Eat Outs // Rum Bus Beach

As the name suggests it’s a Rum Bus; they redesigned an old double-decker bus into a bar then added several cabanas and hammocks, turning this place into an amazing beach bar and restaurant. It’s located on the south-western end of the island along a stretch of countless other beach bars; however the red bus definitely stands out. Next to it is OJ’s beach bar which we visited sometime ago.

We were back and forth trying to decide which place to check out on Sunday and finally went with Rum Bus since there were so many great reviews. Another plus was that the menu was available online so we were aware of the prices beforehand. I don’t know if that’s just a weird thing with me, but I prefer viewing menus online to see whether or not there’s anything I’d like or if I could even afford the place without breaking the bank. Therefore the menu availability was definitely a plus and helped with making our decision to check it out. Continue reading “Eat Outs // Rum Bus Beach”

Importance of Healthy Eating

Last week Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending a panel discussion on the importance of healthy eating. This discussion was put on by the Rotaract Club of Antigua and Barbuda in which I occasionally attend meetings. Sadly, there was an issue with panel hosts but it was still an eventful evening. The host of the night was Ms. Charity Dublin, a nutritionist by trade and fellow lifestyle blogger.

In My Kitchen // Tasty Orange Shrimp

Back in the kitchen yet again! Let’s face it, I enjoy cooking, but detest washing the dishes after. I love finding new things to experiment with and I got to thank PINTERST for that. As a quick meal for after work or school I decided on shrimp for the meat; with a simple search and there were so many options. HONEY ORANGE FIRECRACKER SHRIMP spiked my interest and taste buds.

In my Kitchen // Twice-Baked Potato

Hey Guys!!

Hope all is well. Since I’ve been home quite a bit due to my sick leave, I’ve had more time to be in the kitchen *also since my mom is away*. This week we wanted to try something different from our usual spread, so we remembered something my mom used to do in the past. TWICE BAKED POTATO ~ it’s easy and fun to make, because you can add all the things you’d want on a regular Baked/Loaded Potato.

Here we go:

Eat Outs // Seafood Saturdayyyss

Hey Guys!!

Welcome to October!! It’s a new month, and by now you know how the saying goes: “New month, new goals, new blessings etc etc” I hope it’s all good for you and me both. This month also happens to be my birth month *23 more days*. However, let’s not get into that today; yesterday I decided to try out a new restaurant and here’s a mini review.

Bay House Restaurant & Bar

Over the past few weeks the restaurant started having a special on weekends (Friday – Sunday) with discounted drinks, free shots, music from a live DJ and special menus. Saturdays were dedicated for seafood, which is one of my first loves, so why not visit? They’re open from 12p.m. for lunch, but we got there around 5p.m. for the drink specials. It’s been really cloudy the past few days, so the sunset wasn’t as spectacular as I know it could have been. The view is still pretty beautiful though.

Eat Outs // OJ’s Beach Bar & Restaurant

Hey Guys!!

This past Sunday took us a little south of the island in search of some good food.
The first place we went to was closed, so we quickly decided on a second option which was relatively close by. It also happened to be my first time being at this restaurant.

The general atmosphere was very relaxing and more than expected when entering first. There’s a wide variety of seating available and we opted for upstairs which had the open view of the sea.

Eat Outs // Garden Grill

Hey Guys!!!

Happy Tuesday & I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Since I returned home last summer I made a list of restaurants I’d love to visit.
Well, one year later I finally made it to one of my top places.

Garden Grill

Located at Dutchman’s Bay near the airport, Garden Grill serves as a rather open, friendly, picturesque restaurant. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on select days. We opted for lunch on Saturday afternoon.

Before you enter, you’re greeted with chalkboard signs welcoming you as well as views of the garden and a pool that you’re welcomed to use. It’s an outdoorsy setting; seating arrangements are under a canopy. Unfortunately, Saturday was incredibly hot so there wasn’t any breeze really. Thus it was slightly uncomfortable.

Hey Guys!

So, last Saturday while grocery shopping the idea of tacos came to mind. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for some time now but always forgot. Well, finally I did it. This concoction was simply me going off the top of my head, so a few things may be missing.

Ingredients

  • Soft Taco Shells
  • *seasonings for meat*
  • Chicken Breast
  • Steak
  • Sweet Pepper
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Sour Cream

Eat Outs // Pari’s Pizza + Steakhouse

Hey Guyss!!
Happy Friday!!

This week has been a long one yet still a quick one, if that makes any sense. However, on Tuesday we celebrated my baby sister’s graduation from high school. She received many awards and we simply couldn’t end the night without celebrating. Since it was a week night we settled for a pizza night.

Our choice was PARI’S PIZZA + STEAKHOUSE.

It’s located just behind Rex Halcyon Cove and only 10 minutes from town. It was recently renovated and has been established since 1977. The overall environment is very welcoming and relaxed. It is a great area for families and kids, as well as groups (coworkers/friends). As mentioned earlier we came specifically for PIZZA; we ordered two large ones to share.

Good Vibes at Ana’s

Hey Guys!!

We’re already in the third week of May which means that SUMMER is close. My motto for this year is “Good Vibes Only“; no time for “bad vibes” or anything negative.

One of my good friends came home to Antigua for the week and before he left I wanted to spend a little time with him. We went out on Friday for drinks and other shenanigans then decided to chill on Saturday for lunch.

After much deliberation we settled for Ana’s on the Beach.
