I had lunch with a couple of my colleagues at one of my favorite ethnic spots - Phnom Penh in Chinatown. They are not...ahem...the most adventurous of all eaters so I tried to play it safe with my order. To be honest, I didn't order well.The food was great (IMO), but it didn't form a successful gestalt...so my friends left unimpressed. Oh well...more for me.
The order comprised of an "amuse bouche" of a light pork bone broth (mine had lots of marrow. Deeelish); the Garlic Chicken Wings, Green Papaya Salad with Dried Pork, Black Pepper Squid, and Bahn Xeo (Vietnamese crepe). (For some reason, my celphone didn't save one of the pictures - their famous chicken wings).
Phnom Penh is considerably pricier than the typical Vietnamese restaurant...so be prepared...mains run between $13 to $16.
