Tan Marikita’s Café: Where breakfasts are served to perfection all day long

BREAKFAST, although normally eaten early in the morning, does not necessarily have to be eaten early in the morning. Some people especially those who go to bed late and get up late, breakfast is also postponed until it can even be considered as brunch or in between breakfast and lunch. Very few restaurants open early to serve breakfast on Saipan, and when it’s past 10 a.m. they move...

Hot and spicy lunch by the seaside

THE first thing that registered on our faces when the food staff of Seaside Restaurant on Beach Road placed our orders on the table was disbelief. We were shocked at the huge plates and generous servings that we knew at first glance we would never finish them all, no matter how hungry we were. It was past 1 p.m. and it took some time for our order to...
