Chamorro Chip Cafe/Boston Pizza Company open a new facility in Tamunig
Well he has certainly done it this time!! “He”, to whom I am referring to, is entrepreneur and avid “biker” Bob “The Cookie Man” McLaughlin, founder of Chamorro Chip Cookies? Do you know anyone who has not tasted the crispy sweet mini cookies known as Chamorro Chips? They now have a new home adjacent to Applebee’s and the entrance to DNA Plaza. The large interior of the cafe is quite inviting and has a number of historic Chamorro art pieces depicting the lifestyle and activities of the ancient villagers. There are plenty of places available to sit down and enjoy your coffee beverages, smoothies, tea creations, or anything they make. I didn’t come here though to try the sandwiches, salads or cookies - I came for the PIZZA!
Yes I have a history with Boston Pizza! It was my first ever “review” if you could call it that! It was essentially how I began this process of becoming the Guam Food Guy! It was sometime around 2000 that I had tried Boston Pizza for the first time and today I went in to this new, modern facility (complete with drive thru window) and ordered one of these humongous 19” pizzas that Bob takes great pride in creating! I ordered the whole 19” pizza with Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, and Fresh Mushrooms. The total price for this over-sized pizza was $25.00. All it takes is one bite to know that this is no ordinary pizza! I tried one piece out of my take-out box while it was still piping hot! OMG! Food Nirvana!! These were large slices (first I had it cut into 8 pieces, then later 16 so I could take to my office where it caused a sensation!
Pizza can be purchased by the slice or whole. There are a number of topping selections available. The Veggie Pizza has tomato, peppers, mushrooms, onions, and black olives, all for $24.00 for the whole pizza or $4.25/slice. The sandwiches here are quite affordable, and mostly priced below $5.00. Even the beverages cost less than most I’ve seen at other coffee spots.
I can honestly say that Bob’s pizzas are downright awesome! He has been able to keep his recipes and tastes consistent and has trained his new young team quite well! They are so enthusiastic and eager to please! The Chamorro Chip Cafe has healthy choices as well, including their Signature Acai Bowl and Acai Smoothie. There is even the Sambazon Amazon Energy Acai Berry Energy Drink). It is a lightly carbonated organic beverage that is quite rich in anti-oxidants. For $4.00 it better be rich in anti-oxidants. The taste is pleasant so it’s not hard to swallow!
Congrats to you, Bob & Frannie McLaughlin! Thanks for making and creating these two amazing major brands - Chamorro Chips and Boston Pizza! Now they are together in their own building! Call to order take out or you can dine in! You can even drive thru for some drinks and a pizza slice of your choice! Fantastic!
