Some mornings, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, especially if we eat in Cabramatta. Usually the place is noisy, crowded and colourful. At 7am it’s the exact opposite, almost meditative. The pace is slower and you do get a chance notice things you don’t when Cabra is busy.
Dong Son on Park Road is quickly becoming our favourite breakfast haunt. It’s run by Cambodian-Chinese and has been operating for around 20 years. They seem to always be open, early or late. The menu is on the wall in four languages, Khmer, Chinese, Vietnamese and English. The staff speak all four languages too, some more successfully than others!
While the menu is extensive, from individual meals through to dishes your order to share with the whole family, for breakfast, we always order the same thing (when you’re on a good thing…); Phnom Penh Noodle Soup (below) for me and Fried Beef Noodles (above) for Walter.
