Sophon Seattle

Dinner Table Setting
There’s a saying among our elders, ‘No good prahok, no good friends’. 

When it comes to Khmer food, many people don’t know much about it. It’s as hidden from the international cuisine as the temples of Angkor Wat were from the world for centuries.  Prahok is probably the most unique and important ingredient in the Khmer cuisine. Most dishes you’ll incorporate it in stir fry or boil as a soup, while accompanying meat that’s best grilled over an open fire. Here at Sophon,we serve our version of prahok with a delicious cut of coulotte. 

As in many cultures, fermented food like prahok serves a purpose. When there were no fridges and times when not much food was available, prahok delivers important protein and amino-acids. Sometimes called ‘Cambodian cheese’ because of its strong and distinctive smell, prahok originated as a way of preserving fish for use out of fishing season. It offers the umami and depthness of flavors that beautifully complements the meatiness of steak. 

We invite you to give our Sach Ko Ang a try next time you’re in!

An Homage to Khmer Cuisine

This space will create many memories. Memories amongst one another & dialogue amongst the community. Just like any other household rich in cultural history, this household will differ in how and what we cook. Sophon’s one promise is that the story in the food that we will be sharing with our community in this space is authentically our great-grandmother’s and authentically our family’s. We strive to continuously amplify the Khmer resilience & our diaspora through traditional & contemporary plays on Khmer dishes. Definitely not your ma’s cooking. 🙏🏾🇰🇭

We warmly welcome you to celebrate with us,

SOPHON
