The secret to the bold flavors at Cajun Island starts with the house's spicy broth. Chefs boil freshly-caught seafood such as dungeness crab, lobster, crawfish, and oysters in the savory base, then crank the flavor factor up by treating each morsel to a wet rub––an organic sauce made with butter, garlic, herbs, and a special blend of spices. This combination of flavors makes its way onto most dishes on the menu, from the Cajun-roasted corn to the all-you-can-eat Cajun shrimp or crawfish. And although the chefs do specialize in the hotter end of the spice spectrum, they can tame down the burn by swapping in savory butter rubs with herbs and garlic or by wrapping each crab leg in a tiny fire blanket. Of course, the hot tastes do pair well with the restaurant's other specialty: tropical drinks, creating a delightful contrast of fruity and fiery flavors.

Q&A with Diane, Co-owner

Has your business won any awards?

Grub Hub has just awarded us the Customer Favorite award. Of course, it is for the lomo saltado.

Do you use any family recipes at your restaurant? Whose family do they belong to (the chef, the owner, or someone else)?

Absolutely, all the food is made from passed down recipes. Chef and co-owner Erika has a very close relationship with her grandparents. Her grandparents helped raise her, [and they] love to cook. Her Abuela (Grandma) Lula occasionally comes to the restaurant to sample the authenticity of her recipes. If the taste is not up to her standards, she is not shy to correct her Erika. Luckily, so far, all the food has been a thumps up from Abuela. Abuela makes the best Peruvian flan.

Erika's Papito (Grandpa), traveled about 20 miles to our restaurant to show us his ceviche recipe. He made us promise that we would not share the recipe with anyone. Shhh!

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

Our menu is very traditional. We have popular Peruvian dishes and drinks.

Our most popular dish is the lomo saltado, which is fresh strips of meat or seafood flamb?ed in our wok with onions, tomatoes, and french fries served with rice. If you ask anyone if they have tried Peruvian food, they would answer that they love the lomo saltado.

If you are up to the challenge, the anticucho de corazon?cow heart skewers?is delicious. The anticucho de corazon is grilled meat on a stick that comes with a potato that has the anticucho sauce brushed on for a wonderful flavor. In addition to the meat skewer and potato, the green-onion dipping sauce is good enough to dip everything with.

For the pasta lovers, my favorite is the tallarin verde con pollo, which is spaghetti noodles covered with traditional pesto sauce, topped with seasoned, breaded, and golden-fried chicken.

Erika, makes the best chaufa (fried rice). Every culture has their own version of fried rice, but Peruvian fried rice contains bite-size bacon. Anything that has bacon is delicious.

We didn't forget about the vegetarians. We can make the saltado dishes with tofu or mixed vegetables. The chaufa can be requested without bacon. Nonetheless, the tallarin verde pasta can be ordered plain, minus the meat.

For those with a sweet tooth, we have Lucuma ice cream, churros, and alfajores cookies. The cookies are the best sellers. We enjoy looking at the customers' reactions when they take their first bite of the cookie. Obviously, the first bite [brings a] look of satisfaction. The cookie is made with dulce de leche sandwiched between two short-bread cookies and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

For kids, we have the favorites: Chicken fingers with fries, pasta, and salchipapas. Salchipapas are fried hot dogs served with fries. Kids just love eating salchipapas.

Overall, our menu has something for everyone.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Feel free to come in to meet the chef and co-owner, Erika.

At Georgio's Pizza & Subs, the Meat Lovers pizza has to contend with the Athena: a pesto-covered disk decked in roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, eggplant, feta cheese, and pine nuts. The Athena is just one of four vegetarian combinations that share menu space with 10 other specialty pies, such as the barbecue chicken and the classic margherita. Though their topping options span a wide spectrum, all of them lie atop hand-spun, housemade dough.

The word housemade permeates much of the Italian menu, preceding several of its pasta sauces, the meatballs in its submarine sandwiches, and the breadsticks in its appetizer section. Salads, calzones, and calamari constitute savory side plates, and slices of original New York–style cheesecake conclude meals with the rich decadence of some French palace.
