Melanie Wong and I invite you to a Chowhound dinner at Angkor Borei, a little-discussed Cambodian gem in the Outer Mission. This place is well worth the trek. I highly encourage fans of Phnom Penh or Battambang in Oakland to join us. I really love this restaurant and want other hounds to try it.
Wednesday, April 30th at 7:00 pm. Well order family-style, of course. Entrees are $7-$10 and appetizers are around $7. Corkage is $5/bottle. Bring cash, please. And, as Melanie put it, well "leave a tip for Chowhound," so bring a little extra cash to stuff in the hat well pass at the end of the dinner.
Please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (put Angkor Borei in the subject line).
Heres my original short post on Angkor Borei:

Heres a random web review that I think is fairly accurate.
The menu is fairly extensive, but here are some highlights:
--Fresh Spinach Leaves (Mien Cum): fill a leaf with diced ginger, chile, lime, red onion, peanuts, dried shrimp, toasted coconut and chefs sauceroll it up and eat in one bite. Yum!
--Squid Salad: unbelievably tender squid with mint, lemongrass, cilantro, red onion, carrots and peppers. This is the best version of this classic that Ive ever had.
--Beef Salad: similar to Thai beef salad with mint, bean sprouts and cucumber. Also the best Ive had.
--Nhoam Lahong: an estimable green papaya salad.
--Crispy Rice Chips: served with anchovy, ground pork, coconut milk and tamarind concoction that gets wrapped in big lettuce leaves.
--Charbroiled Beef Skewers: stuffed with fresh water chesnuts and pineapple.
--Prawns Baked in Foil: with tamarind sauce and cucumbers, carrots, cilantro, etc.
--Ahmohk: mild curry fish mousse served in a banana leaf basket.
--Clay Pot Mock Duck: with noodles, spinach, zucchini, carrot, mushrooms, etc. in yellow curry sauce.
--Black Sticky Rice with Mango and coconut sauce for dessert (the best!).
The 24th Street BART is about a 10 minute walk down Mission. The 14/Mission, 49/Van Ness/Mission, and 67/Bernal Heights all run by on Mission. The 24/Divisadero is another option, which runs down Cortland. The J-Church also stops nearby on the other side of Mission.
Parking can be tricky around there, so please give yourself time.
