Cambodian restaurant recommendation please

Since visiting Cambodia a couple of years ago, we have been trying to find Cambodian restaurants everywhere we travel...to no avail! :(

Since NYC is such a foodie city, I'm hoping that we might strike it lucky to find somewhere (preferrably in Manhattan but willing to travel to the other boroughs) that serves fish Amok (oh I'm salivating just at the thought!!).

Can anyone help please?

Thank you!

All sorts of ethnic food in NYC but not so much Cambodian. I cant think of a single one besides Num Pang which serves Cambodian inspired sandwiches (the catfish peppercorn one is very good)

Thanks Ziggy! I have been combing through your blog and didn't see anything so figured it will be a long shot posting here. Got to admit, we didn't eat many Cambodian sandwiches when we were there so this would be first.

Cheers!

We didn't find many sandwiches in Cambodia either.

The biggest Cambodian populations in the US are Long Beach California and Lowell Massachusetts so if you're ever in Boston you'll be able to find Cambodian restaurants (Lowell is near there, and Elephant Walk in Boston is very popular)

Thanks Ruthie. We'll be touring CA next year so more chance of Long Beach and will remember to ask on that forum nearer the time.

This one (Cafe Cambodge) looks interesting but unfortunately the other one is closed. Thanks NYWhiz.

Would you settle for Laotian? There's a very good one in Tribeca called Khe Yo.

@WEQueen - we went, we ate and we thank you for a great recommendation!! Unfortunately, their speciality of pig's head wasn't on the menu but what we had was AMAZING! We have even recommended it to friends who live in Brooklyn that never knew of a Laotian restaurant on their doorstep!
