Meatporn to go on st 432

Dirty roadside meatporn

At about 5:00pm every day, the intersection of street 432 and 163 jams up with both traffic and the smell of barbecuing flesh. This stand does chickens: whole, pieces, heads, feet, and heart or liver kebabs; a few fatty barbecue cuts of pork; and whole quail thrown in for good measure. All grilled over the hot coals and dished up steaming hot into a polystyrene clamshell.

Taste the secret.

I wasn’t in the mood for fowl, so I went for a short rack of pork ribs, beautifully caramelised; served with a take-away pack of limes, salt, pepper, weak chili sauce, Vietnamese coriander (chee krassang tomhom(?)) and a stubby cucumber (3000r). There’s not even the vainest attempt at having seats: so get your meat and try and negotiate a path through the traffic home before your food congeals.

Location: Corner of street 432 and 163, close to Russian Market. You’ll see the smoke signal from about 3pm weekdays and keeps charring until the flesh is sold.

  1. Ah yes, that barbequed pork is a lazy mans life safer when the wife is away. Am not so keen on the chicken from those vendors, but the pork is usually very good. A couple of stalls on Monivong, just south of Sihanouk, often have duck as well, but it can be a bit hit and miss.

  2. Playboy,

    I’m pretty keen on eating my way up Monivong. I had a grand plan to eat at every place from Hua Nam just south of Mao Tse Toung until I got to Kampuchea Krom, but that has fallen by the wayside for the moment.

  3. Admin – that could take a long time !

    Plus a lot of it would get very repetitive.

    I prefer to mix it up as much as possible, Khmer on a Monday, Western on a Tuesaday, and an Indian on a Friday night – or something like that :-)
