The Guam Reef & Olive Spa Resort, formerly known as the Guam Reef Hotel, has just opened a new restaurant in what used to be known as the Sango Japanese Restaurant. Japanese Restaurant Waon is the product of a focused renovation of the outlet which has beautiful ocean vista views from the main dining room and private rooms.

Guests who attended an opening reception earlier this week were treated to a sampling of Japanese favorites that will be featured at Waon, one of which was Chicken Yakitori, one of my favorite grilled meats. Other items sampled were Inaniwa Udon and steamed rice cooked in an earthen rice cooker.

A featured guest at the reception was the calligrapher/artist Maaya Sho whose colorful illustrations graced the walls of Japanese Restaurant Waon. I didn’t realize calligraphy could be so avant-garde! I can’t wait to try out Waon’s full menu.
