Monsoon in Capitol Hill was a lucky stumble.. we had intended to go to a restaurant across the street but it wasn't open yet (got really hungry at 5pm.. feed me!) but I'm glad to have landed here. Ever since our trip to Vietnam, we've been even more obsessed with the cuisine, and Monsoon gave it just enough of a modern twist yet preserved the traditional flavors I love.
Crispy organic tofu with lemongrass, sweet onions, and roasted Shiitake mushrooms. Maybe because I love my mom's fried tofu, but it's really so simple and delicious especially sautéed with tons of garlic.. though I'm convinced that anything with tons of garlic would be tasty.
