Get ready for Pacific Island cuisine in central San Diego! Guahan Grill will bring authentic Chamorro cuisine of Guam to Point Loma when it opens its second location this Saturday, January 21 in the 2,300 square foot space that previously housed Antique Thai Cuisine at 3373 Rosecrans Street in the Point Loma area.
Guahan Grill is owned and run by the Quichocho family, who opened their first location at 4259 Oceanside Boulevard in Oceanside nearly 6 years ago. The restaurant serves a menu of regional Chamorro cuisine including barbecue meats, red rice, empanadas, fried rice, noodles, stir fry, lumpia, and the Guamanian specialty Kelaguen, a dish of barbecue chicken mixed with green onions, lemon juice and hot pepper. The restaurant will also feature a selection of beer and sake.
"Guahan Grill represents our Chamorro culture but it's a place for all cultures and people to come and relax and relive the island experience," said co-owner Carlos Quichocho.
The Chamorro people are the indigenous inhabitants of the Mariana Islands, a politically divided territory of Guam. Like many of the Pacific Islands, Chamorro food is influenced by many cultures, including Japanese, Spanish and Filipino.
Guahan Grill Point Loma opens at 11am on Saturday, January 21. For more information, visit guahangrill.com and check out the menu below.
