Curry House: 2034 Main Street, Ferndale, WA
For quite some time whenever I have complained about the lack of local Indian food options, omnivores and vegans alike have told me that I really needed to check out the Curry House in Ferndale. And everyone who told me that ended up being right!
The Curry House is family-run and everyone that works there is really nice and friendly. They cater to people with a variety of dietary needs, whether it be omnivore, vegetarian, gluten-free or vegan. In fact, the Curry House is so vegan-friendly, they even mention that they have vegan options right on their menu, which you probably know is something I always appreciate.
Even though they have a statement about vegan items on the menu, I of course still had my usual series of questions to ask before ordering, but these questions were met with knowledgeable and friendly reassurance and the answers I received in exchange made me very happy! Just about every item on the vegetable section of the menu can be made vegan, and they substitute potatoes or coconut milk in for cheese and milk whenever necessary. In addition, their naan bread is vegan, as are their pakoras, which were phenomenally delicious.
I really like both the Allu Gobi (cauliflower and potatoes) and the veganized version of the spectacularly tasty spinach dish.
The food here is so good, so rich and flavorful, with that home-cooked authentic feel. The people who own and manage the restaurant aree warm and friendly. If you are looking for a place where everyone can get something delicious to eat no matter what their dietary needs, this is the perfect spot. And, if you are in Bellingham craving delicious Indian food but don't want to drive to Vancouver BC or Seattle to get it, then Ferndale is the place to go!
