On the Eastern shore about 30 minutes from George Town, this local fish fry shack is legendary. You'll smell the fish and oxtail stews which have been simmering all morning as soon as you get out of your car, despite the ocean breezes.  
 
In addition to herbed and fried local fish, they serve surprisingly good fish tea. Go very Caribbean with curried goat or mix it up with sweet and sour shrimp or garlic and lemon shrimp; it's all good. Dessert may include a Camanian classic, like cassava cake. 
 
This festive shack is decorated with conch shells and pictures of fish, and it's surrounded by a blue and white picket fence. Food is served under palapas at tables with built-in seats painted blue and orange. The side-of-the-road setting, the grounds with outdoor tables, the blackboard menu in front of the shack at water’s edge, all give this place a timeless feel of old Cayman and take you to a bygone era.
