Suga’s Breakdown:

A rainy Saturday afternoon, hungry after errands with the reopening of Chillin’ Restaurant nearby at a central location on Holborn road meant that I had to stop for Lunch!

I was relieved to see a sheltered area for seating. Located in a new complex, loved the cosy, modern decor. I can see myself taking in some sports on the flat screen in the near future by the Bar counter.

Courteous staff that you could see worked as a team harmoniously.
Orlando was our waiter and he was attentive throughout our visit.

The Menu was understandably limited during Covid times to standard Jamaican and Chillin’ faves, Curried Goat, Oxtail, BBQ Chicken and Friiiiied Chicken.

Hubby and I enjoyed our Oxtail (J$1100) & Curried Goat (J$950). His Oxtail tender, sliding off bone, while my Curried Goat had no bone really. Usual @chillinrestaurant standard. Tasty, well seasoned and spicy. But, mi nearly order 2 cuz mi did wa likkle more!

Oxtail (J$1100 incl. Tx)
Curried Goat (J$950 incl. Tx)

Still a great pick me up, Value for $ and their Menu and usual sizes should be back soon as they navigate Covid. #SugaSnaps for reopening P.J. Wright!!! Chillin’ Restaurant remains #SugaEndorsed 👌🏾

Suga Taster, Jehan’s Breakdown:

Suga Taster, Jehan in Kingston 21, Florida was wowed by Krystal Powell’s Dynamic Cuisines Food Truck again! 

Just when I think Krystal Powell cannot get better, she continues to create waves. So I couldn’t let a week in January pass before ordering.

Dynamic Cuisines Food Truck was launched on August 6, 2020 and since then I have been a faithful, weekly patron.

Once you follow her Instagram page, @kookinwithkryssi, you will realize that she posts the weekly “Pull-Up Schedule” that showcases where she will be with a particular day and time. She is no stranger to Pembroke Pines, Miramar, Davie, North Lauderdale, Margate and Miami.

Once you “pull up” to her food truck, please be prepared to always encounter a long line (yes… that is how good her culinary skills are) and once you place your order, you will have to wait 15-20 minutes as all meals are cooked to order. Still Reasonable!

I am yet to be disappointed and I usually place two to three orders at a time. Suga Bears in Kingston 21, go check out Krystal Powell’s Food Truck today!

TGIF! Geesh! Cool it down with Chill-Pops Gourmet Paletas!

TGIF! Geesh! Cool it down with Chill-Pops Gourmet Paletas!


Chill-Pops Gourmet Paletas is located in the same Boardwalk Shopping Village across from Negril Tree House with Matthew’s Sushi Bar and Grill!

It’s the cutest little cart to shop from that’s not on wheels.

Don’t get it twisted, Chill-Pops Gourmet Paletas offers Gourmet Paletas not Popsicles. The difference? Popsicles are non-dairy frozen, flavoured treats, while Paletas, as they call them in Mexico are frozen treats made from natural ingredients such as Fruits or rich, creamy ingredients like my hubby’s Coffee Paleta.

Loved the variety! Imagine having a Margarita or a Whiskey Sour Paleta like me?!

It was refreshing and so tasty, with actual slices of lime inside.
Based on what you order, you can add toppings too.
We neeeed a Chill-Pops Gourmet Paletas in Kingston. They are #SugaEndorsed.

Jumbo Shrimp Tempura ($1200JMD)*

There was absolutely no room for Dessert, but I was happy to see that it is baked fresh daily from The Pastry Place in the same complex.

The food and service were superb.
There was no Fireball Whisky though! So next time I will be back for The Hustler Cocktail and more. Check out their menu on their Instagram Page (@matthewsnegril) and if you’re in Negril, stop by! They are #SugaEndorsed.
