I had some of  the BEST barbecue the other day at the US Embassy.  The event was catered by Sweet Mama Rose Catering (  They don't have a restaurant; only do catering.  Oh.My.God!!!  Yummmm.

They had barbecued ribs, chicken, fried chicken, fried fish, hot wings, mac & cheese, broccoli cheese & rice, baked beans, corn on the cob, green beans, hot dogs, hamburgers, buffalo wings, fries, key lime pie, and lemon and red velvet cake.

I went back for seconds.  Seriously. They served HUGE portions of food for very little money (I don't know if that was just a deal for the embassy event or not, but seriously;  I got 2 meats, 2 sides, 1 veg and desert for 3KD.  What UUUP!

And they couldn't be nicer people. 

If you need a caterer - or if  you just need some good barbecue and it is too damn hot to grill it yourself - call these folks.  I highly recommend them.

Shout out to Sweet Mama Rose!  Thank you for a wonderful meal and great hospitality.

Tnny - I didn't ask; I just ate. I believe they were beef, however. Now, the throwdowns at MY house are another story.... :)
