Opened in 2010, Mekong serves up tasty little authentic treats inspired by the cultures of the famous river's continent. Thus you find Pad Thai and Rogan Josh rubbing shoulders with summer rolls and fish cakes, served in a fine setting on Rio’s most famous gastronomic street, Dias Ferreira.
Chicken Tikka Massala has been added along with a fish curry from Goa, and the adventurous drinks are well worth sampling too - the homemade ‘Mekong Infusion’ serving as the basis for a variety of tempting cocktails like the Meh Jito and Caipikong. The laidback atmosphere makes all the difference with the sides open to the street and on Wednesday nights DJs providing the soundtrack.
