Chef Thierry Rautureau reviews Grilled squid stuffed w/ duck at Monsoon East
$$$ | Chinese | Asian
Bellevue
"The squid has a wonderful char flavor, which is delicious combined with a stuffing of juicy duck and basil. These wonderful treats are so little you can pop them right in your mouth."
Chef Matt Costello reviews Banana cake at Monsoon East
$$$ | Chinese | Asian
Bellevue
"Chef Eric Banh makes good, thoughtful food with a light hand. His famous banana cake is no exception. The sweet cake is steamed and drizzled with a savory coconut sauce. Delicious!"
Chef Ethan Stowell reviews Dim sum at Monsoon East
$$$ | Chinese | Asian
Bellevue
"There's something great about getting a bottle of racy Grüner Veltliner with dim sum, which is what I do here (it's much better than tea). Wake up late, head over to Monsoon, and start with a glass of wine—you'll end up having about three. Order a bunch of dim sum and then get back in bed. It's the best Sunday ever."
Chef Thierry Rautureau reviews Huế dumpling at Ba Bar
$$ | Asian
Capitol Hill
"These dumplings are stuffed with mung beans and caramelized shallots, and they come with a spicy soy vinaigrette. They're made with rice flour dough, which makes them so delicate and tender. The wonderful filling and texture make this a very satisfying appetizer."
Chef Mark Fuller reviews Grilled chicken vermicelli at Ba Bar
$$ | Asian
Capitol Hill
"This is just a good dish to get into and really eat. It comes with a hearty serving of chilled noodles, crispy imperial rolls, and grilled chicken with a bunch of fresh vegetables. Just about every time I go, I order this dish. Chef-owner Eric Banh says this is what he eats at home."
