It’s that time of year again when our good and long-time friend Dr. Jonathon Morris, a Portland, Maine-based psychiatrist, makes his two-week visit to Guam where he volunteers his time at the Department of Mental Health, something he’s been doing for over 20 years!

Although he usually brings two or more graduate students for in-service training, he was accompanied by Elizabeth Burch, who was so impressed by the Green Door’s signature tofu steak that we had to order it twice! She’s intent on re-producing it when she gets back to the States (good luck!!).

Not only did she love the Tofu Steak, she was delighted by the chicken salad, fried garlic, fried shrimp and Katsu’s uniquely succulent and savory ribeye steak! Dr. Jon always sets up his interns by making “the Green Door Dinner with The Guam Food Guy one of the highlights of their Guam visit!

Of course, I always manage to rise to the occasion and orchestrate my food tour at Green Door with a gleeful panache, though I did spill my soup bowl. Katsu’s owner/manager, Yokho Soma, was the perfect hostess and obliged us again by posing with us for our annual reunion photo!
