Gasp! Oh no, the rumors are true! Mekong Restaurant on O'Farrell has closed. It was one of my favorite places in the Tenderloin for Thai food. Apparently, it will be replaced by a Middle Eastern restaurant.
We give quick-cooking orzo pasta the risotto treatment—toasting the grains first, then slowly incorporating hot liquid until creamy and starchy—for a comforting "orzotto." The rich egg yolk ties it all together.
