Guam Diner Bytes: Roasts, Reds, & Rendezvous Sundowner Event
Every May the Hyatt Regency Saipan runs a promotion called Roasts, Reds, & Rendezvous with sponsors Triple J FiveStar and Pacific Trading. Fine wines are paired with succulent certified Angus beef creations prepared by the Hyatt’s award-winning culinary team. The month-long promotion takes place in several Hyatt outlets, including Giovanni’s and the Kili Terrace.
I have been honored to be invited to attend the culmination celebration, called the Sundown event, which takes place on Micro Beach fronting the Hyatt. This is truly a place of mesmerizing natural beauty.
The Hyatt culinary team, under the leadership of Executive Chef Gabriele Colombo, prepared an elaborate feast for their casually dressed guests to savor while sipping on a selection of Murphy-Goode Wines. Among some of the awesome menu creations were churrasco beef striploin skewers, red & green chimichurri, coffee-rubbed short ribs with nectarine salsa. There was also Indonesian seafood pops with lemongrass peanut sauce; beef linguica sausage, red onion and corn relish; pork belly skewers with spicy sriracha sauce and cabbage slaw.
Lean Colorado buffalo albondigas with cucumber raita and roasted tomato. orzo salad with roasted bell pepper, cilantro and pancetta chips; and Island organic greens, shaved mango, cherry tomato, candied walnut with a white balsamic fine herbs vinaigrette were served as well. Of course, there was a fabulous dessert selection! This is certainly an event you should plan on attending in the future. I am!
