SEAReview

Like a gigantic arcade, the 11-dish menu at Money Frog has a lot going on, but is still enjoyable across the board. It includes a decadent smashburger with bacon, cheese, and crispy soft shell crab, which feels like a follow-up to the excellent burger at Taurus Ox (this place is operated by the same team). Then there are plump momos swimming in tomato chutney, cacio e pepe yakisoba with numbing Sichuan peppercorns, and crackly condensed milk prawns (an upgraded version of honey walnut shrimp). The Capitol Hill spot somehow pulls it all off, making for one of the more exciting restaurants to have opened in Seattle recently. The mellow space has a ton of booths that work well for big groups, and it’s generally pretty easy to walk in if you feel like sharing a plate of buttermilk-dredged frog legs with some people you like.
