Hooray! More American fast food coming to Cambodia!

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.

@Bitte_Kein_Lexus I cannot speak for all the guys on this forum but I certainly did not move abroad for the food. I am guessing most guys did not move to Cambodia for its famous Khmer cuisine and there is nothing sad at all by liking a nice burger.

The BK's here are run from Vietnam (of course) by Vietnamese firm Imex Pan-Pacific Group Inc (IPP) who runs the Cambodian Burger King venture with local company HSC, which is owned by businessman Sok Hong.
In Thailand it is a different company called Minor International, who takes care of the franchise.

This probably means that the entire production line infrastructure is different too. Although the main feel and taste of the Whopper here is decent, I still think that it's a tad better in Thailand, who also have the double whopper cheese with bacon on the menu (personal fave) and the option of mayo with your fries, (for us continentals).

I am aware of the bad things those products are full of, but who gives a damn, just don't eat it every day, keep a lo level of stress and all that.
