Cambodian Grilled Beef Sandwich at Sekong By Night
The day after CenPho's new Cambodian restaurant, Sekong By Night, opened, a couple of friends and I couldn't wait to try it. What we found was a surprisingly cute little spot done up with burgundy walls, Buddha art, and brocade tablecloths, with a dirt-cheap menu of tasty Cambodian dishes.
I started things off with an iced jasmine tea and a spring roll, filled with bits of chicken. It was nice to get a spring roll that was a little bit bigger than usual, freshly wrapped in tender rice paper. Instead of imposing a portion of two or three, you can order these individually. The accompanying sauce was sweeter than the nuoc cham dip served with the Vietnamese version of spring rolls (it's hard not to compare the two cuisines).
