Guam Food Guy's soup: Chowon Restaurant

The Guam Food Guy

Chowon Restaurant is becoming more and more a local favorite for those looking for a flavorful home-style Korean dining experience. I like to use the word “clean” when I describe Chowon because it is small and really has a bright, relaxing ambiance. It is usually filled with Korean customers, so you know you are getting the real deal when you are eating here.

If like me you are feeling the effects of a cold or flu, I can recommend a good soup available at Chowon. It’s their Kal-Bi Soup with Egg ($11.99). It comes with rice and panchan (side dishes). This kalbi soup reminds me of a good Chamorro kadu (beef shank soup) in that the rich beef broth is created from simmering the beef bones for a long time.
