Even though it’s not an all inclusive, their current rate is definitely value for money. Seize the opportunity before it goes back up!

The food and presentation from their Zest Restaurant was consistently excellent.

Manager, Vernon was on site everyday, quite hospitable and accommodating along with his staff.

The property was clean. Views were breathtaking. Parking was adequate, which is hard to find in Negril. Wifi was decent. The room was huge and the Smart Tv was great. Just 1 complaint…only water came in the fridge. We would appreciate 2 Red Stripes next time 😎🍻

The Cliff Hotel and its Zest Restaurant are #SugaEndorsed.

When Skylarking in Negril, Yuh Driva Haffi Mek 1-Stop

Miss Lily’s at Skylark Negril Beach Resort on Negril’s Seven Mile Beach!

The music, food and vibes are right everytime. The only good system is a sound system.

I enjoyed their succulent, flavourful Jerk BBQ Pork Spare Ribs with roasted plantains. Finger-licking good.

Jerk BBQ Pork Spare Ribs with roasted plantains (US$22)

Hubby, Randy enjoyed the Miss Lily’s mouth-watering Cheeseburger that was sandwiched in cocoa bread.

Vegetarian menu and fresh Juices available too. IΒ  had the refreshing Skylark Greens.

Great, speedy and pleasant service. #SugaEndorsed

Suga’s Next Stop on the West End, Rockhouse at Rockhouse Hotel!

The award-winning Caribbean’s Leading Boutique Hotel for many years, as well as Jamaica’s Leading Spa Resort for ’14, ’15 is usually booked out for Weddings whenever we are in Negril.

So with much anticipation and quite a reputation, we finally dined at one of the most scenic Restaurants cliffside.

The staff there, led by Gossett definitely got that old school welcoming, Jamaican hospitality that we love. Kudos to them. Their energy working amongst each other was cordial as well.

Seating was close, but I was still able to make myself comfortable.

My Coconut Shrimp starter was delish. We enjoyed the other dishes, Crab Quesadilla, Seafood Linguini with Shrimp and Snapper and the Surf & Surf with seared Snapper and Garlic Shrimp.

Coconut Shrimp (US$12)
Crab Quesadilla (US11)
Seafood Linguini with Shrimp & Snapper (US$19)
Surf & Surf with seared Snapper and Garlic Shrimp (US$24)
Chocolate Cake

They were tasty dishes, but left a little more to be desired. I also only had two bites of the Chocolate Cake. Perhaps expectations were too high or maybe they fell off their game a bit, because other spots are quite impressive! Stay tuned for more this week.

Suga Revisits Westmoreland! First Stop, Pelican Lookout!

Sometimes it takes a few months before you get the urge to take the 4-hour drive to Negril, but when you do, it’s so worth it!

First stop, Pelican Lookout restaurant and bar by West End, Negril.

It was overcast upon arrival, but then the sun came out and you know Negril heat hits differently, so go in the evening or night when the vibes and temperature are right.

Very attentive staff, big up Rohan and most of all, the Chef! Food ‘propa’.

A variety of Octopus dishes were on the menu, but looks like we just missed the season. We have to return to try those!

There were still great options for Seafood, Pastas, Burgers and Beverages. We opted for traditional Jamaican Conch Fritters, Oxtail and Curried Goat. They all hit the spot. Di Oxtail tender tender and slide off the bone. Well seasoned and wicked flavours.

Conch Fritters (US$8)
Oxtail and Beans
Oxtail and Beans (USD $17)
Curried Goat (USD$15)

Eye-catching rustic, artistic dΓ©cor & view, rhythmic music, timely food and I can see the place lights up at night.

Pelican Lookout is #SugaEndorsed. Visit them when next on the West End.

Suga’s Breakdown: 

Last Saturday, with no weddings, someone to watch the kids and complete or postponed errands, us girls finally made time for Lunch, Vino & Cocktails! Can you relate? If not, it’s totally worth it.

Balance is key Suga Bears and thankfully, the recently Award-Winning Game Changer Restaurant Broken Plate
did not disappoint.

They don’t facilitate reservations, but it’s somewhat understandable in these times when a party may not show up and not give notice. We were seated quickly enough and our waitress was polite and attentive.

Loved the modern, simple yet tasteful decor.

The Restaurant was full to capacity, but comfortable and they still managed to send out our Appetizers, Beverages and Mains in good time.

We enjoyed Calamari, Duck Breast Bruschetta, the Smoked Marlin Salad, Grilled Salmon and BBQ Spare Ribs. The girls took their Dessert to-go.

Calamari ‘Pop’ (J$1750)
Duck Breast Bruschetta (J$2050)
Smoked Marlin Salad (J$2250)
Grilled Salmon (J$3650)
BBQ Spare Ribs (J$3950)

I asked for my Bruschetta to be lightly toasted and it was honoured, arriving with tasty, tender Duck Breast. I also switched out the creamy sauce for my Salmon with grilled pineapple & corn salsa. You can enjoy healthier choices when you’re out too!

A Restaurant for the young, old & in-between. It took me a while to visit, but I definitely prefer the changes made and this new location. Broken Plate is now #SugaEndorsed

#tbt to the Joy when Suga Lifestyle Charities Ltd. & Rotaract Club of New Kingston Donate!

Yesterday was the handover of Suga Lifestyle Charities Ltd.’s sponsored donation to Rotaract Club of New Kingston’s Stationery Drive.

Reading and Colouring books along with Stationery & School supplies were donated to the Glenhope Nursery & Pre-School in Richmond Park Kingston, off Maxfield Avenue.

πŸ“Έ: Rotaract Club of New Kingston’s VP Horace Collins, President Shanice Salmon, Ms. Walters, Procurement Ofcr. of Glenhope Nursery, Gabrielle Burgess, Owner of Suga Lifestyle Charities Ltd. & Rotaract Club of New Kingston Dir. Chez Ashman)

Many Projects have been delayed during the pandemic, so even though it was hard to hear the kids in a building nearby and not be able to talk or play with them, the genuine feeling of joy expressed by Glenhope Nursery’s Procurement Officer, Ms. Walters was priceless.

We’ll be back THIS year πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

Uncorked…not just for Wine. Go EAT!

It’s been weeks since I’ve been to Uncorked’s Sovereign North location, but I always expect delectable dishes paired with premium wines. I wasn’t disappointed.

I was eating healthy, versus hubby’s Gourmet Burger (all of them are good), until I had a craving for Cheese.

Our courteous & attentive server, Norjah recommended the Black Bomber Cheese and it was really da Bomb! We had Goat cheese with truffles too. Delish!

I paired with an old fave, Miol Prosecco.

Check out Uncorked’s amazing Mastercard specials here, including the Charcuterie Board and one of my faves, their Seared Tuna!

Flavourful and Filling Healthy NEW Spot, Green Gourmet!!!

Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga at Green Gourmet on Roseneath Avenue last Saturday, September 18, 2021

Suga hit the new Breakfast and Lunch Spot on Roseneath Avenue, Kingston Green Gourmet last Saturday.

I am not going lie, with lockdown the next day, I ordered two meals because healthy bowls are not usually filling for me πŸ˜ƒ BUT Green Gourmet’s signature Vegan Stew Bowl pleasantly surprised me. It wasn’t boring or bland to the palate and I was full! You can choose unlimited toppings for your first visit and three (3) thereafter. Their Pineapple and tomato salsa really enhanced the flavour of the meal. I had a Green Smoothie too.

SIgnature Vegan Stew Bowl

If you would just like to eat stress free, my husband, Randy enjoyed his Ramen Bowl with Shrimp and a Red Stripe. Again, rich flavours.

Signature Ramen Bowl with Shrimp

I took my Smoked Marlin with pepper jelly Wrap (minus the Cheese) to go.
(Total spent for two: J$5900)

Here’s a sneak peek on a possible new dish to come πŸ˜‰ We got Brawta!

Cash or Online Payment only and Delivery options are available.

Comfy spot with good customer service. Randy already went back yesterday and enjoyed the Mexican Salad with Grilled Chicken. Green Gourmet is #SugaEndorsed.
