Here is another reason: this weekend both the Capitol Hill and Bellevue locations are handing out freebies in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Will Mason, manager of the Monsoon on 19th, says patrons will receive gratis mochi dumplings dressed in a ginger syrup. What are mochi dumplings? They’re plumped with sticky rice, according to Mason.
The freebies are to be had Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
