Taste of Cayman: Karma

12 Flares 12 Flares ×

It’s been a looooong time since The Deep Dish first visited Karma.  It’s one of the early posts that makes me laugh when I see the quality of the pictures.  Bless my little newbie heart. But! We’re all continually learning how to make our blog better and the photos more drool-inducing.

Chef Aaron Malloy is constantly changing things up at Karma and pushing the boundaries on innovative and inspired dishes.

Tis the season to be souping and the Taste of Cayman 2013 participant knocked my socks right off with this stunning butternut squash soup. Creamy doesn’t begin to describe this autumn-in-a-bowl soup, and with Karma’s new garden starting to blossom, I reckon future versions of this will be even more flavorful.

The lines at Karma’s booth during Taste of Cayman are known for being out of control. Their kobe sliders are worth pushing down granny for.  That being said, Chef Aaron is ready for a reboot.  Perhaps he’ll try these snarfable 5 spice duck chili lettuce wraps! (hint hint)

We were also treated to this super-quirky Tuna Tartare with pickled watermelon and a scotch bonnet vinaigrette.  It was served with homemade watermelon sorbet and poppadoms.  Your brain may trail a little behind on this one but once it catches up the ‘wow’ factor is well worth the delay 🙂

I managed to sneak into the kitchen for a few minutes and snap a few shots of some of the other items on the menu.

And you know me…its not a meal without dessert!  That’s homemade concord grape sorbet.  Holy. Yum.

This year’s Taste of Cayman is January 26th at Camana Bay.  Karma is just one of many fabulous restaurants that will be on hand with samples of their delicious fare 🙂

  5. Karma seems to abound with good karma in edible form. It would be a big dilemma to decide which one to order.

    Your blog is constantly evolving and your doing a great job here! Just look at those fabulous food porn pictures. what a tartar! O.O Its kind of weird to see a Sanskrit name for a restaurant in the Caribbeans. So if you have a good Karma you get to eat the best food there? =P
