Brief Angkor Borei Report [San Francisco]

Dave MP | May 24, 2007 11:04 AM

I went to Angkor Borei last night for Cambodian food, part of a large party. We had a LOT of food, including a few things I hadn't tried before (and many that I had). The seafood here is really the highlight for me, and I found other dishes to be less interesting.

Fish with tamarind sauce was delicious. Big serving of sauteed fish topped with sweet and spicy tamarind sauce; contained lots of garlic, bell peppers and chili peppers. Served and eaten with slices of cucumber.

The cold noodles appetizer consisted of cold noodles (surprise!), cucumber, carrot shreds, bean sprouts and a delicious coconut milk/fish/curry broth that got spooned over everything. I had never had this, I'd definitely get it again.

The ahmohk is still my favorite dish here, and it was great last night. This fish mousse is really delicate and flavorful, lots of lemongrass and a soft texture with chunks of fish and shrimp. Served with a sauce of lime/chili/garlic/fish sauce. I highly recommend this dish if you haven't tried it.

Spinach leaves appetizer was great as usual. I should start making this at home.

Last highlight for me was sauteed spinach with what I believe are soybeans. Small brown beans, very flavorful addition to the simple sauce.

I enjoyed the papaya salad, squid salad, various tofu/chicken/veggie dishes too, but none were super special in my opinion.

Service was wonderful as usual, this is a great neighborhood spot.
