Guam Diner Bytes: World Cafe's Sunday Brunch Extravaganza
If you’ve not been to Saipan’s World Cafe at the Fiesta Resort & Spa in a while, you will be amazed by the transformation of the furnishings as well as the state of the art buffet displays. But it is the food that makes all of this work so well and people are talking about the surprising improvements that have taken place in this new World Cafe.
Much of this can be attributed to the vision and creative inspiration of Executive Chef Roland Fitz. Although the Sunday brunch themes will change every week, for the month of October you can expect to celebrate Oktoberfest with a variety of German-inspired dishes.
We had the pleasure of dining at the World Cafe earlier this month and had the “German-themed” Sunday brunch, which featured a variety of German dishes from Chef Roland’s native country.
Among these entrees was pork schnitzel Vienna on warm potato salad, braised lamb gigot with blackeyed beans sauce, boiled beef in creamy olive and horse radish sauce, cream cheese terrine with capsicum cream cheese, light mushroom crepes, mustard eggs, boiled sausages, and Kaiser Schmarrn with prune compote (actually, apple sauce, raspberry compote, and strawberries).
The buffet boasted a whole roasted pig, rib roast, and crab legs galore, along with prawns, mussels, salmon, and seafood salads. Although some of the ingredients may vary each week, the World Cafe will always have a solid selection of seafood, prime rib, and fresh grilled meats and vegetables.
One of the great pleasures I have when I visit Saipan and the Fiesta Resort is the opportunity to see my long-time friend and living Saipan legend, David “Uncle Dave” Sablan, who is an executive with Tan Holdings.
We were able to get a photo with Uncle Dave, who was happy to meet my new wife Jin. He told her he knew me for many years and said that I was a good man! Now that’s an endorsement! I can also endorse the World Cafe’s Sunday brunch spread as being one of Saipan’s best! Be sure to make reservations before you come – this place fills up quickly!
