Exploring New York highlights cool spots around the city that are worth checking out. This edition takes us to the border of Clinton Hill and Fort Greene for Vietnamese eats.
Mekong BK is a fairly new (and welcome) addition to the Fort Greene dining scene. In an area that can get pricey, Mekong BK offers traditional Vietnamese fare at reasonable prices. Stop by for noodles or a big bowl of pho and then enjoy some drinks at the bar in this relaxing spot.
Recommendations: Bun with crispy spring rolls (vermicelli with delicious sauce); Pho (hearty Vietnamese soup); Bahn Me (Vietnamese sandwich on Baguette with pork and pickled veggies)
Cost: $15 for soup or noodles, $23 for more refined entrees
