Cambodian Cart Sok Sab Bai Debuts Brick-and-Mortar

New, 3 comments


[Avila, 4/5/13]

It's official: Cambodian street food spot Sok Sab Bai is off the street, having settled into the SE 21st brick-and-mortar digs that most recently housed Bara Sushi. Chef Nyno Thol, who owned both concepts, announced the switch last month, shuttering his six-year-old Japanese spot to fully concentrate on Sok Sab Bai's restaurant potential.

In its new location, the brick-and-mortar version of Sok Sab Bai features some menu favorites from the food cart — pork belly buns, caramelized chicken wings, grilled chicken plates, and hearty bowls of soup and rice porridge — in addition to new items like a fried striped bass (that serves two), a chicken and banana blossom salad, and prahok ktis (a ground pork and eggplant dip). UPDATE: Here's a look at the entire opening menu, downloadable in .pdf form here.

Hours of operation: 11a.m. to 9p.m., Monday through Saturday; 10a.m. to 8p.m., Sunday.
