Business is booming on Guam and that means lots of new choices for healthy eating, Indian food, and even New York-style Chinese!
Singh’s Cafe Kabob & Curry
You typically don’t expect to find quality ingredients, spices, fresh herbs, and vegetables in a mall food court but things are a changin’. Singh’s Cafe is the newest addition to Micronesia Mall.
With so many different flavor profiles including Mediterranean, Japanese, Indonesian and Thai, it’s hard to classify one type of cuisine that is offered. Shawarma, shish kabobs, and curry dishes swarm the menu with lamb, chicken or beef options. If you’d like a meatless option, ask about the vegetarian dishes, made with locally grown eggplant and pumpkin. Another bonus? MSG, artificial ingredients and coloring aren’t used either. The spicy yogurt garlic dressing is even homemade too. You sure can feel the love that’s put into making everything! Order some tasty creations Monday thru Sunday during mall hours from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Located at 1088 W Marine Corps Dr. in Dededo at the Micronesia Mall food court on the second floor.

New York Kitchen Restaurant
The northern part of the island just got even better. Yigo is now home to New York Kitchen Restaurant, serving Chinese dishes for lunch and dinner. Many describe it as “traditional East coast Chinese flavors.” Try the honey walnut shrimp if you’re craving something sweet and savory or szechuan style chicken, beef or shrimp if you’re looking for a kick. It’s hard to find the perfect egg drop soup but this place nails it. The restaurant is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. If you stop by Monday thru Saturday between 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., there are various specials to choose from. Prepare for wide eyes and a big smile when you see the price!
New York Kitchen Restaurant is located at 244 Chalan Gayinero, next to the Mayors office.
