Sculpin IPA on tap at a Vietnamese restaurant? Yes. A Randell that pulls Stone Ruination through citra hops, ginger and fresh chili, at an Asian restaurant? Of course. You can only be at Mekong when you see these things. And by the way, the food is excellent. Oh, and the prices are terrific. And, of course, the staff is a riot, and they know a ton about beer. What more do you need? Itís nirvana.

Visited for a late lunch, mid-afternoon on New Yearís Eve and was surprised at the relatively sizeable crowd. Quirky joint -- the feel of your average Asian restaurant, but festooned with breweriana. They had a rock-solid lineup of 12 or so drafts, including a Hardywood Stout run thru a randall with peppermint canes. Other than the one local offering, the selection was decidedly Belgian. I didnít look at the bottle list too hard, but it looked like it had a similar slant. We dined on some yummy food and had a great time overall. The beer was actually a nice complement to the spicy Vietnamese cuisine.

Itís impossible to enter this place and not see the passion for beer this place has. Not only are the walls of the restaurant and the bar being covered with beer memorabilia, but so is the entranceway. The restaurant and the bar area are separated in clearly delineated rooms. I didnít check out the bottle list because the draft list was so good. They had over 20 taps including 3 theyíve been saving since 2009. They have such an attention to detail they not only the beer but what kind of glass itís going to be served in. The food is fantastic, reasonable priced, and very large portions. Iíll definitely be back.

I just finished the leftover food from this place. Damn. A definite must-stop in Richmond. Located west of town on Broad Street it looks very nondescript. Definitely doesnít get marks for curb appeal. The inside, however, is nice. The food is outstanding. I had catfish in a pepper, scallion, bacon and garlic sauce which was just outstanding. Portions are ample for good prices. There is a good chance youíll pay more for your beer than your food. Lots of choices on the menu. Extensive bottle list focusing on Belgians with some other regions represented. They now have draft beer with 5-6 taps. Beer prices are good, especially the bottle prices considering the restaurant markup (~16 for all of the Belgian 750s). Plenty of parking in the back. I went on a Friday night (big mistake) as the place was absolutely packed. I timed it right though as I got the last free table and there was quite a line as I left. Overall great food, great beer, great prices.

I was very disappointed with our visit here. A quick side trip off I-95 in a suburban strip mall, decent parking available, we came for beer and dinner. Service was slow even though the restaurant was only 10% full, beer list large, but unorganized. No one knew what beer was on tap right in front of me and multiple beer tap lists were flying around some with kegs that had kicked days ago. The beer I had no one knew what it was. They did allow samples which was nice and Iím not sure if they were charged or not. Tap list is large, nothing really caught my eye though. Some bizzare beers on tap were actually mixtures of unknown beers combined into a seemingly real beer that had a brewery name and beer name. I asked about those and was told, "You know Ommegang Hennepin? Well we can just make that here by blending other beers." What? Bottle list enormous, but nothing of interest either. Food was just not up to par. Peanut curry sauce was not good. The food was bland or greasy. Rice paper spring rolls very poor. Fried baby squid was very good, but so much was on the plate this one needed to be shared in a big group like calamari. They did not have soft tendon Pho which is a common staple. That just blew my mind. The menu probably has 300 different dishes you can order, which is a pet peev of mine. Can reduce the menu down to 20 items. Decor is drab 1990s Asian restaurant. Didnít really "flow" for me: the theme, the food, the beer. Disjointed and needing an overhaul.

The beer selection at this place is astounding and the food is great, what more could you want? How about a bottle of 2004 Arrogant Bastard? or a 2000 Samiclaus? or perhaps a bottle of Three Philosophers inaugural brew? Youíll find all of the above at this place. Iíve never been a fan of vietnamese food, but iíll definitely be back to this place for sure. Over the years, An has transformed this place into an EXCEPTIONALLY top notch beer mecca. You must go here. often.

The bar is in the back, beer drinkers should definitely head there to see all the taps. The place is covered in beer posters and the beer list is pure quality, split 60/40 US/Belgium. The staff at the bar is knowledgeable about what they are serving, which isnt surprising considering the beer list. Enjoy some Pho, a nice craft beer and the game on TV!

Update: Now a nice selection of taps to choose from. Always good beer here. Lots of special events so keep an eye out.
This is decent Vietnamese restaurant. The food is quite good and the service was very nice. If you didnít know in advance, you wouldnít expect much for a beer selection here, however the manager is a big beer fan and keeps the place stocked with a nice selection of bottle, primarily belgian. This is a bottle only bar, but for Richmond itís selection is second only to Capital Ale House.

Stopped here for lunch recently based on recommendations from this site. Honestly, when I first drove in to the parking lot I though I was being Punkíd. However, when I entered the restaurant it all made sense. The wall behind the checkout is covered with several "Best Of Richmond" and "All About Beer" magazine covers. In the corner are several magnums of various craft beers. The theme is Vietnamese as you may guess from the name and the restaurant certainly carries this decor as well but it makes certain you know this is a beer destination. Service was outstanding. The selection of beers was well above average. The food was good although I am far from an expert on Vietnamese food. The food was very reasonably priced. The beer prices were average for similar establishments. Overall a must if in Richmond and worthy of its praise as a beer establishment.
