Copper Hog in Bellingham
Stopped by this place yesterday for a pupu and a beer. Large, varied gastropub menu, reasonable prices. Took the server's rec for the "Pork Wings", which are single pork ribs, Frenched on one end, and apparently rubbed/smoked/BBQ'd singly. Glazed with what I think I remember was a honey-chipotle sauce and served with a blue cheese dip, a la Buff Wings.
These were REALLY good, some of the best BBQ I've had in a LONG time. It was so good, the small serving size (2 ribs per appetizer) wasn't disappointing.
Anyone else been there and can rec something else from the Copper Hog?
The bone marrow is great! I also had the mac and cheese...but it was not anything to write home about. The beer selection was nice- but a bit skimpy on the wine selection. I will go again for sure.
I really liked the place but agree that it is not a quiet place to chat (especially with your loved one). I felt like it would be nice to invite the staff from work to all meet up - where talking loudly and sometimes missing a word or two is not such a big deal.
I had a nice seared tuna sandwich there a while ago, very rare, on good quality bread, with appropriate accoutrements. Perhaps a tad oily (grilled bread) for me, but very tasty. I had colcannon as the side, but I don't think that is on their menu any longer. My companion had some kind of sandwich and the beet salad. Thumbs up on the salad, don't remember what his sandwich was. I'm not a beer drinker, but I like a Kriek on the rare occasion that it's on the menu, so I had one there. Generally a good craft beer selection for those who appreciate that. I'd probably go there more frequently, but I find it is often too loud for conversation.
