Cambodian Street Food on the LES?

According to Wednesday’s New York Times, Cambodian street food is hitting the Lower East Side:

KAMPUCHEA NOODLE BAR
In the 1970’s and ’80’s, Cambodia was known as Kampuchea. Ratha Chau, a native of that country, who was wine director and manager of Fleur de Sel, will feature street food from Southeast Asia at this Lower East Side spot. (October) 78-84 Rivington Street (Allen Street).

Unless JetstarAsia opens up the lucrative Pochentong-JFK route, I’ll be accepting guest reviews. Cheers to NYT for the geography lesson and Jinja for the tip.

  1. It’s great to see that street foods of Southeast Asia are hitting the major metropolitans in the US; Chef Zak Pelaccio of Fatty Crab in the meatpacking district of NYC did the same for Malaysian street food! :)

  2. Phil, thought you might appreciate knowing that this noodle joint will be steps away from 99 Rivington, the site of the album cover for Paul’s Boutique. Also, Cambodians will surely be displeased to know that while dining at this restaurant they will be forced to watch the frequent street traffic to and from New York’s most storied sex paraphernalia store, Toys in Babeland, 94 Rivington.

    ps: you need spell check for these comments … who can spell paraphernalia?
