minnesota has one of the larger cambodian populations in the u.s (though only a tenth of california's). it's not large enough to support very many restaurants, however. the most well-known of these is cheng heng on university avenue in st. paul. it's been around for 21 years but it took until our 11th year here for us to finally go there. and i wish we'd gone earlier. i really enjoyed the food. i don't know much/anything about cambodian food but this tasted as i would have expected from looking at a map: somewhere between vietnamese and thai.
