Azzurro Cayman Islands

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , — CaymanBoy @ 10:01 pm

Now that I'm on a diet I'm always seeking out cafes and restaurants in Grand Cayman that make a nice salad. Sure Cafe del Sol, Blacktrumpet and others make a lovely Salad, but my quest has found Azzurro at Buckingham Square to be the best on island!

My history with Azzurro starts with the Pulcinela Sandwich which consists of Mozzarella Cheese and Parma Ham on a thick slice of bread. From this mouthful I moved onto their chicken wraps and finally settled with their HUGE Cobb Salads. In the last year I've topped this off with the best (small) cheesecakes in Cayman – Blueberry or Strawberry on top of White Chocolate Cheeseakes – yum yum (masarap po/aroy). Yes I know a cheesecake doesn't fit well with the diet but hey I'm trying!

Recently when venturing there at the weekends I've discovered a hidden gem – the Strawberry crepe with whipped cream. If anything can raise your mood on a rainy afternoon then this dessert must surely be it – actually I should add this to the best dessert in Cayman page.

Over The Edge in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , , , — CaymanBoy @ 8:19 pm

My last trip to this restaurant was a rather unpleasant affair primarily due to a grumpy French woman who took our order then promptly sat down at the bar and chatted to some friends – yes she forgot all about our food and drink. I'm pleased to report that on this latest visit there was no sign of her. As we'd normally stop at Over The Edge for lunch on the way to Rum Point I'd usually just order the BLT, but on this occasion we were there for a birthday lunch, so went for the conch fritters which we're tasty, but not as good as that of Portofino's which are simply the most delicious on the island. Although the waiter tempted me with some Cajun Chicken or a Steak covered with bacon (strange), I went for the Jamaican treat of Codfish with Ackee – this was a first, but thankfully it was also GREAT! Cimboco have a similar dish but I don't think it was quite as good at Over The Edges version. For the dessert I stupidly went for a slice of their chocolate cheesecake which I'd assumed would be "homemade" however upon arrival and tasting it, this was clearly a slice from a "pre-made" cake I last saw in the freezer at Cost-U-Less. This isn't a criticism of Cost-U-Less as one of my close friends works there! On the whole a nice experience, although I shall remember to avoid the cheesecake next time!
