I have a little chat with the store manager here and he tells me that their restaurant updates their menu regularly, while the interior is rotatable upon the office direction. Mekong Merchant is in the same group of The Deck, Saigon, so their price is relatively high. But worthwhile when they serve European food generally. According to the staff, I am acknowledged that all of their bread, ketchup, onion sauce, chili sauce are homemade. Organic food lovers will definitely fit in right away.

The cottage influenced roof is what amazes me. They give you an instant tranquility, and I just love the al fresco seatings on wooden benches. If it doesn’t rain so much during summer, I will definitely hide here under the shades.
