Akun Charan – Thank you very much Miss Kim (Photographs by Mark Ulyseas)
Miss Kim runs a small restaurant, No. 37, which is opposite the Terrace of the Leper King (not far from Bayon Temple, Siem Reap, Cambodia). Like many Cambodians she struggles to make ends meet. Working long hours and travelling long distances to the market and back. Yet she wears a smile, a pleasant disposition that hides the day to day fight for survival. She will be a mother again in the months to follow. But she has faith that her God will provide for her family. These are some of her signature dishes. Lovingly made and served piping hot with rice (Baiso).
