The Best of NileGuide
Despite its seemingly minute population, Agana and the rest of Guam offer a selection of culinary delights appropriate for people with a variety of tastes. Large and small restaurants, casual stalls and gourmet selections are all on the menu, with flavors from Korea, Japan, Thailand, France, Spain, and even Italy and Mexico all making their way into the mix alongside local favorites.
Perhaps the most bountiful and sought after dishes are those that take into consideration the island's most abundant resource, seafood. From the stalls in Chamorro Village to the high-quality continental options found in hotels, you'll find your fair share of fresh lobster, octopus and fish baked or grilled in a typical Pacific-Islander fashion. Expect diversity in the form of red rice, shrimp paddies and a Filipino-style noodle dish known as "pancit." Another popular local dish is "kelaguen," prepared from a mix of broiled chicken, lemon juice, grated coconut and spicy peppers. Depending on your taste for the spicy, you might choose to sprinkle some typical fiery "finadene" sauce over your dish, made from hot peppers, soy sauce and chopped onions.
In addition to the abundance of international cuisine available in Agana, you'll also find Western franchise restaurants dotting the island. For a taste of home, you're never too far away from a number of classic options in this American territory that was briefly occupied by the Japanese during World War II. From classic steakhouses to international favorites like Hard Rock Café, you might be surprised to find that dishes like barbecue ribs frequently appear on menus, now a staple dish in this Pacific retreat.
Long standing favorites among visitors are undoubtedly Niji's Japanese Restaurant, located in Tumon Bay, or even Prego Italian Restaurant, which are ideally located among the high-end hotels and more economic options within this beachside outpost. These options, alongside traditional Mexican food available at Carmen's Cha Cha, exemplify the culinary diversity that visitors indulge in while on vacation in Agana. Suitable for people with a distinct range of budget, an economic traveler can easily find a typical meal served piping hot in Chamorro Village, or they can indulge in a world-class culinary experience available at a five-star resort located along the coast.
