steamed vegetables and rice and peas. Quite a decent, tasty meal. Great picker-upper.

During Love in the Time of Corona, EITS Cafe has been offering Door Step Dining. There are usually two Soup options and six Meal options, in addition to some fun treats such as Pesto, Herb Butter and Cookies.

20200418_202537

There are also refreshing and simple Salads. There are suggested combinations and an option to build your own Salad, which is what I ordered.

20200418_202521

There are quite a few options you can choose from, and part of the fun is switching it up so that you’re not having the same Salad every day.

The Salads are fresh and tasty🙌🏾

SUGA TASTER, KIMBERLY NESBETH BATTLES COVID CRAVINGS AND GOES PLANT-BASED!

Do you remember that Kimberly’s favourite dish is Smoked Pork Chops?! Let’s see how she enjoyed a plant-based meal from The Plantry!

Suga Taster, Kimmy’s Breakdown!

During Love in the Time of Corona, many of us bought snacks we know we should stay away from, then binge ate them. Me? GUILTY!

After one week of this I was craving something healthy, but different. THE PLANTRY had been popping up on my Instagram and I took this opportunity to give them a try.

Their plant-based food options change weekly. Soups, salads, main dishes and sweet treats. You order and pay online, which helps significantly with reducing human interaction, and the food can be delivered or you can pick it up.

I ordered on Instagram, received an email with the invoice and made payment via squareup.com.

The menu was titled, ‘An Ode to Mexico’ the day that I ordered.

For JMD $1400, I got a small Split Pea Soup and Prickly Salad, a Nopales (type of cactus) Burrito, Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn) and Non-Dairy Mango Ice cream. A starter, main course and dessert for $1,400! Value for money already.

I decided to pick up the order myself because I needed a little drive out after watching too much Corona news. I was promised it would be ready at noon. I got there at 1pm and it still wasn’t ready. For damage control she made me a small Jerked Jackfruit plus Bean Wrap with fresh Mango Chutney. It was so tasty that I actually stopped half way so I could give the other half to my boyfriend. All of a sudden, instead of anxiously waiting I was patiently and excitedly anticipating receiving my order.

At 2pm I was delving into my meal, so apologies, but no pics. The Soup, Salad, Elote and Burrito were DIVINE! Tasty, flavourful and filling!
So good I would definitely order again, but do delivery instead and plan for the delay.

What happened to the Ice-cream? The Ice-cream was not ready until two days later. Smooth and refreshing; as sweet as the perfect mango.

If you’re in office and still tied to a restricted Lunch time, this may not be for you. If you’re working from home, THE PLANTRY is definitely worth your time. Just mentally prepare for a possibly long wait.

Say Yes to Fresh and Support our Local Farmers

20200412_230936

Our Tourism sector is at an all time low, so our farmers have not been able to sell their produce to hotels. The Government of Jamaica has been assisting our farmers to market their produce. According to the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries made an immediate injection of $240 million for the purchase of excess produce from farmers! #SugaSnaps

RADA is currently active in the fields identifying farmers with excess produce. Trade Winds Citrus in Bog Walk, St. Catherine pioneered this charge by utilizing their excess produce of tomatoes in the National School Feeding Programme.

Bellefield Restaurant and Bar in Montego Bay not only has Lunch Specials, Curbside Pick up and Delivery, but a commendable, hassle free service, marketing fresh produce in ‘Bellefield Curbside Bundles’ to support our local farmers who can no longer sell at the market or to the hotels. Curbside Bundles also include value packs from Best Dressed Chicken!
