What's Cooking?

I missed it! Oh, now I'm really sad. That looks so good. I've been craving Thai nonstop lately. That would have really satisfied my craving! That pork laab looks delish.


Hi Kirk! I used to man the shaved ice stand at Nisei Week too!

I don't know if I've ever had Cambodian food before... too bad the chicken skewers weren't so good. Mmm....getting hungry and it's only 10:30am! =(


Kirk, thanks for posting the link to the local festivals! I'll definitely have to bookmark that for future use since I love these types of events! I haven't had papaya salad in a long time- might have to attempt to get some this weekend since you put the idea in my head :)

I remember seeing this in the paper, saving the clipping, then forgetting where I put it. Now it's too late but I had a vicarious experience thanks to you. :) Our family will have to go next year.

By the way, my parents grew up eating green mango with bagoong alamang (Filipino salted shrimp paste). My Mexican friends eat it with salt and chili powder.


Hi Kady - You know I'll have to work out some kind of calendar of events, or something like that.

Hi Kristy - You know, those kids were really working hard.

Hi Joan - It was fun to just cruise around, and try out the food.

Hi Reynila - You'll find this Festival to be very laid back and relaxing - at least if you go early enough. All the vendors were very nice. The Missus loves bagoong rice....'nuff said.


I too had thoughts of attending but completely forgot about it. Nice write up Kirk.


Hi Jack - Thanks, this was a nice, laid back festival.


Do you know any other Cambodian Festivals in San Diego this coming year?


Hi Lindy - I'm frantically trying to track down a festival....there was nothing last year at Colina Del Sol.....I'm hoping someone can help us out!


In the past few years, the Cambodian New Year celebration at Colina has diminished due to lack of vendors and participants. Last year there was a small celebration at the temple up the street, Wat Sovannkiry. If there is no celebration at Colina you can try the temple. If your really adventerous you can head up the Long Beach where there is a larger Cambodian population.
