#tbt to Authentic Pasta Dishes from PG’s Restaurant & Wine Bar!

Pappardelle Pomodoro with Pesto from PG’s!

It’s been almost a year since Suga has visited PG’s, but a trip there is overdue.

Chef Pierluigi Ricci’s hospitality and polite, professional staff is bar none. Their wine selection is top-notch to accompany the variety of delectable, authentic Italian dishes available.

Remember that PG’s used to be Toscanini at Harmony Hall. But now, it is a bit of a hidden gem along Tower Isle. If you drive slowly enough, you’ll be sure to see it or just give them a call! With Covid restrictions, opening hours frequently change, so reservations are recommended.

Some ‘Coping with Covid’ humour from PG’s

PG’s may not be as active or picturesque on social media, but please remember to support our best Restaurants so that we can move forward with them during and after Covid.

District 5 Sky Lounge at the R Hotel was a Vibe Last Saturday!

Gabby Burgess a.k.a Suga of Suga Lifestyle with Suga Taster and friend, Taraja Jackson at District 5, R Hotel last Saturday.

Thank you District 5 Sky Lounge for some much needed fresh air, wine, rum, tasty, sizeable portions of food and of course an atmosphere full of vibes.

Grilled Snapper Fillet (USD$25)
Thyme, black pepper, garlic and home-made green marinade grilled to perfection and glazed with paprika butter

While most Restaurants, Bars & Lounges were quiet last Saturday, before three days of No Movement in Ja, the Best Sunday Spot became the Best Saturday Spot.

My crew of ladies gathered around a table at about 1:30pm and as the day progressed, the music got a little louder, had more buzz and all the diners at their designated and adequately distanced tables caught a vibe.

District 5 Sky Lounge is currently a hot spot for celebrations and we saw Birthdays and lastly, we thoroughly enjoyed witnessing a celebration of love, a Proposal!

With screams from the Feyoncé to be’s girlfriends, all eyes turned to the prepared stage for the special occasion and to see her say YES. Congrats to the lucky couple and Suga is looking forward to when cases are lowered and the Best Sunday Spot can resume Brunch! Cheers🥂

Culinary Excellence at Excellence Oyster Bay in Trelawny, Jamaica!

Suga thoroughly enjoyed the endless variety of Cuisines, Restaurant and Bar options available at Excellence Oyster Bay with Excellent Service to go with it.

Great for Coping with Covid and I’ll say it again, the Best and most affordable Adult Only All-Inclusive in Jamaica right now.

Watch “Culinary Excellence at Excellence Oyster Bay in Trelawny, Jamaica!” on YouTube here: 

https://youtube.com/shorts/1ixg2UTnutY?feature=share

Excellence Oyster Bay has two Club members only Restaurants, Magna & Zenith, that offer the finest of dining and selections for Breakfast and Dinner.

Check out that Marinated Red Tuna Steak (medium) in the opening of the video! Perfection. Their Coconut Cheesecake was an understandable fave too.

Suga enjoyed Breakfast at Magna with a spectacular view, gourmet cheeses and breads that rolled up on a cart along with the richest Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.

No worries if not a Club Member, I can personally vouch for the Lobster House, Oregano (Italian), Spice (Pan-Asian), Aroma (Café), and Martini Bar taking care of all your cravings and culinary needs.

I didn’t even get the chance to touch the Buffet! By the looks of it when passing by, it looked impressive as well.

Most Restaurants offered Breakfast and Lunch and their were countless Dinner options that I have to return to try, such as the Chez Isabelle (French), The Grill (Steakhouse) and Caribbean Grove.

Don’t even get me talking about their Spa! Hydrotherapy and more. Other than a hiccup at Check-In, which they made up for… Excellence! Can’t wait to return. 👌🏾 #SugaEndorsed

One of the Best Spots for Breakfast in Kingston!

Café el Centro on Hillcrest Avenue, Kingston

Throwing it back to having Breakfast at one of the best spots in Kingston last Saturday, Café el Centro!

Café el Centro on Hillcrest Avenue, Kingston is famous for their mouthwatering Steaks and last Saturday they offered their Steak and Eggs special that hubby couldn’t miss.

My healthy week started from Saturday! I opted for Eggs Benedict with spinach and a Smoked Marlin Salad.

The Steak was cooked to medium rare perfection, the Eggs Benedict was delish and the Smoked Marlin Salad was stacked to my satisfaction.

Steak and Eggs
Smoked Marlin Salad served with a Vinaigrette

Service was great and usually is, whether or not there are many diners there. Check out Café el Centro for Breakfast or Lunch this week!

TGIF! Are You Balancing Your Hard Work Week with R & R?

Remember for your own good health and peace of mind, balance is key.

Suga is happy to report that the majority, if not all of our Family All-Inclusive Resorts are fully booked for the summer.

As they get back on their feet and are understaffed, we need to exercise patience, enjoy our families’ company and our beautiful island.

Let’s leave the summer to our visitors as we have a far way to go with vaccination and Covid variants are present.

Sadly, Masks are no longer fully enforced at the Buffets of some of our Resorts, though the staff still serve you.

Book your stay to enjoy Sun, Sand and some Vitamin Sea at one of our many Villas that are hidden gems or an Adult Only All-Inclusive Resort that’s not booked to full capacity. Stay safe Suga Bears! 🍹🏝
