Fork & Spoon: House of Sizzling doesn’t beat around the bush about its specialty: steak, pork, and seafood dishes served on a cast iron sizzling hot plate.
It is fast food but in a restaurant setting, according to Ray Boongaling, who owns the new restaurant with his wife, Joan. You place your order, the dish is prepared in just minutes, and it is served on a sizzling plate.
Fork & Spoon, which opened last Saturday at its Springs Plaza location in Gualo Rai, is inspired by the couple’s travel experiences.
“As foodies, my wife and I know the basic needs of people who are on the go but, at the same time, love good food,” Ray Boongaling said.
He said the restaurant is not only a place to eat but also to gather with family or friends. “We are still improving the décor of the restaurant but we want it to have a comfortable vibe so that people will always feel welcome,” he added.
Their menu include garlic steak bites, rice sisig, beef pepper rice, pepper squid, garlic shrimp, pork pepper rice and an 8-oz. New York steak. All items are affordable and absolutely delicious.
Having one’s dish served on a sizzling plate helps customer be creative about their food. “They can put sauces and add-ons like french fries, corn, rice,” said Ray Boongaling. “They can also choose how they want their meat and vegetables cooked, since the dish is on a sizzling plate.”
In the pipeline is a plan for Fork & Spoon to also serve non-sizzling dishes, for those who prefer their food that way.
Since the sizzling plate concept is popular worldwide, Fork & Spoon welcomes residents and tourists alike. “We welcome families, employees, students and even tourists to Fork & Spoon. They will definitely experience a different concept and taste as there is nothing like this on Saipan yet,” said Ray Boongaling.
Fork & Spoon: House of Sizzling is open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 9pm. For more information call (670)235-5626 and look them up on Facebook and Instagram, @forkandspoon.
