Mekong restaurant was a pleasant surprise, and I can’t wait to go back to try more of their dishes! The good quality of food stood out to me, especially compared to a few other Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants. The spring rolls, for example, weren’t just slapped together in a hurry with scarce offerings inside. The shrimp and pork were great and the rice paper was rolled tightly so that it didn’t get messy. I found the menu to be quite intriguing; with various dishes that featured chicken feet, curried frog legs, and roasted quail. I am always excited when a restaurant goes beyond the typical offerings in GR. Don’t worry though, because they have the beloved classics as well, such as pho! Our server was sweet and the prices are reasonable. You should go eat here.
I am Asian. I am a fat ass. Not physically obese, just mentally. Travel, cultures, learning, food and drinks are my loves. My palate is not very American, but I am indeed one, born and raised. My appetite is insatiable and I plan my days around what I eat. I often get pangs of guilt when I come to realize my gluttonous behavior, but I can’t change what I am. I love food, and I am very critical of it as well. While I am consuming it I tend to dissect, praise, criticize, or analyze the dish in front of me, whichever action the plate warrants. A combination of all three, perhaps. However, I am not a chef. I honestly do not know how to cook. Culinary arts is not my profession. Hence my blog, JustAGrainOfSalt.
