I went to two good restaurants in Lowell. I found the first on Chowhound-Simply Khumer. I had never had cambodian food before and it was wonderful. Very crispy, hot and sweet spicy chicken wings, refreshing salad of cellaphane noodles, shrimp, chicken, mint, basil-like herb and hot ground chicken with peppers.
The other restaurant is Centro in downtown Lowell-italian inspired American sophisticated comfort food . Great service, beautiful, funky fun atmosphere. Worth a visit.
