Guam Food and Drink

A wide selection of restaurants features American, Chinese, European, Filipino, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean and Mexican food. Guamanian cooking is very similar to Spanish cuisine. Expect to see American franchises like McDonalds, KFC, Hooters, Hard Rock Café, as well as the upscale Roy's in the Hilton Hotel.

A local favourite, the seaside Jeff's Pirate Cove (tel: 789 2683/1582) serves everything from breakfast, steaks and fresh seafood, to local delicacies.
