At David’s Fresh Noodle (No. 213 13th Street, Phnom Penh, Cambodia; phone 855 12 351 890 or e-mail som_bath@yahoo.com), I had the best restaurant food of my three weeks’ stay in Phnom Penh, Nov. 4-23, 2012.

This little place was clean, with maybe eight tables, and there were many choices, not just noodles. I had fried calamari and hand-cut French fries that weren’t at all greasy for $2.90 plus a Coke for $1.

The restaurant was just a short walk down 13th Street from the National Museum. The owner runs a children’s charity (Palm School of Tom Village in the Tom Community of Takeo Province), so a lot of his profits go to the charity.
