When you want to escape the Pike/Pine noisiness but stay in the Capitol Hill, head to 19th Avenue - it’s like a whole other very calm dimension. A particularly relaxing place to eat on this block is Monsoon, the sister restaurant of Ba Bar (our favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the city). Monsoon has a great menu, too - but we’re particular fans of their Happy Hour, where you can get discounted snacks like tamarind chicken skewers, shrimp chips, imperial rolls, and sausage sliders with hoisin aioli.
