Minnesota has one of the larger Cambodian populations in the US, though it’s not very large per se: at about 7500 people, about a 10th of California’s population. And there aren’t that many Cambodian restaurants: Cheng Heng and another whose existence I learned of only after posting a review of Cheng Heng on my blog. Anyway, I know there’s almost no one else from MN on FTC but given some recent talk about Cambodian food on the LA forum I thought there might be some interest in this.
I know nothing about Cambodian food–this was my first-ever Cambodian meal–but I really liked it. It was almost exactly what I would have predicted by looking at a map: somewhere between Vietnamese and Thai food in terms of flavours and intensity. I’d be interested in checking out a Cambodian place in LA on our next trip to compare.
