If there's one thing I love about the PNW, I'd have to say that it's the food. If you've been to Bellingham, in specific, you'll find dozens - if not hundreds - of local restaurants thriving, even during these hard times. That's right; I'm talking about covid, which did a number on all of these hardworking restaurant entrepreneurs. So I decided that it's my duty, being a born and bred Washingtonian, that I share my all-time favorite local restaurants here in Bellingham, WA. So read below because you won't want to miss out on these!

Culture Cafe

As the name suggests, Culture Cafe offers a variety of food. Specifically Hawaiian & S.E Asian flavors. In addition, they make the best (if not only?) Mahi-Mahi burger in town. On top of that, their Poke (Poh-Kay) bowl is to die for. Besides that, you'll find entrees like their famous Korean Fried Chicken dish, their Hunters bowl, and even a beautifully decorated Tonkatsu Ramen.

Big Stick Barbecue

Hands down, by far the best barbecue in town. Don't forget to try their burnt ends - delicious! The brisket melts in your mouth like butter, and the ribs fall right off the bone. Their homemade sauce is to die for. But be sure to make a reservation in advance - that's right, they're that good!

Bluefin Sushi

If you like sushi, then you have to try Bluefin. I'm not a huge sushi fan myself, but my wife is. Fortunately, Bluefin offers various seafood, from deep-fried sushi to sashimi to teriyaki chicken; they've got it all! I would recommend the Funky Monkey for sushi and don't forget to try their teriyaki chicken bento box with homemade teriyaki sauce - yum.

I love to write. I love the process, the money, the feedback (including the criticism). I love everything about it. For me, though, it's never been for the recognition, or the fame, or even the money - what am I saying, I'll take the money - but primarily, it's always been about the passion. Hence, I only write about things that I'm truly passionate about. So you won't find a bunch of muddled junk here, no; only the best of what comes to mind.
