Mekong River draws in Tulsa locals and visitors alike with traditional Vietnamese food, a low-key atmosphere and friendly staff. Seafood lovers should start with the Saigon sampler, a salad featuring an assortment of seafood, or dig into the fried crab wontons and seafood dumplings. Soups at Mekong River are served in hearty portions and feature savory meat and plenty of flavor. The beef noodles in lemongrass broth is a popular option, as well as the hot and sour seafood soup. Mekong River simmers the soup for hours to create a perfect combination of salty and sweet that pairs well with jasmine rice.
If you're dining with company, try the river feast for two. This dish provides all the ingredients to make your own rice paper roll filled with grilled shrimp mousse, seasoned beef and pork, rice noodles and fresh greens. Dessert at Mekong River is inspired by Vietnamese and other international cuisines. Try the che ba ba, a warm dessert soup with a medley of coconut milk, sweet potatoes, taro root, tapioca, beans and peanuts. A French-style custard with caramel sauce is also available, in addition to fried ice cream.
