Carambola

Portuguese name, "Cambodian" restaurant. My wife (who is Cambodian) and I ate at Carambola this Friday evening. Spring rolls were small and fried, but delicious; served with mint and lettice for grabbing and peanut sauce for dipping. The soup of chicken broth, shrimp and tomatoes was also good. Waitress was disappointing. She waved to friends on the street while we ordered, socialized the entire time with the manager/owner, ignoring us, and did not stop by once while we were eating.

I ordered the poulet dhomrei, which was exceptional. It is a blend of chicken chunks, peas, pineapple, coconut milk, yellow curry, and lemongrass. My wife had the "grilled" pork tenderloin, which was most likely grilled on Monday and reheated last night. The flavors were wonderful, but it arrived lukewarm and dry. we would eat there again, but request an alternate waitress.
