Mekong Restaurant Review

: No rush, no fuss, just solid Vietnamese pho, spring rolls, banh mi, curry and stir-fry. Dishes like chicken marinated in “special” sauce and thit kho tieu pork, which seems almost like carnitas, can be quite good. However, if the kitchen is busy, plan on a long wait. (That’s not such a bad thing when the weather is nice enough for people-watching along South Grand.) Mekong is notable for its split-personality dining rooms: the front is a decorous restaurant, the back feels like an Internet café and the second-floor bar, Upstairs Lounge, is where DJs cater to the young hipster crowd. This late-night clientele makes it profitable for Mekong to keep its kitchen open for business until 1 a.m.
