Reno Chowdown: Great Thai meal at Moo Dang

SteveTimko | Aug 31, 201503:46 PM     1

The Greater Reno Grub and Gripe Group gathered at Moo Dang for what turned out to be another spectacular meal. The consensus of the group was that every dish was executed well and we would order them all again.
We started with the leafy garden rolls and fried wonton. The wonton was a standard version of the wonton but the sweet basil tamarind sauce kicked it up a notch. I love the garden rolls. The leafy vegetables (see my photos) enhance the sense of freshness. There’s mushrooms, carrots, lettuce and basil with nothing overwhelming the roll. We got one order with tofu and one with pork. The garden rolls are a must order for me.
We went with tom yum soup. All the pigs on the other half of the table ate the first bowl we got, so our half of the table got a special creamy version with shrimp. The broth was excellent. I’d never had creamy tom yum before and it was a nice change up.
For our entrees, we ordered ba-mee moo dang, which is red pork with meatloaf, bok choi, green onions and noodles. This proved to be quite popular. The pork was nicely done and the rest of the ingredients blended well with the noodles. We also ordered mee kra tee, which are noodles with a tomato sauce and tofu. Again quite tasty, although I liked it better when I added dry red pepper.
I arranged in advance for special menu item, three-flavor salmon. The flavors I believe were sweet, sour and salty. The group raved about it and how perfectly it was cooked. I liked the crispy texture.
We ordered the dishes family style. We had too much food and got out of there for less than $25 per person before tip. I think the group was quite satisfied.
