Khmer Lemongrass Beef Sticks – Sach Ko Jakak

Food plays a big part in culture. When you think of cultures around the world you associate certain food with each one of them. For example, when you think of Vietnam, pho usually comes to mind. I was trying to think of what food is best associated with my Cambodian culture. Lots came to mind. […]

Grilled Dynamite Mussels

Happy first day of Summer!! It’s grilling season! I love grilling season, but I hate grilling myself. I usually leave that up to the bf because I can’t even start a fire and I’m too scared to use the gas grill haha. When the bf does set up the grill for me, I usually grill really […]

Today we celebrate Dobby’s […]

Vietnamese Style Pork Chop

I love Vietnamese food. I eat it almost every weekend, especially pho (c’mon I live in freezing cold MN). BUT…My favorite Vietnamese dish has to be Com Tom (broken rice) with grilled pork chop topped off with a crispy egg. Though I love the dish I have never attempt to make it at home. Turned […]
