Guam’s local cuisine will be put on the map thanks to a visit from a platinum-blonde TV celebrity.

The tiny food cart PDX671 shares Chamorro comfort food with its Portland, Ore., community and last week, it got a visit from the Food Network’s Guy Fieri.

Fieri is the host of the feverishly popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” which highlights hometown eateries across the country.

Former Guam residents Edward Calvo Sablan and his wife, Marie Sablan, own PDX671, which sits in a cart pod in their neighborhood Rose City Food Park.

The Sablans punch out local favorites such as chicken kelaguen, shrimp patties and fiesta plates.

They say the episode won’t air for another two to three months , but they’ll give Guamanians a heads-up once they’re notified of when it will be on Food Network.
