Guam is in the western Pacific Ocean and is an organized, unincorporated territory of the United States. It is one of five U.S. territories with an established civilian government. The island's capital is Hagatna. Guam is the largest and southernmost of the Mariana Islands.
The cuisine of the island of Guam bears similarities to that of the Philippines, says rumgum. Both were occupied by Spain, so many dishes have a Spanish flavor, though of course there are Asian influences as well. Steamed rice is the main starch on the island; for example, red rice, cooked with achiote and onions, is a common fiesta food.
