Guam is a gourmand's
delight. Despite its relatively small population, the island
boasts an array of large and small restaurants serving high-quality
Continental meals, and most have Oriental menus as well.
Those who venture farther afield will be delighted by the many
Japanese, Korean, Thai, Western, Vietnamese, Filipino, Italian,
Mexican, and Chinese restaurants. And, yes, we have many
American fast food restaurants as well.
Fresh seafood is also bountiful. Fresh lobster, octopus, and
fish are either baked or grilled with vegetables or fruit, sashimi,
and in other uniquely Pacific ways.
Chamorro dishes are available in several smaller restaurants, in the
public market of Hagatna known as
Chamorro Village, and
at village fiestas. The diverse and delicious items include red
rice, shrimp patties, a Filipino-style noodle dish called pancit,
barbecued ribs and chicken and taro leaves cooked in coconut milk.
Another dish is kelaguen, usually prepared from broiled chicken, lemon
juice, grated coconut and hot peppers. Fiery finadene sauce is
made from soy sauce, hot peppers and chopped onion and sprinkled over
the food according to taste.
