Easily overlooked on a corner of Ballard's Market Street, eating at The Monkey Bridge is not to be missed. Unlike the usual "pho restaurants" this one exudes charm and warmth besides an extensive menu.
Choose noodle or rice "creations," soups, salads, or my favorite, the chicken baguette served with a cup of rice soup. Each entree is presented beautifully and is satisfyingly seasoned and delicious. Many for a price of a fast-food combo, but this is "cuisine." The menu's the same for dinner as lunch so I opt for the lesser lunch price.
Arrive early or you may wait to be seated in this tastefully decorated Vietnamese atmosphere. A lovely server will serve you promptly. Within the surroundings you'll notice the bamboo water fountain, chopsticks and for fall, a pumpkin carved with a monkey face. Also, you'll likely discover the mystery behind the name Monkey Bridge. Guests I took there for lunch commented, "We'll be back." So will I.
