Although it's true there's virtually no Cambodian food in New York, that's not an absolute. There is a place in Greenwich Village that specializes in sandwiches something like Vietnamese banh mi, but made according to Cambodian culinary principles, and that place is Num Pang Sandwich Shop. While it began life three years ago with a slender number of fairly predictable sandwiches, the menu has evolved considerably since then, and now one of the place's most interesting features is sandwiches concocted by gastronomes like Mario Batali and Floyd Cardoz, so there's always something off the wall among the choices. (A portion of the proceeds from these is often donated to charity.) Further branches have been and will be popping up around town. 21 East 12th Street, 212-255-3271, (10003)
