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.

Mystic Thai Delivers Again to Close Out Suga’s Birthday Month with a Bang!

20200626_213418
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.

Panang Fish Curry Thai.

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.

Give Mystic Thai a visit soon! They have been coming to Kingston about every 2 weeks. So, if you are in Kingston and can’t wait, trust me, the experience is worth the drive. #SugaEndorsed

Date Night at Home with Mystic Thai During Love in the Time of Corona!

20200519_234909
Randy and Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga enjoying date night at home with Dinner delivered by Mystic Thai last Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

Throwing it back to Mystic Thai delivering to our door last week Wednesday!

That was not a dinner to eat on the couch in front of the television. It was a great opportunity for Date Night. I had to shower, wash my hair and get ready. I mean, we had to respect the rich, culinary ethnicity of what we were about to experience. We were dressed too casual, but it’s hot at home!

20200520_004736

The package traveled well. It seemed like the boxes were delivered just as how they packed them. There was no leaking or gravy stains and this was coming all the way from Montego Bay to Kingston. Why can’t bearers in Kingston get it right?

Anyhow, Date night kicked off with delish Mushroom Bamboo Shoots (USD$8) and Shrimp and Scallion (USD$10.50) Dumplings complemented well by the sauces provided with them. We had spicy, sweet, herby and soy sauce options.

We then enjoyed Rang Dang Gai (Grilled Chicken with Thai Herbs – USD$9.50) Kebab style.

The finale featured Kaeng Som (Yellow Curry) Shrimp (USD$14.50) with Garlic Naan. Their Green Thai and Red Thai Curries are best sellers, but I was going for the immune booster provided by the Turmeric in the Yellow Curry.

My only complaint was that the quantity could have been more, which I am sure they will look into when they hopefully do this again! I would also order more. We were still satisfied, but we had ZERO leftovers. The next day we were just left with the memory that no other Restaurant’s Dinner Delivery is currently on that level. You get what you pay for. Thank you so much Mystic Thai for thinking of Kingston, my taste buds thank you as well. #SugaSnaps #SugaEndorsed

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!
