Ba Bar and Monsoon
Seattle’s stylish Vietnamese mini-chain Ba Bar and its sibling restaurant Monsoon will celebrate with bánh tét, a traditional rolled sticky rice cake filled with cha lua (Vietnamese ham) or mung beans. It will be available at Ba Bar locations on Saturday and all week long at Monsoon. If you want to end your meal with something sweet, Monsoon will also have banh troi nuoc (glutinous rice dumplings in a sweet ginger syrup, also known as “happiness dumplings”).
