OTTAWA Mekong -- take-out

errant | Dec 29, 2005 10:18 AM

Waaah! What a disappointment! Expensive and not very good. On the bright side, the eggplant in black bean sauce was tasty. Um, but that was it really. The Pad Thai was inedible. I let out an involuntary shriek of disgust when I opened the styrofoam box. One acronym will describe it -- CSI. Fourteen bucks down the drain. The pork rice paper wraps were uninspired as were the dumplings (to be fair though, dumplings rarely travel well). The fried rice made all of us feel queasy. It was weirdly creamy. Blech.

And I like the Mekong. Certainly not last night though.
