The Khmer culture has mastered the use of herbs and spices to create rich flavors without the use of fats and meats. Though similar to Thai cuisine, its distinction lies in its ability to create full flavor without the use of chili. Each dish is built on fragrant herbs and spices, such as galangal, lemongrass, garlic, kaffir lime leaves, star anise and turmeric. 

Chef Nath carries on the spirit of Khmer cuisine by delivering the best-quality ingredients, carefully balanced, but draws from her Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese heritage to create dishes all her own. Her creative instincts draw her to innovative cooking methods and integration of local ingredients such as Hatch red chile or dry roasted cumin and coriander. Chef Nath often blends in grated daikon and legumes to add depth, body and nutrients to her dishes. 

You will find Chef Nath’s creations surprising, engaging and satisfying, true to the tradition and always ready to incorporate the best new ingredients the market can deliver.
