Le Broken Plate 

The menu was interesting; it was a fusion of Khmer and Japanese Western. Being my first time at Le Broken Plate, I had to try their tasting menu–9 courses (USD 80). I had the pleasure of chatting with the owner and he told me the Tasting Menu at Le Broken Plate captures a world cuisine. He also warned that we would be in for food coma and would need to take the next day off. Consider me warned. Steamed Edamame with Yellow Fin Tuna salad was the first dish to be served. It was quite a hearty portion for a starter. Interestingly, it had a tinge of Asian flavoring to it, with tossed crushed peanuts and sliced bird's-eye chili. Next, the fresh oysters came with sweet chili sauce and minced garlic. I’ve never had such garnishing on my oysters, but it tasted so good! Sweet chili is such a great substitute for Tabasco. I’ve always felt that Tabasco was too sharp for oysters, so I’m glad that I found a sweet substitute (pun intended). I prefer my oysters with just salt and lemon.
