  • Fair Trade Day

    Expat Advisory

    Last month was the observance of World Fair Trade Day and many of the groups working in this area got together at Phnom Penh's National Cultural Center to celebrate it. The crowd included craft producers and the general public, checking out information booths, playing games, watching some performances and sewing a giant kromar together. We posed a few questions to organizers Nina Howard (Artisans Association Cambodia) and Annie Perng (Village Focus International):

  • The Backsliders Speak

    Aaron Leverton

    The Backsliders were in Cambodia for their first tour and they say they'll definitely be back. The day after their wildly successful Phnom Penh FCC gig, the Sydney-based roots-inspired blues trio took it easy. Drummer Rob Hirst and guitarist Dom Turner sat down at the scene of the previous night's triumph for a chat with EAS about blues, architecture and life after the Oils.

  • Italy on the river: Pop Café

    Bronwyn Sloan

    Tucked away under the FCC is a favorite haunt for expatriates seeking Italian comfort food with a touch of class. Pop Café da Giorgio, owned, as the name suggests, by Italian Giorgio, is cool and classy, but its prices are very friendly on the pocket.

    Pizza, lasagna and home made pasta are billed as the specialties of the house, and an impressive wine list leaning towards Italian vineyards top tempt diners from the blackboard of specials as they walk in.

  • Local Chef Heads to Cambodia to Help National Team

    Jim Cook

    If you like Japanese food, and you live in Dothan, you've probably heard of Joe Cook.

    Joe serves up hibachi with a side of fun almost nightly at Mikata Japanese Steakhouse, delighting customers with his culinary skill, witty banter and crowd-pleasing cooking tricks.

    But just like the onions he slices, Joe has layers. Underneath the smiles and jokes, there's a deep guy who wants to help make life better for folks in his native Cambodia. Joe chooses to do this through baseball.
