The Dark Side of Fast Food

Discussions about restaurants, cafes, coffee shops or bars in Cambodia. Feel free to write any reviews you have, whether its the best burger you've had in Phnom Penh or the worse pizza in sihanoukville, we want to read it! Discussions about Khmer dishes are also in here, or you can leave your own. If you own a restaurant, feel free to let the expat community know about it here so that we can come check it out. Found a favorite cafe or have a place we should avoid? Tell us about it. Asian recipes & questions are always welcome.

So are we still meeting at Burger King for our weekly catch up?
Sure, but the KFC around the corner involves less effort for me - can you come here instead?
Why don't we combine the 2? A KFC chicken skin whopper.

A heart attack in a box, as I like to call it.

Nice! Hey, do you reckon we can get the home delivery guy from one to pickup from the other and deliver both?

Super Size me was Morgan Spurlock, not fatboy Moore.

And it's been debunked that he was loading the results by also eating more off camera. His doctors had him figured around 5000 calories a day, and the math on what he was eating came up significantly short of that. Not to mention no one can replicate his results:

Interesting article, OD. I've always maintained that Morgan Spurlock is actually the original milf hunter (Milfhunter.com). Maybe his wait gain was due to viagra withdrawal.
