***Price Correction: Lunch ($1700JMD); Dinner ($2500JMD)

With all the Showers of Blessing Jamaica has received in the past few months, perhaps we have a lot to be thankful for.

Quite a few places will be offering Thanksgiving Dinner, which is slowly becoming a part of our culture.

Suga recommends Thanksgiving at The Blue Window Restaurant, Jamaica Pegasus, where service, quality and variety are at a high standard for an affordable price. They will be offering Thanksgiving Lunch tomorrow at a cost $1700JMD per person and Thanksgiving Dinner at a cost of $2500JMD excluding tax and service charge.

The Carving station looks like it will be a hit! Check the menu out below. Reservations are recommended.

How was Sunday Dinner for Suga at The Terra Nova for Restaurant Week (Epicurean)?!

Last Sunday at 6:30pm, I had Dinner at The Terrace, Terra Nova All Suite Hotel. The Terrace is in the Epicurean category ($4300JMD) for Restaurant Week and my husband, Randy and I were looking forward to having sumptuous dishes.

We had a great start with the Appetizers. I preferred the Seafood Medley.

We both had the Lobster Bisque to follow, which was rich Lobster Soup, finished with cream and Brandy. I appreciated that the Soup was not salty. It was rich indeed and tasty.

Apart from a long wait before the Entrees, service was smooth. When we were waiting a little bit more than half an hour with no update on the arrival of the Entrees, a waiter caught my eye looking around and said that our Entrees were coming out shortly and they did. Besides that hiccup, the staff were cordial and quite attentive. The food was sumptuous as expected too.

Terra Nova Petit Fillet – Petit prime Filet Mignon grilled, topped with Shrimp and Blue Mussel scampi with Scallop Potato and roasted Vegetable.

With the above salivating description of a Surf n’ Turf, I think they could have served more than a single Shrimp and Mussel. Props to the Chef though, because that cut of meat was perfection  and cooked to order, medium rare, exactly how we like it. Same goes for the Lamb Chops! No disappointment there, because Terra Nova is known to have the best on the island. I thoroughly enjoyed those portions.

Dessert was decadent and quite a delightful ending to our Sunday Dinner.

Dessert served at The Terrace, Terra Nova All Suite Hotel last Sunday, November 12, 2017.

The three courses with the addition of a beverage, service charge and G.C.T came to about $6000JMD per person. The Terrace at the Terra Nova All Suite Hotel was definitely value for money and is Suga Endorsed for Restaurant Week.

There are still three nights left for Restaurant Week and it may not be too late to make those Reservations!

Enjoy!

KFC Gives Away $400,000 Tuition to a UWI, Mona Student!

KFC Jamaica’s BBQ Zinger
As of October 17th this year, KFC Jamaica crowned The University of the West Indies, Mona (UWI, Mona) as the ‘Zinger Capital of Jamaica’ due to them having the most Zinger Sandwiches sold in the local restaurant network over the past few years. 

Why is the Zinger Sandwich so popular amongst UWI students?

KFC Jamaica believes that Zinger Sandwiches are a convenient choice for young adults and that they get overall satisfaction for its amazing taste and flavour with choices of Hot n’ Spicy, BBQ or the Western Zinger.

UWI Students have expressed appreciation for the Sandwich’s real ingredients, that is, the fact that it is made of 100% real Chicken with fresh Vegetables topped off with melted Cheese that gives it more flavour.

How did KFC UWI show their Appreciation for the Support of the UWI Community?

For a limited time only during KFC Jamaica’s Zinger Promotional period, they upsized Fries and Drinks at certain times and gave away free Zingers on a Friday along with the purchase of a Zinger combo!

KFC decided to show their appreciation even further by awarding a Student with Free Zingers for an entire year after purchasing a Zinger and entering a raffle.

Congratulations to Satina Edwards  who won Free Zingers for a Year!

How did KFC give away $400,000 Tuition to a UWI Student?!

Suga has endorsed the fact that KFC has recognized that many students on Campus face financial challenges, so they decided to offer assistance towards their education.

They ran a Social Media Competition via Instagram for their UWI Mona Zinger lovers to rap about the KFC Zinger, shortlisted entries to 10 Finalists and then the Winner with the most likes by November 1, 2017, Kemar DaCosta  received a $400,000 Tuition Grant courtesy of KFC Jamaica!

Congratulations to Kemar DaCosta, Winner of the #ForMyZingerChallenge and a $400,000 Tuition Grant!

Flawless Service from Fromage Gourmet Market & Bistro for Restaurant Week’s Delectable Category!

Suga had a fabulous date with husband, Randy Burgess last Saturday night. Reservations were for 7pm at Fromage Gourmet Market & Bistro on Hillcrest Avenue and we were on time.

This Fromage was listed under the Delectable Category ($3800JMD) for Restaurant Week (RW). So dinner with a beverage including 5% service charge and tax can run you up to $5500JMD for one person.

We chose an early time for dinner, when the newly refurbished and slightly more spacious Fromage would not have been filled to capacity as yet. It reached full capacity midway through dinner though.

The Staff were courteous and extremely attentive without being overwhelming. All members of Staff were on the floor, paying attention to the tables whether they were serving that table or not. A sign of well-trained staff. Our server was Dimel, who I am familiar with. Always a pleasure.

Food came out like clockwork and water glasses were topped up when necessary. Great service.

The Appetizers were flavourful.

Bacon wrapped maple smoked Prawns

I had the Bacon wrapped maple smoked Prawns and Randy had the Marlin Corn Fritter Stack. I always enjoy Fromage’s house-made Pepper Jelly that has that divine mix of spicy and sweet as the name suggests.

As we wrapped up with the Appetizers, JPS had a promotion going on throughout the night for RW diners to download their JPS App and drop their card with contact information into a bag. They came during dinner service to do the first raffle draw for the night.

Our Main dishes came out shortly after the excitement of shaving $5000JMD off of our next Light bill.

Guinness BBQ Ribs with Sweet Potato Mash and Steamed Market Fresh Vegetables

My BBQ Ribs pleased my taste buds as described. They were lean, juicy, well seasoned and slow-cooked to a tender perfection.

Caramel Bread Pudding

Without a doubt, dinner came to a close for me with their popular Caramel Bread Pudding. It was warm and scrumptious as usual with their salivating caramel crumble on top.

Randy thoroughly enjoyed his Bailey’s Ice Cream Sundae.

Morning Bites and Nyam and Scram Picks for Restaurant week from Suga!

Restaurant Week (RW) has been up and running!

Remember that the Menus with Restaurant Locations and Contact numbers are online at:

http://go-jamaica.com/rw/

***Prices for the Nyam & Scram and Morning Bites Categories do not include Beverages and G.C.T***

Here are my recommendations for Breakfast and quick Grab & Go Bites:

Morning Bites – Kingston

> Cannonball Cafe is the only establishment listed this year although Breakfast can be sourced at a discounted price from Brew’d Awakenings as well.

Cannonball has decent Breakfast deals for less than $600JMD at all locations – Loshusan (Barbican), Manor Park, New Kingston and Sovereign North.

Nyam & Scram (30% off) – Kingston

100 at 100 Hope Road would be my primary choice for this Category. Nothing is new on their menu but they have tasty items that are well-known at a discounted price.

PhotoGrid_1510257798211
100’s Jerk Chicken Cocowich

The Jerk Chicken Cocowich is consistently good and you get their signature Jackpot Dessert to go with it for $1670JMD!

Screenshot_2017-11-09-14-56-49-1
100’s signature Jackpot Dessert – Pretzel Crust Fudge and Vanilla Ice Cream

You could also get their delicious, cheesy Flatbread and Soup for $1169JMD or two other options for less than $2000JMD.

4U Vietnamese Restaurant in Manor Center should be a decent spot, but I would go during the week to avoid the crowd on the weekend.

I recommend their Sizzling Plate of Beef, with which you get Soup and Dessert for $1200JMD. Ask for the Chili Sauce if you want more spice!

Ali’s Jamaican Cuisine on Annette Crescent has some Spicy Curried dishes with Roti for less than $900JMD.

I love Kushites Vegetable Cuisine at Eden Gardens on Lady Musgrave Road, but I believe they are more for fine dining and are too pricey for the Nyam & Scram Category. The same goes for Fromage Brasserie in Marketplace.

Oasis on the Oxford on the other hand is too expensive for mediocre food and poor service.

Jo Jo’s Jerk Pit and More on Waterloo Road is a good food spot, but their service is slow on a regular basis. So imagine Restaurant Week! I tried them once for RW but would avoid doing so again in the future.

I went to Nirvanna Restaurant and Lounge last year for this category. The menu is similar so the dishes should be tasty and filling. You should get value for your money. They usually have good service with a full house, but to be on the safe side, I had called in my order ahead of arrival last year. It worked out well, so you could do that too if you have a tight lunch hour.

Brew’d Awakenings as mentioned earlier, is simple but has decent Breakfast bites and other choices such as a Salad or Panini for $800JMD.

Triple T’z Eatery on Annette Crescent has a good reputation amongst my Suga Bears, so I would give them a try where value for money is concerned. You can get two Meats and sides with Soup and Dessert for $1200-$1300JMD.

Enjoy and be sure to give Suga your Feedback!
