Guam Diner Bytes: Lago Cafe Restaurant - Father's Day Treats
I had the pleasure of venturing out on Father's Day at the Lago Cafe Restaurant with the specific purpose of trying out some of my friend, Chef Donn Gueniot's Father's Day Brunch & BBQ Extravaganza creations. I met Chef Donn on Saipan and he's now the new Chef at Lago Cafe. He has been making some big flavor waves with his Cajun-inspired cuisine. One of my favorite items was his Creole Creme Style Corn Soup, which I could have eaten all day had it not been for the several helpings of the addictively delicious Roast Pork Belly sprinkled with Rosemary anointed with finadene! I had two trips for his savory BBQ Pulled Pork Butt (smoked for 14 hours) and his Rotisserie Chicken with Bourbon BBQ Sauce! I also indulged in home-made corn bread that I relished with Chef Donn's Slow-cooked BBG Baked Beans! I had a few other items (poki, lomi lomi salmon, salads, and some beef and other food - that's the trouble with buffets - too many plates and too many choices...the good thing is that you can get your exercise while you are walking the food lines!! Chef Donn is also serving up some Cajun eats like Shrimp Etouffe and Gumbo which he serves as specials.
Congrats to the Leo Palace culinary team headed up by Executive Chef Chris Adams for making magic in the kitchens! Looking forward to more great food adventures at Leo Palace Resort. Stay tuned!
