Chi Town Hound look for good Asian/Japanese/Korean...
I am in town for one night and am looking to find a unique Asian inspired restaurant. I dont care what type of food but something that is unique.
Does Monsoon fit the bill?
Sushi? Chicago has sushi but not the kind of Japanese cuisine you have here in Seatown...
-For vietnamese, I would go to Green Leaf or Tamarind Tree in the Int'l District.
-Revel is pretty casual Korean/fusion mix--probably Joule (by same owner) is a better bet--LA has much better Korean than Seattle
-Japanese is great here--I would go to Nishino or Shiro's

I would first go for something you would be hard to find in Chicago.
I havent been to Monsoon yet, but they are a high end Vietnamese inspired restaurant where they are one of the few restaurants serving Wooly Pig pork meat.
You can try Malaysian at Malay Satay Hut. Reviews tend to be mixed on CH, but if you've never had Malaysian it would definitely be unique.
