Top 5 Places to Eat in Guam



My dad, who wasn't able to go with us on our Guam trip, gave my sisters and I shopping allowance for the said trip. Since the only plan I had back then was to go to the beach, I offered my shopping money as food allowance for everyone. Thus, we were able to go food tripping during our second and third day. Anyway, here's a list of awesome and accessible food establishments that should be visited in Guam:

1. Jamaican Grill

Chicken and Ribs Family Platter - $52.95

Jamaican Grill is one establishment in Guam that people often go back to. During my previous visit, we were brought there by a family friend. So my mom and I made sure that we come back there with my sisters. Good thing we were there early (at around 11 in the morning), because it gets packed at around 12 noon. Must try are their Chicken and Ribs Platter and Kelangen. The chicken and ribs are seasoned well and grilled to perfection. They are neatly placed over a generous amount of rice. By the way, you may opt to have red rice instead of regular rice. Servings are huge and definitely worth the money. The platter costs $52.95 and it is already good for around 4 to 6 people.

How to get there via shuttle - Take the Hotel route of LamLam tours and get down at Pacific Bay - Stop 17 (North Bound)

2. Ajisen Ramen

Ajisen Ramen - $12

This place is something you would not notice because its entrance is located outside of GPO. But this place seem to be popular among locals. We were brought there by a friend from high school who toured us around later that day. The restaurant serves Japanese cuisine obviously but aside from ramen, they also serve other dishes such as curry rice. Must try are their classic Ajisen Ramen, Chicken Karaage, and Gyoza. One ramen dish only costs $10+ and it could feed one hungry person or even two individuals. 

How to get there via shuttle - Take the Hotel route of LamLam tours to GPO (South Bound) and get down at the last stop (Guam Premier Outlets). If coming from Kmart or Micronesia Mall, take the Shopping Shuttle to GPO. The entrance of Ajisen Ramen is near the drop off.

3. Restaurant Capricciosa

Squid Ink Spaghetti - $19.75

If you are craving for Italian, this place is the best in Guam. We went there during our last night and this place definitely capped it off. What initially brought us there is because there are no other decent restaurants near the area which isn't American or Japanese (cause that's all we had during most of our stay). And I'm glad we were able to try this place out. We had their famous Squid Ink Spaghetti which is good for 2 to 3 persons. Definitely a must try! We also had their Pizza Capricciosa which is loaded with bacon, bell pepper, pepperoni, and mushroom. I thought at first that it wouldn't be enough for the five of us, but it made us adequately full since we also ordered other dishes.

Pizza Capricciosa - $14.79
Calamari Frito - $7.99
Rice Croquette - $7.75

We were also able to try out their Calamari Frito as appetizer. It was good as coating is crunchy and the squid was tender inside. We actually got the Rice Croquette for free as we were given coupons during our Two Lover's Point tour for it. I wasn't really a fan of it, but I think kids will love it.

How to get there via shuttle -  Take the Hotel route of Lamlam tours and get down at Pacific Place - Stop 23 (Both North Bound and South Bound)

4. Eggs and Things

Hawaiian Loco Moco - $12.50, Sausage and Eggs - $10.00

A friend recommended this place to me before our trip. This breakfast joint from Hawaii is definitely a nice place where you can have breakfast. It is located near Guam Plaza Hotel so it's just walking distance from our hotel. The place gets really packed in the morning as you could see people lined up outside. Surprisingly, when we got there at a little before 8 in the morning, there was no line. Their system is quite organized. You choose and order food from outside the restaurant and pay there as well, then you get seated inside while you wait for your order.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes - $10.50

We had their Hawaiian Loco Moco, Sausage and Eggs, Chocolate Chip pancakes, among others. Everything was heavenly! The Sausage and Eggs meal was served with buttermilk pancakes and rice or potatoes. The serving wasn't really what I expected. I thought their meals would be good for sharing but each meal is good for one to two persons only. Each costed around $10 to $15. I have to recommend their coffee though. For only $3, you get unlimited servings of coffee. 

How to get there via shuttle - Take the Hotel route of Lamlam tours and get down at JP Superstore - Stop 21 (North Bound) or Outrigger/The Plaza - Stop 4 (South Bound)

5. GPO Food Court

Panda Express

If you are on a tight budget, this is the place to be. We went here to have lunch after we have arrived in Guam. It is usually packed with both tourists and locals but you may definitely share seats with other customers. Among the choices that are available to you would be Subway, Taco Bell, Panda Express, Sbarro, and more. There are even Chamorro restuarants so that you can try local dishes. 

How to get there via shuttle - Take the Hotel route of LamLam tours to GPO (South Bound) and get down at the last stop (Guam Premier Outlets). If coming from Kmart or Micronesia Mall, take the Shopping Shuttle to GPO. 

All of the restaurants here are accessible via shuttle or bus, which is the easiest way to tour the island. I haven't tried any restaurants that aren't within the bus route yet, but hopefully on my next visit I could go around in a car so I could update this list. Hope this blog post helps!
