Eat Like a Local in the Cayman Islands
One of the best ways to truly feel and see the local culture of an island is through their cuisine. The islands' flavors, recipes, and ingredients are like a window into the past—these signature dishes have been prepared for generations. With an emphasis on fresh seafood & spices, the local specialties are lobster, conch, turtle stew, and jerk chicken. Order over the counter at East Side Fish Fry and try the catch of the day with a side of local Caymanian vegetables or stop into Seymour's Jerk Centre on your way into George Town to taste their famous spicy rub.
