What's Cooking?

Kirk, what cuisine is this? It's not Hawaiian, not Philipinos, not South East Asian...


ooh i can answer that! but i'll wait to see what you say first :)


Hi Michelle - It's Chamorro who are the indigenous people of the Northwest Pacific. As you can see, if you read Cathy's earlier post, the food of many other cultures has been assimilated, not only foodwise, but in the culture itself. I, and many other folks associate Chamorro cuisine with Guam.

Santos - I hope what I wrote was accurate.


not sure if we had chamorro cuisine when we visited saipan or palau...looks good!


I really liked it and The Mister says it "tastes like Guam". Glad to see you tried it. I now know the story of the teensy room/mystery door...


Hi Kat - Kelaguen is sort of like the Chamorro dish to eat.....

Hi Cathy - I just love Finadene...... I'm glad I got a chance to check them out.


hi kirk - i've been wanting to go here since i read cathy's post! one of my friends went there with her husband (he's chamorro) and he gave it his seal of approval (haha).

i love it when the finedene is super spicy!


These guys are at our street fair in Rolando every March and they're always a hit. Love 'em!


Hi CC - The finadene is not very spicy, but it's pretty good.

Hi James - I believe they are also at the Pacific Islander Festival as well.


Hi Kirk,

I love Finadene on just about anything!


Hi Mike - It's so nice to here from you! Have you tried it on cardboard yet??? It's really great... just kidding, but I think it would probably taste ok!
