The menu offers a wide selection, even the vegetarian section. The tofu, vegetables, and shrimp in spicy chili sauce was excellent. Often times, restaurant food is too greasy, salty or not fresh and compromises quality ingredients. This dish was tasty and fresh. There was an ample amount of shrimp and fresh, stir-fried vegetables in a not too spicy sauce. I would have liked a bit more garlic but otherwise, was palatable. The price was reasonable. You can choose jasmine or brown rice. My friend, also vegetarian, ordered the eggplant, garlic and vegetables in spicy sauce and was equally pleased. The atmosphere is warm, staff very accommodating, and I look forward to trying so many more of their vegetarian dishes. This is one of a kind of Vietnamese food in Richmond. Many Vietnamese in Richmond frequent the restaurant, it was filled to capacity on this Saturday evening and many came for carry out, all which speaks for Mekong's reputation as to quality and authentic ethnic fare. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Richmond area. There is ample parking in back.
