One ethnicity of food you don’t hear much of in Wichita is anything from Guam. It’s something I’m very unfamiliar with, but came across one online from a home-based business called Ka du Ku.
The moment I saw it, I knew I had to place an order. With it being a home-based business, orders are only placed through their Facebook page.
Their menu was fairly simple. It consisted of beef and veggie lumpia, shrimp patties, spam musubi, and spam fried rice. I reached out to them online and they had a plate special running for $12 that included their spam fried rice, 4 shrimp patties and 3 lumpia.
A different with their fried rice was that they used chamorro red rice instead of white rice. As for the shrimp patties, they were diced shrimp, mixed vegetables and covered in a batter then fried into a ball. I went with both of those items along with some of their spicy beef lumpia. The ordering was all easy to do via messenger online and he was able to the delivery the food in a very timely manner.
In the upper right-hand corner of the picture, you’ll see the shrimp patties. They may not look like much, but they were incredibly delicious. The shrimp flavor was toned down so it wasn’t so fishy tasting like some people may imagine. Between that and the mixed vegetables, it had a well-balanced flavor to them. They were also very soft and tender; restaurants could make a killing serving this as an appetizer.
The spam fried rice was a killer dish as well. There was some marinade on the spam that gave it a small touch of heat that livened up the fried rice and eggs. There was also a softer texture to the rice, but the spam gave it that added texture to compliment it. Overall, it was seriously some of the best fried rice I’ve had in town.
Fortunately, it kept getting better. The lumpia was by far the best I’ve ever had in Wichita. I think a lot of it had to do with the intense yet flavorful heat behind every bite. The lumpia itself was filling which was great but all I could focus on was how tasty they were. I wish I ordered a dozen.
That was my first experience with Guam food and it was a damn good one. I loved every second of it and immediately raved about it to my friends and now all of you.
