Savor the Exotic Flavors of Wharf: 11 Must-try Dishes to Satiate Your Palate

1. Fresh Local Catch 

Embarking on a culinary adventure calls for sampling something fresh and luscious. What’s better than gobbling fresh local catch blackened and grilled in Mediterranean style? Our sea-to-table restaurant in Cayman hooks juicy shrimps, flaky salmon, and succulent lobsters to prepare a seafood feast gratifying your soul. 

2. Classic Caesar Salad

Want a guilt-free yet nutritious alternative to relish? Then our Classic Caesar Salad will be your next healthy treat. It’s scrumptious and crunchy, loaded with fresh veggies like Romaine lettuce and anchovies.

Our sous chef pours Caesar dressing whisked with ingredients like garlic, anchovy paste, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Finally, the salad is topped with shredded parmesan cheese and croutons. 

3. Caribbean Lobster Bisque

A warm, creamy, and chunky delight that is sure to become your next comfort meal. This rich soup is boiled by combining Caribbean spiny lobster shells, herbs, and spices to enhance the natural flavors and aromas.

Once the soup is infused with authentic, whole spices and the meat becomes tender enough to melt in the mouth, our Executive Chef strains and blends it with full cream for a smooth and velvety texture.

For the final touch, the chef tops it off with fresh dill and puff pastry stick to give an extra crunch.

Caribbean Lobster Bisque is one of the best foods in the Cayman Islands, and it is sure to top the charts of your heart and become your favorite meal too. 

4. Quinoa - Vegetable Cakes

Veganities get ready to taste the delightful combination of flavors and textures. Quinoa - Vegetable Cakes are wholesome and loaded with finely chopped veggies, including mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, bell peppers, and onions. Once everything is assembled, the chef shapes it into small patties and pan-fried until golden brown.

These vegetable cakes are served with a tangy and spicy romesco sauce, enriching the flavors to the next level. 

5. Cracked Conch

Your dine-in experience at the Wharf would always remain incomplete without trying out Cracked Conch. This popular Caribbean and Bahamian cuisine is worth every bite. The tender and juicy meat is pounded with a mallet, coated in a seasoned batter of breadcrumbs, and deep-fried in a skillet until crispy.

Cracked Conch is accompanied by a zesty cucumber salad and spicy mango aioli as a dipping sauce. 

6. Halloumi Cheese

This delectable and cheesy dish was originally cooked in the eastern Mediterranean, specifically on Cyprus Island. However, its unique flavor profile, salty, tangy, and sweet with a firm yet rubbery texture, made it a global sensation.

While there are numerous ways to cook and eat this incredible dish, our sous chef grills it with other vegetables like zucchini and tomatoes. Halloumi Cheese is perfect for bon vivant seeking to explore international cuisine.

This North American dish is more than just a salad. It is nutritious and nutty, filled with various textures and vibrant colors. Wild Rice Salad is an equal mix of fresh vegetables, including avocado, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onions, scallions, and tortilla crunch, and herbs like parsley, basil, and cilantro.

To top it up, the chef prepares a tangy and sweet pomegranate vinaigrette with ingredients like olive oil, pomegranate juice, rice vinegar, white sugar, shallots, garlic, white pepper, and salt. 

8. Diver Sea Scallops

Diver Sea Scallops quite literally refers to a method of harvesting scallops from their natural habitat by professional divers. This dish is widely known for its exceptional quality and mouthwatering taste.

It is seared and served alongside risotto with asparagus as a topping. Finally, the chef uses truffle dressing to complement the ingredients and flavor profile of the dish.
