Biscuits and Gravy are a rare culinary find at eateries in Cambodia. Nearly as rare as hen’s teeth. Since Tex-Mex chef extraordinaire Mexicali Mark moved from Charlie Harper’s and SHV, no other restaurant has picked up the Biscuit ball and started serving that magnificent breakfast delicacy.
So naturally on my present sojourn to Kampot for Pchum Ben I had to head over to Senor Sushi’s to sample their biscuits and white gravy with sausage. It’s not only the only game in town; it’s the only game in southern Cambodia that has biscuits and gravy on the menu. Halleluiah baby, Halleluiah!
Senor Sushi’s ambiance is laid-back and cordial thanks in no small part to the graciousness and hospitality of the owners Shawn and Kari. They’ve had quite a number of adventures and traveled extensively. Good raconteurs.
The much anticipated meeting of their biscuits and gravy and my gullet was a mixed bag. The white gravy with chunks of sausage was superb. Now’s the tough part, cause the owners are so nice I feel a little guilty mentioning anything negative. That said, I need to address the biscuits. To be circumspect one could say they lacked freshness – to be brutally blunt, one would say damned stale.
I did query Kari about how often they bake a batch of biscuits. She replied usually every three days or so!!! Golly, no wonder they were so heavy and dry. Biscuits have a very short shelf life, 2 or 3 hours at most. Three days to pushing it way past the limit.
I love biscuits and gravy and even with that given; I couldn’t choke them all down. Even tried feeding some to their adorable puppy; he took it under the couch and chewed on it awhile. Not sure if he finished it off either.
I bet if I had gotten freshly baked biscuits the meal would have been transcendental. With three day old stale biscuits it was a morning of digestive disorders. As they say in Creole, “me belly da hurt”.

Centrally located and bright orange, it is easy to find.
The owner is a friendly guy and will have a drink with you any time of the day and can tell a lot of tall tales.
However, there is no sushi bar and the sushi menu is limited to frozen tuna and shrimp, and the rice is completely wrong. As far as I can tell, the owner is not trained as a sushi chef.
The Mexican food is slightly better.
The ceviche ($4) is a small portion and the chips were soggy from the humidity.
There are music "jam" nights when the owner features himself and his very limited repertoire as the entertainment.
Three thumbs down.

Good tunes, ideal Japanese-Mexican menu and absolutely delicious cocktails. The Chupacabra is a must try off the specials board.

Now located in the town centre this eatery delivers an excellent Mexican food menu, I didn't try the sushi as my dining companion was in an anti-sushi mood, but having heard the owner talk about his sushi and local aficionado's talk about how much they enjoyed it, expect really good Californian style sushi. The place is hospitable and social. and has a really good atmosphere. It restored my faith in Cal-Mex food. Most enjoyable visit.
