Guam Diner Bytes: Chowon Restaurant
Chowon is ideal for those looking for a home-style Korean dining experience. It really has a bright, relaxing ambiance. It is usually filled with Korean customers, so you know you are getting the real deal when you are eating here.
If you are feeling the effects of a cold or flu, I recommend their Kal-Bi Soup with Egg ($11.99). It comes with rice and panchan. This Kalbi soup reminds me of a good Chamorro beef shank “kadu” in that the rich beef broth is created from simmering the beef bones for a long time.
It’s got a heartiness that revitalizes. There are some good sized chunks of tender beef still clinging onto small rib bones – delicious to the last bite! If you want a spicier soup, try the Spicy Beef Soup with Egg ($11.99).
