If you’re feeling the late-winter blues, the Turmeric Okra Stew at Cafe Blue in Fairhaven might be the antidote to what ails you. It’s hearty, nourishing, and packed with unexpectedly bold flavors. 

The Grilled Chicken Vermicelli at Pho 360 is takeout at its best. It comes topped with veggies (for freshness), crushed peanuts (for added crunch), and fish sauce (for an unforgettable umami kick). 

 The Brisket Grinder at Extremes Sports Grill and Pizzeria is indulgent– and worth every bite. Melt-in-your mouth brisket is perfectly complemented by the creamy horseradish sauce, and an additional serving of homemade gravy takes this sandwich over the top. 

 There’s no wrong way to Build-Your-Own Bowl at Fairhaven Poke— but if you ask us, the ginger shoyu sauce is not to be missed. An extra serving of their seaweed salad is also highly recommended. 

 Next time you spot the Greektown food truck, order the 10 Hour Slow Cooked Lamb Leg Gyro. If the name alone isn’t tempting enough, know that it comes served with all the fixings– plus a side of fries! 

 Everything at Ashuri Baklava and Cafe is worth sampling, but if you have to pick just one, order the Breakfast Platter. It features some of everything and is best paired with their Turkish cardamom coffee. 

 We’re obsessed with everything on the menu at Nell Thorn in La Conner– and yes, this includes their bread. Nell’s Bread is hearth-baked from local grains, and the smoked tomato butter is unbeatable. 

 Makeworth Market knows how to deliver an artful caffeine buzz. The Honey Lavender Latte is sweet, aromatic, and so tasty you can’t help but sip it slowly. Order it over ice for a refreshing and crisp twist.
