We were at the Anchor the other day for a work celebration. I hadn’t been there in a really long time. It used to be one of our favorite places to eat lunch, back when we were still eating out everyday (almost three times a day) and had no regard for our health. LOL. This recent trip reminded me of why I absolutely loved the Anchor. It’s a bar that serves amazing food. There’s not many of those around.
This is a picture of their hummus. It was yummy. Not as good as Bella Luna or MIF Deli of course, but it was quite good.
I believe these are the fish and chips. You can actually get homemade potato chips instead of fries. They’re great at the Anchor also.
This is one of the burgers, but I’m not sure which one it is.
These are the truffle fries, which are almost better than the ones they serve at the Flying Stove. I think what I liked most about them is that they are cut in thin slices and they’re fried to perfection. They are perfectly crispy. Best fries ever!
This is the salmon burger. I don’t know of any other bar in town that serves salmon.
The Anchor also has awesome chicken tenders. Brian and I will usually share the five piece. If we don’t order any drinks Brian and I could usually eat lunch for less than $15. Yet another reason why the Anchor quickly became a favorite of ours when we both started working downtown.
This is what I had — the grilled chicken sandwich with homemade potato chips. If you like potatoes, the Anchor is the place to go. They have regular fries, truffle fries, sweet potato fries, and homemade potato chips. Most places just have fries.
I’m partial to the Anchor’s sweet potato fries because it’s the first place that I got try it. Before the Anchor, I’d never had sweet potato fries before.
Anyway, the Anchor just has great food all the way around. It’s so good that I’m thinking of asking Brian to take me there next time we go out on a date.
