Guam Diner Bytes: Delmonico Kitchen & Bar
There’s something special about Delmonico in the Bayview Hotel and that something special is the Executive Chef, Eddie Chien. His mastery of culinary has been demonstrated many times over the past twenty years.
I stopped by Delmonico one night after missing the deadline to try out their Dinanache Burger, which is part of their 365 Burger Promotion, or as I call it their “Burger- thon”! They are creating a new burger variation each day for a year with zero repeats and serving these during lunch, which ends at 2pm.
So, I had dinner instead, and couldn’t decide if I would have steak or a fish dish for dinner. I opted for the Fresh Salmon ($16) Teppan Cajun Seared with Lemon Soy Butter Sauce. This was an utterly delightful dish, with the salmon cooked perfectly. Eddie’s sauce creations are magical, and the lemon soy butter sauce married well with the salmon and its Cajun dusted surface.
I returned the next day after finding out on Delmonico’s FB page what their burger feature would be today. I saw it was the Muenster Burger (#21 in the series) . It was a juicy Angus burger with smoked Muenster cheese and a nice red tomato slice, crisp lettuce and toppings. I wasn’t sure which side of the burger to approach as it was fairly large. The meal sells for $12 and comes with seasoned fries and your choice of salad or soup.
I can’t wait until my next burger experience! Eddie’s always coming up with something new and different and delicious!
