Cooking With Rey “South East Asian Cuisine”


Authentic Southeast Asian Cuisine “Spiced Just The Way You Like”

It’s been cold and rainy so I’m serving my Chicken with Lemon Soup this week. Generous amounts of chicken served in homemade chicken stock with a delicate taste of lemon. A little toasted garlic sprinkled on the top and some chilies on the side in case you want to spice it up. Or choose one of your other favorite Southeast Asian Dishes. See my website for more information.

Recommendation for Cooking with Rey…
excellent, Cambodian-style restaurant
Rey’s husband and gracious maitre d, Joe, welcomed us into what must be one of the most beautiful, surprise settings behind the unstated elegance of the upscale entrances on this quiet street near San Sebastián plaza. And, that was the beginning of our 2 ½ hour culinary adventure. Brisk gin and tonic (real tonic and Bombay Sapphire), sweet and spicy shrimp, well done (in many ways) thick sea bass filet, and traditional Cambodian dessert. Opened 8 weeks ago, but with the ambiance and cuisine of a well-established “must eat there” restaurant with a bright future.

Recommendation for Cooking With Rey, restaurant
At the restaurant, Cooking With Rey, on Sunday afternoon was a delicious introduction to the art and taste of Cambodian cuisine. The “home restaurant” in San Sebastian Plaza is most attractive, with pleasant music, the collaborating atmosphere of co-owner Joe, and cooking done by Chef Rey.
Reservations are necessary, meal choices are limited, but superbly prepared. We plan to return!

Luisa Nelson: Thank you for making my birthday so special and memorable. My sea bass was delicious from beginning to end! The dessert absolutely grand AND the special drink was out of this world! To top it off, you were both two of the most welcoming and friendly hosts. Muchisimo gracias.

Recommendation for Cooking with Rey: By Cindy Benson Oh.. my…my…my… let’s talk about Cooking with Rey! An authentic eating experience of Cambodian Southeast Asian food prepared with such attention; you can taste the love! Seriously! Rey and her husband, Joe, have opened up their home and the invitation to come in and participate in a first-rate dining experience is beyond comprehension. Try it, it’s highly likely you will return again and again.
