The Other Lone Star Saloon in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Jun 02, 2016 3:16 am

An interesting write-up about OUR Lone Star, not the one in Houston, Texas. A cool article from the other side of the world:

THERE’S USDA CHOICE BEEF AND PORK SHOULDER ON THE MENU, plus slow-smoked baby-back ribs, fajitas, meatloaf and a famous chicken-fried steak—all crave-worthy, all responsible for the restaurant’s devoted following. One customer, in fact, orders the CFS for delivery every day. Want to put this spot on your list of places to try? It’s called the Lone Star Saloon. Be advised, however, that this place is not the downtown dive bar, nor is it located in Houston, Texas, or even the U.S. The popular haunt’s located smack dab in the middle of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

On a recent trip to Asia, we stopped in to see for ourselves whether the place felt like home. And it did, so much so that we immediately forgave owner Greg Hill for being a native of Dallas. Thousands of miles away from the U.S., such a distinction felt irrelevant, especially in the face of this monumental accomplishment: “To my knowledge,” Hill told us, “we brought the chicken-fried steak to Cambodia...”

Surprisingly, the CFS is one of the only things on the menu I don't like. That tasteless bechamelle-type sauce just doesn't do it for me. Must be a Texas thing.

There must be a Lone Star in every city of the world. However, Phnom Penh's is a good one. The one I miss the most is the Lone Staar (double "a" deliberate) in Washington Square, now a dinosaur park on Sukhumvit.
