5 More Amazing Foods from Guam

I just can’t get over how good Chamorro food tastes. The recipes are so unique, and the flavor is just so rich. The mix of spicy and sour in many of the recipes makes for a fantastic change from my usual dishes. I think that everyone should give Chamorro food a try at least once. It is hard to find someone who did not like a few different Chamorro styled dishes. Here are five more of some of my favorite foods from Guam.

Shrimp Patties

If you are in to eating seafood, then this is the dish for you. These are made with vegetables and shrimp. The patty is held together with dough and has a very satisfying texture. They are surprisingly simple to prepare if you have all the ingredients set out and ready to go. Just don’t be shocked to make too many on your first go, since they do tend to be a bit filling.

Cucumber Salad

Now, this may seem like it isn’t really that special considering all of the other recipes that are on this list, but trust me, this food is actually incredible. Of course, what sets it apart is the sauce on it. This goes along very well with BBQ and rice. The spiciness from the pepper is sure to leave your mouth watering for more.

Coconut Candy

This is a very simple food and is so sweet and savory that you will have trouble resisting making another batch. It is a basic combination of coconut gratings and sugar melted down into balls. The servings are also very small.

Kadon Pika

This is a spicy stew that is usually made with chicken. The hot peppers give it the spice, and the chicken is marinated with peppers and coconut milk to give it a nice flavor. If you are visiting any of the Mariana Islands, then be sure to find somewhere local that serves this dish. In Guam, there are plenty of locations that serve this.

Beef Tinaktak

This is definitely one of my favorite foods that I had in Guam. It is a very simple blend of ground beef or steak with vegetables. If you want it to have some spice, then just throw in some hot peppers and you are all set.

Whenever you visit Guam, you should definitely try to find a local restaurant that serves any of these dishes. They will not disappoint.
