American run place. Itís a bit outside of town so youíll need a car to get here. Decor is just a ton of kitsch, which they must have brought in themselves. American food. Iím assuming itís an expat hangout but it was pretty empty on our visit. The house beers were okay, but most Vanuatu beers arenít great so the Porter in particular made for a nice change of pace.

Probably to be considered a "must" when in Port Vila, the saloon has an incredible array of Americana-kitch that has to be seen to be believed. Cigar shop Indians, animal heads, and even mannequin harlots in Hooters T-shirts standing on the upstairs balustrade. Other mannequins are mechanical and talk to you. There is a stuffed kangaroo sitting on the loo in the ladiesí room. Music is apropos, too, with classic country mixed in with some Latin and even Leonard Cohen. There is also a trained cat, which rings a bell at the bar if it wants a treat. The food is actually fabulous considering where you are, to be able to eat Tex-Mex that has good flavor. They smoke their own meat and the ribs were as good as they smell. Their sauces were also excellent, as was the marinated chilis that come with the enchiladas. All quite impressive. The beer has a "kit" quality to it, but is clean and the best of the island. Both the lager and porter were drinkable. Friendly service and generally a whole lotta fun. Itís huge, too, with a giant banyan tree in the back.

Geez, where to start? Basically in the middle of nowhere, but itís on the road between Port Vila and Hideaway Island so all the taxi drivers know it. Just tell them itís the place with the big horse out the front (seriously). We paid 1000VT and 2000VT for taxis from the centre, not sure if we got ripped or not. On the face of it, itís a pretty shitty place. A Texan-themed bar, all darkness and neon in a place where everything is outdoors because the weather is so good. They do have an outdoor section, in fairness. The beers (pale and dark) are pretty average. Not massively faulty or anything, just quite bland. For the most part Iíd probably rather just drink Tusker. In spite of all this itís actually quite an endearing place, though I canít really put my finger on why. I guess you just go there and wonder how theyíre still in business. The brewery is surprisingly big, and bottling is supposed to start in early 2011. Food is classic burgers, pizza etc. Outside they have one of the most amazing trees Iíve ever seen. The roots alone are several metres high. Thereís a mechanised bull, pizza oven, cactuses, Texan flags everywhere, heaps of Wild West themed stuff.... Crazy place.
