Now, when I opened up my container of Drunken Noodles with Chicken, I was quite excited. The dish smelled wonderful and the portion was more than generous. And, on the first few bites, I thought it to be one of the best. But then the burning in my mouth took over to the point of nearly being inedible. This wasn’t the feel good burn I normally associate with this dish . . .

I visited the place last week and have decided to be brief then be gone: Average food, average service. Worth neither avoiding nor making a special trip.

The Pad Thai (although not exactly true to the opposing glamor shot) was probably the best I’ve had yet between Sala Thai and Pom’s Thai Taste. Crispy, juicy chicken and a well-balanced sauce actually delivered a decent amount of flavor. Certainly not the best Pad Thai I’ve had, and I’m quite convinced it’s not the best in town either. But it was pretty good, and I wouldn’t hesitate from picking some up for a lazy weeknight dinner.

Over Mekhong Thai does not make my list of go-to places for Thai food in Portland. After we ordered, I noticed a table stand that was their Pho menu. Maybe I’ll include it in my tour of Portland’s Pho dishes, but I will keep searching for the best Thai in Portland.
