Where to eat in Long Beach -- near the Aquarium

Off tomorrow to visit the Aquarium and -- with the help of people on this board -- find an interesting place to eat lunch. Something good, uncommon, ethnic. Suggestions please.

    Georges Greek Restaurant on Pine Avenue. Great Greek food, have to get the salmon or the chicken Gyro. A wonderful restaurant with good service.

      You can walk 100 yards over to PF Changs-easily my favorite chain.

      Or take the Aqualink (info at the Aquarium-pick up is next door) $2 catamaran over to Alamitos Bay where there are 4 restaurants where you dock there.

        About a mile or so from the aquarium is Siem Reap, a cambodian-chinese place. the waitstaff will tell you which dishes are typically Cambodian.
        Siem Reap Restaurant, (562) 591-7414, 1810 E Anaheim St, Long Beach, CA.

        See link below for Cambodian restaurants in general - these are owned by people who've listed, yes there's a church's fried chicken and some pho places. Use your judgment.
