A sad day for the Chinese food lovers of Pittsburgh. Although I live in Cleveland these days, we'd still make excuses to pass through Pgh anytime we were within 50 miles, strictly to hit Mekong.

The employees are kind and work with you, not like some places where they seem to work more with the menu. Their signature Mekong noodles are my favorite but I'd recommend... More
