Suga’s Breakdown:

Thatched roofs, bamboo, wooden tables and stools along with courteous staff, nestled in the lush greenery of the Serengeti Zoo, Chillin’ provided a comfortable setting to have dinner with my husband, Randy last Saturday night.

Chillin’ Restaurant emerged as a hot spot over the holidays and seems suitable for teens and up.

When I saw Murray’s Curry Goat on the menu, I instantly knew the owners of Murray’s Fish and Jerk Hut, Clarendon have come to town! It kicked my senses into high gear.

Appetizers

I instantly ordered the Murray’s Curry Goat and Roti Waffle bites.

Murray’s Curry Goat and Roti Waffle bites ($1000JMD) – Jamaican curried goat and mixed leaves on a bed of roti waffles.

The Curry Goat was deboned, tender, juicy and spicy complemented by veggies and a soft Roti Waffle to cool things down.

Salads, Chicken Strips, Wings, Wontons, and Corn-on-the-Cob are other Appetizers on the menu ranging from $900JMD to $1600JMD.

There are also attractive group platters ranging from $2500-$3600JMD with options of healthy servings of Jerked meat, Wontons, Corn and Wings with a variety of sauces.

Main Dishes

20190122_123955
Serengeti Grilled Barbeque Chicken ($1200JMD) – Chicken quarter grilled and brushed with Chillin’s sticky House Barbeque Sauce, served with sautéed vegetables and any select side. Randy chose mashed potatoes.
20190119_214737
Healthy, Almond and Pineapple crusted Salmon ($2600JMD) – Cast iron toasted almond with oven-roasted pineapple crusted Atlantic Salmon served with sautéed vegetables and my chosen side of sweet potato croquettes.

Our mains were presented attractively in healthy portions, both well cooked and quite savoury. That Chillin’s sticky House Barbeque Sauce is one for the recipe books.

Murray’s popular, seasoned to perfection Curried Goat, Smoked Pork Chop, Peppa Shrimp and Braised Oxtail are other succulent main items on the menu.

Chillin’ Restaurant and Bar seems like the perfect place to have a bite and pregame before a night out or the place to have a savoury, well cooked and seasoned meal accompanied by the sound of good music.

Chillin’ Restaurant is #SugaEndorsed.

Suga’s Breakdown:

Tamarind Continental, Saffron and Tamarind Indian all fall under the same umbrella, however Tamarind Continental’s menu offers cuisines other than Indian as its name suggests.

If you are dining at Tamarind Indian,  you have the luxury of ordering from Tamarand Continental that is 2 doors away and vice versa. I wanted a healthy dish with a light sauce, so I ordered from the Tamarand Continental menu, while my husband ordered from the Tamarind Indian menu.

The Staff were courteous and attentive. Service was within reasonable time and we enjoyed our meals. I had the Cilantro lime Chicken, which was quite tasty.

I was pleased to see that Tamarind Cuisine continues to serve dinner with a high standard and I look forward to returning. Tamarind cuisine is suited for family outings, dinner dates and business meetings. #SugaEndorsed

Eat a Tasty, Healthy Lunch from the Easy Diet Store

I ordered my healthy lunch last week Thursday for delivery from The Easy Diet Store. They were courteous and professional over the phone and my lunch was delivered relatively on time.

A Recipe full of Good Carbs and Fiber for your Diet

20180903_100848.jpg

Fiber also known as ‘good carbs’, makes you feel fuller for longer. It is in all fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds, and nuts.

There are many easy ways to sneak ‘good carbs’ and extra fiber into your daily diet. Here is one of them:

Yogurt Mix Recipe

20180903_092649.jpg

Make a yogurt mix for Breakfast.

Take one container of plain
Greek yogurt and mix in 1/3 cup of a high-fiber cereal (e.g. Kashi Go Lean Crisp), 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds, and 5 large, diced strawberries for a whopping 12.2 grams of fiber, which is nearly half of your daily allowance!
