Phnom Penh (Chinatown/Strathcona/DTES)
When I told my friends Minna and Jay (The Network Hub) that I had never been to Phnom Penh they looked at me as though they had seen a ghost. “How is it possible that you are a foodie and you’ve never been to Phnom Penh?”, they both asked me. I had to smile sheepishly. A few days ago, our common friend Ganesh (another entrepreneur at The Network Hub), Minna, Jay and I dined at Phnom Penh.
I am glad we did, because I had a chance to see for myself what the fuss was all about. Let me tell you one thing – it’s a pretty packed place. I ordered egg noodles with chicken and beef, which were good and filling. I think I’m so used to spicy food that I didn’t go completely crazy on the noodles, but they were really tasty. AND the chicken wings. The chicken wings at Phnom Penh are famous, and they have good reason.
Overall, it was a lot of fun to have dinner with Ganesh, Jay and Minna, and to try a new place. I’ll have to come back another time, but at least I have had the chance to know what Phnom Penh is like. I have crossed one of the items in my to-do-list!
