...tried & true Guam food, Chamorro dishes, and more!
CHAMORRO FOOD GROUPS
Chamorro food is a delicious mix of the islands, Spain, Latin America, the Philippines, Korea, Japan, and a sprinkling of America. Additionally, we have special groups of foods like alåguan, boñelos, kelaguen, gollai åppan, and such. If your favorite Chamorro dish doesn't have a food group, such as riyenu or stuffing, for example, it's listed further below.
During the Spanish occupation of Guam, the Spaniards brought men from around the world to the island, including many from the Philippines. Thereafter, Filipino workers brought their families. Thus, you'll find some Filipino foods that have been adopted to island life and Chamorro culture, and some foods that are entirely Filipino and are not a norm at Chamorro parties.
