I tried take-out from the new Monkey Bridge restaurant in Ballard (Vietnamese food). I did not call to order ahead, and it took a very long time to take my order, let me pay, and send me on my way. The space is nice - they are trying for some atmosphere with some pretty silks on the walls and a water fountain in front, so it's not just an asian fast-food/take-out joint, but it's also not anything fancy.
I got an order of spring rolls - they were tasty, but nothing special.
For my main, I got the Vietnamese pork chop (with fried egg). It was served over rice with a little cabbage slaw. All in all, it was tasty and if I'd never experienced the heaven of excellent Vietnamese porkchops before, I would not have been the least bit disappointed.
They also threw in a chicken/rice soup, gratis. The soup was great - reminded me of the congee I make.
