U.S. Capitol dining room celebrates cuisine of Guam

Dishes included shrimp patties and pork adobo with rice.

June 20—The U.S. Capitol’s Members’ Dining Room recently celebrated the cuisine of Guam.

This is the second year the Members’ Dining Room created a menu showcasing several dishes from Guam. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo invited Chris Bejado, owner of PROA Restaurant and recipient of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 2013 Small Business Person of the Year Award for Guam, to join her for lunch. Bejado and his family are currently in town visiting family and to celebrate Small Business Week.

This culinary spotlight on Guam is a part of the “Celebrate America” theme in the Members’ Dining Room that showcases classic dishes from every state and territory. The three-course Guam menu included shrimp patties, pork adobo with rice, and latiya for dessert.
