It was lunchtime and raining. Again. See the date on this post? June 9. Raining and 54 degrees. Mother Nature needs to remind Heat Miser to visit Bellingham and give the East Coast people a break!

We went to Boundary Bay looking for two things: for it to live up to the recommendations and to liven the rainy day. Well. I think what might have gotten in the way was only 1server during the lunch rush and pub complacency.

The group ordered a kid cheeseburger, sweet & spicy red pepper chicken soup, smoked salmon chowder, spinach salad and a beef burger. The spicy chicken soup is an award winner, and it was delicious. My partner and I shared the spinach salad with its baked goat cheese medallion, cranberries and candied pecans. Excellent. The kid devoured her cheeseburger, chips, carrots and the garlic toast that came with the chowder. She was wholly satisfied with her meal. And the requisite crayons and coloring menu helped pass the time.

A patron just needs a simple, satisfying meal. Hot food hot, cold food cold. My partner sent back the chowder because it was not hot enough and quickly got a steaming bowl in return. My chicken soup was lukewarm, but I was hungry and ate it before realizing I should have opted for a steamy cup, too. The burger was ok (not hot). It’s bun was great – tasted like Ralf’s Bavarian.

A beer would have rounded out the meal. After all, everything seems better after a drink.
