islaRae at Pika's Cafe 2010
Pika's Cafe supports local artists in a big way. I am thrilled to be this (2010) summer's featured local artist. On display is the Guahan Print Series- a set of 5 original photomontages created with love and passion for our island of Guam. The five prints include: Latte Stone ~ "Make Your Mark Mangoes ~ "Mannge (delicious) Nunu Tree ~ "Espiritu (spirit) Sea Turtle ~ "Protehi (protect) Sunset ~ "Mahalang (longing for home) Each 18x24-inch poster is $20. with 1/4 sales going directly to Japan earthquake & tsunami relief efforts. Sold prepackaged in a rolled tube, these make excellent off-island gifts to bring friends & family a taste of home.
Speaking of taste, Pika's Cafe is the most delicious Chamorro fusion restaurant on island! The tinaktak burger is served on spongy panini bread, which soaks up the sweet coconut milk sauce, making every bite a comforting trip. Fresh local green beans still carry their crunch, & they can even adapt it veggie-style (which they did for me) substituting a tofusteak doused in the same goodness. Biba Pika's!
