I was so excited when I first heard Mekong Diner was opening in the Crafton/Ingram shopping center. While there are some solid restaurant options in the west side of Pittsburgh, they are a little bit harder to find. So to have a new Thai/Burmese restaurant opening within walking distance from my house was definitely a reason for excitement. I approached them to see if they'd be interested in a video to help promote their restaurant, and they happily agreed.
With this video, I wanted potential customers to learn more about the food that Mekong Diner prepares, but more importantly, I wanted to share the story behind the restaurant. Mekong Diner is very much a family business, and every member has an important role in helping the restaurant run smoothly. By learning more about how the restaurant operates and seeing the teamwork involved, you gain an appreciation for the care that goes into the food.
Mekong Diner primarily serves Thai food, but they are starting to introduce more Burmese dishes to their menu. Some of my favorite dishes on the menu are the Summer Rolls and the Pad See Ew noodles. The avocado boba smoothie is also a nice way to tame the spice (which you can choose from a scale of 1-10). Whether you live in Pittsburgh or are just visiting, make sure you stop by to try their delicious food. We are looking forward to sharing more stories of our favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
