Golden Spoons Review: China Village

Golden Spoons Review: China Village

| 23/06/2017 | 7 Comments

(CNS Foodie): Spoiler alert: I love Chinese food of all styles and regions. However, I admit to being less than enthusiastic about the authenticity and quality of the fare being served at Chinese restaurants in Cayman. Still, it was with some excitement and cautious optimism that I brought some c [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Yara

| 14/06/2017 | 11 Comments

(CNS Foodie): It was a weekday evening and I overheard that a new steakhouse, Yara (“place” in Taino), was opening its doors and I had to go check it out. I felt a bit evil going on their soft opening night, but I did try to take that into consideration. Regardless, I have returned twice and [...]

(CNS Foodie): Jerk chicken is one of those foods that elicits strong feelings among those who love it. With that in mind and admittedly one of those people, I made my way to Di Kit-Chin. The restaurant sits at the corner of Mangrove Avenue and Shamrock Road, right before the East-West Arterial ro [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Bacaro

(CNS Foodie): It was Sunday evening, after a day spent probably having too much fun in the sun, but my parent mode clicked on, reminding me, “Feed your children.” Then, I remembered Bacaro, the new little gem overlooking the water nestled within the Cayman Islands Yacht Club. The name is a Ve [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Blue Cilantro

(CNS Foodie): Having had many a standard Sunday buffet-style brunch, I thought it was time to try the equally reputable table-served brunch at Blue Cilantro. For anyone else so inclined, note that it is very popular, so I recommend booking ahead. I’m not sure I would bother requesting the [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Lola

Golden Spoons Review: Lola

| 04/04/2017 | 7 Comments

(CNS Foodie): A true city-style café is somewhat of an anomaly here in Cayman. Coffee houses, yes. Restaurants, yes. But where are those sweet spots, where one can grab a coffee, snack or meal and a glass of wine without going all out? Nestled neatly along the Paseo in Camana Bay is Lola, offeri [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Chicken! Chicken!

Golden Spoons Review: Chicken! Chicken!

| 30/03/2017 | 2 Comments

(CNS Foodie): Chicken! Chicken! sits in a corner of West Shore Centre (the pink one) on West Bay Road. Do not let the mundane location put you off because as soon as you walk in you are embraced by the warmth of the open rotisserie roasting chickens over a wood fire. The next thing to hit you is [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Anchor & Den Boulangerie Brunch

| 07/03/2017 | 2 Comments

(CNS Foodie): A friend’s birthday found us at the Marriott’s Anchor & Den Boulangerie Brunch recently, and while it’s a lovely array of traditional and unique brunch fare, I just don’t think it’s as comprehensive nor as delicious as one would expect for $79 per person (i [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Burger Shack

| 02/03/2017 | 8 Comments

(CNS Foodie): A homey little blue hut at one corner of Marquee Plaza (where the old cinema used to be) offering a big burger called out to me the other day. As I approached the Burger Shack, I couldn’t help but be optimistic that this retro-style establishment would deliver the goods. Another i [...]

Golden Spoons Review: The Brooklyn Pizza + Pasta

| 22/02/2017 | 3 Comments

(CNS Foodie): I was excited when I first heard about a pizza/pasta place opening in Camana Bay (because I love pizza). So when The Brooklyn Pizza + Pasta opened in 2015, I eagerly grabbed a quick bite with a friend but, unfortunately, wasn’t all that impressed. The pizza was either trying too h [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Eastern Star Fish Fry

| 15/02/2017 | 0 Comments

(CNS Foodie): East End is recognised for exceptional local food, with Sunday afternoons a traditional time for people to enjoy fried fish. From Bodden Town heading to the Eastern districts there are at least four establishments known for their fish fry, and my father and I stopped at one for some [...]

(CNS Foodie): If you are ever in the mood for some traditional Jamaican style food to order and carry out, Taste Buds is the place to go for some sumptuous food for good value. This cook shop is tucked away in the corner of Murryson Plaza off Eastern Avenue but you can’t miss it as there is [...]

(CNS Foodie): Browsing around Camana Bay, you may have crossed this small hub of healthy grub a few times. Located near Anytime Fitness on the north end of Market St, with a vintage bicycle propped at the entrance, is Jessie’s Juice Bar. When you hear the term ‘juice bar’, you may think of [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Star Island

| 21/11/2016 | 6 Comments

(CNS Foodie): Star Island on Cayman Brac is not a dinner venue. If you arrive for dinner you will likely find yourself at the only occupied table watching a series of customers collect take-away orders in an otherwise empty restaurant, which doesn’t make for the best ambience. Arrive at lun [...]
