Flavor Profile: Royal House Cambodia Cuisine in Fairfield
Most of us know about Thai and Vietnamese food — but Cambodian? A new restaurant in Fairfield, Royal House Cambodia Cuisine, is introducing it to the county. Cambodian cuisine shares with its neighbors ingredients like basil, ginger and lemongrass, but Mandy Truong, co-owner with her husband chef Minh, says it's lighter, and features more vegetables and fish. Cambodia is a country of rivers and lakes, bordered in the south by the Gulf of Thailand. A far wider range of herbs, vegetables, and fruits are eaten there than can be represented on Royal House's menu.
