Cambodian/VN community on Fordham Road: any Cambodian restaurants?

US Chinatowns were discussed on the Brian Lehrer show on WNYC this week, and mention was made of a Cambodian/Vietnamese community on Fordham Road in the Bronx. Does anyone know where, exactly? And (bated breath) are there any Cambodian restaurants there? I hope I hope I live in hope, this cuisine is wonderful and woefully unrepresented in NY since the demise of the SE Asia Brooklyn people's restaurants.

  1. I've been to the area around 194th St and Grand Concourse. I noticed a few Cambodian/Viet markets and Viet restaurants. I'm not sure about what's on Fordham Road nearby.

    Didn't the Brooklyn Cambodian restaurant reopen, after a lengthy delay, in the UES?

    1. re: Joe MacBu

      Across the street from World of Taste there is (or certainly was, last I visited) another Cambodian-owned market...

      Cambodian Cuisine didn't survive its transplant and closed earlier this year. Besides Kampuchea and (for what it's worth) Num Pang, I don't know of any Cambodian restaurants in the city.
