Reathrey Sekong Top 100

Reathrey Sekong isn't Phoenix's only Cambodian restaurant, but it is certainly the best. The cha kreunh, or lemongrass stir fry, is perfection — a heaping pile of beef, chicken, or tofu stir-fried with onions, green beans, bell peppers, and kreung spices, paired with a small bowl of jasmine rice. Also on the must-order list here are the Cambodian pork chops — grilled and marinated in garlic soy sauce — and, for the meat-averse, the kathiev cha koansuh (ask for these student noodles with tofu and the vinaigrette instead of the oyster soy sauce). The dark maroon walls and numerous buddhas offer a calming dining experience that works either for a co-worker lunch or a date. New Normal: Reathrey Sekong now has a small and well-decorated outdoor patio in the parking lot near the entrance.
