I have eaten in Mekong Merchant endless times due to the pretty courtyard, viby atmosphere, wonderful friendly and helpful staff and because of its consistently good food. Breakfasts are particularly good - well cooked bacon as requested, eggs nicely sealed on top so that they are still soft and runny and without that slimy texture often associated with sunny side up fried eggs, golden brown sausage well cooked all over as specially asked for, and super tasty, and soft hot fried tomato. I usually skip the mushrooms as I only enjoy button mushrooms but the chef normally adds a little extra bacon or something else as I am not having the mushrooms. The breakfast is served with a very generous basket of mixed bread, including a croissant, and hot delicious coffee and juice. I would say that there is only a token pat of butter and I always have to ask for one or two extra pieces but this is a general feature of most restaurants. As far as other meals are concerned, the pizza is pleasant enough and the chef will cook any variation you might ask for, for example Hawaiian pizza is not on the menu but the chef will happily add ham and pineapple to a Margarita pizza and the staff are wonderfully accommodating. I also particularly enjoy the lentil soup and goats cheese salad, which has wonderful greens and delicious beetroot with it in a very tasty salad dressing. I have just returned to Ho Chi Minh City after 4 years away and very disappointed to find that Mekong Merchant's fantastic Eton Mess is no longer on the menu but nearly all of the other old favourites are still there, including their can't be beaten mince pies at Christmas time! Due to the tasty food and wonderful staff and manager Juan, eating out at Mekong Merchant is an ongoing pleasure.
