A&J Seafood Shack
A & J is a tiny to-go window in a small strip mall parking lot about a mile away from Phnom Penh Noodle Shack, which happens to be run by the same family. As much as we like that spot for gamey soups, this place is our go-to for all things seafood: think salt & pepper shrimp, grilled oysters, and fresh spring rolls. You technically be sitting outside on the wraparound patio facing a huge intersection, but you'll feel like you're steps from the sea. Our top pick is the crispy fried salmon, which is pre-cut and fried into tender hunks with mango salsa and sweet tamarind sauce.
