So Clark Kent and I used to be reporters in Houston. Do you know how much news there is in Houston? Lots, that’s how much. Life is much better in Cayman. We had a little blast from our past this month with the visit from KTRK reporter Miya Shay
who was in Cayman to OD on scuba-diving. She made a valiant effort managing 12 dives in just a few short days. She set aside some time to have dinner with us at Calypso Grill
…a seafood lover’s heaven.
Calypso is nestled in Morgan’s Harbor in West Bay and boasts some of the best patio seating in Cayman. We snagged a spot right over the water and caught an incredible breeze that kept us comfortable and sexy as we all rocked our ‘windblown’ looks. At Calypso, the best bet is to go with whatever the specials are.
CK started with the ceviche. He swears its the best in Cayman. That’s saying something too because our little island KNOWS how to make ceviche. I had the tuna sashimi and it was pretty impressive. It had a lovely texture and an outstanding flavor. You could tell it was caught the same day. A fellow diner at our table went with the arugula salad. Thumbs up.
Seafood stayed the main attraction as we ordered our entrees. From left to right: snapper montecarlo, blackened mahi mahi and wahoo escovitch. I didn’t get the word on the montecarlo but my mahi mahi was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The spice gave it a lovely kick on the back end without leaving your nose runny. CK’s escovitch rivaled Chef Gilbert’s from The Cracked Conch
. I think we need an eat off! I’m happy to be a volunteer judge.
Dessert was a no-brainer. Miya had already been told by people she met during the trip to have the sticky toffee pudding. I’ve had it before. Droolable. I settled on the mango crepe with coconut ice cream. Words can’t describe how yummy is was. But then, y’all know I’m a mangophile.
I didn’t catch all the prices on this one but here’s a couple just for reference:
Sashimi – $12.00
Wahoo Escovtich – $27.50
All prices in CI. $1 CI = $1.20 US.
