If you’re in the mood to visit one of the more unique restaurants in the Bellingham area, then Pepper Sisters should top your list. Pepper Sisters is the only restaurant that I know of in this area offering Southwest-style cuisine. What’s more, the food is consistently well-prepared and satisfying.
Southwest-style cuisine? What does that mean? Here are some of my favorites from the menu: the Blue Corn Rellenos are mild green chiles stuffed with chevre cheese and rolled in tasty blue cornmeal. If you like the idea of eating blue corn then you could also try the Blue Moon Enchiladas, made with blue corn tortillas. The Potato-Garlic Burrito, the Chicken Elote Enchilada and the Posole (a Southwestern hominy stew) are also on my list of delectable goodies at Pepper Sisters. All the meals come with Sopapillas (which is, I assume, the Southwest’s answer to puff pastry) and honey butter.
The atmosphere at Pepper Sisters is relaxed and casual. This, combined with the bright colors on the walls, the upbeat music and of course the food, make it one of my favorite places to visit on a rainy evening. For a short while I can effortlessly pretend that a change in latitude has (forgive the allusion) changed my attitude. It’s possible that others in Bellingham have the same daydream while eating at Pepper Sisters…or maybe it’s simply the good food. In any case you’ll probably have to wait for a table if you go during peak dinner hours. Don’t worry -- have a beer and some chips and know that it’ll be worth the wait.
Heading South on State Street, Pepper Sisters is a block past Dream On Futon and next door to Spinnaker's Photo Processing, on the right.
