The house needed fumigating. Boo.  This meant we couldn’t stay home. Time to book a holiday in East End!  We got a tour of Rum Point Club Restaurant during the Taste of Cayman 2012 series.  It’s a nighttime joint and we were there for lunch so we didn’t get to sample the fare. We visited the Wreck Bar & Grill instead but I filed this restaurant away for future ‘must try’ reference.

Let’s get this party started!

I love a meal that starts off with an amuse bouche.  Chef teased Clark Kent and I with these lovely spicy chorizo bites with guava mayo.  I could have done with them being a tad warmer but the flavor made up for any temperature shortfalls. The mayo begged to be eaten by the spoonful.

For starters, CK had the trio of ceviche.  The fish featured were tuna, mahi mahi and wahoo served three ways: mango-basil, escovitch and Cayman style. CK was particularly fond of the escovitch and Cayman-style starters. I had the butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli with a Chardonnay cream sauce, pine nuts, red pepper coulis and arugula pesto.  Brilliant dish. The pesto pretty  much blew my mind.

This ain’t no shrimpy shrimp.

The seafood hot pot, CK’s main course, showcased lobster, scallops, mussels, clams, shiitake mushrooms and some monster shrimp. It must have been delicious because one minute the bowl is full and the next time I looked, the bowl was spotless and CK was licking his fingers.

Oh so spicy

I’m totally predictable, but I find you just cannot go wrong with the catch of the day.  I had blackened Mahi Mahi with garlic mash and fresh veggies in a coconut curry sauce.  They don’t mess around at Rum Point Club.  This dish cleared my sinuses in seconds.  The coconut curry sauce helped cool down this slow burn.  I’m a masochist.  Loved it.

Dessert was a port for CK and a slice of this gorgeous guava cheesecake for me.  While it wasn’t the most dazzling dish of the evening, this cheesecake rounded out the meal nicely.

This was a lovely evening in East End and for Cayman, it’s always a treat to try out a new restaurant.  The outdoor seating was brilliant and really added to the overall experience.  Thumbs up from The Deep Dish.
