Restaurant in Phnom Penh: The Sushi Bar

Another food/restaurant post.

I sound like a broken record now but I'll say it again. Phnom Penh has new establishments opening almost every week, notable are restaurants and cafes. Food industry is definitely booming in this part of the world.

Last Thursday lunch, hubby and I went to a new Japanese restaurant called The Sushi Bar. It's one of the new in town.

The Sushi Bar is in Boeung Keng Kang 1, easily accessible from our place.

We got there just a few minutes after 12nn and only a few tables were free. A few minutes later, the place was full! I knew right then that we had to wait a little while for our order. And we did. Good thing I had a small slice of pear before leaving the house.

We also had a small bowl of appetizer to pick on while waiting for our orders.

Grilled Salmon Fat Belly Set $7.00. The set included rice, miso soup, and steamed egg with mushrooms. Loved the salmon!

Hubby had Yakisoba $5.00. He said it was okay.

Aside from our individual orders, hubby and I also shared a set of sushi $9.80. I didn't notice that this set had no salmon on it. But there was tuna so it was good.

Hubby and I always have this "takaw-tingin" syndrome. We always order more than what we could consume. And this is no different. The food was good but it was just too much. I was even able to finish my own set.

Our bill totaled to $24 including one small bottle of water and one coke light. This is definitely the cheapest Japanese meal we had in town.

We have been to several of the Japanese restaurants here (we love Japanese food!) and we have never seen a restaurant got full like this. So we're guessing the reason the place was teeming with customers was because of its reasonable price.
