You just got to love servers that know the menu inside out with the best suggestions too!
The Duck Kibbeh’s flavours are out of this world, the roasted pine nuts add a tasty, fun crunch to the Hummus Royale, the Black Truffle is the way you should do rice all the time with flavours complementing each other and so outside of the box. Lastly, the roasted Lamb Shoulder melts in your mouth and although I prefer the original version, they certainly do Baklava with a twist.
Throwback to probably the best Octopus I’ve ever had, 3 Thursdays ago!
Suga had a GNO at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood, a staple of the renewed Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.
The menu offers prime cuts of beef, signature raw bar & delectable seafood selections, and more. I heard of their state-of-the-art wood fire grills and Josper coal ovens and was eager to try their Lamb Chops, but they were unavailable that night.
So I had the most delish Charred Octopus as a starter with Romesco sauce and roasted Marcona Almonds. Perfectly grilled. Tender, succulent, with a crispy outside and slightly smoky flavour from the wood fire grill.
I then enjoyed the Parmesan crusted Salmon, complemented by a tasty Beurre Blanc sauce with a glass of vino.
Excellent service and food, accompanied by live entertainment. Their menu has high quality options that are value for your money.

Have you been to the fairly new Coppers Jamaica Restaurant (Ig: @thecoppersja) on Haining Road?
It was the last stop for hubby, Randy’s Restaurant Hopping Birthday Weekend. We couldn’t get a reservation for the Saturday, so we went for Lunch on Monday, December 6th. You have to call ahead early for this spot Suga Bears.
Owner, Heather is back, but what we knew as Heather’s had to be revamped into what seemed to be a long time vision, Coppers. Well executed. You have casual and formal dining options, outdoors and indoors respectively.
Our waitress was courteous & attentive throughout our stay.
They scored a fantastic Chef, Ramesh, who used to be at Cellar 8 in their early days. IYKYK. So the food was of course, spectactular.
Chef Ramesh’s seasoning and flavours are in a class by itself. I enjoyed the juicy Japanese Sticky Pork with Soya Ginger Greens & Basmati rice, while Randy fulfilled his Burger craving. If you have one, go for it! A Two Patty Smash Burger stuffed with crispy onion rings, served with seasoned fries.

Hubby and I visited Chive Restaurant (Ig:@chivejamaica) 3 Saturdays ago for his Restaurant hopping Birthday weekend.
Check out some of what we enjoyed here:
Chive continues to be a fully satisfying stop with their twist on International cuisine stemming from unique seasoning and added herbs, of course including Chive.
Chive Restaurant supports fellow local businesses and was a sponsor for Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection. A lucky Suga Bear, Carolyn Reid walked away with a Dinner for 2 valued at $10000 from signing up her Suga Bear Card at the gate!
Congrats Carolyn and thanks again Chive Restaurant!
HINT HINT The owner of Chive Restaurant has NEW and Exciting things coming for early 2022 😉 Remember you heard it from Suga first.
Stop and have a bite at Chive Restaurant this Christmas season.🎄
