for any guambats on island, just a notice: issin at the westin hotel is celebrating its 20th anniversary by offering a 30% discount on all items from the sushi bar. imo, issin is one of the best japanese restaurants on island, so i'd take advantage of this almost cheapness before it goes back to being über-pricy. we indulged today with some of their regular lunchtime specials: the issin bento pictured above, which includes prawn tenpura (tempura), grilled salmon and sashimi, and also the prawn tendon-six fat prawns on a bed of rice.
of course, we indulged with some spicy tuna rolls and spider soft shell crab rolls. the highlight of the meal, however, was the freshly grated wasabi horseradish that came with our sushi and sashimi. good stuff, that.
if you do go, you can always have an after meal coffee at the not starbucks in the westin lobby. guam lacks an actual starbucks franchise (which is not a bad thing, i don't think), but as the westin serves starbucks brand coffee in all their restaurants, they've got starbucks-esque drinks in their coffee bar. whoot. and cookies the size of your head.
but really, i would just go for the amazing view.
