Quite a few Canadians think of Bellingham as only Bellis Fair Mall and the other big box stores that line Meridian east of the I-5. If you venture to the west of the freeway, you’ll find a small city filled with funky independent stores and restaurants. Here Fiamma Burger is a contemporary burger joint with a west coast vibe. The curved walls are covered in strips of wood, the tables are raw wood and a long wooden communal table stretches the length of the seating area. The place emphasizes fresh, all-natural food and has a variety of different types of meat or non-meat options for their burgers.
We decided on a chicken sausage burger with yam fries and a beef Fiamma burger with cheese and garlic fries and ordered them at the till. Beside the till were many options for sauces (spicy mustard, yellow mustard, ketchup, mayo, chipotle ketchup, curry mayo, BBQ) to customize your burger or your fry dipping. Our baskets of food were brought out to us as everything is made to order.
The chicken sausage burger was extremely tasty and juicy. Juices were literally dripping through the wrap. The bun was extremely fresh with a nice crispness to the outside.The yam fries were cooked perfectly with just enough crunch and the chili lime spice was a good complement to the yam flavor. The chipotle ketchup was also good with these fries.
The Fiamma burger was fresh and the meat had good beef flavour but it was a little on the bland side. With the fresh bun, veggies and good cheese, it still was a decent burger. It’s possible the burger seemed a little bland compared to the strong flavour of the garlic fries. The large portion of fries was smothered in Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley and were so addictive!
Fiamma Burger has quality burgers for a reasonable price. If you want something different than just a typical beef burger then this is the place to head to. Don’t forget the garlic fries!
