One of the best things to happen in 2020 was the return of Phnom Penh Noodle House. In early spring 2020, the restaurant reopened, once again serving excellent dishes like fried hay cung rolls, mee katang noodles, and their grilled meat sampler. Their platter of pork chops, chicken, and short ribs gave us all the joy we usually feel at a summer BBQ without having to deal with charcoal in wet and rainy weather. The boneless chicken thighs pack a great lemongrass-y punch, and both the pork chop and short ribs have this sweet and sticky marinade that clings to every char mark. It’s been well-documented how bad of a year 2020 was, but we should all be thankful that Phnom Penh is back.
