Indochine Kitchen + Bar: Phnom Penh Alternative
Don’t get me wrong… I love the food at Phnom Penh (that famous Vietnamese/Cambodian restaurant located in Chinatown). But it’s always so busy there that it can take a long time to get a table if you don’t show up early.
If you’re looking for similar food (a bit more stylized) in a visually, more modern restaurant… you just have to head over to Indochine Kitchen + Bar on East Broadway. We’ve been here a number of times since they opened and have tried most of their menu items. Everything is quite tasty (not exactly like Phnom Penh but good in their own right).
We dropped by for lunch one day and the place was practically empty. Which is surprising given these Indochine Garlic Butter Chicken Wings ($12) that you can order here. Juicy meat encased in a lightly crisp exterior… Mmm!
Thit Kho ($11) is a Vietnamese dish with spicy braised pork shoulder that’s perfect when served over rice. The chili and fish sauce gives the pork a slightly sweet but spicy caramelized taste.
The thinly shaved slices of raw beef in their Butter Beef Carpaccio ($15) is slightly cooked from the citrus vinaigrette. Superbly tender (that’s why it’s called butter beef) and texturally contrasted by the fried garlic chips.
As their name suggests, they also serve a number of drinks here. It’s a great spot to drop by for some wings and a sip of your favourite libation.
