The Rusty Anchor

We thought that we knew all the local restaurants in Pohnpei but we had missed the Rusty Anchor because of the outside appearance of the building.  The restaurant is located in the basement of this run down building on the outskirts of town.  We had driven by it dozens of times and had no idea of the gem hidden below.

 They specialize in steaks imported from the U.S. and pizzas.  The pizza is one of the best I have had anywhere.  It's a thin crust with lots of meat and the tomato sauce has three levels of spice.  We ordered the hot and it was very spicy but not so much that it overpowered the topping.  It just goes to show that even in a very small town one can find a hidden place overlooked for 11 months.  And it testifies to the old adage not to judge a book by it's cover.
The tables are on an open air veranda with a beautiful view of the bay in the background.

  1. That pizza sounds fun to eat. Although I would be very mild. :) Matt was excited to see this picture of "Mee Ma"
