Down-to-Earth Khmer Barbecue ClassicsYou can usually tell a lot about a local venue by the size of the crowd it draws. On this count, Mr. Grill excels—with a lively, mostly Khmer, clientele enlivening the open-air venue on Wat Bo Road on an almost nightly basis. As you might guess from the name, the house specialty is grilled offerings: fish, meat, and vegetable selections that customers can cook up at their table. It’s not exactly fine dining, but the quality is high and there are few things quite as transcendent as a nicely charcoaled piece of beef dipped in a simple lime-and-pepper sauce. Cheap beers and friendly service, meanwhile, add extra luster to this unpretentious place.
