One of the few great residuals from the aftermath of France's Indochinese colonization in the 19th century is the baguette sandwich (banh mi in Vietnam, num pang in Cambodia) — and Sekong is not to be dismissed in that arena. Its pâté and pork version, stuffed with slices of pork meatball, cucumber, and sprigs of cilantro, features homemade pickles of spicy, julienned carrot and green papaya, and a schmear of pâté and mayo that gives even Lee's Sandwiches a run for its money.

If you're looking for flashy, fun and flavorful, try the Cambodian Volcano Grill. The communal tabletop grill, as well as its alternative hot pot rendition, is the most expensive item on the menu at $25, but both easily serve between two ravenous people or four of average appetite. Our DIY grill selections included fresh enoki mushrooms, baby bok choy, and shrimp, as well as thin slices of tender beef and squid that tasted like the lost abalone of my youth. Slap some butter on the circular grill before adding your choices — you won't be disappointed.

Who could possibly have room for dessert after a feast like this? We sure didn't on either occasion, since we prematurely stuffed ourselves on savory selections. We were sorely tempted, however, by the sweet-tempura-battered banana and sweet potatoes (jake jien and thraloang jien) that are sold by the piece, coconut jello (jahouy ktheeh), banana tapioca pudding featuring large tapioca pearls and fragrant coconut milk (jake ktheeh), and especially by the grilled corn smothered in a sweet and salty caramel sauce.
