Valentine’s Day Dinner at Cellar 8!

20200217_124305_0000

Cellar 8 was the place Suga’s husband, Randy chose for the Valentine’s Day date!

He loved their menu, also endorsed by Suga and wanted to avoid places that felt too crowded.

Cellar 8 seemed to manage an expected heavy flow of diners for the occasion well by having two seatings for the night, 6pm and 9pm. 6pm was a bit too early for a Friday evening, so we appreciate being accommodated for 7pm.

From the looks of it, appetizer servings seemed small, but we came out on top with the Chicken Marsala Kebab served over a mixed green salad and the creamy Seafood Bisque.

Randy’s cut of Steak could have been bigger, but it was cooked to medium rare perfection and I thoroughly enjoyed my Seafood Thermidor.

Their Blackforest Cake and house made Gelato trio were a sweet ending to the evening.

With regards to cost, it was the usual high end price compared to if you chose from their regular menu, racking up a bill of about JA$20,000 for two if you ordered an additional beverage. Perhaps they could offer a Valentine’s Day special next year.

As a part of the earlier set of diners, service was managed relatively well. If there was any delay, we were made aware right away. The food was delectable and the ambience suited the occasion. Loved the brawta photo on the way out! Cellar 8, thanks for a memorable evening.

XoXo, Suga

Suga’s Top 6 picks to have Dinner for Valentine’s Day

EITS Cafe will be featuring a special a la carte menu from 12noon to 4pm and a Valentine’s Dinner Buffet from 5pm to 8pm. Be sure to RSVP because space is limited!

Suga recommends you celebrate love in the mountains if you get the Friday off or get to leave work early. Such a fresh, cool, calm atmosphere.

2. Sugar Mill Restaurant

20200213_055922

The Sugar Mill Restaurant by Half Moon, Montego Bay has the perfect ambience for Valentine’s Day Dinner. I am not sure if they have any special menu for the day, but if you go, be sure to ask for your local rate and enjoy.

It is the best restaurant in Jamaica and guaranteed value for money.

3. The Blue Window Restaurant at the Jamaica Pegasus

The Blue Window Restaurant has quite an eye-catching menu and they aim to please with added entertainment. Even their Island Jerk Chicken Salad looks good. But how do you choose between that and the Spicy Curry Shrimp with whipped saltfish?! Make sure you order both and feed each other. I would also definitely have their Surf & Turf.

4. Chive Restaurant

One of my faves, Chive restaurant is offering a 4-Course Valentine’s menu for Friday AND Saturday. Their menu looks fantastic, especially that chive style Bouillabaise! Be sure to make your reservations, as seating is limited.

5. Cellar 8 Wine Bar

Cellar 8 is offering a glass of Prosecco with dinner and their dishes are usually delicious. The C8 Seafood Thermidor looks like the winner to me.

Suga Taster, Kim takes her Sushi craving to Atlanta!

Suga Taster, Kim’s Breakdown!

With an environmentalist boyfriend, travelling for me means the zoo is a must, and a full day at the zoo always leaves us hungry and wanting to sit and enjoy a satisfying meal. After a splendid day at Zoo Atlanta, I consulted the reliable TripAdvisor and looked for the top ten restaurants nearby. Eight Sushi Lounge had great reviews so it was an easy choice. After we figured out it was valet parking only, we were smooth sailing.

20200128_064318

This Japanese restaurant was put together with an interesting marriage of the southern heavy wooden décor and bold ultra modern Japanese accents and accessories. We told our waiter this was our first time and he excitedly and knowledgeably guided us through the menu. We ordered the Tuna Crisp appetizer, the #Hashtag roll, Windmill roll, Explosion roll and Langoustine roll. This was our first time having pressed rolls.

The flavour combinations were so bold that we had to take the time to really savour each roll, despite wanting to gobble it all down. Everything was so tasty and exhilarating!

I don’t know if you’ve spotted a trend with my reviews, but of course we had dessert! We had the Matcha Cheesecake, Homemade Bread Pudding with ice cream and the Chocolate Pudding.

20200128_064635

The sweet finale was definitely pleasurable, but the Sushi is what we will be heading back to indulge in once again! This was truly an delightful dining experience.

Suga’s Breakdown!

The Terrace continues to be one of the few dependable fine dining restaurants in Jamaica. The quality of the food remains top-notch. The service is up there too, but the waiters could loosen up a little. Though professional, they could be more pleasant and use a bit of charm.

The Terrace has a quiet setting with ambience ideal for conversation as we enjoyed our courses.

Where to Indulge in Juicy Steak before the New Year!

20191231_102015
Sizzling Ribeye Steak recommended for two ($8500JMD): Grilled and served on a sizzling cast iron pan, finished with demi-glaze, truffle butter and mashed potatoes.

Need to indulge in a juicy Ribeye Steak before the New Year? Chef Alex D-Great has left Steak House on the Verandah in Devon House, but not to worry, Chef Jermaine Erskine and his team of two other Chefs have taken over in fine fashion.

I was a bit worried since I was treating my husband for his Birthday dinner on December 3rd, but I had friends who had gone recently and said the standard was still high. I am in total agreement. Service was commendable, the Ribeye that we shared was cooked to order, medium rare perfection and our sautéed Escargot starter in pesto cream and a puff pastry shell was delicious as well.
