A Cambodian friend of mine took a few of us up to Lowell a couple weeks back to eat at Heng Lay. Really enjoyed our meal.

Started off with Papaya Salad with a side of Fried Chicken. Papaya Salad was excellent with a perfect mix of tangy and sweet. The Chicken was fried perfectly crispy as well.

Prahok with Scrambled Eggs was also very good. Nice strong flavor and paired well with the Side of Veggies especially the tomatillos.

The Chicken Curry was incredible and by far our favorite dish of the night. Awesome curry with a strong coconut milk flavor that I love. Huge portion as well that we had no issues finishing.

Next was the Hot Pot. Great broth with once again a pronounced coconut and curry flavor. We had Tripe, Quail Eggs, Shrimp, Beef and Vegetables served for the Hot Pot. All of which were great.

Finished off with a drink made of Condensed Milk, Carbonated Water and Egg. Great way to finish the meal.

I did not notice any reviews on CHOW of this restaurant and definitely believe it is worthy of a visit if in Lowell. The owners were wonderful as well, great people and great food. I will definitely return.
