Although priced competitively with traditional fast food, this is not fast food. Each taco is made to order, from scratch, like a piece of art.
The Hawaiian Kalua pork taco is filled with lomi lomi salmon salsa, pineapple coleslaw, lime cream and green onions. The ahi tuna poke taco is loaded with fresh mango avocado salsa, wasabi avocado aioli, cabbage slaw, and cilantro.
Dine in or call in your order for an event or office party. Enjoy the new outdoor patio, a great place for you to hang out a night with family or friends and share some awesome tacos.
Tumon Tacos is located on the first floor of the Comete Building in the UnderWater World lobby. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The phone number is (671) 649-6637.
Introducing, Songge Guam — the newest addition to the food truck community on island, offering delicious artisan pizza and good vibes!
What makes this pizza so special? It’s wood fired! Yup, you heard right! Their brick oven was built by a friend in Seattle using bricks from his native land of Sicily. Tangan tangan and fresh coconut heat the oven to upwards of 800 degrees Fahrenheit, cooking a pizza in under five minutes. Sourcing fresh, locally grown ingredients is one of their main goals. The Påire’ Pesto is a must try!
Not feeling so adventurous? Not a problem. They have many other toppings to choose from. Did we mention they even have dessert pies like chocolate hazelnut spread and shredded coconut? Is your mouth watering yet?
You can typically find Songge Guam at the Mangilao Night Market on Thursdays (weather permitting), and private events.

Mighty Purple Cafe
Living on Guam, it’s safe to say we are always in need of something refreshing to cool us off. Mighty Purple Cafe has you covered.
If you order any of the acai bowls, you probably won’t steer away from them when you return. They are that good. The Mighty Monkey Bowl is one of their most popular items and includes bananas, granola, almond butter, cacao nibs, honey and coconut. They also offer seasonal bowls, like The Pitaya (dragonfruit) bowl. It’s so pretty you almost don’t want to eat it! The Li Hing Fruit Bowl (sweet and sour seasoning) is full of different textures from crisp and crunchy to soft and sweet. You can add fruit to any of the freshly squeezed gourmet lemonades which adds that perfect touch.
They even have smoothies, Månnge Pops and a bread bar. Try one of their sandwiches or bagels made with homemade taro bread, which, by the way, is purple! Now that’s mighty rad!
They are dedicated to sourcing locally grown ingredients when possible, giving it that extra flavor, while supporting Guam’s farmers.
Mighty Purple Cafe is open Monday and Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, Wednesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can find them in Agana on Aspinall Avenue (in between Clans by Crowns Guam and Hagatna Precinct). Food truck coming soon!
The Boka Box
Eating healthy can sometimes be a challenge with the time and effort you have to spend on grocery shopping, prepping, and of course the actual cooking. With our busy schedules, it’s not always easy to accomplish. That’s where The Boka Box comes in.
The Boka Box is Guam’s first nutritionally sound meal preparation service. Their mission is to help people establish a good solid nutrition foundation that supports a healthy lifestyle by providing nutritious meals and education.
All meals follow a Paleo foundation which means fresh foods rather than processed. The Boka Box tries to mimic the eating habits of our Chamorro ancestors and focus on providing meals rich in vegetables, fruits, proteins, nuts, and seeds. No grain products, dairy products, or beans or legumes are used. Meals are prepared daily using the freshest ingredients from local farms.
Scared it’s just going to consist of salads and bland veggies? Think again. Kabocha chili, pork stir fry with baked red potatoes, and grainless apple waffles and ham are just a tease of what’s on the menu. Not to mention the mouth watering baked Paleo desserts like the almond vanilla chocolate ganache with coconut cream and blueberries. Yum.
Follow The Boka Box on Facebook and Instagram to see what’s cookin’ and special Hafa Friday Paleo Meals.
The Boka Box is located in the heart of Hagatna off of Route 4, above Nicole’s Boutique. Hours are Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
