Wasabee Sushi: 105 E. Chestnut St.
I first wrote about Wasabee Sushi back in 2008, but since that post I have been back more times than I can count. Over the past eight years this place has really grown on me now my favorite sushi restaurant in Bellingham. They have several vegan rolls to choose from, and the prices are very fair.
At my most recent dinner there I had three different rolls, the oshinko (pickled daikon radish and cucumber), the yamagobo (pickled burdock and cucumber), and an avocado and cucumber roll. All three rolls were delicious, although I always love anything with avocado most, especially when the avocado is just right in terms of buttery flavor and texture.
Wasabee has a great atmosphere and is a place where I really enjoy dining, whether my husband and I are dining alone or if we are meeting friends. It's comfortable yet also feels a little special. I find it easy to relax and enjoy conversations there. And whenever I get a craving for sushi, this is the first place that pops into my head. Even writing about it now is making me want some! Unfortunately, Wasabee is closed on Sundays and Mondays, so when you get a craving on a Sunday, you have to wait a couple of days before you can act on it...
I am really glad Wasabee is in Bellingham and that they have delicious vegan sushi options. They have really proven over the years that they are (and deserve to be) a local favorite, and if you haven't checked them out yet, I hope you will!
