Comments: Parking is far too tight for the entire Plaza. Definitely not a place for Wine with a limited selection, so I see why they seem to now go by Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria instead of Debut Fine Wine and Grill – Brick Oven Pizza. Good Service and filling, tasty Pizzas. Love the incorporation of spice. Affordable prices. Simple, cosy spot for lunch.

Suga visited Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria two Saturdays ago at about 3:45 pm.

Even though they are known mainly for Pizza and that is what I went there for, I browsed their menu and it had a variety of items other than Pizza at affordable prices. Appetizers such as Buffalo Wings, Spicy Nachos, Mozzarella sticks, Calamari and more are available in the range of $648 – $1298JMD.

There are Paninis for $998 – $1198JMD, Salads for $698 – $798JMD and Pastas for $1698 – $1998JMD.

Jamaican Specialties such as Jerked Chicken, Escoveitched and Steamed Fish, Pepper Shrimp and more are available for under $3000JMD.

Vegetarians are not left out. There are Veggie Cheese Kebabs, Veggie Pizza options and more. The Pizza Siciliana (Grilled Eggplant, capers, tomato sauce, mozzarella) and Pizza Manchurian (Veggie balls, tomato sauce, mozzarella) look like a treat, whether you are Vegetarian or not.

Most importantly, quite a variety of Pizzas are available in the range of $1398 – $1898JMD. You can pick, choose and refuse from the traditional Pepperoni, Hawaiian, Margherita and Jerk Chicken Pizzas or you can go with Pizzas that have more divine toppings such as the Pacifica (Smoked Pacific Salmon, capers, sour cream, tomato sauce) and Pizza Marinara (Shrimp, Calamari, Fish, tomato sauce and cheese). You can also customize your own Pizza with protein and veggies.

Dessert is available as well, but with limited options.

It was quite lonely when my husband, Randy and I went there, but we were told by our hospitable hostess that the place really comes alive at night and when the cruise ships come in. The Cafe that was two shops down

got a lot of traffic when I was there though.

Indian Spiced Chicken – Chicken Tikka, Cheese, Green Pepper, Onion ($1498JMD)

Our Pizzas arrived within 20 minutes of ordering. Randy, who loves spice thoroughly enjoyed his Indian Spiced Chicken Pizza. I can confirm it was as good as it looks. It was a mouthful of spicy, flavourful and cheesy goodness, not just because I tasted it, but because he finished eating his Pizza before me. That’s a record! Indians own the restaurant, hence a few dishes showcasing Indian cuisine and the incorporation of Indian spices and flavoured protein toppings on the Pizzas.

Pizza Meatza – Jerk Chicken, Pepperoni, Jerk Sausage, Onion ($1698JMD)

I had the Pizza Meatza, that was like a full house. It was stacked with Jerk Chicken, Pepperoni, Jerk Sausage and Onion. Scrumptious!

Refreshing Red Stripe Beers were the perfect combo with our Pizzas. Pizzas from Debut Brick Oven Pizzeria are #SugaEndorsed.

Neapolitan Pizzas are authentic Italian style Pizzas that are made with San Marzano tomatoes grown on volcanic plains in Italy and Mozzarella cheese made with milk from water buffalo that are raised in the marshlands of Italy. The Mozzarella cheese used is known as ‘white gold’ because of its high premium quality and taste.

MidiCi has a Daily Happy Hour from 3-7pm and all day on Thursdays. They also do Wine and Cheese on Wednesdays for $19.95USD.

They have quite a salivating Instagram page. Looks like they are worth a try on my next trip!

Comments: Perfect Bar and Lounge for a mellow evening or night. Good environment for conversation and a business meeting. The music is not loud.

Suga’s Healthy Pesto Pizza Recipe!

PhotoGrid_1503024294890.png

Suga finally got her hands on Ashebre Gourmet Condiments’ Spicy Basil Pesto sauce. Ashebre Gourmet Condiments is from Ashebre, The Virtual Restaurant led by local Executive Culinary Artist, Oji Jaja.

Now and then you will see a few stocked in Loshusan Supermarket. I glimpsed it somewhere else too, but the location has slipped from my memory.

I was happy with how long Ashebre’s 10oz Spicy Basil Pesto lasted. I made Chicken and Shrimp Pesto Pasta for two, as well as 5 mini Pesto Pizzas made from Whole Wheat Pita Bread over two weekends.

Screenshot_2017-08-17-21-51-09-1.png

My husband and I enjoyed it. It is one of the healthiest Pestos that I have seen on the market with only 10% Saturated Fat and I loved and appreciated that it wasn’t drenched in Olive oil. It was dairy free and fresh with it’s own unique herby, taste.

Other Jamaican Branded Pestos that are #sugaendorsed are Christina Simonitsch’s Pesto from Simo’s Bread and Catering, who is currently away to return September and none other than, Stush in the Bush’s Pesto.

If you get your hands on any of their Pestos, be sure to try my Recipe for your Personal Chicken Pesto Pizza!

Ingredients

Whole Grain Pita bread
Ashebre Gourmet Condiments Spicy Basil Pesto
Skinless, Boneless strips of Chicken Breast
Jerk seasoning
Garlic powder
Paprika
Black pepper
Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free seasoning blend
Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese (15% Sat. Fat)                                              Tomato
Onion
A few leaves of fresh Basil
***Add a few leaves of Fresh Arugula! Suga couldn’t find any at the time

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Oven-Baked Skinless, boneless strips of Chicken Breast.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 °F.

Season the Chicken with Jerk seasoning, Garlic powder, Paprika, Black pepper and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free seasoning blend.

Bake the Chicken for about 12 to 15 mins (depending on your oven and the thickness of the Chicken Breast), ensuring that you flip sides along the way until juices run clear and it remains tender.

Leave strips to cool for about 5 minutes, then cut up into smaller pieces.

2. As the Chicken is baking, prep your Pizza

Spread the Pesto sauce evenly on the the Pita Bread.

Add Cheese, Onion and chopped Tomato.

3. After the Chicken has cooled for about 5 minutes and it is cut into smaller pieces, turn up the oven to 400°F.

4. Place the layered Pita Bread in the Oven and as the Cheese begins to melt, add the Chicken and sprinkle a bit more Cheese on top.

Watch until it melts, then remove the Pizza from the oven. It just takes a few minutes!

Garnish with a few fresh Basil leaves and Arugula.

Slice it with a Pizza Cutter then Serve!

ENJOY!

Cellar 8’s Greek Pizza – kalamata olives, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, mozzarella, basil and pesto sauce (Vegan option available)

The Pizzas at Cellar 8 are great with or without a few drinks. I enjoyed my Greek pizza two weeks ago and Suga bears rave over their Down South pizza as well.

The Down South pizza has sweet, tangy South Carolina sauce with ham, sugar, cured bacon, caramelized onion and sharp cheddar.

Enjoy some delish appetizers and entrées this weekend accompanied by a few drinks at Cellar 8! #sugaendorsed

Suga Visits Italian Café in Negril

Screenshot_2017-05-03-10-31-35-1.png

Suga went to Negril last weekend and The Italian Café also known as Kenny’s Italian Café was the first stop.

My husband and I got to Negril late in the night after 11pm so we knew we could only get Pizza at that time. No Problem. I heard the Pizzas are authentic Italian, so I was still looking forward to it.  The owner, Kenny married an Italian lady and after being a Chef working in the tourism industry for years in Jamaica, he took a few years to learn cooking Italian cuisine from his wife and others in Italy.

A Suga Bear, Helen Da Costa, stopped by earlier in the evening for Dinner at Italian Café before she went back to Kingston. She enjoyed Bruschetta and Shrimp Pasta. Regardless of the fact that she disliked that they topped off the Bruschetta with lettuce and they didn’t use fresh Basil, she thought it was delicious.

My husband and I had Pizza and Beer. We shared the Rasta Pasta ($15.50USD) that was served with crushed pepper and parmesan cheese. It was made fresh, tasty and flavourful.

Screenshot_2017-05-03-09-30-43-1.png
Rasta Pizza ($15.50USD) – tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, onions, black olives and green peppers

Their menu has quite a variety of Pastas and Pizzas. There are also a few options for Appetizers, Salads, Seafood and Dessert. Prices are quoted in USD but still reasonable. Of course if you go with a high end dish such as Steak, Seafood or a Full House Pizza, it may be a bit pricey.

The atmosphere was buzzing with many locals and tourists, accompanied by lively music. Service and Plating were excellent and I loved the modern décor and lighting with a hint of rustic.

The Ladies’ bathroom could use some attention from the cleaning staff and Parking was limited given its location on the popular Norman Manley Boulevard ‘Negril strip’. If you sat close by the sidewalk, you were likely to be approached by locals selling CDs or other things, but they were not persistent if you showed no interest to purchase.

Italian Café is a chill spot for persons who would like to stop by and have authentic Italian Lunch, Dinner or just Lounge with friends over Cocktails while listening to some good, lively music.
