Monsoon Bellevue Vietnamese Restaurant

There are not many restaurants that serve tasty food in a nice decor in Bellevue, but Monsoon is a very nice option that has never disappointed us.

We discovered Monsoon eight years ago in Seattle (615 19th Avenue East) and really enjoyed having dinner there.

Bellevue and Seattle restaurants are also open for lunch.

Trophy Cupcakes… and Party!

I don’t really like cupcakes. Most of the time they are plain, dry, and too sweet.

But I need to confess that I like the Triple Chocolate Cupcake from Trophy Cupcakes. Made with French and Belgian Chocolate and in a mini size, they are realllllly good! With less sugar, they would be perfect!


Each year, around October 1st (my daughter’s birthday), we order minis. Here are this year’s cupcakes!

Trophy Cupcakes, 4 locations:

Wallingford Center, University Village, Pacific Place, and The Bravern – Bellevue
