Hmmm…Yes! Khmer food…let see…. I don’t exactly know but I’m going to put down as many as I can think off..
1. Slaw Machu Krung
2. Khor Kho
3. Nom Pa chouk
4. Pro-hok (Can’t beat that!) Once you taste it, you’ll never go back!
I used to hate these food when my mom prepare them for dinner when I was a little kid. I now wish I could make them as good as she could.September 4, 2003 at 4:48 pm #187449
Ever since my parents divorced and my mom moved to NM, I’ve been trying to re-create her dishes. So far, I can only cook ma-choo such koh and ma-choo yuon.
My dad tried also, but has failed miserably. He improvises too much… and tries to use a shortcut for everything. My step-mom is the same.
I guess there’s no hope for me. I’m stuck eating out.September 5, 2003 at 1:05 pm #187459
