WG Mekong

My friend noticed a shop serving Thai food for lunch a few shops away from Chow Yang Food Court in SS2, PJ so she suggested we go there for lunch one day.

While waiting for the dishes to be cooked and served, we bought a packet of these sago balls (MYR 6 nett) with minced pork and peanuts fillings to share between the 6 of us. The fillings is on the sweet side and it is quite tasty. I feel that the skin is very well made from sago because it is not sticky and just a little chewy giving it a nice texture. 

Fried pork with garlic - MYR 10 nett and we had two plates because the portion is quite small per plate. Tasty. The pork may look dry but it is quite succulent.

Two of us shared one portion of rice which is quite small. I think it is about MYR 2 per plate of rice.

All 6 of us had a glass of pandan and lemon grass tea each (MYR 2 nett). It is only slightly sweet and to me, it tastes quite like 竹蔗 (Zhu Zhe) boiled sugarcane drink.

Steamed Siakap Fish with Lime at MYR 35 nett. Siakap is known as seabass in Asia and barramundi in Australia according to FAO. For this price, it was expected that the fish was medium in size. This dish is very appetising due to the tangy lime juice.

Stir fried minced pork with basil - MYR 8 nett. I find this dish a bit too spicy for me so I did not eat much of it.

Stir fried kailan at MYR 7 nett per portion but I think this is a larger portion so it should be about MYR 14 nett. Total price for 6 pax is MYR 103 nett so it is about MYR 17.20 nett each.

A no-fuss interior. We were one of about 4 tables that were occupied during lunch that weekday.

The menu shows nett price. Please click on the above and below photos for a larger image of the menu.

We did not order any salad.

We did not order any tomyum soup for this visit. Perhaps our next visit.

All the dishes we ordered were from this section of the menu.

  2. Steamed fish is a beauty! Same as Libby, would love to try those sago balls. The minced meat with basil is one of our favourites at Mary's place here but they use chicken, pork-free place.
