Obligatory Food Photos

Posted on March 25, 2012 by under Food and Drink, Travel.    





I didn’t take pictures at every meal at the resort, but here are a few food pictures for you. The resort food was okay. Lunches were mainly just burgers and fries. Dinners consisted of several courses because they always served soup first, then salad, followed by your main course, and dessert. There was always some kind of porridge at breakfast. The downside was that there wasn’t a lot of variety. You pretty much had to eat what was available. However, you’re fine as long as you’re not a picky eater. The resort employees were really nice, though. If you make your request known and they had the resources available, they usually made it happen.

My most favorite meal was lunch on Saturday. Everyone except for me, Brian, David, Donna, Viola, and her husband Lee went to Negril on a fishing trip. Our room is the top most level of the main building where the food is prepared. When I walked down on my way to the beach that morning, I smelled the most delicious aroma of curry. I asked what it was and if it was what we were having for lunch. They told me it was chicken curry and I immediately got excited. I love, love, love chicken curry!

Brian and I assumed that’s what we were having for lunch. When we told the others, they didn’t seem so thrilled. Not many people like curry, I guess. I think they were relieved when they found out that Sean was grilling burgers for lunch. On the other hand, I was disappointed because I was really looking forward to having some chicken curry. I think Viola had a grilled cheese sandwich that day. I got a cheeseburger with a side of fries, which were pretty good. The fries were crispy just the way I liked them.

As we sat down at the dining table to enjoy our lunch, we got to talking about these two bowls next to the grill. Someone said that the staff told them that they had set it aside for someone who wanted some chicken curry. I lit up immediately because I knew it was meant for me. Thankfully, I’d only had a bite of my cheeseburger so I wasn’t full yet. I gave my plate of cheeseburger and fries to Brian and ran back to the grill to claim my lunch. They set aside a bowl of seasoned rice and a bowl of chicken curry specially for me. I found out later that they had made the chicken curry for the staff to eat at lunch and they saved me some because they found out how much I loved curry. That really made my day!

I can’t believe that the guests were having burgers and fries and grilled cheese sandwiches, while the staff was eating chicken curry and rice for lunch. I would rather have chicken curry any day! Donna tried a bite of the chicken curry and agreed it was delicious. I was like, “The staff is having chicken curry for lunch today. You all are getting jipped!” LOL.

I was really tempted to ask for whatever the staff was having at each meal after that, but I didn’t want to be a pain. I have to say that the chicken curry and rice I had for lunch that day was the best meal that I had in Jamaica on this last trip. Yes, I liked it even better than the lunch I had at Rick’s Cafe in Negril, which I will tell you more about in my next post. Stay tuned!
