Phnom Penh is a little Cambodian gem, says lil mikey, who loves the beef salad. It’s much better than the similar beef salad at Thai restaurants, he says–fresher vegetables, tender meat, and perfectly mixed dressing with peanuts.
He’s never had a bad dish there, but the wonton soup is just so-so and the beef Szechwan style has pieces that are too big to eat without cutting–and you don’t get a knife.
