Greedy girl eats: Whitebones seafood restaurant


"Greedy Girl Eats"

Whitebones seafood restaurant has been another go to eatery for our family. This is the second of the only two establishment I have reviewed that is not on the seaside. This restaurant is in the heart of Kingston city, or maybe on the outskirts of the heart. Their menu is quite extensive and they even have all you can eat crab Thursdays. However I will be schooling you all on their escovitch fish. Lets see how their escovitch fish rated.

BEST TEXTURE (delicate and tender)
BEST CRUNCH (tie)

"Greedy Girl Eats"


For this post, I headed over to the South East coast of Jamaica to Hellshire beach. I have never been to this location before. Anytime escovitch of fried fish is mentioned Hellshire fish is always among the places receiving accolades. So I made it my point of duty to try this spot. In particular I visited Bev and Sons establishment which is one of many lining the beach. Lets see how their escovitch fish rated.

Greedy girl eats: Jack Sprat


"Greedy Girl Eats"


This is another one of our favorite seafood restaurants. A number of years ago a bunch of friends and I decided to head down to the coast to try this spot we had been hearing about.We had no idea where we were going, we just drove and followed the signs. We took a few wrong turns but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to this beautiful spot. The food was great and we have been back there so many times since that I cant even count. Today lets talk about Jack Sprats escovitch fish.

Greedy Girl Eats: Oswald Seafood Restaurant


"Greedy Girl Eats"


Everyone who knows me know that I adore fish. And not just any fish, I adore escovitched fish, it is truly one of my favorites I can never tire of it. For a very long time my boyfriend has been telling me he has a new seafood spot for me to try. One day we were in St Elizabeth and he said there is a place called Oswalds he is going to take me. We went there on the eve of my 30th birthday for dinner and it was great. Since that first night we have been back countless times, as a matter of fact Oswald's number is in my phone.

Christmas Trifle



"Christmas is coming"

 Recently in Jamaica we had restaurant week November 14th to the 22nd. I made great use of the opportunity to taste as much as I could. I dined at Black orchid, Redbones, A-bar and Regency bar and lounge.  This post is inspired by a delicious dessert my mother and I had at Regency bar and lounge at Terra nova hotel; a perfectly chilled sweet trifle.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes


 "Christmas is coming"
 

If I had to rank potato cooking methods in order of deliciousness, mashed potatoes would be in my top three. A dish of mashed potatoes is one of the best side dishes and sweet mashed potatoes are even more so. And when I say sweet potatoes, I'm not referring to the Jewel or Garnet yams. In Jamaica we have very starchy red skinned fibrous sweet potato, similar to Japanese sweet potatoes (however the flesh is a pale mustard yellow not white). This savory dish is perfect for your Christmas table. This recipe was totally by accident and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it.

Sorrel Glazed Ham


"Christmas is coming"


In Jamaica, Christmas is the most loved holiday. It’s a time where we celebrate Christ and family. Once the Poinsettias start to turn red, you know it’s on and popping! With that the fruits are soaking, the sorrel pods are being harvested and everyone is starting to flesh out their Christmas plans. This ham needs to be at the top of list. It’s so moist and delicious and the sorrel and ginger sauce add the most perfect flavor to every bite.

Have you ever been to a Christmas dinner without mac and cheese? I can say with a certainty that I have never been to any form of family dinner or special occasion that did not have macaroni and cheese in some form. So here it is, my simple, easy, cheesy and delicious version of the classic. I’m sure you’re thinking, I already know how to make this, but you don’t know how to make it like me :)
