I was never a fan of Khmer food. Especially the ones that cater to western palates. It's often bland, diabetic-sweet or lacking that spice that usually kicks me in my mouth.
My girlfriend and I were drawn in by their US$1.50 deep-fried spring rolls and free wifi but stayed for the chilled-out atmosphere and great-tasting food.
Dinner was so good that we came again the next morning for breakfast.
This unassuming "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant tucked away in a little street off the main road is Khmer owned and operated and you can easily walk past and not notice it.
Sure there's flies and cats about but no more than anywhere else. (It is still Cambodia, after all)
If you're expecting a Michelin-star restaurant, then i suggest looking elsewhere.
But if you want good affordable local food with the laid-back vibe, then this is it.
