"So many Australians love travelling around Asia" said owner and founder of Chippendale's Mekong and Bistro Mekong Dr Stanley Quek. "By bringing Mekong to Castlecrag, I'm hoping to encourage Australians to challenge their taste buds and try new cuisines. Castlecrag is like a little oasis – relaxed and sophisticated, at the same time. It fitted with our vision for Bistro Mekong perfectly, and I think will be a wonderful addition to the neighbourhood's budding food scene."
I have to agree that Bistro Mekong is set to win the hearts of the North Shore locals. The location inside the revamped Quadrangle Shopping Village offers patrons an alfresco dining experience away from the busy main road, perfect for a casual dinner for couples or families.
The menu has a variety of dishes to suit all tastes, whether you are a lover of seafood or prefer the bolder flavours of Cambodian and Thai curries. There are also plenty of vegetarian options. Families will feel welcome with a choice of kid-friendly dishes such as pork and prawn dumplings, egg fried rice served with Chinese greens or some Vietnamese fresh spring rolls with vermicelli noodles.
Bistro Mekong is also planning on holding a regional dinner series once a month and offering weekly dinner specials that will really appeal to families. Like the Bistro Mekong Facebook page and be the first to know about their specials.
I will definitely be back soon to work my way through the delicious menu.
