Monsoon East Restaurant Review

: Sophie and Eric Banh brought a contemporary taste of their Vietnamese heritage to the Eastside. The younger sister of Capitol Hill’s Monsoon, Monsoon East offers the same fresh, vibrant cuisine. Chic décor and moody lighting create a tranquil oasis. Dishes are artistically composed and easy to share. Oyster fans will be drawn to the raw bar, which also features sushi. Happily, the menu offers many signature dishes, including crisp drunken chicken and tasty bo la lot beef, wraps made with peppery leaves around flank steak, which are then grilled into the tasty morsels. For adventuresome palates, order the Monterey squid stuffed with duck meat, basil and jícama, then grilled. A delightful Vietnamese bouillabaisse includes mussels, clams, prawns, Dungeness crab and squid. Dessert fans won’t want to miss the moist banana cake with coconut sauce. There's an extensive selection of wines from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. One drawback: The waitstaff is gracious but service can be slow.
