TGIF and #fbf to part of Suga’s Valentine’s haul from Simo’s Bread and Catering last Friday at the Valentine’s Pop Up at Wrightlife Live Food Eatery located at the Kiosks in Devon House, Kingston.

Gourmet Pastries from Simos are ALWAYS worth the calories. I was in Pastry heaven. #SugaSnaps #SugaEndorsed

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Cellar 8!

20200217_124305_0000

Cellar 8 was the place Suga’s husband, Randy chose for the Valentine’s Day date!

He loved their menu, also endorsed by Suga and wanted to avoid places that felt too crowded.

Cellar 8 seemed to manage an expected heavy flow of diners for the occasion well by having two seatings for the night, 6pm and 9pm. 6pm was a bit too early for a Friday evening, so we appreciate being accommodated for 7pm.

From the looks of it, appetizer servings seemed small, but we came out on top with the Chicken Marsala Kebab served over a mixed green salad and the creamy Seafood Bisque.

Randy’s cut of Steak could have been bigger, but it was cooked to medium rare perfection and I thoroughly enjoyed my Seafood Thermidor.

Their Blackforest Cake and house made Gelato trio were a sweet ending to the evening.

With regards to cost, it was the usual high end price compared to if you chose from their regular menu, racking up a bill of about JA$20,000 for two if you ordered an additional beverage. Perhaps they could offer a Valentine’s Day special next year.

As a part of the earlier set of diners, service was managed relatively well. If there was any delay, we were made aware right away. The food was delectable and the ambience suited the occasion. Loved the brawta photo on the way out! Cellar 8, thanks for a memorable evening.

XoXo, Suga

Suga’s Top 6 picks to have Dinner for Valentine’s Day

20200213_064920

1. EITS Cafe

20200213_052256

EITS Cafe will be featuring a special a la carte menu from 12noon to 4pm and a Valentine’s Dinner Buffet from 5pm to 8pm. Be sure to RSVP because space is limited!

Suga recommends you celebrate love in the mountains if you get the Friday off or get to leave work early. Such a fresh, cool, calm atmosphere.

Here are the mains from the Dinner Buffet menu or you can go to http://www.17milepostja.com to see full menus.

2. Sugar Mill Restaurant

20200213_055922

The Sugar Mill Restaurant by Half Moon, Montego Bay has the perfect ambience for Valentine’s Day Dinner. I am not sure if they have any special menu for the day, but if you go, be sure to ask for your local rate and enjoy.

It is the best restaurant in Jamaica and guaranteed value for money.

3. The Blue Window Restaurant at the Jamaica Pegasus

The Blue Window Restaurant has quite an eye-catching menu and they aim to please with added entertainment. Even their Island Jerk Chicken Salad looks good. But how do you choose between that and the Spicy Curry Shrimp with whipped saltfish?! Make sure you order both and feed each other. I would also definitely have their Surf & Turf.

4. Chive Restaurant

One of my faves, Chive restaurant is offering a 4-Course Valentine’s menu for Friday AND Saturday. Their menu looks fantastic, especially that chive style Bouillabaise! Be sure to make your reservations, as seating is limited.

5. Cellar 8 Wine Bar

Cellar 8 is offering a glass of Prosecco with dinner and their dishes are usually delicious. The C8 Seafood Thermidor looks like the winner to me.

You can still support ‘Hands in Art’ from Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf.

They still have Paintings and a Framed Drawing available that were guided by Suga Lifestyle’s, GW Art by Gabby. Check them out here!

*Prices range from $2500JMD to $7500JMD

PhotoGrid_1581413245570

These Paintings and Wooden signs by GW Art are also still available for purchase, where part proceeds will go to the school.

‘Hands in Art’ is a Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston Arts and Entrepreneurship Initiative with Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf. The Project also has the support of e-Learning Jamaica Co. Ltd. ‘Impact Through Unity’ is Rotaract’s theme for the year, which inspired the majority of the pieces.

Last Saturday at Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop, the kids showcased their Paintings guided by Gabrielle Burgess, Founder/Owner of GW Art and Jewellery guided by Bianca Bartley, CEO/Creative Director of Peace-is of Bianca. All proceeds from sales went towards the students’ educational resources and the school’s infrastructure and there is still a need for more funding, for instance, to supply classrooms with fans that are currently without.

The Epiphany: Beyond Body for Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop this Saturday!

20200205_060530_0000

Suga had an Epiphany! After over 2 years of testing various handpoured soy wax Candles from various artisans to find a special one other than Beryl + Blossom and Laura Alexis Candles, I found The Epiphany: Beyond Body. There were a few more suggestions to try, but Marsha-Lee Hutchinson’s branding, packaging and general presentation on Instagram grabbed me.

I tried her Coffee Candle (6oz) as well as the ‘Mi Rate Yuh!’ Blackberry with Vanilla (9oz) for Valentine’s. The Coffee candle when lit was strong the way I like it. The Blackberry and Vanilla was a bit faint when lit, but definitely soothing as more time went by.

20200205_060956

The Epiphany: Beyond Body is now a Suga Artisan and will have her handpoured Soy wax Candles, including the Valentine’s line on special, Chocolate and Coffee Body Scrubs too for great prices! She also offers Skincare products.

Look out for The Epiphany: Beyond Body this Saturday!
