I live in Los Angeles, but come from a VERY long time Bellingham family. (My great grandmother was the first Euopean person born in Sehome, later to become Bellingham).
Whenever I visit Bellingham, I always make a point to get to Oriento, it is simply one of the best chinese restaurants on the west coast!! And a great value to boot, especially their lunches!
Pros: Fabulous Food, Great Service, Very reasonable $$
