More Asian food & art

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

A few weeks ago, Seth Kugel wrote another great Weekend in New York column, this one about where in New York you can experience the food, and sometimes art, of Bhutan, Nepal, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, and Indonesia.

Anyone have other favorite places representing these countries? I was a big fan of Cambodian Cuisine when it was in Fort Greene, but I haven’t yet been to the Third Avenue location, which took a terribly long time to open. Here’s the Times review of it as well as Kampuchea on the Lower East Side.
