Sadly due to the changes of flight schedule by Nauru airlines my time in Majuro this year (2019) was cut down to one night, and part of a day. But me being me I obviously made the most of it!
Dinner was taken, as always in the Marshall Islands Resort (MRI) where I hade the Marshalesse Poke, a variation on the Hawaiian Poke, a raw fish sashimi type thing. Not exactly sure of the difference in the two, but I’m a huge fan of a poke!
At night we decided to hit the town by visiting “The Pub”, literally the name of a pub in Majuro. Nice islahd vibes, and only $4 for a gin and tonic. Yes please!
Didn’t I mention street food? So, street food in the Pacific islands is not much of a thing, but in Majuro of a weekend the streets come alive! Basically everyone that seeks to own a barbecue lines every open space from central majuro to the airport barbecuing up a storm. It’s very heavy on pork, with ribs in BBQ sauce being a top choice.
In fact it’s fairly hard to resist getting something with the whole of Majuro having a bbq waft floating through it. I could have happily stayed another night, but alas we were off to Nauru, there really isn’t much in the way of street food in Nauru.
Majuro Street Food though, A OK by the Street Food Guy.
