your perfect dining out on a Sunday?
Dim sum breakfast with friends at Tropical Plaza in Halfway Tree; lunch with family at Crystal Edge in Irish Town – it’s home-style cooking, great atmosphere, followed by coffee and dessert at Café Blue right next door; date night, maybe a relaxed dinner at Sea Deck in Orchid Village – fried wings to start, followed by grilled lobster. After dark, up to Dub Club in Jack’s Hill, munch on fried saltfish fritters washed down with fresh fruit juices – with reggae music and a breathtaking view of the city of Kingston at night – the perfect end to my Sunday!
