Its official. Well, even more official-er than before: You can too be vegan in Micronesia.
The Rusty Anchor, a bar with pool tables and one of the best views on the island, has started making wood fired pizzas, and get this, the owner has learned to make them vegan.
As we leave Pohnpei for the US in a few days. Tonight we went tonight to say goodbye to the owner, who is also a work-friend of Mr’s, and he made us spectacular, thin-crust, vegan pizza with eggplant, mushrooms, capsicum, tomato, onion and his special recipe tomato and chili sauce.
It was so good. Paired with the gorgeous view, some purrs from the friendliest cat on the island and some lemon, lime and bitters (the only bitters in the country) it made for a fabulous send-off.
If you are heading to Pohnpei and fancy yourself some vegan pizza, head over to the Rusty Anchor (in a safe but derelict hotel building, also called Rusty’s, or Wayne’s bar) and tell Wayne that Keira sent you for vegan pizza. Make sure to tell him how spicy you want it.
