Seattle Weekly's Description

When Seattle eaters can't face one more bowl of pho, but desperately need a steaming hot bowl of broth to see them through yet another chilly day, they tend to turn up at Sam Ung's outpost of Cambodian cooking. Phnom Penh serves upstanding noodle soups, but eaters who stick around will also discover the sticky chicken wings, grilled short ribs and mee katang, which benefits immensely from a dollop of the house hot sauce of roasted chiles, garlic and dried shrimp paste. (A quarter buys an extra serving if you're taking your Phnom Penh to go.) Like many Asian restaurant owners, Ung has a harrowing life story. More unusually, he's written his memoirs in English. The slim book's sold at the restaurant.

    Affordable, unique, easy seating but always busy, expansive menu, chef / owner is rumored to be a celebrity in Cambodia. Try the signature noodle soup.
