Tried to stop by Khmer Kitchen, a new Cambodian place at 6th & Morris Streets on Monday but they were closed. They were kind enough to let me in and give me a menu, and they seemed very nice. Place is getting a lot of traction on the local food blogs of late and (FWIW) stellar reviews on Yelp. I don't know very much about Cambodian food, so I'm excited to learn about an entirely new cuisine.If anybody wants to go check this place out for lunch in the next couple of days, gimme a holla. I'm in!

I went here last week. Food was very good. Service was friendly but quite slow. Highlights were prah-hok kahteeh (caramelized ground pork with spices, coconut milk and prah-hok, which is fermented fish, with veggies,) fried calamari (super tender) and grilled, seasoned meatballs which were a steal at $1.50 for 4 decent-sized balls.
