The Reston area has a new entry for Asian food. La Ong Thai Bistro opened last week at Fox Mill Shopping Center.
La Ong is located at 2521 John Milton Dr. in the space formerly occupied by Five Guys.
It is a new business for owner Joe Wongchaikasem and his wife, Ying. The couple lives in Bristow, but has been eying a Fairfax County spot for a while, said Wongchaikasem.
Wongchaikasem has 15 years of restaurant experience. Ying Wongchaikasem, meanwhile, learned to cook from her aunt La Ong, who raised her in Thailand. The restaurant is named in her honor, Wongchaikasem said.
La Ong has the usual Thai favorites such as Chicken Satay, Pad Thai and Tom Yum, but also some very creative dishes as well. The Chicken Pad Thai spring roll features cellophane noodles, tofu, chicken and vegetables wrapped inside and there is red and green curry with a variety of meat choices on the menu.
La Ong is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Outdoor seating is available. Delivery is available in a three-mile radius. visit them online at www.laongthai.com.
