a couple weeks ago we had the privilege of going out to dinner with two of our favorite people, brian and shannon. mike and i have been wanting to try the food at phnom penh for awhile so we thought this would be a great opportunity.

the restaurant is in chinatown surrounded by small markets and chinese stores. it doesn't look like much from the outside but there is often a wait during peak lunch and dinner hours.

we ordered the fried chicken wings and the butter beef which are the most popular items on the menu. we also ordered a few other items but they were not as memorable.
the fried chicken wings were amazing. i could eat them all day. they are topped with garlic and onions, and comes with a black pepper lime sauce. oh so yummy and definitely worth the trip.
the butter beef. i know i know it doesn't look very appetizing, but it is very good. butter beef is a plate of thinly sliced rib eye covered in a soy vinaigrette, with cilantro, garlic and other spices. it is barely cooked. i was a bit taken back when the waitress brought it to the table but i'm glad i gave it try. definitely will try it again.

mike and min give phnom penh 4 stars out of 5. check it out and try the chicken wings and the butter beef, you definitely won't regret it.
