Savor the taste of the world one dish at a time
Pick a day, pick a dish. Each day of the week is a feast of specialty cuisine at the Hilton Guam Resort and Spa’s Islander Terrace.
The Hilton has launched a new line-up of culinary theme nights at the Islander Terrace, courtesy of Chef Kamel Dahmani, the hotel’s new executive chef. New dinner theme nights range from all time street food favorites and seafood selections to Asian specialties.
The samplers spread during the soft launch night included juicy grilled salmon, seaweed salad with tender calamari, bite-size cone-shaped wrap stuffed with poki, couscous salad, fresh spring rolls, and meat curry among others. Monday is an evening of “Island Life,” featuring tropical favorites from the Pacific, South Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean.
Get “The Bowl” on Tuesday, fill it with noodles, rice selections, broths, vegetables, sauces and spices. Wednesday is “Street Food” night when you get casual with food truck specialties such as breaded fried chicken. Go Asian on Thursday for “Vietnamese House” featuring “aromatic flavors” that adhere to Vietnamese culinary traditions.
Dive into “Deep Blue Friday” for culinary selections from the bounties of the ocean.
On Saturday, the chef will surprise your with “Food Trends.”
Sunday is Mediterranean treat.
