How to meet expats in Phnom Penh?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Yeah I think the op probably found some friends in two years since this post as they only posted four times.

Or they left.

Bassac Lane is intern paradise. Do not pass Go, do not Collect $200, but you can Instagram your heart out between there and Pontoon on your amazing Cambodia intern experience. Outside of that slender strip with a bubble each end, dangerous stuff happens where "Khy-Mers", as moronpats often call them, live and breathe, don't get close to those unless you already have a Gofundme page ready to invoke. #GrizzledExpat :-)

I think the best way to meet them is to walk up and ask them "Are you an expat?" If they say "No, I'm just visiting to see temples and such like", then you can strike them off your list. If they say "Yes, I've been living here for ages! " You should inform them that "I am too!", everything will be jolly good afterwards. If they are over 30 years old don't talk to them as they are obviously just disgusting pervs only out for one thing.

Sundance on 172
Red Fox on 136 and 172
Vibe - 172
Oscars on the Corner -104 (after 10pm)
Taco Kokopellis on Sundays from 5pm (can’t think of the street)

Those are good spots to start.
Taco Kokopellis #42 Street St 19z, Phnom Penh 12211
I can understand Sundays for the live music, but I have never understood this type of food.
And what is this dish called?

Looks like one of the little Gekko fellows may have dropped in! That happened to me many years ago at a restaurant in Seim Reap once, two of them fell from the lightshade above the dinning table and landed in my Khmer curry. :facepalm:
