On a recent visit to Fresno, a Hmong colleague suggested Angkor Restaurant and recommended a pork liver dish and Cambodian Pho. From a scan of the multi-page laminated menu, we guessed that might be #14 Rice Soup (strips of pork liver with blood cubes) and #16 Angkor Special Noodle Soup. Both were good, but my Rice Soup was a bit bland until the server brought me a bowl of salty chili-based condiment that really sparked it up. As we were finishing, she gave us recommendations for a return visit. #59 Stir Fried Internal Pork with Pickled Papaya was probably the liver dish our colleague had in mind, as well as #48 Spicy Beef Soup. I’d also like to try $61 Lab, #1 Beef Salad and #56 Sweet Sour Cat Fish Soup.
Don’t come for ambiance – Angkor Restaurant is a utilitarian space in an uninviting strip mall off E. Olive Ave., but we really liked the food and it's open late. Open Mon.-Thurs. 9am to 12am, Fri.-Sun. 9am to 1am.
