Suga’s Breakdown:

Pimentos, the new spot for Soups, Salads and Sandwiches is quickly growing to be a trendy favourite for foodies and persons in search of healthy good options. Suga can see why. Pimentos is nestled in the courtyard of Devon House across from the Bakery.

Its comfortable outdoor seating is amongst natural greenery that provides a cool, cosy atmosphere on a hot, sunny day.

The Staff was welcoming and ordering was hassle-free. The menu was easy to read and even though there was variety, the categories of items available were straight forward.

Pimentos is surely keeping up to the time. After ordering, I was surprised and impressed to see that I got a timer, so I could feel free to stroll in the grounds of Devon House and return to pick up my order at the sound of the beep. They didn’t give you for a long wait either.

The cost of Soup ranges from $500 – $850JMD; Salads $750-$1380JMD; Sandwiches $990-$1950JMD and Hamburgers $1290-$1480JMD. A range of cheeses, spices, sauces, veggies and meats are integrated into the menu items to offer quite a variety. I overheard a diner next to me rave about how much she enjoyed her Salad. They offer large bowls that look filling too.

Chicken Pumpkin Soup (Med.) – $500JMD (tx incl.)

I appreciated the consistency of my Chicken Pumpkin soup. It wasn’t too thin and it wasn’t too thick. It was just right, pleasurable and filling. My husband, Randy had the Seafood Chowder that was delish!

Seafood Chowder – $850JMD (tx incl.)

My Smoked Marlin sandwich was flavourful, especially with the Pepper Jelly spread. The Hamburgers are cooked fresh, so Randy was able to tell them how he wanted it. His Swiss Mushroom Hamburger arrived cooked to order with mouth-watering, melted Swiss Cheese.

Smoked Marlin Sandwich ($1950JMD tx incl.) – Smoked Deep Sea Marlin, whipped cream cheese, fried Capers and Pepper Jelly

Pimentos is #SugaEndorsed and I may try the Pimentos Cheese Steak that has tender cuts of seasoned choice Beef, topped with a blend of Provolone and Monterey Jack Cheese with roasted onions, peppers and Pimento Aioli for $1390JMD when I return.

TGIF to this Creamy Seafood Cheese Tortellini!

20190110_161311
Suga’s Seafood Cheese Tortellini (Cheese filled Pasta with Lobster, Shrimp, Calamari, Mussels, Conch and Octopus tossed in a creamy seafood sauce from Ribbiz Ocean Lounge last Saturday, January 5, 2018.

TGIF to this Seafood Cheese Tortellini! Last Saturday I indulged in a creamy, cheesy Seafood Pasta from Ribbiz Ocean Lounge. The Lobster that topped it all off was a bit cold, but other than that, it was quite scrumptious and enjoyable. I wish I could say the same about the limited parking options and intolerable service. My experience was unreviewable. I will not be returning to that location, but the Seafood Cheese Tortellini is on the menu at Ribbiz Ultra Lounge in Loshusan Centre, Barbican! Go get it there!

Have a great weekend!
