Narith Plong returned to Cambodia two years ago, having grown up in Montreal. October 2017 he opened Le Broken Plate, named after his father's village in Kanday.
The importance of this restaurant isn't just the chef's skill, or the imagination in the dishes (served in varying levels of omakase) but in his love for the products of Cambodia.
When you take his omakase, you are getting to sit in the sidecar as he barrels about the Kingdom hunting for the best, most interesting ingredients to be found. This one restaurant, and this one meal, is your best opportunity to sample what Cambodia offers in unique product.
Now, my only caution is that the Khmer (and the Quebecois) have a tradition of feasting, and the full omakase can be daunting in terms of portions. The chef's recommendation (unless you look like Orson Welles or myself) is to split the full omakase, and supplement with an extra dish or two.
Nice (but limited) sake and wine selection, too.
